This message basically means that XEP cannot find file etc/fonts.xml
in XEP's home directory. Unless java system property com.renderx.xep.ROOT
is set to the name of the directory where XEP resides, there is no
way for XEP to find itself.

The property can be set

1) via -D command line option of com.renderx.xep.Driver

java com.renderx.xep.Driver -DROOT=/place/where/XEP/resides

2) via -D command line option of java

java -Dcom.renderx.xep.ROOT=/place/where/XEP/resides com.renderx.xep.Driver

3) via a System.setProperty call, if you are a user with access to Java API

Hope this helps,
David Tolpin
