    Summary:
    Ubuntu - xset +fp prevents acedb programs from running
    Original submission:
    The xset command appears to be buggy in Ubuntu. $BIRCH/script/birchace.py contains the line:

    subprocess.call(['xset', '+fp', ACEFONTS], env=ACEENV)

    which adds a directory to the font path. This works on all other Linux, OSX and Solaris platforms, but not on Ubuntu.
    On Ubuntu, we get the message:

    xset: bad font path element (#1), possible causes are:

    Further experimentation with this line appears to show that none of the prescribed fp options (eg. +fp=, fp+=, fp=)
    seems to work, even when typed at the command line. It seems likely that this is a bug in the xset command in Ubuntu.

    Consequently, no of the xace programs can run.
