Re: [Swftools-common] pls explain the format of add-to-xpdfrc and a problem on CJK

Thank you Chris and Irving. I solved the problem.
First, install all neccesary fonts from xpdf.
$sudo apt-cache search xpdf-*
Force system's fontconfig to be refreshed by using "fc-cache -fv".
Go to /etc/xpdf/ , look around. These are system-wide configuration files.
Since the pdf2swf takes the -s languagedir= option, we can specify it
to /etc/xpdf/ .
But it won't work!
$ pdf2swf 165660001.pdf -o tmp/1967.%.swf -s languagedir=/etc/xpdf
NOTICE Adding /etc/xpdf to language pack directories
ERROR Could not open /etc/xpdf/add-to-xpdfrc
The reason is that pdf2swf seeks for add-to-xpdfrc file. The file has
to be there! Simply cp /etc/xpdf/includes /etc/xpdf/add-to-xpdfrc
will do the trick. Since the includes file include all other
/etc/xpdf$ cat includes
# This file was automatically generated by /usr/sbin/update-xpdfrc.
# Instead, add or remove files in /etc/xpdf/ then run
# /usr/sbin/update-xpdfrc to regenerate this file.
Another way is to copy to includes file to somewhere else and rename
it to add-to-xpdfrc. E.g, put it in your ~/pdf2swf.conf/add-to-xpdfrc
. Then run,
$pdf2swf file.pdf -o /tmp/file.%.swf -s languagedir = ~/pdf2swf.conf/
On a ubuntu gnu/linux with swftools 0.9.0, the aboved confi solved
most of fonts problem. On a centos 5.5, I ended up compile everyting
from source: swftools, t1lib, xpdf, freetype2 AND copy the
/usr/share/fonts /usr/share/xpdf from ubuntu to centos. The builds
for centos are too out-dated!
There's only one issue remain with cmap.

The output swf is OK. But I don't know what the error is about.
