How to configure reports in linux to use particular fonts [message #419004] Wed, 19 August 2009 09:51

Hi, I made some reports in windows and I used font type Arial and Arial Narrow, but I need those reports to be shown the same way in a linux server, but they don't and the difference is huge, so I read information about that issue and I changed two parts of the file uifont.ali like this:

# Mapping from MS Windows
Arial = courier
"Arial Narrow" = helvetica
"Courier New" = courier
"Times New Roman" = times
Modern = helvetica
"MS Sans Serif" = helvetica
"MS Serif" = times
"Small Fonts" = helvetica

[ PDF:Subset ]
helvetica...Bold.. = "arialnb.ttf"
helvetica..... = "arialn.ttf"
courier...Bold.. = "arialbd.ttf"
courier..... = "arial.ttf"

The ttf files were also copied to the linux server, but it didn't work.
Is there something wrong with the file I changed, or is there something else I have to do?
Please, I really need help.
