Hi Oskar and all you others,

So you'd propose to use the condensed versions of DejaVu Sans
and DejaVu Serif (unfortunately, there's no such version for
the DejaVu Mono font)? Fine with me. Perhaps we should then
use the not-condensed version of DejaVu Sans as the fourth
font? (i.e. what had been the 'Charter' font family in the
old version) instead of the FPL Neu font?

Please let me know what you think (not just Oskar but also
everyone else interested!)

Well, in that's case it's going to be your problem;-) If the
user just does a local install they probably should go in a
'.fonts' directory in the users home directory - that's in the
users font path by default. The other place the system seems
to always look into is '/usr/share/fonts/'. Chances also seem
good that it also will consider '/usr/local/share/fonts/'. But
that's all something I'm also still trying to figure out...
I'll keep you updated if I have any new insights!

                          Best regards, Jens

PS: Work on the UTF-8 enabled version is progressing nicely, I
    hope to be able to release something after the weekend;-)
