00:09 gtodd vicash: I get this error:
00:09 gtodd Fontconfig warning: FcPattern object scalable does not accept value 1(i)  .
00:09 gtodd about fonts :)
00:10 gtodd with "demo prima" ... and the demos won't run
00:47 vicash gtodd: i get that error on Mac OSX
00:47 vicash gtodd: but my programs work fine on Mac OSX
00:48 vicash i have not tried "demo prima" but i have tried a few examples in the examples folder
00:48 vicash gtodd: what OS r u on ?
01:03 gtodd vicash: BSD
01:03 gtodd unix
01:04 gtodd I can get Prima's VB and other examples to run outside of pdl just not inside
01:13 vicash gtodd: i have not tested BSD, but i assume that your font problems are the same as that of Mac OSX. COuld just be related to the fontconfig library on both.
01:13 vicash gtodd: what do you mean outside of PDL ? do these examples need PDL ?
01:14 vicash gtodd: also btw, I have never used VB :) so i cannot help you there. but i have PDL running with Prima well using PDL::Graphics::Prima and Module::Build::PDL
01:25 gtodd no just to indicate that PDL mostly works and Prima mostly works
02:30 vicash ok i solved my problem. i install GTK+2.0 and a bunch of various fonts and libfreetype development headers, rebuilt Prima and it worked
02:36 vicash gtodd: maybe you need to install fontconfig and libfreetype development libraries, rebuild Prima and see. You can run "perl Makefile.PL" in the Prima tarball manually to see what libraries are found and what are missing and then adjust accordingly by installing the missing ones. then stuff should work.
02:53 gtodd it's just the normal XS madness I think :)
02:54 gtodd or perhaps not in a clean .... perlbrew environment Prima and 2.06 work fine w/ 2.07 not so much
02:55 gtodd will dig a bit more , cheers
