In my ~/.fonts.conf, I have defined the following:
<family>Bitstream Vera Sans</family>
Helvetica gets replaced by verdana without problems.
Luxi gets replaced by some font, but not verdana.
Bitstream stays the same.
Lucida always look the same as my prefered sans-serif font, even if I remove
it from the above rule.
Do you understand this behavior? I can't get font substitution to work
