Thanks for the reply

The metrics file is not present in root. I had truncated the path for the
forums.

I made the change of removing the metric file. I got the following error

[2008-12-02 14:07:23,467] [pool-1-thread-1] ERROR LazyFont - Failed to read

The new Config file is
   <font embed-url="/usr/openwin/lib/X11/fonts/TrueType/Arial.ttf">
          <font-triplet name="Arial" style="normal" weight="normal"/>
          <font-triplet name="ArialMT" style="normal" weight="normal"/>
          <font-triplet name="arial" style="normal" weight="normal"/>
        </font>

If I use the auto-detect option only (commenting other details) I get the
following warning. PDF gets printed but the Font is Times.

[2008-12-02 14:12:58,331] [pool-1-thread-3] WARN  FontInfo - Font
'Arial,normal,400' not found. Substituting with 'any,normal,400'.

Thanks for the help
