[Fontconfig] Problems finding fonts
Fri, 21 Feb 2003 08:53:01 +0100
I'm having a little trouble with Pango/Fontconfig on my Debian 3.0 box with Xfree86-4.2.1 and Gnome built from source. I'm running fontconfig-2.1 built using instructions found in the wiki.
I was on a mission to upgrade GTK and friends to the latest versions:
Everything seemed fine until I tried starting Gnome which failed with a message that it could not find font Verdana -10.
I have all of my TT-fonts installed in /opt/fonts and I did add a row to the fonts.conf file:
in the proper section of the file.
If I run "fc-list", it sure tells me I've got the Verdana font installed.
I also tried removing the /opt/fonts entry from fonts.conf and added a symlink, ~/.fonts -> /opt/fonts with the same poor result.
I figure the problem is fontconfig related since reverting to old GTK/GLIB/Pango work just fine. Also, un-setting the GDK_USE_XFT variable work, but then I won't get any TT fonts at all.
I obviously overlooked something, problem is I can't understand what.
