I installed ganttchart plugin. but doesn't work. I just followed this web site's guide. (all pre-required installed and using example in this web site)

Here is my trac.log.

See if you can find a copy of arial.ttf (debian systems can install them with a package called msttcorefonts, look in /usr/share/fonts/truetype/msttcorefonts/).

Now, put this file in the $PWD of the trac script. If you are using tracd, then this is where you called tracd from. In an FCGI scenario then this is the dir where the fcgi script lives (in my case /var/www/cgi-bin).

Ideally there would be a configurable prefix for the fonts, and probably also let you choose an alternative font.

Sorry, I am using Apache with mod_wsgi, I have arial.ttf but I couldn´t make it work. Do you have any idea where do I have to put arial.ttf?

comment:6 Changed 8 years ago by anonymous

to solve this do that:

open and go to:

font = ImageFont.truetype("arial.ttf", 12)

and add this:

font_path = self.config.get('gantt', 'font_path')
font = ImageFont.truetype(font_path,12)

now in gantt section in yout trac.ini add:

cache_dir = /tmp/gantt_cache
font_path = /path/to/my/font/arial.ttf

now you can use a custom font in a custom place.

I have the same issue. Moreover, even after changing the files as suggested by jsantana and re-cooking the egg, the problem was not solved. I've even deleted the egg and the plugin's directory from my machine, then I've downloaded it again and changed the before cooking the egg. Trac still shows an error at line 465, which is now commented.

Any clues?

On CentOS 5, I solved this using the instruction above, only I installed liberation-fonts instead of the MS fonts.

Him I'm the anonymous who posted on 09/17/09 20:39:21.

I've searched for some liberation-fonts similar package on Debian and I found ttf-liberation, which was already installed on my system.

I still get

although my 465 line is a commented one. :(

        # from line 465 to 467
        #font = ImageFont.truetype("arial.ttf", 12)
        font_path = self.config.get ('gantt', 'font_path')
        font = ImageFont.truetype(font_path, 12)

Owner: changed from malsmith to Ryan J Ollos
Status: newassigned

Issue confirmed on Ubuntu 10.04 with Trac 0.11.7. Applying patch from #7129 to see if that fixes the issue.

comment:12 Changed 6 years ago by Ryan J Ollos

On Ubuntu, the following works:

  • Apply patch in #7129 (to be applied to the trunk in moments).
  • Install the msttcorefonts package.
  • In trac.ini, set font_path = /usr/share/fonts/truetype/msttcorefonts/arial.ttf.

Project wiki page has been updated: wiki/GanttChartPlugin.
