my problem is to register fonts for fop on linux. i get following error message: [ERROR] unknown font xxxx, so defaulted font to any

i exactly followed the font registering mechanism on the fop site ( i wonder why it doesnt work! becase on windows it works great!

Hello David,

Registering FOP fonts and using them to generate documents with FOP works on Windows AND Linux. Are you sure you set the FOP configuration file in <oXygen/> as it is described in ... ssors.html ? When you set everything correctly FOP still gives the error message about the unknown font so you can ignore it. Make sure you follow all the steps in the article ... tToFOP.pdf. It worked for me. If it doesn't work for you tell us what font you are trying to register, what error messages you see, post your FOP configuration file.

Hope that helps,
