Re: shared font directory and font installation



This shall be used in the same manner as /usr/share/fonts save that architecture
specific fonts shall be stored. Architecture neutral fonts must not go into

Search Order

Compliant font libraries should search both archives for fonts. The search order
is library speciic.


Some font systems perform faster with native formatted copies of a font so
it is desirable to use those in preference. Other font systems see no benefit
and those benefit from /usr/share being used first to get the same precise
revision as other machines on a network

Finally some font systems have versioning rules of their own.
