X Server 1.19.6-2 , xset does not add ghostscript fonts for xfig




Dear Cygwin X,

I am running X Server 1.19.6-2 built 2018-03-12

I have the following error:

$ xset fp+ /usr/share/ghostscript/fonts/
xset:  bad font path element (#2), possible causes are:
    Directory does not exist or has wrong permissions
    Directory missing fonts.dir
    Incorrect font server address or syntax

The font directory does exist:

app@MU00108269 /usr/share/ghostscript
$ ls -l
total 12
drwxr-xr-x+ 1 app Domain Users 0 Mar 9 10:02 9.22
drwxr-xr-x+ 1 app Domain Users 0 Mar 9 10:02 fonts

Also

$ xset q
 Font Path:
  catalogue:/etc/X11/fontpath.d,built-ins

Without  ghostscript fonts  xfig  does not get the proper fonts.
Please help

Andrew
