Thanks for keeping the 'Beautifying fonts for LCD's in X' up to date. [[User:Misfit138|Misfit138]] 14:25, 23 April 2008 (EDT)
== Merge ==
I am not sure the pages need merging, I would rather see this page for installing fonts and [[Xorg_Font_Configuration]] for everything beautification, LCD, etc.
More a clearer separation than a real merge.

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

===fc-cache: root vs regular===
{{Codeline|$ fc-cache}} makes files in ~/.fontconfig. If you run fc-cache -v as root, you'll notice that it skips the possibly non existant /root/.fontconfig.
That dir is used to cache fonts by X on a per user basis. Those files override the cache made by system-wide fc-cache (/var/cache/fontconfig). [[User:Manolo|manolo]] 20:23, 14 November 2009 (EST)
