Why isn't the font embedded?  Not clear this is a foomatic bug at all.
Comment 2 Dan Devine 2004-04-09 01:46:29 EDT
I'm not sure that it is foomatic, but the most clear indication of the
problem is through the ghostscript/foomatic logs and non-ability to
print items with the symbol font.

relevant log file attached to bug#109628, showing where
foomatic/ghostscript crashes.

I've changed the permissions for the font directories as described in
bug#110956.  All directories are executable.

I've also made sure that the Symbol font exists, and is within the
ghostscript search path.

Looks like you copied Symbol from one directory to another -- we want
to make sure that you don't have to do that, obviously.

I'm closing this as a duplicate of bug #109628, since that's where all
the useful information about the problem is.
