I've probably found out what's exactly the problem but can't solve it:
my font server is given in my /etc/XF86Config by :
and _not_ by
# FontPath "unix/:7100"
This second solution doesn't work with my X-version ()
and in /usr/lib/gimp/1.1/plug-ins/font_table, I can see
use Gimp::Feature 'unix';
and in /usr/lib/gimp/1.1/plug-ins/Perl-Server :
$use_tcp = 1; # tcp is enabled only when authorization is available
could it be my problem ?
??? what does this mean and how can I "make authorization available" ???
All other X-applications can perfectly see and use my true type fonts (applix,
xfontsel, display) so I don't think my font-server is misconfigured.
Thank you for any help !
