"Times New Roman" and "Times-Roman" are both mapped to "[internal times]" according to $ dot -v infile.dot -T png -o outfile.png
$ fc-match "Times New Roman" times.ttf: "Times New Roman" "Normal"
$ fc-match Times-Roman timR12.pcf.gz: "Times" "Regular"
As far as I can tell, fontconfig can find fonts for these font specifications. dot seems to be *ignoring* them.
I have observed this with graphviz 2.8 and 2.12. 2.6 is the last version of graphviz I have seen work under gentoo.
// this is the same example as #1087. Copied directly, in fact.
This is evidently the same problem described in #1087. #1087 is marked 'fixed', despite, AFAICT, nothing having been done and the *font found by fontconfig* *not being used*.
I'm pretty sure 'update fontconfig' is not the answer. fontconfig
is finding the font files just fine.
