Hi Bernhard,

This almost did it here, X window comes up, except it now says,

xset:  bad font path element (#0), possible causes are:
    Directory does not exist or has wrong permissions
    Directory missing fonts.dir
    Incorrect font server address or syntax

Cannot find Oberon fonts. Is the environment variable OBERON correctly

echo $OBERON says here


I run this modified script


export OBERON=="./:`find . -type d | tr "\12" :`"
echo $OBERON
xset +fp $PWD/Fonts

I renamed `xfonts' to `Fonts', and changed this line in  
`linux.oberon.c' and recompiled

char defaultpath[] = ".:/usr/local/Oberon:/usr/local/Oberon/Fonts";
char defaultshlpath[] = "/lib /usr/lib /usr/lib/X11 /usr/lib/xorg";
