The ANSYS Process Status window that pops up when running the solver displays Korean font characters instead of English. The rest of the utilities menus are in English lettering.

The user is running ANSYS 8.1 on RedHat Linux 8.0.

Why is this happening and how can I change to the English font?

The user is getting the Korean font because it is the first font in the /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fs/config file. Xwindows defaults to the top line of the config file section labeled: catalogue = ...etc.

There are a number of fonts in the catalogue. To solve the Korean font issue, change the default to an English font by simply reordering the lines so that the top line is not the Korean font (or remove the Korean font line altogether).

Once the change is made, restart the XFS daemon (X Font Server), and restart Xwindows to allow the changes to take effect (there shouldn't be a need to reboot the machine).
