Description Dominik 'Rathann' Mierzejewski 2008-07-10 21:06:34 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #454936 +++

Description of problem:
eterm package seems to be missing some font dependencies, because after
installing it it won't start.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
eterm-0.9.4-8.fc8

How reproducible:
Always.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum install eterm
2. try running Eterm

Actual results:
$ Eterm 
Eterm:  Error:  Unable to load font
"-adobe-helvetica-medium-r-normal--10-100-75-75-p-56-iso8859-1".  Falling back
on "fixed"
Eterm:  Error:  Unable to load font
"-misc-fixed-medium-r-semicondensed--13-*-*-*-c-*-iso10646-1".  Falling back on
"k14"
Eterm:  FATAL:  Couldn't load the fallback font either.  Giving up.

Expected results:
It should work.

Just installed via yum install eterm on Fedora release 10 (Cambridge)

Missed this, reopened.

Comment 9 Terje Røsten 2009-02-26 20:30:23 UTC
OK, seems like xorg-x11-fonts-ISO8859-1-75dpi is needed.
Will roll a update soon.
