Re: Rawhide fonts problem report for 2009-07-20

hey, I am so supprised, I downloaded the SFNT ttf font I made
3 years ago, and did an fc-cache, you know what? it worked!

some magic must had happened in the past 3 years, and I am really
glad that this multi-strike SFNT bitmap font is now supported. This
cuts the package size from 6.2M for the original PCF font down to
only 2M, and I believe the rendering speed will also boost significantly.


when do you want the bitmap format conversion to happen? the sooner
the better or convert them all together at some point?

just curious, for PCF, what format you plan to convert to ?

I had tried SFNT TTF/OTF, neither of them works with the current
(cache file could not be generated).

File a bug?!?!?


yes, I brought it up on fontconfig's mailing list in 2006,

That's not filing a bug.

mpsuzuki posted a patch, but it has never been committed.

That's exactly why one should file a bug.


also, it seemed there were some intrinsic difficulties for fontconfig to
handle multi-strike sfnt ttf.
