Fonts are a big concern for Debian, IMHO
I write to debian-kde as I am subscribed to it since a long time and I think
that kde users are more interested in this subject that others.
Please, tell me if I am wrong.
I read today that Microsoft doesn't offer any more its ttf for free.
So I deinstalled the "mssttcorefonts" package.
Now I am back to the situation where I was some months ago: ugly fonts.
The small firm where I work doesn't need super extra fonts but good looking
scalable helvetica (arial), times, courier fonts and nothing else.
Anti aliasing for this three fonts would be a plus...
These are rather basic needs, I think.
And I think that XFree86, kde, defoma structure and so on should provide them
out of the box.
Is it so hard to obtain?
I can I hack XF86Config-4, XftConfig, /usr/share/fonts and so on to obtain
this result? Someone else did it already?
Thank you very much for your daily help.
