I have a cron which runs and takes a screenshot of a specific url. The job is:
xvfb-run --server-args="-screen 0, 1024x768x24" /usr/bin/cutycapt --min-width=1200 --min-height=1200 --delay=1000 --url=http://themer.mydomain.co.uk/_sh.php?id=1 --out=/home/www/mydomain/co.uk/themer/1.png
This runs and stores the screenshot fine, and when using webfonts provided from Google they load properly.
But when we are using fonts from MS like Perpetua it doesn't render the font, just a fallback font.
So I gathered I needed to install the fonts, but this is where I am getting stuck, I made a folder called
Then I uploaded all my
.ttf fonts from my Windows fonts folder.
sudo fc-cache -vf
/usr/share/fonts: caching, new cache contents: 0 fonts, 4 dirs .... /usr/share/fonts/truetype/myfonts: caching, new cache contents: 1083 fonts, 0 dirs .... fc-cache: succeeded
I reboot Ubuntu and try generate the screenshot again but it does not use the fonts.
So reading around I thought perhaps I need to install the fonts into the X11 directory, so I do the same process inside the X11 directory but it still will not use the fonts
Does anyone have any idea what I could try next?
I've done some more research, I done:
mkfontdir /path/to/fonts/folder mkfontscale /path/to/fonts/folder
which has created a
.scale file but this still does not use the fonts
