Re: ms-ttf fonts MESSAGE


I just installed NetBSD 5.0 and wanted to also install the ms-ttf fonts.
I did what was told in MESSAGE but the fonts weren't not listed by fc-list.
Some guys at #netbsd helped and we found that the /usr/pkg/lib/X11/fonts/ path
has to be added to the /etc/fonts/fonts.conf file.
Shouldn't this be added to MESSAGE ?

IIRC about year or two ago Mark Weinem updated appropriate NetBSD Guide
sections. See

Why not put this URL in MESSAGE ?
I think it may be helpful for other users.

BTW why do we have to instruct fontconfig where the fonts are + put the paths in the X config file ?
That sounds redundant to me.

Thank you
