    Thanks this helped. But putting the line in the ~/.xinitrc
    resulted in that i was not able to login my useraccount anymore (at least i could not login kde). After typing in my password, it loads i while and then puts me back to the login screen.
    I had to login as root an remove that file (there were not such file before so i had to create it to put the line in), after that i could log in my user account again.

    As always the primary source is the most exact (https://bugzilla.novell.com/558915)
    ~/.xinitrc would be the right place (use ~/.xinitrc.template as a template).
    I have not tried. But probably the easy, correct, system-wide way is to create an script inside /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.d the same way "xdg-user-dirs.sh", that is already there from the xdg-user-dirs package.

    I just tried ... and am satisfied with the results so far.

    I created a new-script.sh file in /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.d like this:

    Code:
    #!/bin/sh
    xset fp+ /usr/share/fonts/BDF/
    xset fp rehash
    This got me happily running a remote session of Mathematica. I had already copied the BDF fonts from the server where Mathematica was installed into /usr/share/fonts/BDF on my desktop and run mkfontdir. Hope that helps another noob.
