x11 font substitution

Do you have an X11 application that insists on using a font you hate?

Change that easily with fontconfig.

This syntax in your .fonts.conf will change the response for one font into an answer from another:

  <family>Tex Gyre Pagella</family>

Add as many stanzas as you like; then run fc-cache and restart your application.
