Re: [XaraXtreme-dev] Text rendering status

Hi, Martin.

Yep. Spot on, thats the usual case on those platforms (Linux, Solaris, etc), but in the case of Mac OS X,

It becomes:, as with the proper convention on the Mac /Library/ Application Support/XaraLX/share/fonts

Or on some platforms /usr/local/share/<PACKAGE_NAME>/fonts and of course these paths should be added to your fonts.conf file etc. and you should be able to re-cache the users and the hosts font database by just typing at the cmd prompt:

"sudo fc-cache" and that should be it as far as I remember...

this could all be done by a shell script, to do this for the user, I know it can be done in OS X in the Installer pkg with a post install script.

So when we want to distribute fonts with Xara LX, where should we be
installing them to?

Following the examples of other packages (like OpenOffice or
StarOffice), they should go into a directory called
  /opt/<package name>/share/fonts/
i.e., something like

During installation this directory needs to be added to the global
configuration file. Maybe the package manager can do that. In case of
doubt, have a look at the OpenOffice or StarOffice installation
