Description of problem:
When I scaled my xfig graph under our new Linux Enterprise sytem, I found the Greek fonts didn't scale exactly as the boxes enclosing them.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a figure in xFig containg Greek characters
2. Enclose them in boxes
3. Scale the figure
Actual Results: The fonts scale differently than the boxea
Expected Results: They should scale at the same rate.
The author of xfig pointed out that it was caused by lacking of scalable fonts, and suggested me to install Ghostscript fonts. After did so and added font path by "xset +fp my_gs_fonts_dir", the scaling problem went away, but new problem came -- the Greek characters were shifted by 97-65=32 (A becomes a) on the display ( using X server).
Which fonts did you install?
