Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] Entity -> fo -> pdf with a Unicode font..


No problem, I have also managed to remove the special "DRM copy protection".

Under debian sid :

apt-get install ant sun-java5-jdk sun-java5-demo
update-java-alternatives --set java-1.5.0-sun
svn co  http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/xmlgraphics/fop/trunk  fop
http://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/attachment.cgi?id=17203
mv 'attachment.cgi?id=17203' cid.patch
cd fop/src
patch -p0 < ../../cid.patch

(fix the two failures in java/org/apache/fop/pdf/PDFCMap.java.rej and
java/org/apache/fop/pdf/PDFFactory.java.rej - the patch is a bit old
the other failures are only comments)

ant package
./fop -v
FOP Version svn-trunk
...
...

./fop test.fo test.pdf

And it works!

Easy as 1,2, 579,35 and a half..

pasting yields now "\u2192 Text \u21db"
