ghostscript fails to find Helvetica font
 
Hello.

Recently ghostscript stopped working on my ~amd64 system. The error
message indicates it cannot find basic fonts like Times and Helvetica.


$ ps2pdf a.ps
Error: /invalidfont in /findfont
Operand stack:
Times-Italic@0 --nostringval-- Times-Italic
Execution stack:
%interp_exit .runexec2 --nostringval-- --nostringval-- --nostringval-- 2 %stopped_push --nostringval-- --nostringval-- --nostringval-- false 1 %stopped_push 1878 1 3 %oparray_pop 1877 1 3 %oparray_pop 1861 1 3 %oparray_pop 1755 1 3 %oparray_pop --nostringval-- %errorexec_pop .runexec2 --nostringval-- --nostringval-- --nostringval-- 2 %stopped_push --nostringval-- --nostringval-- 1836 3 4 %oparray_pop

Any clues?

Have had such stuff for quite some time…
unfortunately I did not write that down… :(

I remember it was some problem with font loading in X, somehow the order mattered, had to edit xorg.conf and .xinitrc to get it all right
