Im having trouble getting the font files to open. I set them as chmod777, used the complete path, etc and still no luck. Any ideas?

Fixed it:

To test your package I set the path_to_fonts to ''
and used realpath("fontname.ttf") to get the full path

I had the same trouble but found if I copied the '.ttf' fonts from a windows machine to the '/etc/fonts/' directory and then used that as the path it worked OK.

Had a small problem with the case ... windows not 'case-sensitive' Ubuntu was 'case-sensitive'. Couldn't find 'times.TTF' but found 'times.ttf' no bother. :-)

Don't know what the legalities are doing this but there are plenty of places on the web where you can download free fonts to use.

Hope this is of some help.

I had to modify the graph.php class and change the ARIALBD.TTF and ARIAL.TTF to lowercase. Worked fined after that.
