I used mkfontscale and also mkfontdir. fonts.dir and fonts.scale were created.
"xset fp+ /usr/share/fonts/truetype/ttf-barcod25" and "xset fp rehash"
gave no error and it seems that they have worked (I can see the font
with xlsfonts), but xpdf, for example, still doesn't display the
barcode font correctly on the PDF.
Do you know something else that I can try?
Thank you very much!
