14:25 gtodd I got  OpenGL::     to install somehow :)   so new PDL went well as did Prima ... whee ...  (Prima's VB.pl is great)
14:26 gtodd but ... in pdl's shell/repl ....
14:26 gtodd demo prima doesn't work
14:26 gtodd Fontconfig warning: FcPattern object scalable does not accept value 1(i)  .
14:27 gtodd .. not sure where that is coming from .... I get that error in the console when running Prima demos but they do work in pdl's shell they don't launch

22:38 vicash Hi. FYI: I got Prima, Prima::OpenGL, PDL, PDL::Graphics::Prima, POE::Loop::Prima, Module::Build::PDL to install just fine on Debian 7 running on the Beaglebone Black (ARMv7) embedded board
22:38 vicash However, the only problem I face is with unicode text-out in Prima
22:39 vicash i am using the fonts that are supported on the Debian distro such as "times" but all I see when I try to use the "charnames"  module and print "\N{UPWARDS ARROW}" is a  square box. This however works perfectly on both the Mac OSX and Linux Debian for Intel Processors.
22:40 vicash I am not sure how to debug this or figure out what is missing. I have installed all of the various font libraries and fonts available in the stock Debian distro.
22:43 sivoais vicash: just guessing here, but sometimes the fonts only have certain characters at certain font sizes and they show boxes otherwise
23:08 vicash ok
