Description Jason Bacon 2004-04-14 16:50:20 UTC
	When installing urwfonts-1.0 from the ports, it displays a helpful
	message directing the installer to update FontPath in XF86Config.  
	The message does not appear when installing from the package.  
	This causes problems with OpenOffice-1.1, and likely many other 
	apps, since the fonts are there but the X server isn't aware of 
	them.  I'd suggest putting this message in all fonts ports and 
	packages for the sake of non-FreeBSD-gurus who wouldn't be 
	aware of the need to edit their XF86Config to activate new fonts.



		Section "Files"

		FontPath /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/URW

	to XF86Config, and restart the X server.  
	( Log out and type Ctrl+Alt+Backspace )

	While you're there, you might want to look for any other fonts
	directories that are missing from the FontPath.  Note that some
	may not be under /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts.
How-To-Repeat: 	pkg_add -r urwfonts
	Run openoffice-1.1
	Try typing something in Times 96pt font
