[Scribus] Solaris, Scribus, Fonts, & Core Dumps
Mon Jun 28 21:52:07 CEST 2004
I'm looking at using Scribus (v1.1.7) as a replacement for FrameMaker
(the last commercial program I use). I tried compiling it for the first
time under Solaris 8 (on a sparc system). It core dumps when searching
for fonts (at least that's what the splash screen says when it goes).
From what I could find, it seems that something can cause it to crash
when looking for fonts, but I haven't been able to find anything to tell
me how to fix the problem (if indeed that's it). I'm running under CDE
(if that makes any kind of difference). I have Type 1 and TrueType
fonts in my X11 font path. Any help or pointers are appreciated in
advance. Thanks in advance.
