Handle the Ultra style name (556 bytes, patch)

Description Ross Burton 2005-02-09 04:55:45 UTC
When using type 1 fonts the weights have to be invented by fontconfig from the
style names.  However, Ultra isn't handled.  The attached patch adds Ultra an
alternative for FC_WEIGHT_ULTRABOLD.

Handle the Ultra style name
Comment 2 Keith Packard 2005-02-24 09:54:57 UTC
The code currently looks in the style name for substrings matching the specified
names; unfortunately 'ultra' isn't unique in this regard -- a Type1 font with
'ultracondensed' in the style name will accidentally match 'ultra' as well.

Perhaps some word-boundary tests could be added which would distinguish these
two cases.
Comment 3 Keith Packard 2006-09-01 20:27:02 UTC
Please test branch 'ultra-bold' and see if this works for you. I don't have any
fonts with this characteristic. Alternatively, point me at a font which does...
Comment 4 Keith Packard 2006-09-02 19:16:05 UTC
sorry, that's the ultra-weight branch

$ git-clone git://anongit.freedesktop.org/git/fontconfig
$ cd fontconfig
$ git-checkout ultra-weight
$ sh ./autogen.sh

Keith, didn't you fix this?
Comment 6 Keith Packard 2007-10-25 14:00:28 UTC
yeah, fixed but never added to master. Done now.
