Description

I copied GS fonts folder from GStool folder to the Java 1.6 \lib folder and solved Multivalent problem. Suggest, if license permits, using Ghostscript's fonts instead of whatever you've suggested previously. BTW, Multivalent is found on sourceforge.net.

Replying to dmik:

It took me three seconds to Google this and then download them <http://superb-dca2.dl.sourceforge.net/project/gs-fonts/gs-fonts/8.11%20%28base%2035%2C%20GPL%29/ghostscript-fonts-std-8.11.tar.gz>. As to why that program needed them, you'll have to ask the author(s)'s of that program. But if I was to hazard a guess, that there were several glyphs that don't appear in most other fonts, and are required. Multivalent is a mathematics program.

Does Google also search your brain? Cool, please tell me how to make such a request and I will use it in the future.

Anyway, I don't see how that relates to OpenJDK -- it's an application specific problem and should either be solved on the application level or on the user level (by installing the required fonts).
