Dear list,

I found that some tools (eg FastQC and MetaProSIP) have problems with missing fonts (the former is java and the latter caused by R) on our compute nodes which do not have xorg and no fonts installed.

On the cluster head nodes several font related packages are installed:


It seems that conda no fonts are available. Is there somebody with similar problems. Any hint which of the packages is/are actually needed. Maybe our admins could install them...

I also found for MetaProSIP that several xorg-... packages are needed. Should such dependencies be handled by the conda packages or by the Galaxy tool.
