Questions about Cygwin packages should always be sent to the Cygwin mailing list, not to individual maintainers. Thanks.

believe I've found an issue in Cygwin associated with the urw-base35-fonts package and I've found an email suggesting that you are the maintainer.

I found the same problem as mentioned in this post <https://cygwin.com/ml/cygwin/2018-01/msg00135.html>: xmgrace fails on cygwin64.

Some detail: xmgrace uses the type 1 fonts in /usr/share/ghostscript/fonts. It appears to access them using a font mapping contained in one of its configuration files, named appropriately enough, FontDataBase. It contains this:

14
Times-Roman             Times-Roman             n021003l.pfb
Times-Italic            Times-Italic            n021023l.pfb
Times-Bold              Times-Bold              n021004l.pfb
Times-BoldItalic        Times-BoldItalic        n021024l.pfb
Helvetica               Helvetica               n019003l.pfb
Helvetica-Oblique       Helvetica-Oblique       n019023l.pfb
Helvetica-Bold          Helvetica-Bold          n019004l.pfb
Helvetica-BoldOblique   Helvetica-BoldOblique   n019024l.pfb
Courier                 Courier                 n022003l.pfb
Courier-Oblique         Courier-Oblique         n022023l.pfb
Courier-Bold            Courier-Bold            n022004l.pfb
Courier-BoldOblique     Courier-BoldOblique     n022024l.pfb
Symbol                  Symbol                  s050000l.pfb
ZapfDingbats            ZapfDingbats            d050000l.pfb

These font files - the files listed in the last column of this file - seem to belong in the urw-base35-fonts package, indeed this package search <https://cygwin.com/cgi-bin2/package-cat.cgi?file=x86_64%2Furw-base35-fonts%2Furw-base35-fonts-20170801-2&grep=n021003l> finds them there. However they aren't there anymore. I'm guessing they have been renamed? Does this sound correct? Using find to look for the files, I can't find them anywhere...

Those type 1 fonts are now in the following files in /usr/share/fonts/urw-base35/:

NimbusRoman-Regular.t1
NimbusRoman-Italic.t1
NimbusRoman-Bold.t1
NimbusRoman-BoldItalic.t1
NimbusSans-Regular.t1
NimbusSans-Italic.t1
NimbusSans-Bold.t1
NimbusSans-BoldItalic.t1
NimbusMonoPS-Regular.t1
NimbusMonoPS-Italic.t1
NimbusMonoPS-Bold.t1
NimbusMonoPS-BoldItalic.t1
StandardSymbolsPS.t1
D050000L.t1
