Some installed fonts don't show up in Cin-GG?
On a few projects I've noticed that fonts that are available on my system for GIMP and LibreOffice aren't showing up in Cin-GG, unfortunately they're some of my most used fonts for graphics and title work. Are there certain constraints for fonts that get accessed by Cin? I have rebuilt the font cache on my system a few times before posting this question so I know the fonts are visible to other apps in the system.
I've attached a menu screenie from Cin, and one from GIMP's menu in the comment below
We had specifically tested punkrockshow.zip yesterday before replying but apparently that is different than CF PunkRockShow.
THIS HAS BEEN EDITED as I was wrong and hopefully you made the same mistake! They both work, it is just the name that you might be looking for is wrong.
For example: chant... is really "channel tuning (misc)" and CF Punk.. is really "punkrockshow (misc).
Maybe the fonts.scale file is bad. When I unzipped the file you sent, I ran mkfontscale where /tmp/fonts contained the chant... and CF Pun... so: cd /tmp and mkfontscale/fonts
The contents of the /tmp/fonts/fonts.scale was:
CF PunkRockShow.ttf -misc-punkrockshow-medium-r-normal--0-0-0-0-p-0-iso10646-1
chant___.ttf -misc-channel tuning-medium-r-normal--0-0-0-0-p-0-iso10646-1
Does the fonts.scale file which contains Punk and chant have similar lines? We will test on Debian to see if a difference (but probably not until tomorrow)
Although not on Debian, GG already ran the 2 in the debugger and they showed up as he executed the code line by line. Possibly something else is preventing them from being displayed. We have not had the time to test on Debian yet though because that computer is in high use right now. Maybe you should send the handful then at least I can see if there is any obvious commonality and test on my laptop. (P.S. we had a lot of fun playing with Punk Rock and added the Rumbler plugin it to it!)
Check permissions on the fonts.scale file to make sure it is 644 so that it is readable by an ordinary user.
Just tested on Debian 10 using the static tarball from January 31 and in the bash shell. Everything we try works - both chant and punk rock with export BC_FONT_PATH...
We are clueless. If you start Cinelerra from a terminal window, you can also:
export BC_FONT_DEBUG=1 and it will print out on the terminal window each font as it scans it to see if one of them is troublesome.
