Description Julien Allanos (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-01-04 09:51:07 UTC
The file /etc/fonts/fonts.conf contains the <dir>/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/Type1</dir> statements twice, making the second redundant. I suggest replacing the second one by <dir>/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/TTF</dir>, as Xfree installs Luxi truetype fonts in this directory.

we need a fonts herd
Comment 2 Donnie Berkholz (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-01-04 10:47:47 UTC
Seemant: I'm on the verge of making one, since nobody responded to my email about it (to -dev, I believe) a week ago or so with any issues.
Comment 3 foser (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-01-04 11:11:59 UTC
luxi ttf fonts are badly hinted, the whole idea is not add them by default.

This could be resolved in a cleaner way when the seperation of the xfree fonts is completed, but for now WONTFIX.

& yeah create a fonts herd :)
