Re: Problem starting gnumeric


How is your gnome-print installed? From distro?
Have you installed ghostscript-fonts package? If you have
not, do that, and reinstall gnome-print, as otherwise it
cannot find standard PostScript fonts (Helvetica, Times),
and gnumeric complains with reason.
Otherwise, can you check, whether
/usr/share/fonts/fontmap exists, and if yes, take a look
into it. It's format should be readable - try to find
font entry for Helvetica, and check whether both files
"glyphs" and "metrics" referred by it exist.

best wishes,
