Re: Different font behavior between kernel and front-end

Hi,

the kernel *need* the FrontEnd to render the Mathematica fonts,
because the font metric (i.e. the width of the glyphs) is only
known by the FrontEnd -- the Kernel never read the metric files
and don't know the size of the glyphs and can't place the glyphs
without the FrontEnd.
You must launch the FrontEnd form the kernel like webMathematica
does.

Regards
  Jens

| Hi Group
|
| I have the following problem, with a plot that 
contains greek letters
| in labels.
|
| If I use the front-end interface, everything is 
OK and I can export the
| plot to PNG or EPS, the latter files show the 
correct greek letters.
|
| If I use the same code in a .m package and I run 
the kernel
| command-line, then both PNG and EPS files do not 
understand greek
| letters, that are replaced by, e.g., \[Rho]
|
| What is happening here ?
|
| Thanks a lot.
