xlsfonts - server font list displayer for X


xlsfonts [-display host:dpy] [-l] [-ll] [-lll] [-m] [-C] [-1] [-w width] [-n columns] [-u] [-o] [-fn pattern]
xlsfonts -printer printername [-l] [-ll] [-lll] [-m] [-C] [-1] [-w width] [-n columns] [-u] [-o] [-r resolution] [-b] [-B] [-g] [-G] [-x mode] [-X mode] [-fn pattern]


xlsfonts lists the fonts that match the given pattern. The wildcard character "*" may be used to match any sequence of characters (including none), and "?" to match any single character. If no pattern is given, "*" is assumed.

The "*" and "?" characters must be quoted to prevent them from being expanded by the shell.


-display host:dpy
This option specifies the X server to contact.
-printer printername
This option specifies the Xprint printer to contact.
-d host:dpy
Same as -display host:dpy.
-p printername
Same as -printer printername.
Lists some attributes of the font on one line in addition to its name.
Lists font properties in addition to -l output.
Lists character metrics in addition to -ll output.
This option indicates that long listings should also print the minimum and maximum bounds of each font.
This option indicates that listings should use multiple columns. This is the same as -n 0.
This option indicates that listings should use a single column. This is the same as -n 1.
-w width
This option specifies the width in characters that should be used in figuring out how many columns to print. The default is 79.
-n columns
This option specifies the number of columns to use in displaying the output. By default, it will attempt to fit as many columns of font names into the number of character specified by -w width.
This option indicates that the output should be left unsorted.
This option indicates that xlsfonts should do an OpenFont (and QueryFont, if appropriate) rather than a ListFonts. This is useful if ListFonts or ListFontsWithInfo fail to list a known font (as is the case with some scaled font systems).
-r resolutionname
Set print resolution name (usually values like 300dpi or 300x600, see output of xplsprinters). This may alter the output of xlsfonts if there are printer fonts which get enabled/disabled on per-resolution basis by the DDX.

(printer mode only)

List printer builtin fonts. This is the same as -x xp-list-internal-printer-fonts.

(printer mode only)

Do not list printer builtin fonts. This is the same as -X xp-list-internal-printer-fonts.

(printer mode only)

List glyph fonts. This is the same as -x xp-list-glyph-fonts.

(printer mode only)

Do not list glyph fonts. This is the same as -X xp-list-glyph-fonts.

(printer mode only)

-x mode
Enable listfont mode mode.

Supported modes are:

If xp-listinternal-printer-fonts was set (via option -b or -x xp-listinternal-printer-fonts xlsfonts will include all of the fonts defined as internal printer fonts.
If xp-list-glyph-fonts was set (via option -g or -x xp-list-glyph-fonts) xlsfonts will include all of the fonts available to the server which have glyphs associated with them.

The default value is implicitly determined by the ddx driver to be the all of the listfonts modes specified in the xp-listfonts-modes-supported printer attribute.

The value of xp-listfonts-modes-supported and xp-listfonts-modes (the defaults) can be looked-up via xplsprinters(1).

(printer mode only)

-X mode
Disable listfont mode mode. See option -x for a list of valid mode values.

(printer mode only)

-fn pattern
This option specifies the font name pattern to match.

DISPLAY must be set to get the default host and display to use.
XPSERVERLIST must be set for the -printer option identifying the available Xprint servers. See Xprint(7) for more details.


Doing ``xlsfonts -l'' can tie up your server for a very long time. This is really a bug with single-threaded non-preemptable servers, not with this program.
