Description Bill Nottingham 2004-03-17 17:47:10 EST
I select 'LucidaTypewriter-10' in gnome-terminal, and I get something
that is *not* LucidaTypewriter.

Not sure what it is, but it's proportional :) , and it also looks
to be !bitmap.
Comment 1 Mike A. Harris 2004-03-18 12:18:12 EST
gnome-terminal is using fontconfig/Xft I believe.

Owen, has fonts.conf changed recently, or have there been any other
font related changes you're aware of?
Comment 2 Mike A. Harris 2004-03-18 14:58:38 EST
I believe I've found the cause of this problem.  It seems to be
a bug in Xft 2.1.5:

Comment 4 Alexander Larsson 2004-03-19 08:06:51 EST
Is this still happening. That sounds pretty bad?
Comment 5 Bill Nottingham 2004-03-19 11:40:00 EST
It just started with x.org. Haven't tested today's build, will do that
at some point.
Comment 6 Bill Nottingham 2004-03-22 01:16:14 EST
Still happens with current builds.

Assigned bug alias "xftbitmap" to this issue for easier closing
of dupes.
Comment 11 Mike A. Harris 2004-03-23 17:54:04 EST
Fixed in by above patch from Xft 2.1.6.

Additional note: the latest Xorg CVS has the new Xft 2.1.6

Comment 12 Mike A. Harris 2004-03-24 03:21:19 EST
Fixed in rawhide, in xorg-x11-, which will
be available tomorrow sometime.
Comment 13 Christopher Aillon 2004-03-24 17:01:09 EST
I still see a crash in Mozilla font code (see bug 118822) on
http://www.mrpalm.com/mobilephone_zone/connect.php3 after updating to
xorg-x11-  The crash on amazon seems to be
fixed however.
Comment 14 Mike A. Harris 2004-03-24 17:07:05 EST
Somehow the patch got inadvertently excluded from being applied.
I've fixed this and am building xorg-x11-
right now.
Comment 15 Mike A. Harris 2004-03-25 02:01:07 EST
<caillon> mharris, sweet, .9 works nicely

Ok, closing as fixed in RAWHIDE again.
