convert: Unable to read font (/usr/share/ghostscript/fonts/n019003l.pfb) [No
such file or directory].

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

Steps to Reproduce:

Additional info:

The file /usr/X11R6/share/ImageMagick/type-ghostscript.mgk specifies
an invalid path for the fonts.
Comment 1 Aleksey Nogin 2002-06-25 17:48:19 EDT
This problem still exists in Rawhide (ImageMagick-5.4.6-2). 

The type-ghostscript.mgk should be changed either to use fonts from
ghostscript-fonts or to use fonts from urw-fonts (or may be supply both
type-ghostscript.mgk and type-urw.mgk)?

This is a pretty nasty bug since it has a potential to break scripts that do not
specify fonts explicitly (when, say, using -draw "text ...").

P.S. A similar problem existed in /usr/X11R6/share/ImageMagick/fonts.mgk in 7.2,
but there it was not as harmful since X fonts were used by default.

tested with latest ImageMagick and 
and confirmed that it works now
