Re: Installing XFSTT on HAMM

The xfstt package that comes with hamm is very minimalistic in terms of
documentation and user setup.  You might be better off installing the
more up-to-date package in slink, which more-or-less takes care of
everything for you.  Anyway, here's a brief description of what you need
to do:

1.  Put all your .ttf fonts into /var/ttfonts.
2.  Create an xfstt startup script in /etc/init.d and corresponding
symlinks in /etc/rc?.d.
3.  Edit your /etc/X11/XF86Config so that it has 'FontPath "unix/:7100"'
in Section "Files".

The hardest part is step 2, but the latest package in slink should take
care of that for you.

Good luck!
