    Forgot to copy this to the list, in case anyone else has the answer


    Thank you, that stopped the complaints. However, it does not print the right
    fonts and many words are run together or even overlapped. I changed permissions
    of the font files to 666 in case that was the problem but it made no difference.
    Anyone any ideas?
