	</pattern> 
</rejectfont>
put it on kindle to
/etc/fonts/local.conf

btw
i like the futura-font and dont reject it
I'm trying to reject system fonts with this code, but they stay in the list.

1. Create local.conf.txt in the root/fonts
2. Copy this code and put it in local.conf.txt
3. Save changes and restart the Kindle

Am I doing something wrong? Please help

the file name should be local.conf and not local.conf.txt.

.txt is not a part of the name, it's just an extention.. Though tried without extention and didn't work anyway..

What program are you using to create the file?

.txt is part of the filename and will result in the file not working. Also, if you're using Windows, you need to be sure your file is using unix style line endings (LF only) and not windows (CR LF).

There are several free text editors that let you switch between Windows/Linux style line endings. Here are two:

http://notepad-plus-plus.org/
http://www.editpadlite.com/

The file needs to be placed in /etc/fonts/ -- usbnetwork is required in order to access that directory.

Thank you very much.. I've understood what's the problem.
I am using Windows and was trying to put the file through the regular USB networking..

I installed Putty, started usbnetworking on my Kindle, connected with the USB, put an IP 192.168.15.244, a black window popped out and after 1-2 minutes an error appears "Connection time out".

can you please tell me how to transfer files through usbnetworking? or maybe give me a link..? i tried to search some useful information by myself, but found nothing..

Fontconfig problem

I went through /etc/fonts/conf.d/ folder and looked through most files. Interestingly in 51-local.conf is the call for including local.conf - no surprise there, it is part of fc.
Code:
<include ignore_missing="yes">local.conf</include>
Does exactly what it needs to do. We get to e.g. reject extra fonts. 70-lab126-altfonts.conf enables our lovely /mnt/us/fonts directory with:
Code:
<dir>/mnt/us/fonts</dir>
Again no surprise here. It then is supposed to read a config file out of /mnt/us. The surprise here is that fc does not actually execute it. What kind of black magic is that? This is what the config file has:
Code:
<include ignore_missing="yes">
/mnt/us/fonts/alternate.conf
</include>
I am reading this and think - great news - access to fontconfig without jailbreak directly in usb accessible storage. Except it doesn't work.

I moved all my custom fonts to /mnt/us/altfonts and the following file works just fine in /etc/fonts/local.conf, but not when moved to /mnt/us/fonts/alternate.conf. What am I missing?
Code:
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE fontconfig SYSTEM "fonts.dtd">
<fontconfig>
  <dir>/mnt/us/altfonts</dir>
</fontconfig>
p.s.:All this done on PW 5.3.3

Update: Baaah, stupid XML. It works just fine when the include is not spread over 3 lines. Otherwise it will look for "\n/mnt/us/fonts/alternate.conf\n" which of course does not exist. Who writes broken XML code at lab126? Unless they screwed it up on purpose.

Wow! What a let-down...

I just tried it myself on the PW 5.3.3 and it did not work. I was pouring through those files yesterday for about 30 minutes and missed the alternate.conf reference. I can imagine your frustration.

You know the real kicker? I edited 70-lab126-altfonts.conf:
Code:
From:
<include ignore_missing="yes">
/mnt/us/fonts/alternate.conf
</include>

To:
<include ignore_missing="yes">/mnt/us/fonts/alternate.conf</include>
It works now. Perhaps the line ending was screwing it up? I wouldn't think that would be a problem. I double-checked to make sure I didn't have any stray conf files anywhere. Can you try that just in case I'm wrong...

Edit: I just made a change to alternate.conf and it worked after a restart.

Don't laugh. Fixed now, BUT to enable it you have to jailbreak and edit that file. Defeats the purpose of not having to jailbreak.

MR: We (could) have a button for that.

A button can do anything that an executable running as 'root' can do.
