bear with me...
I'm using a script (logo.php) to draw a simple logo -- basically text
with a shaded background. It looks great when I browse it at localhost
(a Fedora Core 3 box), but if I use another machine (Gentoo) on the
network, it says
"The image ...logo.php cannot be displayed, because it contains errors"
I can only get (part of) it to show by commenting out:
$pos = imagettftext($image,30,0,$x,$y,$shadow,$font, "NAME_OF_THE_SITE");
in all three places where it occurs. also involved are:
$font = FONT_PATH. "CopperplateGothicBold.ttf";
does that need to be installed (in that dir) on every machine that
accesses the image?!?!
