Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 157628
chkfontpath is now obsolete?
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:05 EST
$ chkfontpath -l
fails to report the Bitstream Vera font directory, whereas
successfully reports the Bitstream Vera fonts
It does not make sense having two independent methods to configure fonts,
especially when they don't agree that a font is present.
fontconfig seems to have become the defacto standard method for configuring
fonts. So I recommend that chkfontpath be rewritten using the fontconfig
(but unfortunately no, I'm not able to submit the patch)
