The font “symbol.ttf” was not installed yet
Substitute it with "Arial"
Make sure your local “~/.fonts.conf” or “/etc/fonts/fonts.conf” file points to “$ROOOTSYS/fonts” directory to get the proper support for ROOT TLatex class

Hi Giacomo,

According to the error messages provided by you, fonts are not
installed correctly on your system. Check also the settings of
ROOTSYS, LD_LIBRARY_PATH and QTDIR. I see no problem to get the
browser by running this version of root with Qt layer from my machine
(as included output shows below):

Dear Ilka,
thanks for your reply. About the QTlayer I am using, I have no clue: I am running on cern lxplus cluster. Same thing about fonts: how can I make sure that they are installed correctly (is it up to me???)
Note that with ROOT4 I have no problem.

Cheers
Giacomo

Hi Ilka,

there was no .fonts.conf file in my home area, so I copied the file /etc/fonts/fonts.conf to my home and added the line

/afs/cern.ch/cms/external/lcg/external/root/5.11.02/slc3_ia32_gcc323/root/fonts

with this modification, the first error message disappears, i.e. I no longer get

root
** $Id: TGQt.cxx,v 1.29 2006/03/27 08:10:59 antcheva Exp $ this=0x9290200
The font “symbol.ttf” was not installed yet
Substitute it with "Arial"
Make sure your local “~/.fonts.conf” or “/etc/fonts/fonts.conf” file points to “$ROOOTSYS/fonts” directory to get the proper support for ROOT TLatex class

so this is good, however, now ROOT takes ages to initialize and above all when I try to launch the TBrowser I get the usual crash…

Any idea?

Cheers
Giacomo

Hi Giacomo,

For more details about fonts (in case of problems) you can check the topic root.cern.ch/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=1859

It is strange that you have ROOTSYS sets to version 5.11.02, but root
logo shows * Version 5.10/00c 31 March 2006 * - that means
somewhere you have mixed settings that cause the problem. You have to
check that with someone of your colleagues, as well the settings of
LD_LIBRARY_PATH. I used:
QTDIR=/afs/cern.ch/sw/lcg/external/qt/3.3.4/slc3_gcc323
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=.:/afs/cern.ch/cms/external/lcg/external/root/5.10.00c/slc3_ia32_gcc323/root/lib:/afs/cern.ch/sw/lcg/external/qt/3.3.4/slc3_gcc323/lib
ROOTSYS=/afs/cern.ch/cms/external/lcg/external/root/5.10.00c/slc3_ia32_gcc323/root

Cheers, Ilka

[/quote]This indicates you have the custom “rootrc” ROOT resource file that activates the QT-layer instead of the “native” X11[quote]The font “symbol.ttf” was not installed yet

Make sure your local “~/.fonts.conf” or “/etc/fonts/fonts.conf” file points to “$ROOOTSYS/fonts” directory to get the proper support for ROOT
[/quote]This manifests that your local Qt version was installed with so called xft font support. The problem is the “xft” Qt fonts doesn’t provide any equivalent for the “symbol.ttf” true type font that ROOT needs for variouse reason. First of all to render properly the LaTex glyphs.
The solution is to re-install Qt with “no xft font support”. Alas Qt doesn’t provide any option to turn this support off at run-time.
I would like to mention the Qt xft font support slows down the ROOT rendering significantly. With the remote X-terminal this can slow you by the order of magnitude.

[quote]root [0] TBrowser b
Error in : QtImage[.so | .sl | .dl | .a | .dll] does not exist
[/quote]This shows that from your custom “.rootrc” you ordered the Qt-based implementation of the ROOT TImage class. This implementation is not a part of the regular ROOT distribution from CERN. See: root.bnl.gov/QtRoot/QtRoot.html#what
The simplest way to resolve the issue is to find and remove from your ROOT resource file the line that loads the Qt-based plugin for TImage to use the regular ASimage-based one.

Can you try that to see whether it helps. If you still have the problem with the Qt-layer you may communicate the Qt/Root dedicated mail list

[quote=“gbruno”]Dear Ilka,
thanks for your reply. About the QTlayer I am using, I have no clue: I am running on cern lxplus cluster.[/quote]Are you working in your own account? I belive there is a custom :bulb: “.rootrc” file either under your $home or your working directory and this resource file does activate the Qt-layer with Qt-extensions for you. Please, look for such file and remove it as soon as you do not know where this file came from and what this file is needed for.

Dear Valeri,
thanks. You are right, I had a .rootrc file in my home directory, which I was given a long ago to solve a specific issue with one graphical application. I removed it and now all problems are gone. If you are interested the rootrc file I had is attached
Thanks again
Cheers
Giacomo
