XManager 2.0 HP fonts

Yesterday I tried to upgrade from Xmanager 1.3.9 to Xmanager 2.0. For one of the applications (Mentor HDL designer v2003.3) on our HPUX 11.11 system the HP font pack is needed, we learned from version 1.3.9. Unfortunately after installing the font pack the software doesn't run. An error is given. The exact text of the error I've pasted below. Error: Could not create FontSet for font '-adobe-helvetica-medium-r-normal-*-12-*-*-*-*-*-*'. The following character sets cannot be drawn with this font: HP-ROMAN8 HP-ROMAN8 How can I get the application to run as it did in 1.3.9? Thanks in advance, Alexander

Hi, I went through with experimenting and I discovered that the problem is fixed by copying the mkfntdir.exe to the Fonts\HP directory and running it there. Is this not done automatically when additional fonts are installed?

Thanks for your information.

There was an error in copying FONTS.DIR file to the font folder. We will fix this problem and update our font packs soon.
