X fonts

Hey everyone,

I've got a question about X fonts that I know will likely have some simple solution but I can't find it anywhere on Google.

I'm just trying to run xclock remotely (over SSH). However, this doesn't work:

$ /usr/X11R6/bin/xclock -digital -update 1 -bg black -fg green -title tick:xclock -fn -*-helvetica-*-r-*-*-22-*-*-*-*-*-*-* -strftime "%a, %b %e, %Y %H:%M:%S %Z" -geometry 400x40
Warning: Cannot convert string "" to type XftFont
Segmentation fault (core dumped)

It does work if I add -norender to the command.

It seems X fonts are mystical magic. If they work you're lucky, if they don't you're lost.

The system is headless so only the core of X for the clients and some fonts are installed.
