/.fonts from /etc/fonts/fonts.conf


Hi,
I am facing some hinting issue for Japanese fonts.
When I comment
<dir>~/.fonts</dir> in /etc/fonts/fonts.conf

all fonts are proper. But I do miss some of the fonts by commenting this.
I am in doubt, how the folder .fonts gets all the fonts ? (actual location for these fonts)

With Thanks in advance,
Barun Parichha

/usr/share/fonts

It probably depends on your distro too. Even if your fonts are not Japanese, you probably have a lot of true type fonts already on your computer. Why don't you do a quick find for them?
Code:
find / -name "*ttf"
In debian they are on /usr/share/fonts/...
But I think you can put them somewhere on your home dir so that only you can access them. If it's your computer, just put them on the global dir just to save you the trouble. You can put any font file over there and you'll be able to use them since the next time you start X. If you use gnome, Ctrl-L fonts:// on nautilus should show you your current fonts.

platex

I really don't know about solaris' repository, and apparently the font you want is a java related one. But after one google search it said somewhere that font came with the platex package (latex for Japanese formatted documents). You may want to try over there.
