I had a problem where one of the jasper reports loaded onto a docker image based on Debian Jessie was not running.
It was throwing this error, “font arial not available to jvm”
Add the following mirror to the sources.list file:
root@host:/usr/local/# cat /etc/apt/sources.list deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian jessie main contrib
Then do apt-get update and then install the ttf-mscorefonts-installer package:
root@host:/usr/local/# apt-get update root@host:/usr/local/# apt-get install ttf-mscorefonts-installer
Then restart the docker image.
