Since I maintain fontconfig, time to time I hear contradicting opinions which font families should be used in the system if not said otherwise, i. e. which families should be preferred for sans, serif and monospace generic aliases and how they should be rendered. Bug reports I got was talking about overall system defaults, concerning fontconfig rules therefore.
General idea was to weaken the word ‘default’ in regard to font setting by creating a direct window into basic fontconfig setting of the system (of course: for advanced effects, fontconfig xml coding is still needed).
I hope that, together with fontinfo.o.o, tuning your fonts will be much easier!
Certainly, this module is not done. Firstly, I would like to fix bugs which users will meet. After this stabilizing period, perhaps next hackweek, I will consider how hard would be to add per-user setting capability to fonts-config script, which would almost automatically mean per-user font setting capability in the module itself.
