To all Unix users, I'd like to ask you if you could test my fontconfig XML file.
If so you need X.org/XFree86 (KDE/Gnome/XFCE, etc...). You need to
have the Microsoft fonts installed (AKA webcore or webfonts) that
Microsoft released for free a few years back.

Then, you need to copy this file:
http://www.auriance.com/docs/pcbsd/fonts/local.conf into this

 - On FreeBSD: /usr/X11R6/etc/fonts/
 - On Linux: /etc/fonts/

Then you need to remove this file (if you have one):

Choose "sans-serif", "monospace" and "serif" accordingly as default
for your desktop in KDE or Gnome.

Log out and relog in to your desktop environment. Fonts should look
just like on Windows. There are some browsers such as Opera on Linux,
Konqueror that display fonts perfectly, just as on Windows:


Please let me know what you think about it. I'd like some feedback. We
developped this for PC-BSD (www.pcbsd.org), a free operating system
based on FreeBSD.
