scalable fonts for X

xfonts-scalable provides fonts that can be drawn at any size by the X server or font server without loss of quality. In most cases it is desirable to have the X font server (xfs) and/or an X server installed to make the fonts available to X clients.

This package is missing three fonts from the X.Org source archives because the license terms on the fonts do not meet the Debian Free Software Guidelines; they are the Type1 fonts Adobe Utopia, IBM Courier, and Bigelow & Holmes (B&H) Luxi.

This package requires the xutils package to prepare the font directories for use by an X server or X font server.
