Description Brian Thomason 2004-09-28 11:39:38 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.5)
Gecko/20040414 Debian/1.5-2.0.0.lindows0.0.67.45+0

Description of problem:
chkfontpath does not properly parse the font paths listed in
/etc/X11/fs/config if they are all listed on one line:

For instance:

catalogue = /usr/lib/X11/fonts/misc/,/usr/lib/X11/fonts/cyrillic/

However, if listed on individual lines, it parse them properly:

catalogue = /usr/lib/X11/fonts/misc/,


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install chkfontpath
2. Ensure all font paths in /etc/X11/fs/config are listed on one line
3. Run chkfontpath

Do you have a patch to fix this that you'd like me to apply to
future chkfontpath releases?

I ask because our tools always write out one path per line, so
this shouldn't ever be a huge problem per se.

Hi Mike,

It's funny you dug this back up now as I just ran into the problem again the
other day.  However, It appears to be fixed in 2.0.1 - Thanks!
