    I managed to get Abi running with TT fonts using the information on the website
    (ttmkfdir, ttftools and all that) and I put the fonts file in
    /usr/local/share/Abisuite in place of the Abi fonts file (which I renamed). All
    seemed to be well until I went to print something when a box came up saying:

    Font data file [/usr/local/share/Abisuite/fonts/Forte.ttf] can not be opened for

    This is the first font in the document. The font files are there - ttf, afm and
    u2g - and the font displays on the screen. Then another box came up repeating
    the message followed by:

    Did it disappear on us? Abiword cannot print without this file; your Postscript
    might be missing this resource.

    Can anyone help me please?
