    REP-1352: The fonts specified for this report cannot be found for the chara

      REP-1352: The fonts specified for this report cannot be found for the character set specified by NLS_LANG.

      Problem:
      The Xhp(HP Xserver running in virtual frame buffer mode) emulates a phisical display being absent from the ekhanya server. The Xhp process is started at boot time after the xfs(font server) process. Therefore the Xhp process connects to xfs(running on port 7000) for any font requests. When any Oracle Applications process is started(normally a report) that has a .pdf(bitmap) output-type the graphic output is send to the display set by the DISPLAY variable (host-ip:10.0) which is the display the Xhp process is listening on.
      Almost every second(not predictable) report being run from Oracle is failing with Oracle Reports error:

      REP-1352: The fonts specified for this report cannot be found for the character set specified by NLS_LANG.

      Action Taken:
      The Oracle Applications system has always(from installation start 2005)
      been using character set: WE8ISO8859P9 without having any problems.

      This problem recently started happening. In trying to resolve issue the following has been done: Stop Xhp and xfs and running VNC as the Xserver instead but got the same error message.
      Set the DISPLAY variable to server: (of server which is not having problem) but received the same error.
      Chaning the xfs config file: /etc/X11/fs/config font path to various settings, but received the same error

      If we set the variable: NLS_LANG back to AMERICAN_AMERICA.WE8ISO8859P9
      instead of: AMERICAN_AMERICA.WE8ISO8859P1(current setting)
      the REP-1352 problem is still there.

      System which works using NLS_LANG: AMERICAN_AMERICA.WE8ISO8859P9 and do not have this problem.

      Is this issue OS related? OS running on is HP-UX
      Server that works with the font character set is running eBusiness Suite
      11.5.10.2
      Server that does not work with the font character set is running eBusiness Suite 11.5.10.1
      Does anyone know a fix for this?
