I got an interesting bug report today from a fellow who develops a
popular open source program for vector graphics editing (Inkscape).
Apparently, there is a problem in Demeter's installer that has an impact
on the ability of that program (and possibly others) in accessing system
font files. The issue with Inkscape is described here:
I mention this here on the mailing list in an effort to help the folks
who maintain Inkscape.
If you use Demeter and Inkscape on your Windows machine, there is a
problem and it is my fault :(
The simplest solution is to uninstall Demeter, then continue using Inkscape.
If that's not true or if someone needs a better solution right now, post
here and I will help you work out a solution.
I think the real fix to the problem is simple and I will work on a new
installer this month.
