Description Behdad Esfahbod 2007-11-05 20:20:17 EST
fontconfig-2.4.92-1 that I'm just building contains all the configuration done
in 59-liberation-fonts.conf, and much more to make liberation-fonts useful. 
Please remove that file for F9.

Patched & built.
Comment 2 Pravin Satpute 2012-07-26 12:06:52 EDT
As per latest font packaging guideline, i am adding fontconfig files now. Also want to add some hinting instructions for Liberation Mono.
Comment 3 Akira TAGOH 2012-07-26 21:40:53 EDT
If it's the common case, maybe good to consider contributing the changes to fontconfig upstream perhaps.
Comment 4 Pravin Satpute 2012-07-27 06:55:24 EDT
Those are very specific.
Basically added https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=842568#c3 in conf for mono.

Just IMHO, it's better when the fontconfig files are shipped with the font files themselves, and upstreamed font project side. This way the font project (which is supposed to know its font best) is in charge of fontconfig tweaking

At least, this is how it was done for dejavu.
