51
52 <para><application>Xorg</application>&apos;s ancestor (X11R1, in 1987) at
53 first only provided bitmap fonts, with a tool (<command>bdftopcf</command>)
54 to assist in their installation. With the introduction of
55 <application>xorg-server-1.19.0</application>
56 and <application>libXfont2</application> many people will not need them.
57 There are still a few old packages which might require, or benefit from,
58 these deprecated fonts and so the following packages are shown here.</para>
59
60 <note>
61 <para>
62 The font-adobe-100dpi package installs 100 dots per inch versions of
63 Courier, Helvetica, New Century Schoolbook and Times fonts.
64 </para>
65
66 <para>
67 The remaining font packages here provide 75dpi versions of those fonts,
68 and various miscellaneous fonts - mostly for legacy encodings. Those are
69 primarily to silence warnings when testing Xorg. In previous versions
70 of BLFS a lot more legacy fonts were installed.
