xpaint : Setting Default Font Preference?


Hello,

For xpaint, I would like to set as default: arial monotype bold-italic.

Would you know if it is possible ?

thank you


The code states this BUT NO Arial !!

xpaint -textfont "Times-18" and
xpaint -textfont "dejavu.sans.mono-50:bold:italic"
work, however/ but I need arial monotype bold-italic.

Code:
>graphic.c 
           

extern int file_isSpecialImage;                                                                                               #
extern int file_transparent;                                                                                                  #
extern int file_numpages;                                                                                                     #
                                                                                                                              #

You need to install the ttf-mscorefonts package if you want Arial font.

But it wont be into the menu, as I could see in the src code.

Does Arial.ttf make the same?
