generic font configuration library – support binaries Fontconfig is a font configuration and customization library, which does not depend on the X Window System. It is designed to locate fonts within the system and select them according to requirements specified by applications. . Fontconfig is not a rasterization library, nor does it impose a particular rasterization library on the application. The X-specific library ‘Xft’ uses fontconfig along with freetype to specify and rasterize fonts. . This package contains a program to maintain the fontconfig cache (fc-cache), a sample program to list installed fonts (fc-list), a program to test the matching rules (fc-match) and a program to dump the binary cache files in string form (fc-cat). It no longer makes fonts managed by defoma available to fontconfig applications.
