[Scribus] Newbie question -- fonts in Mac OS X
Sat Apr 3 19:09:49 CEST 2004
Hi all...I'm a Mac OS X (Panther version) user who just installed
Fink and Scribus for the first time. It all went reasonably well, and
from my initial poking around, Scribus looks like a great program.
I've worked extensively in Quark, but this looks like a viable
alternative. (I'd like to see an Aqua interface instead of X11, but I
can live with that.)
I'm having one problem, though: I can't get Scribus to recognize my
existing collection of Type1 and TrueType fonts. The only fonts
currently available are Bitstream Charter, Courier, Luxi and Utopia.
I have dozens of other fonts on my computer.
I tried following the instructions which said to go to
Edit->Preferences->Fonts and add "Additional Paths," but none of the
fonts in the paths I added are showing up. I've tried it with a
folder that contains Type1 fonts, and a folder that contains
TrueType. The name of the TrueType font file is "Bickley Script LET
Fonts." The Type1 font that I tried was "Arnold Boecklin," and the
files in that font folder are named "ArnolBoe" (for the print font)
and "Arnold Boecklin" (for the screen font).
I don't have any .afm files for my fonts. Could that be my problem?
Thanks for any advice!
