Overriding (or getting rid of) Helvetica
I am at a loss.
My systems in X look great. Anti-aliasing works, I have True Type
fonts installed and I am generally happy until some idiot Web page
author specifies Helvetica instead of the generic sans-serif for a
display font. I've added the following to ~/.fonts.conf:
<-- Use Arial in preference to Helvetica -->
<test qual="any" name="family">
<edit name="family" mode="assign">
Which, I now find, was overwritten by some other process. Grrrrrr....
How do I easily remap the UGLY Helvetica to the more pleasing Arial I
have already installed. This affects both Firefox and Konqueror
equally so I assume the answer is somewhere in the font subsystem which
seems somewhat like a Hydra.
I am running KDE on both current Sid and Etch and I'm seeing the same
effect on each.
