Did that and Scribus crashed with a X11 signal. So I restarted Scribus. Now
the tab for Additional Font Paths is grayed out.
To recap, thus far I have added the /usr/share/fonts/ directory
to /etc/fonts/font.conf and run fc-cache. Rebooted but no effect.
Following another suggestion I added /usr/share/fonts/ to the list of font
locations in the xorg.conf file in /etc/X11. Rebooted but no effect.
Following your suggestion I tried a dynamic add via settings->fonts->
Additional font paths. I didn't get the fonts but I did lose that tab.
Friends and neighbors, this isn't, or shouldn't be rocket science. Let me ask:
how do I successfully add type 1 fonts to Scribus, given a Slackware system
and Scribus 1.2 build date 28 Aug 2004?
And BTW how and where do I fix the problem with the grayed out tab? Should I
delete the .scribus directory in my home directory and allow Scribus to
reconfigure itself? Do a full Scribus recompile and reinstall? Commit hari
