PRB: Error Message "Cannot open SOFTIMAGE font"

Last reviewed: June 20, 1997
Article ID: Q170183

The information in this article applies to:

  • Softimage 3D for IRIX, versions 3.51, 3.7

SYMPTOMS

After installing SOFTIMAGE 3D, when you try to start it, the following error message appears:

   "Cannot open SOFTIMAGE font (invalid argument)
   Cannot open SOFTIMAGE font (no such file directory)"

CAUSE

This message is issued at start-up time when system fonts are not found, or if you do not have the permissions to read them.

The environment variable SI_LOCATION, which is set in the .softimage file, may not be pointing to the correct location (default is /usr/softimage).

RESOLUTION

Check if, under $SI_LOCATION/3D/rsrc, you have access to the following fonts:

   Softimage.fnt
   Softimage15.fnt
   Softlogo.fnt

Make sure that the environment variable, SI_LOCATION, is pointing to the correct location (default is /usr/softimage). To see where it is pointing, in a shell type: echo $SI_LOCATION.
