Description SchAmane 2007-09-09 14:58:23 UTC
Actually all xorg-server ebuilds have media-fonts/font-adobe-75dpi in dependses.

Better way is to set unicode font as default setting for empty xorg configuration.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:

See Bug 121505. Won't be removed.

I think it may be possible to say user (after merge xorg), that he must install fonts what he likes and give him list of font packages.
Comment 3 Dmitriy Turovec 2007-09-09 15:17:26 UTC
Also, other fonts, including font-bh-type1 and ttf-bitstream-vera, have a very narrow coverage of national symbols, and this causes big problems on non-english systems (especially not latin-baseg languages). would you please include sth else, like DejaVu fonts or Terminus, or sth else, with wider character set support?
Comment 4 Jakub Moc (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-09-09 16:30:58 UTC
emerge whatever font you want; the basic standard fonts are expected to be installed with xorg-server.
Comment 5 bobrik 2007-09-10 13:50:39 UTC
They are UGLY! I must delete it to see sites in FF/Konqueror with nice TTF fonts with antialias. It`s better to use Terminus, IMHO.

Please, move this out of bugzilla. Whether or not some font is ugly is totally irrelevant here. Thanks.
