Description Andrey Falko 2005-11-02 22:25:39 UTC
Here is the section of xorg.conf:

        FontPath    "/usr/share/fonts/misc:unscaled"
        FontPath    "/usr/share/fonts/Type1"
        FontPath    "/usr/share/fonts/TTF"
        FontPath    "/usr/share/fonts/corefonts"
        FontPath    "/usr/share/fonts/freefont"
        FontPath    "/usr/share/fonts/sharefonts"
        FontPath    "/usr/share/fonts/terminus"
        FontPath    "/usr/share/fonts/ttf-bitstream-vera"
        FontPath    "/usr/share/fonts/unifont"
        FontPath    "/usr/share/fonts/75dpi:unscaled"
        FontPath    "/usr/share/fonts/100dpi:unscaled"
        FontPath    "/usr/share/fonts/artwiz"

If I take off the ":unscaled" off of the three fonts that have it, Xorg loads
fine. It refused to load unscaled ones.

If needed I can reproduce Xorg's log.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. unmerge old xorg-x11.
2. unmask and emerge modular xorg-x11 (7.0.0 rc1).
3. attempt to load fonts with the unscaled option.

Actual Results:  
Xorg does not load.

Expected Results:  
It should load as it did before.

Note also that I had a version of xorg monotithic cvs build from October 30
2005, and this bug did not arise then.

Give rc2 a try.  If this is still an issue, post a bug at https://bugs. and post the bug # here.

Also, make sure you're not missing anything required for the unscaled portion to 
work.  If the problem appeared in modular it's possible that there's some weird 
package you need to make this work.

Submitted bug to xorg devs after RC2 not being able to load unscaled fonts. Here

Comment 4 Andrey Falko 2005-11-14 13:34:42 UTC
They fixed it:
Comment 5 Donnie Berkholz (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-11-14 19:06:12 UTC
OK, but it's not fixed in Gentoo yet.
Comment 6 Donnie Berkholz (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-11-14 19:06:52 UTC
Changing to UPSTREAM, pending addition of this fix to Gentoo either via patch or
a new upstream release.
Comment 7 Joshua Baergen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-11-20 21:48:20 UTC
This was fixed upstream.
Comment 8 Joshua Baergen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-11-27 11:48:13 UTC
Ah, forgot about this bug.  Fix was just added to libXfont-0.99.2-r1.
