Re: [K12OSN] Re: fonts in netscape on workstation



Some good instructions were found here:

http://www.linux.org.uk/~telsa/BitsAndPieces/browser-tweaks.html

I also found that using the microsoft .ttf that come with Windows95 or 
from their webpages made a very nice RPM of extra fonts. If there is any 
reason to buy a $5.00 cd of Windows 95 from somewhere.. this is.

The best order I found for fonts was the following:

catalogue =  /usr/share/fonts/microsoft/TrueType,
        /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/misc:unscaled,
        /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/75dpi:unscaled,
        /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/Type1,
        /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/Speedo,
        /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/CID,
        /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/misc,
        /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/75dpi,
        /usr/share/fonts/default/Type1,
        /usr/share/fonts/default/TrueType,
        /usr/share/fonts/ja/TrueType

THe first one being from the RPM I had made up. I removed all the 100dpi 
fonts because they seemed to mess up Java unless you have a monitor that 
actually handled 100dpi. THe best monitor I have did 96dpi and that 
caused the 100dpi to be much bigger than they should be.
