Hi,

I just tried to use the scalebar executable (from 7.0.0 Github release - after compilation) but I get this error message : msGetFontFace(): General error message. Freetype was unable to load font file when I try to generate a scalebar image.

I have no problem with shp2img and legend executables with the same MapFile and the same font. I tried several fonts and get the error message everytime.

EDIT: I switched back to 6.4.1 and the scalebar executable works just fine.

Hi,

My mapfile is the following one :

MAP

The osm-google.map included is the mapfile generated by https://github.com/mapserver/basemaps for OpenStreetMap (edited to be included in test.map) :

The fonts.lst list file is the default font list generated by https://github.com/mapserver/basemaps for OpenStreetMap :

unifont fonts/unifont.ttf
arialuni fonts/arialuni.ttf
#sc fonts/ARIALUNI.TTF
#scb fonts/ARIALUNI.TTF
#sc fonts/Everson-Mono.ttf
#scb fonts/Everson-Mono.ttf
#sc fonts/TITUSCBZ.TTF
#scb fonts/TITUSCBZ.TTF
sc fonts/DejaVuSansCondensed.ttf
scb fonts/DejaVuSansCondensed-Bold.ttf
khmer fonts/KhmerOS.ttf
jp fonts/ipag.ttf
#sc fonts/Cyberbit.ttf
#scb fonts/Cyberbit.ttf

I kept the directory structure generated by https://github.com/mapserver/basemaps (fonts.lst is in a fonts directory next to osm-google.map.

Thanks for your help.
