fc-match "Thorndale AMT" -> "Nimbus Roman No9 L", not deja-vu
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:39 EST
on install of dejavu-lgc-fonts
fc-match "Thorndale AMT" now says...
DejaVuLGCSerif.ttf: "DejaVu LGC Serif" "Book"
instead of "Nimbus Roman No9 L"
Thorndale AMT is our RHEL "Times New Roman" metrically equivalent font.
So on RHEL fc-match "Times New Roman" when the agfa monotype fonts are installed
should say "Thorndale AMT", so that .docs opened in e.g. OOo look as close to
msword as possible. That's still ok.
On FC, fc-match "Times New Roman" should say "Nimbus Roman No9 L", that's still ok.
But On FC, fc-match "Thorndale AMT" should follow the "Times New Roman" logic
and give us "Nimbus Roman No9 L", so that stuff created in RHEL looks close to
correct on non-agfa installs, but with dejavu-lgc installed gives one of the
deja-vu fonts instead.

I'm not fontconfig config literate, but this patch to fontconfig's fonts.conf
does what I want, explicitly set Nimbus No 9 Roman L as the preferred
Thorndale AMT fallback, and while I'm at it set the "upstream" afga monotypes
names as shipped as Staroffice as aliases to their "AMT" extension names as
shipped in RHEL. i.e. fix my problem :-) and make documents written in
StarOffice look right when opened with OpenOffice.org in RHEL/FC
Behdad, does the patch look okay?
Yes, looks okay. I'll push it in later, but feel free to do.
