Description Akira TAGOH 2007-03-26 12:19:25 UTC
Description of problem:
Sorry for getting back this idea again, but adding the another configuration
files to Fontmap, FAPIfontmap, FAPIcidfmap, cidfmap and CIDFnmap to read is
required for silly packaging issue. where is put onto the directory that isn't
allowed to modify in general, such as /usr/share.

Will attach the proposed patch then.

Comment 1 Akira TAGOH 2007-03-26 12:36:08 UTC
I mean /etc/ghostscript would be used as the place put the user configuration
and create new place to put the files which the packages, such as
fonts-{japanese,korean,chinese} has.

proposed patch for ghostscript.spec

The reason to put the user configuration files under the versioned directory is
to prevent the breakage for incompatible changes in the configuration since it
may be hard to solve such files but we could fix the configuration files from
the font packages with rebuilding them. and still adding /etc/ghostscript to
the font path is to keep the compatibility. %{_datadir}/%{name}/conf.d would be
used to put the files for the font packages.

Comment 3 Tim Waugh 2007-04-03 13:33:13 UTC
This hunk did not apply cleanly:

@ -110,7 +110,9 @@
 	%{_datadir}/fonts/default/amspsfnt/pfb \
 	%{_datadir}/fonts/default/cmpsfont/pfb \
 	%{_datadir}/fonts/japanese \
-	%{_sysconfdir}/%{name}
+	%{_datadir}/%{name}/conf.d \
+	%{_sysconfdir}/%{name} \
+	%{_sysconfdir}/%{name}/%{gs_dot_ver}

..because %{_datadir}/fonts/japanese is not in that list in CVS.  Is that part
of a different change?

Comment 4 Tim Waugh 2007-04-03 13:37:11 UTC
Oh, never mind, I was looking at a CVS file with a sticky tag..

Comment 5 Akira TAGOH 2007-04-10 12:44:08 UTC
Sorry for reopening. but need to append the kind of (cidfmap.local)
.runlibfileifexists in cidfmap say. and as well as in CIDFnmap, FAPIfontmap and

Comment 6 Tim Waugh 2007-04-10 13:31:49 UTC
Could you provide a patch please?  I'm not sure I understand enough about it to
get it right..
