I know there has been a lot of back and forth about this issue, but where things ended up are fairly unclear. I'm trying to use bar with two TTF fonts "Roboto Slab" and "FontAwesome", both are installed on my system:

[vendion@Fail4][~]% fc-list | grep 'Roboto Slab'
/usr/share/fonts/TTF/RobotoSlab-Light.ttf: Roboto Slab:style=Light
/usr/share/fonts/TTF/RobotoSlab-Regular.ttf: Roboto Slab:style=Regular
/usr/share/fonts/TTF/RobotoSlab-Thin.ttf: Roboto Slab:style=Thin
/usr/share/fonts/TTF/RobotoSlab-Bold.ttf: Roboto Slab:style=Bold
[vendion@Fail4][~]% fc-list | grep 'FontAwesome'
/usr/share/fonts/TTF/fontawesome-webfont.ttf: FontAwesome:style=Regular
[vendion@Fail4][~]% 

I have even tried different syntaxes for telling bar to use them -f "Roboto Slab-10" -f "FontAwesome-10", -f "Roboto Slab:size=10" -f "FontAwesome:size=10", and -f "xft:Roboto Slab:size=10" -f "FontAwesome:size=10". I've even tried this syntax -*-Roboto Slab-medium-o-*-*-14-*-*-*-*-*-*-* to no avail. This leads me to think XFT is still unsupported in this version, is this correct?

Hi, sorry to bring up this old issue, but as it's still open... Are there any plans to merge the krypt-n XFT fork back in here?
Cheers

I would also like to know, if there are any plans to finally include xft-support. The cairo-love branch is quite old already :/

Is there a particular reason xft hasn't been considered? Maybe it's unnecessary considering the original goals of bar?
