I am running Xubuntu 12.04.
I installed Helvetica and Helvetica Neue. For some reason, websites that use Helvetica Neue display fine, but those who use Helvetica have some issues... http://i.stack.imgur.com/yHkGk.png
With Helvetica Neue (yay tampermonkey!)... http://i.stack.imgur.com/2c6mh.png
As you can see, there is a rather annoying problem: Helvetica is always BOLD.
When checking with
[CENSORED]@[CENSORED]:~$ fc-match Helvetica Fontconfig warning: "/etc/fonts/conf.d/50-user.conf", line 9: reading configurations from ~/.fonts.conf is deprecated. Helvetica-Bold.ttf: "Helvetica" "粗體"
That's why it displays funny! Helvetica matches to Helvetica-Bold.ttf, not Helvetica.ttf!
Is there anything I could add to ~/fonts.conf or something that could fix this issue? I don't like relying on Tampermonkey (yes, I wrote a script) to fix the display issues.
