rendering, specifically the font selection, especially when you want
to still be able to reach the bitmap fonts. I don't think
fontconfig/xft allows to reach them,
it's written by anti-aliased-vector-fonts integrists who
their use is the only one relevant. And that documentation is for
wimps, and "deprecated" and "stubbed" are synonyms.
 I can't work without
-Misc-MiscFixed-Medium-R-Normal--10-100-75-75-C-60-*, but I can stand
using a different name as long as the glyph rendering is identical.
As you say, the name is different but the glyph rendering is identical:
mfabian＠magellan:~$ fc-list "Misc Fixed:pixelsize=10:style=Regular" family style
/usr/share/fonts/misc/6x10.pcf.gz: Misc Fixed:style=Regular
/usr/share/fonts/japanese/5x10a.pcf.gz: Misc Fixed:style=Regular
/usr/share/fonts/misc/6x10-ISO8859-1.pcf.gz: Misc Fixed:style=Regular
(Using bitmap fonts via fontconfig/Xft is a bit slower though than
via the X11 core font system).
On openSUSE it is called "Misc Fixed", on other distributions just
"Fixed". That is because on openSUSE freetype2 contains a patch to
prepend the foundry ("Misc") and a space to the family ("Fixed") for
bitmap fonts (*only* for bitmap fonts!). Otherwise you get problems
distinguishing the many completely different and unrelated fonts with
family name "Fixed" but a different foundry because the font selection
GUIs don’t let you specify the foundry.
And the bitmap fonts
would be used by browsers for many pages which ask for "Helvetica".
Prepending "Adobe " to make this "Adobe Helvetica" avoids using these
bitmap fonts by default for many web pages without disabling them
completely and still having them available for users who like them.
In a config file, like for XEmacs, you could add the foundry, i.e.
specify something like:
but in don’t know any GUI yet which lets you specify a foundry.
