Comment 1 Akira TAGOH 2013-08-20 16:00:07 UTC
Where is it from?

and why do they wannt to remove an alias for Arial Narrow?
Comment 2 Behdad Esfahbod 2013-08-20 16:02:33 UTC
From a bug on Chrome's font selection.  That bug is irrelevant.

Oh, the Arial Narrow my bad, I should have cut that part out.  I just diff'ed it with our latest file.

Comment 3 Akira TAGOH 2013-08-21 04:16:18 UTC
Aha. interesting for binding stuff. though it's a known RFE as Bug#19375.

Anyway, the change without Arial Narrow one committed into git.

Further changes to 30-metric-aliases.conf

I'm not happy with the current 30-metric-fonts.conf. This patch makes some changes:

Big changes:
- Handle more PostScript fonts (further reduce 30-urw-aliases.conf)
- Update the big comment

- Add missing maps, for symmetry

- Add "Helvetica Condensed" <-> "Arial Narrow" map

- Add missing Courier -> Cursor alias
- Add "Helvetica Condensed" -> "Heros Cn" alias
- Remove Arial -> Heros and "Times New Roman" -> Termes maps
Comment 5 Jan Alexander Steffens (heftig) 2013-09-14 00:52:11 UTC
Reopening, please look at the posted patch.
Comment 6 Behdad Esfahbod 2013-09-14 00:53:23 UTC
Thanks.  Normally it's preferable to open new bugs, but this one should be fine.
