Comment 2 for bug 3593

At least from what I can tell, the vnc4server script doesn't try to load the font path from XF86Config or xorg.conf. A yucky but effective (for me) workaround is to manually add your fontpath from xorg.conf to vnc4server -- look for the line:

$cmd .= " -fp /blah/blah/";

It's commented out by default -- uncomment it and replace "/blah/blah/" with your (comma-separated) fontpath from xorg.conf. You could also just pass the "-fp" stuff in on the command line every time you call vnc4server.

If there is a way to get it to load the fontpath from xorg.conf, please let me know. That always seemed like the right way to do it.
