I like the text entry box using gtk/Pango

I like the fact that you actually get the font rendered the same way all your actual applications will render it Smile
Unless it's possible to get sfontview to consider fontconfig settings...?

Thunor

I am experiencing an issue with the mktemp binary.

In pfontview, I get this
Code:
# pfontview AGENCY.TTF
mktemp: invalid option -- '-'
Usage: mktemp [-V] | [-dqtu] [-p prefix] [template]
Couldn't create temporary directory.


It seems that the --directory option isn't supported by mktemp. Slacko is using wary's mktemp but slackware's has the same behaviour. It's part of the 'bin' package in slackware.

In coreutils, slackware ships with mktemp-gnu, which does recognise that option. But this is not built into Puppy.

Any ideas?

Thanks

I've had a look at a couple of man pages and I think "--tmpdir" is the problem so you could try "-t" instead. I've just tested mktemp -d -t test.XXXXXXXX on Slacko 5.3.3 and it works as expected.

Let me know if it solves the issue for you and I'll modify the source code.

Cheers,
Thunor

yes of course, I did mean "--tmpdir" Embarassed

Anyway, I did try -t and it did work. Smile

Thanks

PS, I might ship both in next slacko, small enough.

Thanks Mick, I've updated the pfontview source package. That would be great to have it in slacko Smile

Cheers.

Just for the record, Pfontview and sfontview both work with OTF font files.
