RE: a2ps broken by recent update to something else



Interesting.  At some point in the past, something changed
/usr/share/a2ps/afm/fonts.map on my machine to use cour.afm.  I don't know
what made this change, but I'm pretty sure I didn't do it, because when I
modify config files I RCS them, and this file wasn't RCS'd.  In any case,
uninstalling and reinstalling a2ps made the problem go away by replacing the
a2ps fonts.map file with the stock one from the a2ps RPM that uses a
different afm file for the Courier font.

That's a fonts metric file (for courier?). These normally live in a
couple of directories under /usr/share/. The a2ps package provides a
bunch of them itself (and is working fine for the documents I have
here). I don't appear to have a cour.afm file anywhere on my system.
