Re: Presentation and interactive diagrams

The only "problem" that I've found to do all the process is that Dia
needs a X session to work, and I was wondering if it possible to use the
command line export option without this need (I am not a programmer, so
if I'm saying stupid things, excuse me). If it's possible to do the
export process without any gtk-display, I think that Dia can be easily
use to these kind of interactive diagrams.

There are fake X servers available, but running Dia without GTK would be
difficult at best.  For one thing, text widths are calculated by GDK
(though that can be done with FreeType now, but it asks X for font
information, too).  Hmmm... looks like I broke PNG export in CVS by adding
a dialog.  Gotta have a check for noninteractiveness.


Once FreeType will ask the X Font Server only, there will be more chances. I don't know why it doesn't do it 
yet...gotta ask now. With dia, you must have your font path defined in XF86Config, but for mozilla (as an 
example), that's not needed to actually get your fonts working.
