musescore sttop with 'Mscore: fatal error: cannot load internal font' on openSuse 12.3 linux

• May 20, 2013 - 19:27

Since an update of packages (I think less then 3 weeks ago), mscore stopped working. If started from the command line, It complains:
Mscore: fatal error: cannot load internal font
It seems to disagree with the version of some of the dynamic libraries. But which one? And what version should I have?

My musescore is MuseScore:
Music Score Editor; Version 1.3; Build 5702
Installed from musescore-1.3-7.18.src.rpm

How do you know? Do you have more output that just the internal font error?

In reply to by Nicolas

Summary: my assumprtion is that I have an incompatible version of the library than contains the QFontDatabase::addApplicationFont routine.

If I start mscore without any argument, I get

$ mscore
Mscore: fatal error: cannot load internal font

I peeked in the source code and found the fatal error comes from the following lines:

      if (-1 == QFontDatabase::addApplicationFont(":/fonts/mscore-20.ttf")) {
            fprintf(stderr, "Mscore: fatal error: cannot load internal font\n");
            if (!debugMode)
                  exit(-1);
            }

(This also explains why it more or less works with the -d option.)

With the -d option, it says

$ mscore -d
