Re: X11R7 and what this transition means for you



Hi all!

Could you please explain me what is the right place where to put .scale
files?

So I let the package depend on debhelper >= 5.0.31, but:
	/etc/X11/fonts/Type1/foo.scale
or
	/etc/X11/fonts/X11R7/Type1/foo.scale
?

I would say that the former (the old location) would make more sense,
since it does not really help to have the additional X11R7 in the
/e/X/f/ hierachy. 

Best wishes
