Re: What metric does fontconfig use to select a font



That depends on what kind of the fontconfig configuration files you have. you may get more information from the debugging log by setting the env var like FC_DEBUG=4.

Hmm, it seems ~/.fonts.conf will be the first processed configurations. So this solution should work. Thanks.

BTW, how does fontconfig sort the precedence of fonts according to the application request? If this question is not fully answered, maybe other problems will arise in the future. Do you have any idea on that?

maybe something like the following example in ~/.fonts.conf could work:

 <match target="pattern">
   <test name="family" qual="all"><string>sans-serif</string></test>
   <edit mode="assign_replace" name="family">
     <string>Helvetica</string>
   </edit>
   <edit mode="assign_replace" name="foundry">
     <string>Adobe</string>
   </edit>
 </match>

But I'm not sure if this is a good idea, since the font you choose might
only be suitable for a limited range of character sets. Maybe that could
be sorted out by adding additional "lang" tests...
