Description Tim Mayberry 2006-01-10 14:52:35 UTC
A small patch was submitted to the cairo list back in September
that enabled cairo to support the fontconfig FC_EMBEDDED_BITMAP option. The
patch allows gtk/gnome applications to always display the fonts with the
embedded bitmaps if it is specified in the fontconfig configuration file.

This patch effects a few bugs in the Red Hat bugzilla(164374,167383) and I was
wondering if there was any plan to incorporate this patch(or something like it)
into cairo as it isn't a Red Hat specific bug and is functionality that may be
desirable for other linux distributions.
