Thanks for keeping the 'Beautifying fonts for LCD's in X' up to date. Misfit138 14:25, 23 April 2008 (EDT)


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. Synss 03:45, 17 April 2009 (EDT)

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)

Revision criteria

fc-cache: root vs regular

Template:Codeline 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).

  1. fc-cache also updates both, but it is not needed in this situation. manolo 20:23, 14 November 2009 (EST)
