Bug ID: 1779123
           Summary: Pango no longer supports type1 fonts
           Product: Fedora
           Version: rawhide
            Status: NEW
         Component: pango
        QA Contact:
  Target Milestone: ---
    Classification: Fedora

Description of problem:
In pango 1.44, pango dropped support for type1 fonts. Therefore, no application
which uses pango for font loading can use type1 fonts any more.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
pango-1.44.6-1.fc31.x86_64 (and later)

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Upgrade F31 or rawhide
2. Open any pango-using application
3. Try to use type1 font

Actual results:
No type1 font is usable

Expected results:
Type1 font is usable

Additional info:
bug 1753295 is the same bug for dropped bitmap font support. Over there,
workarounds specific for bitmap fonts (conversion to opentype bitmap fonts) are
discussed. An attempt to discuss type1 there failed.

This bug here is specifically about type1 fonts to discuss ways (or their
absence) to deal with pangos dropped type 1 support.
