Using defoma shouldn't require manual editing of XF86Config-4. FontPath "/var/lib/defoma/x-ttcidfont-conf.d/dirs/CID" FontPath "/var/lib/defoma/x-ttcidfont-conf.d/dirs/TrueType" In fact, I'd vote for adding those two FontPath lines in any case, wether x-ttcidfont-conf is installed or not. XF86 will ignore the font directory when it isn't readable (yes, there's a warning, but that shouldn't scare anyone). Users are likely to install x-ttcidfont-conf later on anyway, when they find out that some classical X apps don't offer all installed TT fonts. We're saving them at least one step (reconfiguring X or manually editing XF86Config-4) when the FontPath line is already in place and working. As an added bonus, one could remove the unfortunate Debconf warning from x-ttcidfont-conf which tells users how to modify their XF86Config-4. (Or rather, fails to tell the users. Judging from reports on debian-user, quite a few don't understand what they're supposed to do.) -- Best Regards, | This signature is currently under construction. Sebastian | Please check back later!
