Using Fonts in X-Window System
------------------------------
By Anuradha Ratnaweera

Copy all your fonts to a suitable location, typically to
/usr/local/share/fonts.

    mkdir -p /usr/local/share/fonts
    cp lklug.ttf /usr/local/share/fonts/

X Window System uses two different font systems and the
fonts have to be added to both of them.

XFT
---

This is the new system

* If you have /etc/fonts/fonts.conf, check if the line

    <dir>/usr/local/share/fonts</dir>

  exits in the file.  If so, you are done. 

  Otherwise, if you have /etc/fonts/local.conf, add the line

    <dir>/usr/local/share/fonts</dir>

  If local.conf is not there, add it to /etc/fonts/fonts.conf.

* See if the font is in X by running

    fc-list

  and grepping for the relevent font (may be with an -i)

* If the font is not found, try running

    fc-cache -v -f

  as root.

* You do NOT have to restart X (good news).

X core
------

* Create fonts.scale and fonts.dir files

    cd /usr/local/share/fonts/
    /usr/bin/X11/mkfontscale
    /usr/bin/X11/mkfontdir

  (If you are running and old XFree86 version, mkfontscale may
  not be available.  Just grab the mkfontscale.c file from
  one of the cvsweb sites and compile it with cc.  However, OTF
  files may not be recognized by old XFree86 systems.)

* If you are using a font server, add /usr/local/share/fonts to
  "catalogue" variable in /etc/X11/fs/config, and restart font server.

    /etc/init.d/xfs restart

* If you are NOT using a font server, add the line

    FontPath  "/usr/local/fonts"

  to the "Files" section in /etc/X11/xorg.conf (if you are using a
  X server from x.org), or /etc/X11/XF86Config or /etc/X11/XF86Config-4
  (if you are using a xfree86 X server).

  Also make sure that the line

    Load      "freetype"

  is there in the "Module" section.  If not add the line.

  Now restart X.

* See if the font is available by running

    xlsfonts

  and grepping for the font name (probably with an -i).
