Missing konsole "Linux" font
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
I've been using a self compiled version ok KDE-3.1 Beta. Today I've
instaled the "sid" packages for KDE-3.1 from Ralf (great job!) and then
the "Linux" font for Konsole has changed from the old hanitual to
another bigger and uglier (also monospaced, but not the nice old "Linux
", VGA like font). I've installed xfonts-konsole but nothing has
Also, In the custom font selection list I don't see any "Console" font
name (I think that was the name for the "Linux" font).
Yesterday I "dist-upgraded" my system and I saw that the new fontconfig
version told this:
default renderer has been changed
Now the default renderer has been changed to Xft2, and your font
configuration depends on a fontconfig configuration file
I've been looking into it and I have noticed that the "fonts.cache-1"
file (generated by fontconfig) in "/usr/share/fonts" (where the
"9x15.pcf.gz", "console8x16.pcf.gz" and "console8x8.pcf.gz" files with
the "Linux" font reside) doesn't have any reference to these fonts, it
just have these references to subdirectories:
"afms" 0 ".dir"
"type1" 0 ".dir"
"truetype" 0 ".dir"
I've tried to regenerate these files after installing xfonts-konsole
with "dpkg-reconfigure -plow fontconfig" but the result is the same.
I'm not sure if this is related to the problem, but I'd love to see back
the good old "Linux" font to konsole. Any hint is appreciated.
