getting gs to see ttf fonts (was: Re: openoffice.org: fonts different on a printout (PDF print works))
If a document containing some Indic fonts is printed, those fonts come
out to be different on paper. English fonts are okay though. However,
if the document is saved first as a PDF file and then that PDF
printed, all fonts come out okay on the printout. This is on
Openoffice.org 2.3 on Debian Testing. Where do I start looking to
solve this one? The printer is question is Brother 2070n.
I looked in to this problem a bit more and it appears that the problem
is while printing the document to postscript. Looks like the ttf fonts
are not being printed in the output ps file. In place of those
characters I am getting rectangular boxes.
So, what is going on here?
Well, looks like the problem lies in making ghostscript see those ttf
fonts. I was hoping that putting the fonts in /usr/share/fonts/truetype
and running fc-cache -fv would make it happen ... well, something hasn't
worked since the output PS file still has boxes in place of those ttf fonts.
So, how do I go about making ghostscript see all my installed truetype
fonts in Debian Testing? Is the following webpage what I am supposed to
follow or is it outdated in these days auto-configuration of fonts in Linux?
