The X-Server on HP can not use type.1 fonts directly you must start the
 fontserver and configure the fontdir correct:

First configure a new fontdir (for example /opt/fonts/type1.st)
(the .st at the end of the name is absolute importend you can not use
 any other name)

a few files must created by you:
/opt/fonts/type1.st/products/mathematica
 (it's a copy of  fonts.dir from Mathematica 3.0)

Then you must register your fonts (stlicense is in /sbin/root ):
stlicense -fp /opt/fonts/type1.st -pr mathematica +STSYSTEM:DISPLAYS

(This will create the licence dir and stuff)


Now you must add the /opt/fonts/type1.st into the the
fontserverconfiguration file :/etc/X11/fs/config

To start the fontserver:
edit /etc/rc.config.d/xfs :
RUN_X_FONT_SERVER=1

then execute

/sbin/init.d/xfs start

Now you must restart the X server on your HP (Shift-CTRL-Reset).



The HP X-server  automaticly use the fontserver as default after
the restart.

You can check this with xset -q the first entary in the fontpath shoud
now a tcp entry.

To use the fontserver on your PC you must add (at the pc)
xset +fp tcp/hostnameoftheHP:7000

(7000 is correct! Its a HP R6 fontserver all other Ppattforms does use
7100 on X11R6)


I hope this solves your Problems.
For me it works fine.
