Package: ttf-vlgothic
Version: 20081203-1
Severity: normal


If not set $DISPLAY variable or not running X server,
ttf-vlgothic is unable to install.

Setting up ttf-vlgothic (20081203-1) ...
xset:  unable to open display ""
dpkg: error processing ttf-vlgothic (--configure):
 subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 1
Errors were encountered while processing:

it is caused by prerm/postinst scripts.

# update font cache
        if [ -x /usr/bin/fc-cache ]; then
          fc-cache update
        if [ -x /usr/bin/xset ]; then
          xset fp rehash

I think echo some message is better than do xset.
