I do not know where this font came from; it was in the openSuSE distribution many moons ago in some package but I do not know which. I selected this font a long time back. I tried running with -q and then Optipns->Set Default Font but the interface defeated me. The only font family that a recognised was Adobe Courier which looks way to spidery to use.

Looking around at what has changed I saw that --with-cairo was the default, so I built with --without-cairo and that works as before. Sorry not to be able to answer the quetsions; visual stuff is not by forte and I am largely ignorant of what cairo is.

Is thete a way of finding out wat fonr I am actually using?

today I pulled source and built emacs from master.  But it failed to
run properly as it obeyed the first line on my init sequence which is
(set-frame-font "-ETL-ETL 

Message is
Warning (initialization): An error occurred while loading ‘/home/jpff/.emacs’:

error: Font not available, #<font-spec nil ETL ETL Fixed nil iso10646-1 normal 
normal normal 16 72 110 80 ((:name . -ETL-ETL 
Fixed-normal-normal-normal-*-16-*-72-72-c-80-iso10646-1) (:user-spec . -ETL-ETL 

What kind of font is that, i.e. where can one find it and download it?

Also, if you start Emacs without that line, can you then select that
font via the Options->Select Default Font menu?
