When does Ghostscript run in cron?
 
Occasionally the Moodle cron script produces some error messages such as:

GPL Ghostscript 9.18: Some glyphs of the font FXCFIE+TimesNewRomanPSMT requires a patented True Type interpreter.

Ghostscript produces this message when trying to interpret certain PDF files.

I'm trying to find out if this is something I should worry about, so my question is: What causes the cron script to execute Ghostscript?


(I'm using Moodle 3.1.1.)

In core Moodle anyway... the only place I can find is the 'convert_submissions' task belonging to Assignments 'editpdf' feedback plugin. It runs every 15 minutes by default.

Did you ever figure out what was causing these errors to show up? I get reports of errors emailed to me from the cron job and I can't figure out how to get this one to go away. 


Thanks!

No, I didn't. The problem just went away by itself.

Computer science is quite closely related to magic, you know. smile

I keep hoping it just disappears, but so far no luck on this one. Thanks for the response though. 


I'll be hoping for some magic. smile
