[reportlab-users] 2 pbs : TrueType difficulties and transparency setting

Hi there,

I'm running a python 2.4, debian box, PIL, freetype2, and reportlab 
installed OK from source.

1/ TT

TT Fonts are in dirs declared in rl_config.py

tried to run renderPM like a test of testshapes.py
I understood renderPM checks _renderPM.do for ft_get_face to run test13 
demonstrating TT usage.
I can't manage to have this test run.

2/ transparency

still in the testshapes series, I can't manage to have a gif or png with 
transparent background. I read mail archives about setting a transparent 
 entry in the pil_config dictionnary, but it didn't help.

any help, idea, pointer to more ressource is very welcome
