Upgrade 11.0->12.0 Looses fonts in ps2pdf, gv, and xpdf

Upgraded my main server/workstation from 11.0 to 12.0. Now gv and xpdf display blank pages with errors of not finding fonts, and ps2pdf also will no longer work.

/usr/share/ghostscript/fonts/ is a softlink to /usr/share/fonts/Type1.

Haven't had this happen in any prior upgrade and I would like to fix it right away.

I reinstalled fonts and gnutls. Now xpdf, gv, and ps2pdf work. Apparently some packages either did not install during the upgrade or they were not completely installed.

This thread is closed as fixed.

Now to get the other two resolved!



fonts, lost, upgrade
