Gnome-AbiWord Font and Printing Problem
Posted on 2003-11-02
When I open AbiWord in Gnome the following error message is displayed:
AbiWord was not able to add it's fonts to the X font path. This does not mean there is anything wrong with your system, but you will need to modify your font path manually. Please see the "Unix Font Path Problem" in the FAQ section of the AbiWord help file for more detailed information, including instructions on how to turn this warning off.
When I then click on OK AbiWord opens. I can use it and save files, but when I try to print the text file using lpr with Apsfilter, either from File/Print... or from the command line: lpr <file> all I get is garbage that looks like the printcap. By contrast I have no problem printing files created using the KDE text editor.
I couldn't find "Unix Font Path Problem". Could somebody walk me through the solution to this problem. If it turns out to be more complicated than I think it probably is I'll increase the points from 250 to 500.
