Saw your almost-complete re-write here and on the Fonts page. Very nice work Manolo.

Suggestions for edits to this page.

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

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)


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">
    <match target="pattern">
            <edit name="antialias" mode="assign"><bool>false</bool></edit>

Which you have to symlink to /etc/fonts/conf.d
It works brilliantly. Gilneas 01:03, 26 October 2006 (PDT)Gilneas
