SOLVED - FreeOffice errors during install
« on: January 14, 2020, 08:22:38 pm »
Hi,when installing the FreeOffice amd64 deb package downloaded from their site, i see this error regarding fonts as follows...
Warning: Missing charsets in String to FontSet conversion
The installation does complete as normal, the apps seem to function correctly. Anyone else encountered this?
Many thanks

Hi Captain Custard, how's it going  ;)?  You could try the solution provided in this link: “Warning: Missing charsets in String to FontSet conversion” – how to resolve the xclock warning message.  If you need further assistance, please ask us.  I hope this helps  ;)

Important:  Don't execute the commands as root.  Only enter (Copy & Paste) the command, not the # into the terminal window  ;).

Hi Andy, thanks for your input. Followed the guidance in the link you gave and sure enough the variable LC_ALL value isn't set.  Searched for the file called .bash_profile to add the suggested fix but couldn't find it anywhere on the entire drive.Unfortunately two of us have spent almost an hour on this here which means it's become expensive, so for now I've restored the drive backup to before FreeOffice installation. Perhaps at some point in the future I'll return to this.
