After installing Infinality, slackpkg will reinstall the original fontconfig so I tried blacklisting it

Code:
slackpkg blacklist fontconfig
If I read the docs correctly, that should fix the problem.

There is no reason to do that, as stated by dugan in this post. You of course still need fontconfig, and if an upgrade is provided you should apply it unless you have a sound rationale not to.

Furthermore, in case you wonder, blacklisting a package does not remove it, but just prevents that slackpkg proposes you to upgrade this package when running "slackpkg upgrade-all" whenever an upgrade is available. Additionally even in that case you can still upgrade using the upgradepkg command.

That post is over 3 years old and may no longer be accurate, I upgraded and it changed fontconfig and the good looking fonts disappeared. I reinstalled infinality and the good looking fonts reappeared.

Code:
slackpkg search fontcon*

Looking for fontcon* in package list. Please wait... DONE

The list below shows all packages with name matching "fontcon*".

[ Status           ] [ Repository               ] [ Package                                  ]
  upgrade                  slackware64                  fontconfig-2.11.95-x86_64-1 --> fontconfig-2.11.1-x86_64-2  

You can search specific files using "slackpkg file-search file".
That is with infinality installed, only one fontconfig.

Also, when I run
Code:
slackpkg install-new
it gives a list of pkgs to be installed that I can choose from but when I run
Code:
slackpkg upgrade-all
it just upgrades everything without showing me what it is going to do.

I may have something misconfigured, here are my slackpkg.conf and slackpkgplus.conf files (without comment lines). Most are default settings.

Code:
cat /etc/slackpkg/slackpkg.conf |grep -v ^# |grep .

Well, I don't know. I am not an Infinality user, so I will let others comment.

I don't use slackpkg, let alone slackpkg+, so I can't help you here either, sorry.
