text() generates warning in command line invocation

boxcarmib
Looking for some help… have an OpenSCAD  (2018.03.17) program that works fine on my Mac but when I call it through the command line it generates the following warning:

Fontconfig warning: line 144: blank doesn't take any effect anymore. please remove it from your fonts.conf

And then the Activity monitor reports that OpenSCAD continues to grind away at ~95% CPU usage, but doesn’t ever finish.
Any thoughts?

Hugo,

Do you mind sharing the command line you are using in terminal?

I would like to try it on my MacBook pro running OS X 10.13.6 to see if I get the same result.

Re: text() generates warning in command line invocation

I reduced the program down to a few lines which is this…

textmsg = "test";

module text_hang() {
rotate([0,90,0])
linear_extrude(12)
text(text = textmsg, size = 10, halign = "center");
}

text_hang();


And it is invoked with…

/Applications/OpenSCAD.app/Contents/MacOS/OpenSCAD -o ~/Documents/OpenSCAD/test_hang.stl ~/Documents/OpenSCAD/test_hang.scad

I have determined that the program DOES finish running… eventually… somewhat non-intuitively (to me anyway) the program just takes a lot longer to execute in command line mode that program mode… so what do I know.
So I guess I’m really just reporting on the warning message.

Later versions of the GUI do the Font update EVERY time you run it, which
'can take up to a couple of minutes', perhaps that is also happening via
command line?
