[Bug 209358] Re: fonts in Qt4 look ugly because it uses Nimbus Sans L instead of Deja Vu Sans for Sans-Serif

I’m trying KDE 4 these days and I was surprised to see everything in
Helvetica (Nimbus Sans). It had adopted the font settings of KDE 3 which
demand a sans serif generically, fontconfig resolves “Sans Serif” to
“Lucida Sans”, as “fc-match” shows, but Qt 4 (KDE 4) anyway uses
Helvetica for generic sans serif.
That hardcoded substitution in Qt 4 is really annoying. I’m really using
the flexible fontconfig configuration framework, but Qt 4 breaks it,
demanding much higher efforts in configuring applications to my wishes.
That is a question of standard compliance. I’m going to contact Qt
Software (formerly known as Trolltech).
