Inkscape and Linux fonts
27 April 2007 21:52
Finally I have managed to build the Inkscape program. The problem was that I had to rebuild my development machine and lost all the previous installation of Inkscape.
There were lots of dependencies that I found difficult to compile and install including a particular version of Cairo that would not even get past the #>./configure stage.
So finally, with everything built, I then had to try to remember what I did to install all my fonts.
Here is what I did:
- Copy the font ttf files into /usr/share/fonts/ttf
- chmod so the mask looks like -rwxr-xr-x
- Run the "fc-cache -fv" command
