Removing Fonts (sdtfontrm)

This utility removes the fonts you specify from a directory.

sdtfontrm Command Syntax

/usr/dt/bin/sdtfontrm [-e dir][-v][-f][font_name ...] fromdir


-e dir

If the user is the root user, the font path for the OpenWindows installation in this directory will be updated as necessary. That is, if fromdir becomes empty as a result of removing fonts, sdtfontrm removes it from the font path. If this option is not specified, the default is /usr/openwin.


Runs sdtfontrm in verbose mode, displaying a message to standard output (usually the monitor) as each font is removed.


Runs sdtfontrm with no user interaction. Conflict situations may arise if there are read-only or system fonts on the list of fonts to remove. When the -f option is used, system fonts will be deleted, but read-only fonts will not be deleted.

font_name ...

Represents a list of fonts to remove.

Note - Type quotes around font names to make sure that they are interpreted correctly.

If no font is specified on the command line, sdtfontrm expects to receive font names from standard input (usually the keyboard).


Specifies the directory from which sdtfontrm will remove fonts.
