Re: [gembud] gempak font problem on RHEL 6

Hi Chris,

In addition to the xorg-x11-fonts-75dpi package, you will also need to install these two:

xorg-x11-fonts-ISO8859-1-75dpi
xorg-x11-fonts-misc

Let us know if this fixes the problem . . .

Cheers,

Kevin

Gembuds,
I'm trying to run Gempak 6.2 applications on RHEL 6. When I run nmap2, the application immediately exits with this error:

A search of the support archives yielded a couple of suggestions, mainly installing the missing fonts. We tried to install xorg-x11-fonts-75dpi and msttcorefonts-2.0-1.spec but the problem persists. There are other similar warning messages when running Adobe products too. Has anyone successfully run Gempak on RHEL 6? Does anyone have any ideas on how to resolve this? Thanks.

Chris
