Re: Fonts reorganization and additions

The update gave the following error:

  Unable to extract

  The File is in use or some other error occurred.

  Please stop all Cygwin processes and select "Retry", or select
  "Continue" to go on anyway (the file will be updated after a reboot).

and a similar message about the misc fonts.

- Reboot did not help
- After uninstalling the packages, creating the directory
  /etc/X11/fontpath.d and installing them again, there are still
  fonts missing, e.g.

% xterm
Warning: Cannot convert string "-adobe-helvetica-bold-r-normal--*-120-*-*-*-*-iso8859-*" to type FontStruct
Warning: Missing charsets in String to FontSet conversion
Warning: Unable to load any usable fontset


The following packages have been uploaded to the Cygwin distribution:

* adobe-source-code-pro-fonts-1.017-2

* xorg-x11-fonts-dpi75-7.5-1
* xorg-x11-fonts-misc-7.5-1
* xorg-x11-fonts-Type1-7.5-1

These packages have been renamed and reorganized for the new font layout
used by xorg-server-1.17.2-4, xfs-1.1.4-1, and tigervnc-server-1.5.0-1.
X11 core fonts are installed into /usr/share/X11/fonts with the
necessary symlinks into the X11 font catalogue.  Other fonts are
installed in their own directories under /usr/share/fonts, along with
configuration files in the requisite locations, for use with fontconfig.
