I have successfully installed maya on fedora 8. Everything seems ok but i have a really embrassing problem with it.
When i start maya i got this message (and when i do everything):

// Error: Failed trying to load font : -*-helvetica-bold-r-normal--10-*-*-*-*-*-iso8859-1 //

I use every day maya so this is a big problem for me.

install with yum :

and check in /etc/X11/fontpath.d the link of font path. ie :

if no correct the link ( ln -fs )

And, can you explain how to install maya without SIGNAL 11

signal 11 error can be caused by different things
if its happening when you start maya, it may be a graphics card that doesn't have all the openGL capabilities maya needs, or misconfiguration in your xorg config file.

Re: Maya 8.5 helvetica font problem

hey guys!
That's because maya cant find right fonts as you already know...
Im not much in ferdora but here's how i solved it in debian...

first you need to install font libs over synamptic, I installed xfonts-100dpi and xfonts-75dpi...
you can look in /usr/share/fonts/X11/ for new folders with fonts... if you have such font folders than you need to refresh/rehash font libs with xset....

this is how it goes on debian... im sure it something like that on fedora too...

xset +fp /usr/share/fonts/X11/100dpi/
xset +fp /usr/share/fonts/X11/75dpi/
xset fp rehash

restart maya and you wont have fonts problems anymore!

hope this helps....
