Description Jens Petersen 2007-08-23 20:39:15 EDT
Description of problem:
We currently install certain bitmap fonts in both 100dpi and 75dpi
variants (currently the 75dpi fonts seem to have higher priority): from comps

      <packagereq type="mandatory">xorg-x11-fonts-100dpi</packagereq>
      <packagereq type="mandatory">xorg-x11-fonts-75dpi</packagereq>
      <packagereq type="mandatory">xorg-x11-fonts-ISO8859-1-100dpi</packagereq>
      <packagereq type="mandatory">xorg-x11-fonts-ISO8859-1-75dpi</packagereq>

Could we make the 100dpi (or 75dpi?) packages optional instead,
or are both really still necessary?

I ask also in the context of the other 75/100dpi packages currently
listened in comps for various languages: 

installed for various languages.

CCing X and font gurus for comments.
Comment 2 Jens Petersen 2007-08-29 20:53:32 EDT
Just to add that Nicolas Mailhot originally proposed this in a thread on
fonts in comps:
His suggestion was to just install the 100dpi fonts by default.
Comment 3 Behdad Esfahbod 2007-09-03 20:13:28 EDT
100dpi makes more sense.  Most monitors these days range from 85 to 120 dpi.
Comment 4 Adam Jackson 2007-09-06 15:42:06 EDT
100dpi only is totally fine with me, apps shouldn't be using the legacy bitmap
fonts anymore anyway.

Fixed in comps for f8, closing.
