Hi,

I'm using BIRT_2.3.2. I need to export a report to PDF using the
default viewer servlet deployed in a linux server. The report contains
text in Arial font. In Windows XP the exported PDF file works fine, but
when the servlet was deployed in linux system the bold characters are not
displayed properly. It is displayed in very bold and compressed format,
but normal characters are displaying properly in Arial font.

In order to add Arial font to the linux system, I copied the arial.ttf
file to a folder in the linux sytem(/var/font/truetype) and added the
following line in
platform/plugins/org.eclipse.birt.report.engine.fonts_2.3.2. r232_20090202/fontsConfig.xml

<font-paths>
---------------
---------------
---------------
<path path="/var/font/truetype" />
</font-paths>

If I'm not doing this step the all the contents are displayed in Times New
Roman font.

Have anyone faced this problem? Any solution?

Thank you.

Regards,
Arun
