[Fontconfig] OpenGl and core X fonts
26 Apr 2003 14:03:19 +0200
I am looking into the cvs for Fltk-2.0, and it seems that they are
having a problem because fontconfig/xft no longer seems to support core
Fltk is a widget library with support for OpenGl. OpenGl has various
ways of drawing text, but the simplest appears to be using the function
glXUseXFont, which needs a XFontStruct* variable. Earlier versions of
Fltk solved this by explicitly asking for a core font when the font was
going to be used with glXUseXFont.
Are core fonts going to disappear completely? Have issues with OpenGl
been discussed in the context of fontconfig/xft? Any pointers?
