Re: Debian Font Guide for Newbies and the Confused
I just did a clean reinstall of SID (I keep a local mirror and have it
scripted down to 30 minutes :-)).
My /var/lib/defoma/x-ttcidfont-conf.d/dirs/TrueType/fonts.alias is
an empty file.
Here's the the contents of that directory:
# ls /var/lib/defoma/x-ttcidfont-conf.d/dirs/TrueType/
fonts.alias fonts.scale VeraIt.ttf VeraMoIt.ttf VeraSe.ttf
fonts.cache-1 VeraBd.ttf VeraMoBd.ttf VeraMono.ttf Vera.ttf
fonts.dir VeraBI.ttf VeraMoBI.ttf VeraSeBd.ttf
I had been running mkfontalias.py which created "480 aliases".
I noticed I set GTK1 font to Vera-8 and fonts looked "different"
(bigger) in gbuffy.
Why is fonts.alias empty? IMHO they looked better before.
