Wow, kdebase-2.2, that is /really/ old! =:^) Thanks. I actually have the (two, 8x16, 8x8) fonts available, here, but they're simply orphaned files. If I'm to create an ebuild for it, finding a publicly available tarball to use for SRC_URI was essential. And a kde2 era tarball is likely smaller than a kde3 era tarball. Grabbing the whole kdebase tarball for two little files seems rather a waste, but might as well make that waste as little as possible! =:^P But I don't know if I'd have thought to go back to kde2 without your post. -- Duncan - List replies preferred.
