    xfstt


    Following a tutorial that came preinstalled on my debian linux system, i installed xfstt in order to use true type fonts. Yet as soon as i activated it, it took 97% of my cpu all the time. Bear in mind this is an older machine, but would it really affect cpu usage that bad?

    I don't think you need to use a font server to achieve true type fonts. I usually always install the package 'x-window-system-core' to avoid installing unecessary packages. As long as you have the right FontPath in your X config file, you should be alright.

    Well, that depends. If you install the fonts via apt or dselect, then I believe that process should be automated. If you are manually installing them, then you'll have to manually run those programs.

    does mkfont dir work with true type fonts?

    I believe you need ttfmkdir. I forget if that's the actual package name but you can run 'apt-cache search <pkg name>' to find it.
