Is ttfonts the "total crap that should never be installed" fonts package?
Comment 2 Akira TAGOH 2002-08-08 05:03:03 EDT
Hmm, did we drop it from Milan?
It exists on the tree. but latest-pkg says it's deprecated or not included.

About this problem, I think gtkhtml's font settings may relates it, because
gtkhtml considered a printing font from XLFD which set up on
gtkhtml-properties-capplet. so I want to make sure what did you choose a
variable width for printing on gtkhtml-properties-capplet.

BTW we missed gtkhtml-properties-capplet from menu. it was already difficult to
find from menu and UI was also difficult to understand.  so font settings issue
may be increased.

Why was this package dropped?
