Request Arguments

conn
The XCB connection to X11.
fid
The ID with which you will refer to the font, created by xcb_generate_id.
name_len
Length (in bytes) of name.
name

Description

Opens any X core font matching the given name (for example "-misc-fixed-*").

Note that X core fonts are deprecated (but still supported) in favor of client-side rendering using Xft.

Return Value

If you want to handle errors directly with xcb_request_check instead, use xcb_open_font_checked. See xcb-requests(3) for details.
