Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 8785
koi8 encoding broken - some metric *.afm files missing
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:54 EDT
Using a2ps-4.12 (part of 6.0 and 6.1 PowerTools):
when using koi8 encoding, the program
a2ps -X --encoding=koi8 foo
a2ps: cannot find file `CourierISOC.afm': No such file or directory
When downgraded to a2ps-4.10.4 (RH 5.2 PowerTools) everything is fine
Comparison with a2ps-4.10.4 shows that
the following afm files are absent in 4.12 distribution
There were also *pfb fonts distributed with 4.10.4 ?
Ughhh. The a2ps folks removed the i18n stuff from the 4.12 tarball. I created a
noarch package called a2ps-i18n, look for it in rawhide. It fixes the problem
(and generates a new fonts.map too).
Thanks for letting me know about this.
