Re: convert & pango - "couldn't load font"

Other notes: - As an fyi: I believe there is a bug report for pango+Windows that Anthony maybe assigned to himself a year ago - I saw that somewhere. - I don't see any open issues at github that are similar.

Re: convert & pango - "couldn't load font"

Some things I tried this AM. 1. downloaded imagick_type_gen (chrome sees it as a python file; add a pl extension instead) 2. tried running imagick_type_gen.pl with no options - can't do; script uses "locate", and there is no analog for a "whence"-type program under Win 3. created a listing of ttf fo...

Re: convert & pango - "couldn't load font"

I am just asking you to tell me what the suffix is on the fonts that fail. Do all the the fonts with a same suffix fail? Thanks for your patience fmw. IM sees ttf and ttc fonts - literally hundreds. Of the 22 that process correctly with pango, they are all ttf files . There are also fon files; IM d...

I was asking about .ttf vs other types (suffixes). Which suffix type fails or is it font by font irrespective of the type of font?
I think that last post before my posts today has those fonts listed. I will review those lists and confirm back so you aren't wasting your time on this.

Re: convert & pango - "couldn't load font"

A bit of background. Basically, I am trying to figure out how I will package IM_portable_Win10 with my project (MS VS 2017). In this respect, I am trying to figure out what will need to be configured up-front (like available fonts, ENV variables, etc.) so that selections can be limited (if necessary...

Re: convert & pango - "couldn't load font"

What types of fonts do not work. ImageMagick cannot use every type of font. Limitations come from either freetype or fontconfig delegate libraries. I am not sure of the limitations of PANGO. It may be restricted on the types of fonts it can use. But I am not an expert of PANGO and what fonts it can...

Re: convert & pango - "couldn't load font"

Thanks a lot for your response. I am running under win10. Should I use this "type" file? http://www.imagemagick.org/source/type-windows.xml type-windows.xml seems to have most of the fonts on my system. But type-windows.xml was not included with the portable installation. Should I set $MAGICK_HOME m...

Re: convert & pango - "couldn't load font"

A few weeks ago I documented some issues in this thread about problems with fonts under win10 when using pango. Since there haven't been any additional insights, and since I'm kinda new in "IM-land", I'm wondering if I should move this thread over to the "bugs" section. No worries if not, just tryin...

Does "-geometry" round non-integer args?

I've been using the following command line with the -geometry option. It works as expected, and no errors or warnings are thrown.

IM is very good SW

I've been using IM for about a month now. I've read all of the man and example pages. Every day I discover something new. (Like today, someone reported a bug with "-dissolve", which I hadn't experimented with - I then worked with the -dissolve option, and I'll likely include it in my project.) Very ...

Re: convert & pango - "couldn't load font"

Summary: I've been having problems getting certain fonts to work properly with convert+pango under win10. Most fonts processed by "convert" under win10 (my system) give warnings. I can live with the fonts that it does process properly, but would like to understand more about the fonts that give warn...

Re: convert & pango - "couldn't load font"

Hi - thanks again fmw. I tried using the full path in my input text file. Did it both ways (unix, win). Here are the command lines and warnings. C:\0\mm>"C:\Program Files\ImageMagick\convert" -size 1024x768 -background "#10253F" -gravity Center pango:"@itext_3.txt" image_3.jpg ** (convert.exe:11092)...

Re: convert & pango - "couldn't load font"

Summary: I've been working with the pango markup in an input text file. I still can't seem to get fonts to process properly. And I may be way off - a little guidance will be helpful. My Win10 system sees the fonts listed in the op. Convert command line. "C:\Program Files\ImageMagick\convert" -size 1...

Re: convert & pango - "couldn't load font"

This is likely relevant, so I'll dig into this for now. https://www.imagemagick.org/discourse-server/viewtopic.php?t=33136 [update] The link above describes the same problem that someone ran into around nov-2017. If you set fonts and sizes in the pango markup, instead of on the command line, it’ll w...
