Drakfont is intended to provide an easy way to install TrueType and *.pcf.gz
fonts on your system, and remove them. It can also automatically install the
fonts of your Windows pertition if you have one.
Drakfont installs new fonts in '/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/drakfont' and
Drakfont updates it as necessary.
When asked for adding Windows fonts, drakfont will scan any MOUNTED
vfat partitions. If your Windows partition is not mounted at boot, you'll have
to mount it before launching drakfont.
Be carefull not to install more fonts than xfs can support.
IMPORTANT : when you choose to add fonts, be sure that you have the right to
copy them on your system.
Drakfont understands the following command line switches:
-p pos_x pos_y
Launch drakfont at the specified position
Display help screen
Rebuild fonts list
Rebuild fonts list with strong verification. No bogus fonts is accepted, but
somme good fonts will be also removed. Try -c before -r.
Remove the fonts installed with drakfont and clean the xfs configuration.
Try -r before -k.
Drakfont verifies the integrity of the fonts directories
each times the computer is restarted.
If you find a bug, mail it to me.
In rare case, drakfont may freeze your display, or crash your X server.
This is due to malformed fonts.
To correct crashed X or xfs, log you as root and launch drakfont -c (even from
console), and if this doesn't resolve the bug, launch drakfont -r. If this
doesn't work either, you can launch drakfont -k. It will clean everything, but the
fonts will be erased too. I suggest you to re-install them one by one to find
the bogus font that causes your X to crash. Be also carefull not to install
more fonts than xfs can support.
