Re: Konsole & AA fonts

No objections from me. :)  But like Tim, I think it would be good to provide 
documentation for the non-debian-kde reader for how to get konsole working 

One suggestion might be to put the information in 
/usr/share/doc/konsole/README.AAfonts or some such file.  I can try to draw 
up such a file over the weekend if you want.  I don't know what the protocol 
is (the problem is serious enough that if konsole with QT_XFT=1 cannot find 
fixed-width fonts it becomes essentially unusable) - do we want to notify the 
user on installation (a preinst popup like with xfs/xdm/etc?) that these 
instructions exist?

I think half the problem here is that X cannot provide a good default 
XftConfig since it depends on what Type1/TT fonts you have installed, and 
there's no guarantee that any two users have any two such fonts in common.

Anyway.  I promised I'd go help at a yard sale. :)
