Ghostscript and True Type Fonts
« on: June 06, 2022, 01:04:17 pm »
I have got two ArcaOS installations. On one installation, Ghostscript properly compiles True Type Fonts (*.TTF), on the other an ugly bitmap substitute occurs. I did not recognize the difference between the two installations. Any ideas where there is a setting to say to Ghostscript how to prpoperly compile TTF fonts?

Meanwhile, I restored an old ArcaOS 5.0.6, state of the updates perhaps one year ago. All works fine. After running "update all", the bug occurs again. It seems to be a bug in a Ghostscript update.

Ghostscript 9.18-6 seems to be OK, the current -7 is defective. But all newer updates enlarge the filesize by factor 2.
