[pkg-wine-party] Bug#814844: wine: fonts-wine fonts are not found.

Package: wine
Version: 1.8.1-2
Severity: normal


the fonts-wine fonts are still not found. I removed /usr/share/fonts and
tested in winefile.

It works as soon as I copy or link the fonts folder to

Same for wine-development. It works if I link the fonts folder to

So it seems that independently of what is specified for fontdir in the
Makefile, Wine expects fonts to be in ${datadir}/wine/fonts.
DATDIR=usr/share/wine$(VERSION) is set in debian/rules.

btw: Between Wine 1.6 and 1.8 there were at least 9 commits related to
fonts. So they are not totally static. That's just another data point
for the fonts-wine(-development) deduplication - not sure if this
warrants the duplication that we had before and which route we should
take to solve these 2 issues.
