In Gimp, a Custom config xml string is used to rename some fonts in the
FcConfig object which are problematic with Pango.
Gimp supports plugins (and has several fundamental plugins, such as
saving to a PDF file), each plugin runs in its **own process**.
This means that any plugin (such as the Pdf export plugin) will get some
fonts wrong, due to not having the custom xml renaming string in its
Apart from sharing the xml string and doing the renaming on the FcConfig
object every time plugin which needs it is run, Is it possible to share
an FcConfig Object between several processes?
Thank you very much.
