kernIV needs to load the Open Inventor files containing the DotsPlus3D font geometry. To do this, it uses the Open Inventor/Coin3D file parsing facility. To find the font files, the Open Inventor file parser will look in directories listed in the $DOTSOBJPATH environment variable. $DOTSOBJPATH should be set to a colon (:) separated list which includes the full path of the directory in which the DotsPlus3D Open Inventor font files have been installed.
