How can I get the type 1 fonts (without installing X11 which is the only
way I found by searching the net)?
I am using ntop which is throwing an error:
Error: fontconfig: Didn't find expected font family. Perhaps URW Type 1
fonts need installing? : Helvetica
Suggests: graphviz, gsfonts
It was in fact xfonts-75dpi or xfonts-100dpi that got some helvetica fonts
onto my system.
But I still have the error above.
When I installed xfonts-75dpi, it gave me the warning:
Setting up xfonts-75dpi (1.0.0-3) ...
warning: /usr/lib/X11/fonts/75dpi does not exist or is not a directory
Is it trying to say I need the whole xorg or it's not going to work?
This is a knows bug. in fontconfig, IIRC. I think that this can be
workedaround by 'touch /usr/lib/X11/fonts/75dpi'.
Thanks for the info. Still get the error about helvetica above, and the package
still complains on reinstall (as above).
I made 75dpi a directory, as it is on my machine which does have xorg.
Perhaps there's a reconfig I need to run to do with fontconfig? I'm going to
leave this til tomorrow.
