    Adding Fonts to Oracle Reports Builder 12c -  Unix

    3296184

      Team,

               We are using Oracle Reports 12c (12.2.1) in Linux server.

               The server was previously in windows platform and we used some custom fonts to display the report output in Arabic.

               Now part of the report is displaying in Arabic and the other part is displaying as junk characters.

               We have installed the custom font in the Linux server and copied the relevant TTF files into $domain_home\reports\fonts as well.

               Still we are not getting the custom font in the font picker of the report builder of the unix server.

               Anything else to be done to bring the new font into the font picker of the report builder in Unix ?

      Regards

      Sankar

          Yes Sankar,

           

          you have to do other things..... :-)

           

          edit the file uifont.ali to map fonts.

           

          for instance:

          1. helvetica..Italic.Bold.. = "arialbi.ttf"
          2. helvetica...Bold..       = "arialbd.ttf"
          3. helvetica..Italic...     = "ariali.ttf"
          4. helvetica.....           = "arial.ttf"
          5. courier..Italic.Bold.. = "courbi.ttf"
          6. courier...Bold.. = "courbd.ttf"
          7. courier..Italic... = "couri.ttf"
          8. courier..... = "cour.ttf"
          9. times..Italic.Bold.. = "timesbi.ttf"
          10. times...Bold.. = "timesbd.ttf"
          11. times..Italic... = "timesi.ttf"
          12. times..... = "times.ttf"
