I reproduced this by deleting HELV.PFB from PSFONTS.

Is HELV.PFB present in your PSFONTS folder?

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

Problem is due to broken fontconfig files.

If Lucide writes such messages to stderr, while needed font files exists in PSFONTS - delete \PSFONTS\fonts.cache-1, \PSFONTS\PFM\fonts.cache-1, %HOME%\fonts.conf and %HOME%\fonts.cache-1. Lucide will recreate these files on next run.
