Unhappy Adding Fonts? (X11 version)

I'm trying to find a way to add a font to the Linux/X11 version of Angband. I'm reasonably sure I've got the font in the right format (.FON, converted through various trials and tribulations from a Macintosh .dfont, and verified to work in Windows), but it consistently gives me a "Couldn't load the requested font." when I set the appropriate line in my x11-settings.prf.

As additional information (which those here might already know ), when I renamed one of the fonts already in the /usr/local/share/angband/xtra/font directory to the name of the font I'm trying to add, it still gave an error. Also, when I renamed the font I'm trying to add to one of the existing fonts, it loaded fineŚwith the existing font, not with mine.

So it seems very much as if Angband is pulling its fonts from somewhere other than the /xtra/font directory. But where? And how do I get it to recognize a new font in .FON format?

Thanks for any help you can give,

Timothy Collett
