    error while creating pdf using pandoc

    I am trying to make pdf from github.com/progit,
    get following error:
    Code:
    en:
            Parsing markdown... done
            Creating main.tex for en... done
            Running XeTeX:
                    Pass 1... failed with:
                            ! I can't find file `Helvetica'.
            Consider running this again with --debug.
    do I need to install extra fonts ?
    Tried even with latest pandoc from SID.

    Use existing fonts

    You should read the page I can't find file `Helvetica'

    If you use the Knoppix 7.2.0 DVD you can try the following commands in an LXTerminal.
    Code:
    mkdir -p /home/knoppix/git
    cd /home/knoppix/git
    GIT_SSL_NO_VERIFY=true git clone https://github.com/progit/progit.git
    cd progit
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install -t unstable pandoc
    sudo apt-get install ruby-rdiscount rubygems calibre
    leafpad latex/config.yml
    Use existing fonts:
    Code:
    font: TeXGyreHeros Regular
    bold: TeXGyreHeros Bold
    mono: DejaVuSansMono
    Save the file and exit leafpad. Now you should be ready to create the PDF file.
    Code:
    ./makepdfs en
    Of course, you can use other fonts, but they must be installed on your system.

    Thanks, that helped.
    I should have checked progit/issues,
    but then would have got stuck in figuring out the right config
