Description of problem:
After I upgrade fonts-ja to fonts-japanese, seeing Japanese dvi file
with pxdvi immediately exits with the exit number 101 and the message
"FT2: Open Font Error. (/usr/share/fonts/ja/TrueType/kochi-mincho-subst.ttf)"
This is because Japanese fonts were moved from /usr/share/fonts/ja/...
to /usr/share/fonts/japanese/... but the description in the file
/usr/share/texmf/pxdvi/vfontmap doesn't match this.

- Use /usr/share/fonts/japanese instead of /usr/share/fonts/ja
Please edit /usr/share/texmf/pxdvi/vfontmap .

Sorry. fonts-japanese is 0.20050222-3.
Could you please attach here some TeX source to produce Japanese dvi so that I
can test it after the fix?
