Hi,

I'm using dev-lang/R-2.14.1 and have a few problems with it finding fonts for drawing graphs.

When I attempt to draw a graph I'm told....

Code:

Error in title(main = main, sub = sub, xlab = xlab, ylab = ylab, ...) :
  X11 font -adobe-helvetica-%s-%s-*-*-%d-*-*-*-*-*-*-*, face 1 at size 12 could not be loaded


So I opted to install the adobe fonts which for whatever reason weren't already installed...

Code:

emerge -av font-adobe-75dpi font-adobe-100dpi font-adobe-utopia-75dpi font-adobe-utopia-100dpi


But to no avail, even after rebuilding dev-lang/R.

Could this be a wider issue with Xorg not finding the fonts?

Any insight/advice on how to resolve this would be greatly appreciated,

cheers,

slack

Solved this by enabling the USE="cairo" option for dev-lang/R
