elpoint - anybody?


I wanted to try out elpoint, as it's description sounds promising. (I
especially would like the possibility to make presentations out of
outlines). But I'm not able to get it to work under woody. Does
anybody use it with success and Latin characters? If so, could you
pass the recipe to me, how to make it work?

My problems: If I put simply (require 'ept-setup) into my init.el I
get the error message:

Error in init file: error "No fonts match `-kochi-gothic-medium-r-normal-*-100-*-*-*-*-*-iso8859-1'"

First I noted that the package ttf-kochi-gothic (required by elpoint)
didn't install the font successfully. It only put the font into a new
directory /usr/share/fonts/truetype/kochi/ but didn't create and
fonts.dir or fonts.scale files. xlsfonts didn't show the font. During
the install process I got:

Richte ttf-kochi-gothic ein (0.2.20020326-1) ...
/usr/bin/defoma-font -vt reregister-all /etc/defoma/hints/ttf-kochi-gothic.hints
Registering /usr/share/fonts/truetype/kochi/kochi-gothic.ttf..
/usr/share/fonts/truetype/kochi/kochi-gothic.ttf: failed to register for package abiword-common, status(3).

I then installed the font using the KDE font installer. The font was
now available, but under the wrong full name. xlsfonts showed it as
for instance:

 -Misc-Kochi Gothic-Medium-r-Normal--0-0-0-0-p-0-iso8859-1

But the error message continued.

So I installed it by hand using the provided fonts.dir and fonts.scale
examples from ttf-kochi-gothic.

Now xlsfonts looks better, for instance:


But the error message continues :-(

I also tried it with

(setq ept-use-kochi nil)
(require 'ept-setup)

There's no error in the startup, but if I try to use elpoint I get:

Invalid font or fontset name: "fontset-gothic54".

Any suggestions?
