    Hi, abi users and developers,

    I am not happy again. This time fonts do not want to PRINT ON A PAPER
    But first, to remember what was said a while before:

    It seems to be true.

    After having iso8859-2 fonts (ttf or type1) inside an abiword's combo box
    and please my eyes by theirs beautiful shapes, I could not find a way to
    print them on the paper. Instead I got only circles and crosses. I was
    experimentig with fonts.scale, fonts.dir, fonts.alias etc. without

    I was only able to notice abi claims after chrush:
    1/. /usr/bin/abiword: line 67: 25477 Interrupt
    $ABISUITE_LIBEXEC/AbiWord_d "$@"
    2/. /usr/bin/abiword: line 67: 25505 Interrupt
    $ABISUITE_LIBEXEC/AbiWord_d "$@"

    I do not know what does it means. I only guess that things are somewhat
    more compicated then I would wish for myself.

    Isn't AW a kind of God's (or Evil's) Playground, is it?

    I pray for good health and big money for every one of You, developers of
    OpenSource applications. I like AbiWord realy very much. I only can't use
    it. But this is also a case of any Eden, not just of young crippled

    Best regards,

    Czuję ucho twe miękkie -- zgrzane przy mym uchu,
    Lecz go nie śmiem ochłodzić wilgotnych warg brzegiem,
    By dreszczem nieobacznym lub pieszczot zabiegiem
    Nie skłócić nabytego od zmierzchów bezruchu. (Leśmian "O zmierzchu")
