> Hi Greg, Since it happened to all versions of Scribus, it probably has to do with Fedora. Maybe an update changed a library or moved files around. You can use 'rpm -qa -last | head' and 'dnf history list | head' to see the most recently installed packages and I think 'dnf history rollback #' to remove all of the updates from history ids greater than #. Regards, William

well, it's probably freetype (iirc) that has a bug and does not 
(correctly (for scribus)) recognize dejavu

iirc, i had a chat about it with jean (because i don't have it either) 
and he told me that it has been fixed in the latest version of some 
library (as said, iirc, freetype).

i had a big packages update coming in last week and i should test if 
dejavu is still missing...
