I have a very old X11 application (over 10 years) that runs in a chrooted environment on my OpenSuse desktop. It used to look fine and over the years I have updated the Linux distribution several times, always no problem.
Now after moving from OpenSuse 12.1 to 13.1, this old application only sees about 10 fonts and starts to look crappy. It sees Times, Helvetica, Courier, Bookman and a few more.
Are there different kinds of fonts that applications get to use ? Maybe the old app only supports one kind and maybe it was dropped / reduced on the latest Suse ?
What is the best way to to make sure this old application has some good fonts again ?
