Hi Craig,

sorry, doesn't work. even the access to FT_Get_Postscript_Name in the if 
statement leads to a crash. hmmmm... yesterday while doing some debug i one 
time was able to insert a printf which resultet in an '(null)' output for 
FT_Get_Postscript_Name(face). changing the line to 't->cached_RealName=ts;' 
seems to work, scribus starts. font is 'Bitstream Vera Sans' (first truetype 
font it tries to load)- but removing the fontpath showed scribus also crashes 
on type1 fonts... something wrong with my setup, or an error in scribus?
