Xprint font nuisance

Friday, March 31st, 2006

Xprint has some font issues which causes letters to run together in a rather unreadable way, a bit like in ancient greek where they didn’t write the spaces between the words 🙂


The solution is to remove the copy of the PostScript fonts Xprint installs for itself

rm -fr /usr/share/Xprint/xserver/C/print/models/PSdefault/fonts*

and restart xprint

/etc/init.d/xprint restart

It still isn’t beautiful but its a lot more readable
