Solaris X Window System Developer's Guide

X Font Server

The Solaris X server can be a client of the X font server xfs. The X font server renders fonts for the X server. The Solaris X font server supports the same fonts as the standard X font server, plus TrueType fonts from Sun. It does not support Sun's proprietary F3 font format. Support for Type 1 fonts is provided via the Type 1 interpreter donated to the X Consortium.

xfs can be started manually or automatically. For more information on this command, see the xfs(1) man page.
