My X server (XFree86 3.1.2, under Linux) unfortunately crashes when
I attempt to display any expert Type 1 font. Apparently rasterizing any font
that uses the expert encoding triggers a bug in the server. I have no
difficulty installing and using any other sort of Type 1 font.
This is not good! Has anyone else seen this, or know of a workaround?
Is the problem restricted to XFree86?
In case you're wondering, I've installed the expert fonts correctly. The
following are two sample entries from my fonts.scale file:
AGaramondExp-Regular.pfb -adobe-garamond expert-medium-r-normal--0-0-0-0-p-0-adobe-fontspecific
BodoniBE-RegularExp.pfb -berthold-bodoni expert-medium-r-normal--0-0-0-0-p-0-adobe-fontspecific
Doing an `xlsfont' on Adobe Garamond Expert or Berthold Bodoni Expert is
guaranteed to trigger a crash. It's the same with several other expert
fonts I've tried.
Comments or advice, anyone?
