problem with defoma and non-GTK/KDE apps
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
I have a very strange problem: normally I have the path for defoma
(/var/lib/defoma/x-ttcidfont-conf.d/dirs/TrueType) in my XF86Config-4 and
GTK/KDE apps work well.
However, simple x-apps which don't use these libraries wont start but
complain they cannot find any suitable font.
I'm running unstable and my locale is set to en_US.UTF-8. I want to use
ISO10646-1 fonts with my x-apps. Examples where this problem occurs are
xfontsel and xcin (cvs version, which works with UTF8 locales).
When I take the defoma paths out of my X config file and make the
fonts.scale and fonts.dir files manually in /usr/lib/X11/fonts/TrueType and
link the truetype fonts from /usr/share/fonts/truetype to that directory,
everything works fine.
So, I suspect defoma to be the culprit. Can someone confirm this problem?
