:I just added a link to [[KEYMAP]] under the related articles section.
The topic is probably a common search item for users. I think it could easily stand on its own, just for that reason, even before my additions.   --[[User:Thisoldman|Thisoldman]] 13:01, 22 November 2009 (EST)

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.

:You seem to be correct. I have removed it from the list. It would be nice to see a package get put in the AUR or for the font to get added to the package. I see that {{AUR|ttf-liberation1}} exists in the AUR. Maybe that package has it?

:In any case, I'm closing this now.
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)

==Simplify ''Font packages'' markup==
+
Is there a reason for the horizontal rule beneath each heading in the '''Font packages''' section? This seems like a pointless stylistic addition; the headings alone provide enough separation, in my opinion.

===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).
+
 
+
<nowiki>#</nowiki> fc-cache also updates both, but it is not needed in this situation. [[User:Manolo|manolo]] 20:23, 14 November 2009 (EST)

=== Asian heading removal ===
+
Not all Asian fonts were under this heading. Tamil was, Khmer wasn't. Are Arabic and Hebrew Asian? Categories easily become political, as the Unicode ''Han controversy'' shows. Unicode groups the CJKV fonts together, so I presume we can too.  --[[User:Thisoldman|Thisoldman]] 18:35, 15 November 2009 (EST)

Revision as of 00:36, 5 March 2013

keymap modification needed?

There should be a reference to KEYMAP on this page?
-- Doru001 (talk) 10:05, 4 March 2013 (UTC)

I just added a link to KEYMAP under the related articles section.

ttf-liberation package

The article refers to the ttf-liberation package for the Liberation Sans Narrow font. But Liberation Sans Narrow is not included in the package.
-- DonJaime (talk) 12:01, 7 February 2013 (UTC)

You seem to be correct. I have removed it from the list. It would be nice to see a package get put in the AUR or for the font to get added to the package. I see that ttf-liberation1AUR exists in the AUR. Maybe that package has it?
In any case, I'm closing this now.
