What a mess!
There's a comment just yesterday at
suggesting that there will be some Fedora changes in the urw font
package coming this week. So let's wait for the dust to settle, and
then I hope we can just copy whatever solution Fedora comes up with.
That works for me. :-)
I've created and uploaded a new subpackage urw-base35-fonts-legacy
that contains old versions of the fonts. These should work with xfig.
The fonts are in /usr/share/X11/fonts/urw-fonts, with a symlink in
I did some limited testing, and xfig seems to find the fonts. (I
didn't call xset or do anything else special.)
Achim, if I'm right, you don't have to do anything with xfig except to
add a dependency on urw-base35-fonts-legacy.
But someone more familiar with xfig than I am should test this.
Magic, magic and xfig works.
I have downloaded the urw-base35-fonts-legacy (and urw-base35-fonts)
They are, as you said, in
/usr/share/X11/fonts/urw-fonts, with a symlink in /etc/X11/fontpath.d/
and the xfig picked them up automatically.
