Docker + Addons - cannot generate PDF using cfhtmltopdf using Docker

I'm trying to get ColdFusion 2018 running using the official Adobe Docker images.  In the past we've used the CommandBox images with great success but this app is using cfhtmltopdf and I need the PDF server.

I have built a docker-compose:
https://gist.github.com/jimpriest/fbf64333531f6d36030aa4ab0f6424f0

I'm using a Dockerfile in order to install Commandbox and CFConfig to restore my server settings.

This runs, my app fires up.  I can open CFAdmin and confirm the connection in the PDF Service tab (I get an "OK").

But when trying to generate a PDF I get a vague error:
ServiceManagerConversionException: Error occurred while generating PDF

This same code works fine on a normal ColdFusion 2018 install so I am going to assume this is not a code issue.

This page (https://helpx.adobe.com/coldfusion/pdf-generation-in-coldfusion.html) mentions needing to install some imb-type-1 fonts in Linux (which is what the Docker container is using) and if I shell into both the ColdFusion container and the Add ons I only see a 'truetype' folder in the /usr/share/fonts folder.  

I even tried copying these files over but still get an error. 

How can I troubleshoot this issue?  Has anyone gotten this to work?
