RE: Fonts in murgaLua (or FLTK)

Unless you have a truetype or opentype version of fixed, I don't know that it would work with the standard xft-enabled MurgaLua. Hopefully this is not the case, and I just have more learning and experimenting to do with fonts, but so far it seems that bitmap fonts (pcf, for example) dont work in the standard murgaLua binary. If you were to try the non-xft version, you'd probably find that fixed will work. I think it works with both X font aliases and the full or abbreviated X font name:
Fl:set_font(4,"-misc-fixed-medium-r-normal--13-120-75-75-c-70-iso8859-1")
Fl:set_font(4,"-misc-fixed-*--13-*")
Fl:set_font(4,"fixed") -- assuming there is a "fixed" alias, which there typically is

I've been going back and forth between the two murgaLua Linux binaries, and I still haven't decided which I prefer. The non-xft version does a good job of displaying most of the fonts I use most often (terminus, artwiz, proggy, lfp), but the default FLTK fonts are hideous. The defaults look fine with xft, but I don't get to use my favorite bitmap fonts. It's a pickle.
