I found an utility in my SuSE distribution create an afm metric file out of
the pfb/pfm file; it's pf2afm and it works well.
But this does not solve my problems.
I am trying to use the music notation software Encore 4.1.1 under wine. But
possibly it's the ttf font which is not found properly. I had installed
encore under pure win98se about two years ago including ttf and ps versions
of the program specific fonts.
I also installed the ttf and ps fonts to the xserver. Other win programs
displays this fonts in a font chossing dialog.
I tried the win fontviewer "fontview" to examine the problem and found
something which I do not understand:
wine --winver win98 /dosC/windows/fontview /dosC/windows/fonts/an.ttf
pops up an error message that "/dosC/windows/fonts/an.ttf" is not a valid
wine --winver win98 /dosC/windows/fontview "c:\\dosC/windows/fonts/an.ttf"
wine --winver win98 /dosC/windows/fontview an.ttf
directly started from the win font dir worked properly.
It is possible that wine looks for fonts in a way that Encore does not
recognizes? Encore allways said that the font Anastasia is not installed?
