Bug Fix Advisory liberation-fonts bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2012:0384-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2012-03-13
Last updated on: 2012-06-20
Affected Products: Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 6)

Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation (v. 6)

Details

Updated liberation-fonts packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 6.

The liberation-fonts packages provide fonts intended to replace the three most
commonly used fonts on Microsoft systems: Times New Roman, Arial, and Courier
New.

This update fixes the following bug:

* Previously, the "fonts.dir" file provided with the liberation-fonts packages
was empty. As a consequence, legacy applications were not able to make use of
liberation-fonts even when the package was installed. This was because the
"mkfontscale" command was run after the "mkfontdir" command. The order of
running the commands has been changed and legacy applications can use
liberation-fonts as expected. (BZ#772165)

All users of liberation-fonts are advised to upgrade to these updated packages,
which fix this bug.
