I didn't expect anyone to run it from anywhere other than the X
terminals in the Solarium where sbug had already installed the font.
Actually the whole X interface is a mess, and I've just realised I'll
have to fiddle with the code a tad for a couple of the new features, but
bear with me and you should be able to play it under X. (If not, give
up and stick to the good 'ol tty interface :)
To make the nh10 accessible to your X server running on an SLC, run the
following command (or throw it in your .xinitrc file):
% xset fp+ /student/ugrad/dlclark/lib/X11/fonts
If your SoCS account will last longer than mine, copy all the files into
a directory of your own and use it instead.
Next, go back to ftoomsh and check out ~dbugger/lib/X11. You should
find the following files:
* NetHack.ad The application defaults. The simplest thing is
to do is append it to your .Xresources file.
* nethack.rc The config file. The problem with this file is
that nethack must *NOT* find it if you want to
use the tty interface. If you like to use both
interfaces mail me, but for now just copy it to
your home directory as .nethackrc and edit to
* numpad.map, Keymap table modifiers to let you use the
sunpad.map number pad to play NetHack. Run "xmodmap
numpad.map" to activate the number pad and
"xmodmap sunmap.map" to restore the keys to
normal. Note that sunmap.map is terminal
dependant, so I don't know if it works on the
That should be it. Bet I've forgotten something somewhere tho.
