Paul, here is that email. The file name should be in the attached txt file. He is using Slackware (I forget which version).

At the top of that function in afm.py, before the while loop, add the
following line:

print “FILENAME:”, fh.name

And let me know what it returns. From there, I can have a more solid basis
for filing an official bug report.


The attached is a brief sample of the output. There seems to be an issue
with many of the .afm files; not all, but many.

For a reason never explained to me, when I switched from OpenOffice.org to
LibreOffice I had to make soft links from /usr/share/fonts to ~/.fonts. LO
just did not see /usr/share/fonts. Shrug.

Let me know if you want the entire output, errors and non-errors.
