How to edit fontconfig? (to have a precedence order of fonts)

Basically, I want to be able to use the Google Noto fonts by default for every language I need (in just random text, that would not necessarily properly have language tags). The problem is the Noto fonts are separated into several fonts per language, so I can't just set one font as my system font and have everything work properly.

I have had Noto CJK HK set as my system font, and this works fine for Chinese etc. However, I also want to display Tamil text with the Noto Tamil font, but by default, the system falls back onto a different font (since Noto CJK HK doesn't have Tamil glyphs). I want to set an order of preference, by setting it so that if a glyph is not found in Noto CJK HK, the system will fall back and look at Noto Tamil, etc. I used to be able to do this decades ago by putting something like this in .fonts.conf

<alias>
    <family>Sans</family>
    <prefer>
        <family>Noto Sans CJK HK</family>
        <family>Noto Sans Tamil</family>
    </prefer>
</alias>

I am aware .fonts.conf is deprecated, so I'm using ~/.config/fontconfig/fonts.conf
I am also aware there needs to be a link in /etc/fonts/conf.d/ to /usr/share/fontconfig/conf.avail/50-user.conf

It just doesn't work anymore. What can I do to create a precedence order of fonts for the system to fallback on when glyphs are missing from a font?

Btw, I use KDE.

Re: How to edit fontconfig? (to have a precedence order of fonts)

"Does not work" how?

fc-match -s :charset=0b89

(That should be "உ")

I am aware .fonts.conf is deprecated, so I'm using ~/.config/fontconfig/fonts.conf

The suggestion would be to use sth. like ~/.config/fontconfig/conf.d/99-weirdassnonlatinglyphorder.conf ;-)

~/.config/fontconfig/fonts.conf should* also work according to 50-user.conf, provided it is symlinked from /etc/fonts/conf.d/ etc. wink

Re: How to edit fontconfig? (to have a precedence order of fonts)

Yeah, but the point of that scheme isn't so much to find a reason and way to channel frustration about the 8-bit wilderness that would not have happened if the roman or british empire or anybody else, really, had convinced the rest of the world to stop their silly attempts at not using latin glyphs and that in the end lead us to the devolution of ever more emojis (pretty much every cultural type set started as pictograms and for the most part our ancestors stopped that because they figured it's stupid…), but the /conf.d/99- part which makes it simpler and less error prone to juggle around configs than a single large fonts.conf that will sometimes have users introduce bash-style comments or other glitches that break the font configuration for some, but not all clients.
Depending on how robust forgiving the xml implementation is.

Thanks for the link. I didn't know that about the different unicode formats. I'm rather used to the encoding tangles ....

Fair enough, but separate files can introduce confusion, too. But I really just meant that what the OP had should work.

Re: How to edit fontconfig? (to have a precedence order of fonts)

Tried the 99-, it didn't work either.

I mean what I mean is. I have set my system font to Noto Sans CJK HK. This font does not contain any Tamil glyphs. If I select the font "Sans" (or basically any other font that doesn't have Tamil glyphs, so also "Noto Sans CJK HK") and try to type some Tamil, the Tamil comes out in some random font, it's readable, but I don't like it (I think it's Mangal). I want the system to fall back onto Noto Sans Tamil instead of Mangal.

I tried writing those lines in fonts.conf or the ~/.config/fontconfig/conf.d/99-weirdassnonlatinglyphorder.conf as you suggested, and the system still falls back on Mangal instead of Noto Sans Tamil when I select "Sans" or "Noto Sans CJK HK" as my font.

How would I get it to fallback to Noto Sans Tamil when the selected font doesn't have any Tamil glyphs?

EDIT: My full fonts.conf file is:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE fontconfig SYSTEM "urn:fontconfig:fonts.dtd">
<fontconfig>
<alias>
    <family>Sans</family>
    <prefer>
        <family>Noto Sans Tamil</family>
    </prefer>
</alias>
</fontconfig>

Re: How to edit fontconfig? (to have a precedence order of fonts)

We should not focus too much on where the config should be placed.
The canonical suggestion is to use the conf.d drop-in, but as discussed, ~/.config/fontconfig/fonts.conf will work fine.
I just pointed that out because I understood an implied "amidoinitrite?" in your elaborations on the config location.

Re: How to edit fontconfig? (to have a precedence order of fonts)

Here is my output from that command:

Interestingly, this output is different from what I would get if I put a Chinese character. For a Chinese character, Noto Sans CJK HK comes up first, but here, Noto Sans Tamil comes before it. It is still preceeded by Vijaya and latha, which I don't want though. I tried deleting my fonts.conf and 99-etcetc file, and I got the same output. So it seems that the fonts.conf files aren't doing anything.

Re: How to edit fontconfig? (to have a precedence order of fonts)

There's probably another config in the way that prefers those fonts.
Let's see

Re: How to edit fontconfig? (to have a precedence order of fonts)

It mentiones neither "Vijaya" nor  "Latha"
Incidentally:

fc-list | grep -i vijaya
grep -i vijaya /etc/fonts/conf.d/* /etc/fonts/fonts.conf /home/ganyi/.fonts.conf

Re: How to edit fontconfig? (to have a precedence order of fonts)

I was wondering if I just got the font wrong (I thought it was Vijaya, but I'm really not 100% sure).

$ fc-list | grep -i vijaya
/usr/share/fonts/TTF/vijayab.ttf: Vijaya:style=Bold
/usr/share/fonts/TTF/vijaya.ttf: Vijaya:style=Regular
$ grep -i vijaya /etc/fonts/conf.d/* /etc/fonts/fonts.conf /home/ganyi/.fonts.conf
grep: /etc/fonts/conf.d/49-sansserif.conf.backup: No such file or directory

Yes, that's actually what the second command returns...

Re: How to edit fontconfig? (to have a precedence order of fonts)

stat /etc/fonts/conf.d/49-sansserif.conf.backup
ls -l /etc/fonts/conf.d | grep "49-sansserif.conf.backup"

But that's hardly the problem/what gets vijaya resolved.
I missed

The canonical generic name is "sans-serif", there should be an alias for "sans", "Sans" is wrong.
