The chkfontpath command line utility is used to configure paths for the font server system.


The chkfontpath pulls in the xfs font server. For the purposes of ClearOS, a full font server is neither required nor desired, so this dependency has been removed.

It is still desirable to keep the chkfontpath package available since:

  • chkfontpath is required by many fonts, notably ghostscript-fonts
  • ghostscript-fonts and urw-fonts are required by ghostscript
  • ghostscript is required by cups and netpbm-progs (used in many web applications)
