Comment 1 Jaroslav Škarvada 2014-12-08 14:34:04 UTC
It builds OK with urw-fonts 2.4-19.

Comment 2 Jaroslav Škarvada 2014-12-08 14:43:15 UTC
Sendmail buildroot for Fedora 21:
$ fc-match -s 'Times-Italic'
n021003l.pfb: "Nimbus Roman No9 L" "Regular"
wasy10.ttf: "wasy10" "Normal"
cmmi10.ttf: "cmmi10" "Regular"
d050000l.pfb: "Dingbats" "Regular"
s050000l.pfb: "Standard Symbols L" "Regular"
rsfs10.ttf: "rsfs10" "Roman"

Sendmail buildroot for Fedora 22:
$ fc-match -s Times-Italic
wasy10.ttf: "wasy10" "Normal"
esint10.ttf: "esint10" "regular"
stmary10.ttf: "stmary10" "Roman"
cmex10.ttf: "cmex10" "Regular"
cmmi10.ttf: "cmmi10" "Regular"
b018012l.pfb: "Bookman URW" "Light"
d050000l.pfb: "Dingbats" "Regular"
s050000l.pfb: "Standard Symbols L" "Regular"
rsfs10.ttf: "rsfs10" "Roman"

Comment 3 Jaroslav Škarvada 2015-01-15 13:20:25 UTC
The problem is caused by different font names. Sendmail documentation requires:


These are provided by the following AFM files:
n019023l.afm - Times-Italic
n021003l.afm - Times-Roman
n021004l.afm - Times-Bold

E.g. in the n019023l.afm there previously was:
FontName NimbusSanL-ReguItal
FullName Nimbus Sans L Regular Italic
FamilyName Nimbus Sans L

Currently there is the following:
FontName NimbusSan-Ita
FullName Nimbus Sans Italic
FamilyName Nimbus Sans

It seems that the URW prefixes/suffixes are missing (e.g. L for laser).
That's why ghostscript cannot find the fonts.

Comment 4 Jaroslav Škarvada 2015-01-15 13:29:55 UTC
It seems you moved from urw-fonts to urw-core35-fonts. AFAIK urw-core35-fonts was "upstream" for urw fonts, i.e. what was provided by URW++ and urw-fonts contained modifications needed by ghostscript. Does it change? IIRC there was discussion about patching ghostscript to work with the urw-core35-fonts directly, but I don't know how far it went. CCing ghostscript maintainer.

there's new urw-font built in rawhide. it fixes the build failure in sendmail.
