I tried just copying font to this file and didnt work. Guess this is correct location?? I am trying to get xcheckers to run in puppy and get:

"xcheckers: Error, could not load font lucidasans-14"

Mepis has this font and running the xcheckers binary is trivial there. I just unzipped xcheckers directory to desktop, brought up terminal window, cd to xcheckers directory, ./xcheckers, and bing, bang, boom, I'm playing checkers.

Add a line to:
/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/misc/fonts.alias

You will see is already a line very similar at the bottom, that I think I added awhile ago. This creates an alias for an existing font.

Saw the line you referred to. Added simular line to fonts.alias file for lucidasans-14.

Here are existing lines plus one I added:

lucidasanstypewriter-12 -b&h-lucidatypewriter-medium-r-normal-sans-12-120-75-75-m-70-iso8859-1
lucidasans-10 -b&h-lucidatypewriter-medium-r-normal-sans-10-100-75-75-m-60-iso8859-1
lucidasans-14 -b&h-lucidatypewriter-medium-r-normal-sans-14-140-75-75-m-80-iso8859-1

Worked fine AFTER rebooting. Puppy apparently doesnt know about changes except upon rebooting.
