I seem to be lacking font-fu.
I have a bunch of thin linux clients running X. The clients run
almost everything locally. However they are diskless and get most of
their fonts off a separate machine running the X font server.
Prior to fontconfig, I think I understood how things worked.
I'm trying to get a selfcompiled copy of vlc running on the thin
clients, and I'm trying to work out whether fontconfig needs to run on
the xfs server, on the X server (= xfs client), or both. Getting
anything running on the thin client is painful enough I'd prefer to
skip there if possible, but vlc bitches about fonts not being
fc-list on the xfs server shows me lotsa stuff.
fc-list on the xfs client shows me nothing (successfully), but other
programs run fine.
