hallo!
i'm trying to compile the svn 1017
everything seems ok but when i run the ide no chars are displayed but only
sqares ...
i've tryed to run some precompiled examples but many show this error:

"No fonts found; this probably means that the fontconfig
library is not correctly configured. You may need to
edit the fonts.conf configuration file. More information
about fontconfig can be found in the fontconfig(3) manual
page and on http://fontconfig.org"

this is the only app with this error and seems that the fontconfig
configuration files are correct.
my distro is frugalware 0.8.
what can i check?

thanks

the same under gentoo. Gambas (rev 1020) doesn´t find the installed Fonts.
If i rename or move /etc/fonts/fonts.conf, Gambas detects the Fonts.

Gambas with /etc/fonts/fonts.conf

Does it change anything if you run a Gambas project by typing 'gbx3 -p' in a
console inside the project directory?

Salut,

had my first go with the gambas2 (from svn 1061) today on gentoo.

after 'gambas2' on the prompt, I had that ( and see also the attached
png)

Fontconfig warning: no <cachedir> elements found. Check configuration.
Fontconfig warning: adding <cachedir>/var/cache/fontconfig</cachedir>
Fontconfig warning: adding <cachedir>~/.fontconfig</cachedir>

The messages tell that there is a fontconfig configuration problem. Do you
have the same message if you run another QT3 application?

Salut,

Salut Benoit,

hadn't much time yesterday, so I posted after quick tests my results.
Have you ideas about QT3 application which I can run to test that ?
I haven't planned, to work with gambas2 during the next few weeks, so if
you want to carry out tests, I can do this as long as my time permits.

I have an report from a user in Frugalware getting that when installing gambas2 from 'source' / 'svn'.

I myself cannot reproduce that , however you can try to run :

fc-cache -f -r -s -v as root.

Is it on a Gentoo system?

I don't think this problem is really Gambas' fault, as I do nothing special
about fonts.

Also I could not reproduce that problem at all, for me gambas2 works fine on the same Frugalware version.

frugalware daily updated.
till the 1.9.xxx series i haven't had any problem with gambas
i have qt3 and kde3.5 installed but i can't try qt4 for space problems
gambas is the only application with this problem on my system
all paths and sections into fonts.conf are correct
fc-cache reports around 500 fonts...
but on other systems with this distro (i've posted this problem on the
forums)
this problem doesn't exist...
i'm waiting for a package created by a programmer to be added to the repos
to see what happens.
thanks

s/programmer/developer/ :P , which is me :)

Anyway , I'm with Benoit , can't see how this can be caused by gambas itself.

my os becomes from the 0.4 version...
but the message reports that <cachedir> section is not found
if you have not this problem can you send me the font.conf and font.dtd

Since I upgraded to version 1056 many of my fonts have disappeared from the
choices gambas presents via the font property, which was not so in earlier
versions. I was left with bitstream and a few weird fonts.

Those same fonts are still in the KDE control panel.

However this morning on re-booting my computer after many hours work, they are
back again.

Strange.

Regards

Richard

Yes, for me is it on Gentoo System.

Salut,

at that time I tried your fc-cache, but that changed nothing.

Today I updated to build 1088 ( and also had some Distro-Updates since
08.02)
And all works fine now.
