Description tony.ransom 2001-05-02 12:23:28 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/4.77 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.2-2 i686) The ttmkfdir program, used to create the true type fonts.scale file, does not work. It simply states 'Aborted' when run. The fonts.scale file is not created. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. While superuser, cd to the directory where your tt fonts are stored. 2. Run ttmkfdir -o fonts.scale 3. Observe the program produces output of "Aborted" Actual Results: The program produces output of "Aborted" Expected Results: The file fonts.scale should be created. None

Works here... What TT fonts are you using?
Comment 2 tony.ransom 2001-05-03 02:29:59 UTC
I'm using Windows 98 fonts. Maybe there's a permission problem? I will check this tonight.
Comment 3 tony.ransom 2001-05-03 13:07:25 UTC
Checked and changed permissions on the .ttf files to '444'. No difference, still get 'Aborted' when I try to run ttmkfdir. Note that this worked in my previous RH installation. When I installed 7.1 I backed up the fonts then reinstalled after.
Comment 4 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2001-05-03 13:54:04 UTC
Assigning to freetype, which contains ttmkfdir. ttfonts is our collection of free TrueType fonts; ttmkfdir works perfectly with those.
Comment 5 Mike A. Harris 2001-05-11 04:35:34 UTC
I do not have any fonts with which to test this and reproduce the problem. Microsoft fonts are copyrighted, so I can't ask you to send them to me in a tar.gz'd file via email so that I can try to reproduce the situation as that would violate the Microsoft EULA licensing agreement I am sure. ;o)
Comment 6 Mike A. Harris 2001-06-12 21:09:38 UTC
The above comment by the way was a very lame attempt at a sense of humor. ;o) It appears nobody took it that way.. Oh well, it was lame. ;o) At any rate... I have just taken the fonts from a Windows 98SE installation, copied them into a dir /tmp/ttfonts, and then went in that dir and ran: ttmkfdir -o fonts.scale The program works exactly as expected.
