Description Stephen 2007-02-18 22:12:54 EST
Please configure emacs with the additional options:

  --enable-font-backend --with-xft

to enable true type font support.

The new font backend is only enabled if emacs is started as:

  emacs --enable-font-backend

So should be safe.

Is this about xemacs?  I don't see any such options in GNU emacs' configure
script sources or documentation.
Comment 2 Stephen 2007-02-19 09:18:39 EST
I think this should be available in the new emacs 22 (as shipped in rawhide).


Did I get this wrong? Has this feature been bumped to emacs 23?

No, it is not. Emacs-23 will have it after the emacs-unicode-2 branch will be
merged to emacs mainline... 

Comment 4 Stephen 2007-02-22 12:07:16 EST
OK. Waiting for emacs 23...
Comment 5 Bill Nottingham 2007-03-02 12:45:34 EST
Moving to 'devel' as discussed on
