I just installed a minimal Freebsd 6.0 (base + manpages only)
and then compiled tightvnc and xmbmon (WITHOUT_SMB=YES).

When starting xmbmon in a vnc-client, it refuses to work:

Can't find font: -adobe-helvetica-bold-r-*-*-10-*-*-*-*-*-*-*

The font actually does not exist on my system.

Fix: Patch for xmbmon.c :


#define DEFAULT_GEOMETRY  "100x140"
-#define DEFAULT_FONT      "-adobe-helvetica-bold-r-*-*-10-*-*-*-*-*-*-*"
+#define DEFAULT_FONT      "fixed"

-#define DEFAULT_LBFONT    "-adobe-helvetica-bold-r-*-*-12-*-*-*-*-*-*-*"
+#define DEFAULT_LBFONT    "fixed"
 #define DEFAULT_LBCOLOR   "black"

 #define DEFAULT_COUNT        "4"
