Fontconfig is a library for configuring and customizing font access. It
contains two essential modules: the configuration module, which builds
an internal configuration from XML files, and the matching module,
which accepts font patterns and returns the nearest matching font.


Configures Fonts for X Windows and other applications.

Usually fonts-config is called automatically via SuSEconfig (SuSEconfig
--module fonts), which is usually automatically called by YaST2. You
can also execute fonts-config directly, which is mainly useful for
debugging it.

Computer Modern Unicode fonts were converted from metafont sources
using [1] textrace and [2] pfaedit (030404). Their main purpose is to
create free good quality fonts for use in X Window System applications
supporting many languages. Currently the fonts contain glyphs from
Latin1 (Metafont ec, tc), Cyrillic (la, rx) and Greek (cbgreek when
available) code sets.

The DejaVu fonts are a font family based on the Bitstream Vera Fonts.
Its purpose is to provide a wider range of characters while maintaining
the original look and feel through the process of collaborative


This is an internal package that is used to create the patterns as part
of the installation source setup. Installation of this package does
not make sense.

This particular package contains the Font patterns.


a2jmidid is daemon for exposing legacy ALSA sequencer applications in JACK MIDI system.


Cadence is a set of tools useful for audio production.
Cadence itself is also an application (the main one), which this page will document.
There are other applications that are part of the Cadence suite, they are usually named as the "Cadence tools".
They are:


Some of these also have sub-tools, such as Cadence-JackMeter and Claudia-Launcher.

Carla is an audio plugin host, with support for many audio drivers
and plugin formats. It features automation of parameters via MIDI CC
and full OSC control. It currently supports LADSPA, DSSI, LV2, VST2/3
and AU plugin formats, plus GIG, SF2 and SFZ sounds banks.
It futher supports bridging Window plugins using Wine.

jack_capture is a small program to capture whatever
sound is going out to your speakers into a file.

LADI Session Handler or simply ladish is a session management system for JACK applications on GNU/Linux.


LASH (formerly LADCCA) is a session management system for JACK and ALSA
audio applications on GNU/Linux. Its aim is to allow you to have many
different audio programs running at once and to save the setup, close
them down, then reload the setup at some other time.


Lilv is a library to make the use of LV2 plugins as simple as possible for applications. Lilv is the successor to SLV2, rewritten to be significantly faster and have minimal dependencies.
Lilv is Free Software (using an extremely liberal “MIT-style” license) written in C99 using Serd and Sord, and is known to work on GNU/Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows 7 with MingW


LV2 is a portable plugin standard for audio systems, similar in scope to LADSPA,
VST, AU, and others. It defines a C API for code and a format for data files
which collectively describe a plugin. LV2 consists of a simple core (roughly
equivalent in power to LADSPA) which can be extended to support more advanced
functionality. This allows the interface to be "grown" to accommodate the needs
of real software as they arise.

LV2 is both a stable interface and a forward-moving project: there is a stable
set of "official" extensions in use while new functionality is actively
developed. Anyone can extend LV2, which allows developers to try out new ideas
and ensure they work in practice. Good extensions are vetted by the community
and included in the official distribution so they can be relied on to be widely
supported. This open development model means developers can always scratch their
itch without a central authority getting in the way. The current stable release
includes most functionality required by modern plugins, including:

* Audio, control, "control voltage" (audio-rate control), and event
(e.g. MIDI) input and output
* Expressive open-ended port metadata, including:
- "Meaningful" controls (e.g. gain or envelope attack) allowing intelligent
host control or UI generation
- Control units (e.g. Hz, octaves, dB)
- Multi-channel port groups (e.g. stereo, 5.1 surround, ambisonics
* Embeddable GUIs in any toolkit, with support for a full plugin/UI split
(including network transparency in capable hosts)
* Ability to bundle any files (e.g. samples or impulses) with plugins
* Presets (bundled and/or user saved)
* Plugin state saving and restoring
* Host-managed logging
* Non-realtime plugin worker methods (simple and portable host-managed
* Message-based plugin communication, allowing plugins/UIs to have advanced
interfaces without host support or specifications getting in the way
* Transport awareness, both real time and tempo time (bars, beats, etc-.)

LV2 has graceful compatibility "baked in": for example, a simple amplifier
plugin might have audio in/out with a gain control, and function in any host.
The same plugin could have a fancy GUI and transport awareness which optionally
work in hosts that support these features. Conversely, hosts know not to load
plugins that require features it does not support.

See the specification index for complete documentation. If you are a host or
plugin author and need missing functionality, please file a ticket or let us
know your requirements on the mailing list. LV2 is a community project that
depends on your feedback to improve - unknown requirements are unmet
