No Bitstream Vera fonts included?


Does anyone know if there is a particular reason why the Bitstream Vera fonts were not included in Slackware 12? I've got them anyway so they were easy enough to install. They were included with Slackware 11.

Refer to the "dejavu-ttf" package...

That's too funny. I was looking for a decent alternative font to the Bitstream Vera on for a termial and found Dejavu - thought "Hey, this looks nice. It will work instead."

d'oh!
