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)

Bitmap fonts

fontconfig (2.8.0-1) does not disable bitmap fonts by default. It does not place the 70-no-bitmaps.conf softlink that the Font Configuration#Enable section suggests removing. Time 21:25, 5 December 2009 (EST)

Was wondering about this. Yep, gonna need a fix.

Softlinks

They shouldn't be done in relation to Template:Filename; i.e., Template:Codeline. These are dangerous when cleaning a chroot, or deleting a mounted file-system in general. Time 21:31, 5 December 2009 (EST)

And the seemingly superfluous Template:Codeline is added for ease of use with auto-complete. Time 21:36, 5 December 2009 (EST)

Comments

LlamaZorz, when making edits please consider other users. This section is about installing, not about special considerations for those that use the Gnome desktop. A couple things too about your edit: not everybody's monitor is 96 DPI, not everyone's screen is of type RGB, hintslight is usually preferable but not always. All three of these have already been mentioned in the article. Please read the entire article before adding content to help save on repetative content.

I cant see how that really matters, Ubuntu gives those settings no matter what the computer or monitor used. The point of the patch was to get fonts in Arch to look like that of Ubuntu. If you don't choose the settings I provided then you will never get fonts that look like that in Ubuntu. I am simply trying to fill in gaps in your documentation, which their are many and I mean many. Just because you mention a topic on one section, doesn't imply that you cant qualify it in another place. I stand by my submission. I am going to resubmit it. LlamaZorz
