Default emacs and terminus, proggy and ttf-inconsolata fonts

Hello,

This is on Testing. In Emacs if I left-click the mouse button with the
Shift key pressed, I get the Font Menu from which I can select some of
the preset fonts (fixed, courier, etc.).

I want to try terminus, proggy and ttf-inconsolata fonts. I can set
terminus font by setting the Basic faces option in Emacs by specifying
the family as Terminus. However, how I try ttf-inconsolata? It is not
shown in xfontsel dialog box.

Also, Debian does not appear to have proggy fonts, or am I missing
something.

Finally, if I choose to stick with terminus, how do I make Emacs show
different sizes in the Font Menu (Shift+LeftClick)?

Thanks.

That's apparently due to http://bugs.debian.org/455710.

Does not seem possible AFAIK. Your best bet would be to try Emacs 23
which has XFT support but is not released yet. Pre-compiled snapshots
for Debian are available from http://emacs.orebokech.com.

Ah, right. It is still in the process of being fixed I see.

Wonderful! Fonts looks markedly better than in version 22.

I did a bit of google search and it appears that these cvs packages have
a bit of baggage with Debian legal ... interesting history.

And what's up with this extremely slow pace (to me at least) of Emacs
releases and development?

Thanks a ton!
Regards.

The maintainer disagrees with the majority of Debian developers about
the GFDL and consequently preferred to put the package in his own
repository, rather than removing the manuals. See [1], [2].

The development is actually not so slow, although there are could be
more many active developers. But the Emacs 22 release process
definitely took too long, it seems this will be faster for Emacs 23.
The first pretest has already been released[3], so we have reason to
hope for a release in 2009.

Cheers,
Sven

Just wanted to give this feedback. I can see inconsolata font now in
fontsel. I am not sure what changed, only that I restarted the machine
earlier today. Perhaps the aptitude installation did not go through all
the steps at that time.

Plus I can use all the fonts the system sees! Wonderful anti-aliased
fonts, terminus, inconsolata, etc.

Thanks a ton for the URL for the debs of snapshots.

Regards.
