I wish I had wish

Thanks. I installed bsvc from github, compiled and installed it. When I then ran


I got exec: wish not found

Now I found that bsvc is part of the ports collection. So I did a pkg install bsvc which automatically install tcl/tk (8.6 I believe).

So far so good. wish isn’t there.

Now when I start bsvc (via ssh -Y myfreebsdbox) I’m getting

$ bsvc
X Error of failed request:  BadName (named color or font does not exist)
  Major opcode of failed request:  45 (X_OpenFont)
  Serial number of failed request:  42
  Current serial number in output stream:  59

But this message must be caused by my macOS server from which I’m logged in into myfreebsdbox.
