View Full Version : no text in flash! :eek:
4th March 2006, 02:48 AM
Anyone else notice, for example, how on http://www.miniclip.com/motherload.htm there's no text on anything? It's like that for all my Flash animations in Firefox, FC5T3

Nobody has the same problem in fc5t3?
ive installed all the font packages and still nothing...

Same problem here but no solution yet. I´ve read thet the msttcorefonts have to be installed. I did - but with no success.

I thought I was the only one having that problem. I have noticed that since I switch to FC5, since test1.

I enforced a reinstallation of the msttcorefonts - still no text.
6th March 2006, 03:09 PM
hmmm..... I've filed a bug report...
6th March 2006, 03:20 PM
Right. Lets wait and see..

That's the bug address. if you could add your experience, I think it will encourage the developers to fix the issue. One person having a problem is different from 10.

Hi there, which text are you refering to? is it the New Game, Load Game, Instruction?
Me too. i dont see those text but aside from that everything is fine.

No I mean any regular text -- Imaging the flash is a webpage. You want a cool font, so you type it in GIMP and save it as PNG and then <img src=""> it into your web. Anything like this will work, but and <p> won't. images continaing text will work. But not and sort of text labels...
Because those links "instructions, load game, new game" are all regular text labels and not PNG (or whatever the designer used for this game) images....
I hope I explained that well... It's a little confusing...

Hmm.... It's odd -- I hope they fix it in FC5 final. The bug report still hasn't changed one bit.

I found a fix for this.
Edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf. Replace the line:
# FontPath "unix/:7100"
You may want to check if that includes all font paths in your system. Do so with:
(could someone please post this at the redhat bug report? I don't have an account there.)

AH! So THAT's why xfs font server is supposedly buggy and obsolete!
(with that in your config, you should be able to remove the "xfs" service and save boottime:
service xfs stop
chkconfig xfs off)

Great! Now it works! Thanks thebluesgnr!
Now I can visit my favorite flash sites. c",?

Here is a smarter solution by Thacker
Create this link:
ln -s /etc/X11/fs/config /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fs/config
26th March 2006, 03:43 PM
Well, define smarter... True, it's better if you're using xfs but xfs is long depecrated, and removing it is by using those lines... So IMHO it's better to use the lines in /etc/X11/xorg.conf... Plus, disabling xfs gives a better boottime :D

Here is the temporary solution from macromedia.mplug.org (http://macromedia.mplug.org/faq.html#font).

This might be what I have been looking for. Will give it a bash.
