Thoughts on merging with Fonts page

If the decision to merge is made, then it would be very helpful to leave a reference either here pointing to the "Fonts" page and/or on the Fonts page pointing here so anyone who uses this page as a reference for the font information can easily find it. Just a simple title and then something like "The Xorg Font Configuration Page" was merged with the "Fonts" page, now available at http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Fonts.

For the combined title, 'Fonts' works, but it could also be something like 'Fonts & Xorg Font Configuration'.

This page is about configuration, Fonts is about adding fonts. Lists go over there, troubleshooting goes here. I did this because otherwise it'd be a behemoth of an article. manolo 12:24, 11 November 2009 (EST)

xtt

The word "xtt" is used at the beginning but not defined. I must admit that I'm unfamiliar with it. - KitchM 10:29, 23 August 2009 (EDT)

New font option

With the new structure I made a file for /etc/fonts/conf.avail:

File: 11-no-anti-aliasing.conf                                               
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE fontconfig SYSTEM "fonts.dtd">
<fontconfig>
    <match target="pattern">
            <edit name="antialias" mode="assign"><bool>false</bool></edit>
    </match>
</fontconfig>

Which you have to symlink to /etc/fonts/conf.d
