Re: Installing fonts
Followed your recommendation but this seems to be mostly about
font-rendering choices. I saw that it did regenerate fontconfig's font
cache but where it went looking for fonts is unclear. For instance if I
had copied the MS fonts to ~/msfonts.. how would it have found them..?
And where does the famed debian font manager - aka defoma.. come into

I copied over the win98 fonts to /usr/local/share/fonts/truetype/win98
.. did the usual $ mkfontscale; mkfontdir.. added the directory in
/etc/X11/XF86config-4.. added it likewise to /etc/fonts/local.conf.. and
did and $ fc-list to verify all this magic had worked.. and now I'm
getting somewhat weird output with funky non-printables.. like so:
do dpkg-reconfigure fontconfig. It will config allfonts. whenever you
add fonts do this.

Anyway, everything seems to be working no different than before I did
the "dpkg-reconfigure fontconfig" ... down to the output of fc-list..
still spits out the same unprintable garbage.
