Subject: [gentoo-dev] XFree 4.3.0 and XftConfig
Date: Thu, 08 May 2003 21:43:22
Message-Id: b9ehog$afo$
1 I think that the /etc/X11/XftConfig configuration file is
2 completely ignored by XFree version 4.3.0 and above.
4 According to the documentation on the Xft library
5 shipped with this version of XFree uses fontconfig. Fontconfig
6 is configured in the /etc/fonts/fonts.conf file.
8 My changes to XftConfig had no effect. Only changes to fonts.conf
9 are effective. Can anyone confirm that ?
11 In case the XftConfig file is not used for anything anymore then
12 the XFree ebuild should be modified to install the file as
13 XftConfig.obsolete or something like that. Existence of the file
14 is very confusing to the user who is trying to configure fonts.
16 I am going to report this problem to the maintainers of the
17 XFree ebuild in case no one points out something I missed.
19 Thanks.
