General :: Ubuntu - Install The Helvetica Font?


I don't know too much about the licensing issues surrounding fonts, but I would like to install Helvetica on my machine for my own personal use. I haven't been able to find a whole lot about this on Google.There are a lot of Helvetica alternatives out there, but I want Helvetica itself.

Software :: Touchscreen - Calibrate SH Cannot Load Helvetica Font
I've installed in Lenny with the 2.6.26-2-686 kernel, the xorg-xserver-input-evouch package, I've edited the xorg.conf, as described in this howto [URL]. It works to the where I am trying to start the calibrate.sh script. When I start it, the X screen pops up, but in the console I get a message, that failed loading font '*-helvetica-*-12-*'. After that the calibration tool dies.

OpenSUSE :: 11.4 Upgrade - Cannot Find Adobe Helvetica Font
I recently upgrade from 11.3 to 11.4, KDE 4.6.1. I have /home on a separate partition and it was unchanged in the upgrade. If I open Personal Settings-Application Appearance-Fonts, one of my font choices is Adobe Helvetica. If I open Gimp, open a new file, I can select Adobe Helvetica as a font and insert text in my new file. If I open Inkscape (svg drawing application), I can select Adobe Helvetica as a font, text is inserted but when I reselect it for editing, the window indicates that the font is just Sans. (Inkscape has some font selection wierdness, but keep reading). If I open LibreOffice, Adobe Helvetica is NOT on the font list for selection.

If I run
Code:
fc-list |grep Adobe
Adobe Courier:style=Bold
Adobe Utopia:style=Italic
Adobe Times:style=Bold
Adobe Helvetica:style=Bold Oblique
Adobe New Century Schoolbook:style=Bold Italic
Adobe Utopia:style=Bold
Adobe Utopia:style=Regular
Adobe Helvetica:style=Oblique
Adobe Courier:style=Oblique
Adobe New Century Schoolbook:style=Italic
Adobe New Century Schoolbook:style=Bold
Adobe Utopia:style=Bold Italic
Adobe Times:style=Regular
Adobe Times:style=Bold Italic
Adobe Times:style=Italic
Adobe Helvetica:style=Bold
Adobe Helvetica:style=Regular
Adobe New Century Schoolbook:style=Regular
Adobe Courier:style=Regular
Adobe Courier:style=Bold Oblique

However, I cannot find any files named Adobe Helvetica or Helvetica in /usr/share/fonts/* and I am not really sure it is installed. My suspicion is that the upgrade process preserving /home has the system looking at some old information, and that gimp and Inkscape are doing font replacement, while LibreOffice is doing it's own thing. What is the best procedure to refresh the system info on what fonts really are loaded?

General :: Create And Install All Relevant Font-metrics And Fontmaps Of A TrueType Font For (pdf)TeX?
Essentially I have found this guide, but it is for miktex, i need a guide for texlive on Debian/Ubuntu which will not pollute dpkg installed texmf.

I'm interested in converting TrueType font to be usable in (pdf)(La)TeX.

All the power google turn up just stuff f relating how to install microsoft fonts or do stuf on MikTeX.

I CANNOT USE XeLaTeX!!! I use pstricks and the font must be available in plain TeX! Otherwise my document looks inconsistent!

General :: Missing Glyphs In Terminus Font - Setup A Fallback Font?
Most of my work happens in a terminal, so I need a clear, readable font. I've settled a while ago on Terminus [URL]..., which works wonders for me. I added XTerm*faceName : Terminus in my ~/.Xdefaults, and I do get the Terminus font. Unfortunately, a lot of Unicode glyphs are missing (mathematical symbols, greek and hebrew letters), displaying as little square blocks instead.

If I remove the faceName entry, the default configuration seems able to display most of the glyphs (including math, greek, hebrew, runic, and whatever else), but the default font is much harder to read.

A google search hints that it should be possible to use Terminus as the default font, and fallback to (an)other one(s) for missing glyphs, but provides no further explanation. I've seen documentation that recommends Bitstream Vera Sans as a fallback, but it lacks the glyphs I need too; I don't know how to identify the default font used by xterm either, I had a look at /usr/share/X11/app-defaults/XTerm, but all I can find are generic references to old pre-fontconfig font names.

Using Gentoo Linux, fontconfig and xterm are up to date, USEs trutype and unicode enabled, X.Org server 1.6.

Edit: I alternate between Ratpoison, Awesome and XMonad, without a desktop environment.

Ubuntu :: Twm: Unable To Open Fontset "-adobe-helvetica-bold-r-normal--*-120-*-*-*-*-*-*"
that's what i get on one of my 2 new lucid boxen when i try to run twm (1:1.0.4-2ubuntu2) inside vnc4server 4.1.1+xorg4.3.0-37ubuntu2). any idea how to fix this? the xfonts packages are installed, and no problem with twm on the console. and no problem with twm inside vnc4server on the other lucid box. both were installed via netboot (minimal), both were fleshed out with apt-get lubuntu-desktop, though there were presumably inconsequential differences, on the one that works fine:

Code:

apt-get install twm
apt-get install vnc4server xvnc4viewer
apt-get install lxde-core
apt-get install lubuntu-desktop

[code]....

Ubuntu :: Install A Specific Font From Mac OSX?
I received from a designer a zipped folder called "__MACOSX", and there are two font files, "._BCongress.scr" and "._BConNor".

How do I get these fonts installed?

I could not find any instructions on how to do this - I found the font converter Fondu, but it didn't seem to understand these file formats. I can't open them in Ubuntu Font Viewer either.

Ubuntu :: By Default Pango Is Choosing AR PL UMing CN As Font To Render Japanese Text When Current Font Doesn't Have Japanese Glyphs
Actually I want to log a bug but I don't really know what package to log it against. The problem is that by default Pango is choosing the AR PL UMing CN as the font to render Japanese text when the current font doesn't have Japanese glyphs. But AR PL UMing CN is a Chinese font, so Chinese glyphs for kanji characters (e.g., 覚) are displayed. This is jarring and confusing for Japanese readers.

This situation mostly arises when you have mixed English and Japanese text. Some applications (for instance Firefox) will allow you to select a font for Asian text. Thus if the text contains only Asian characters it will use the font you select, rather than what Pango would have selected. But if it is a mix of English and Japanese, you end up with the wrong glyphs.

Other environments (like gnome-terminal, or a gedit) have difficulties as well. Since the primary interface requires mono spaced roman characters you run into difficulty selecting fonts. Most Japanese fonts only have proportional roman characters. This means that if use a nice roman font and use Japanese text (for instance file names), you end up with Chinese glyphs. What I want is a mechanism that will work across all of Gnome for selecting the font I want to use for Chinese characters. That way I can choose either Japanese or Chinese glyphs.

I realize this is low priority. It only bugs me a little, but many of my Japanese colleagues are put off from using Ubuntu because they are confused by the Chinese glyphs that pop up on my screen from time to time. As I said, I'd like to file a bug, but I'm not sure against what package...

Slackware :: Install Courier New Font In 13
I want to use Courier New font in my gvim editor. I am using Slackware 13.In my present .gvimrc i have:-
set gfn=Bitstream Vera Sans Mono 13

But now i wish to change the font to Courier New. From what i have read this is a Microsoft font, so is there a way that i could get it into Slackware 13?

I found out that an installation of Redhat already has that font and when i do set gfn=Courier New 13 in my .gvimrc in Redhat, the fonts are available(which is not so in Slackware 13)

Fedora :: Upgrade To KDE 4.4 And "Configure Kmail" Displayed In The Default Font No In Console Font
In all previous versions of KDE I had Console8x16 set as KDE font for all cases (Settings->Appearance->Fonts). After tonight upgrade, this (only!) font is not working. I can see it in font manager, I can set it in ...Appearance->Fonts, but actually remains default font. Two of about 30 attempts somehow (can not reproduce) succeeded to set "console 12" font, but it disappeared after restart.

1. What can be the problem in 4.4?
2. In /usr/share/fonts tere are 3 files named console8x16.pcf, console8x8.pcf and console9x15.pcf, but in the font list in Appearance->Fonts I can see only 2 - one named "Console" (seems to be 8x16 and "console" (8x8). File 9x15 does not appear at all. Why?

Last results of attempts: cannot use console font in part of areas, while part works OK. For example: kdevelop editor, kmail message body text works OK. But kmail other parts - does not. The most interesting is that although setting the kmail body message text to console displays the message body text correctly (with console font), but the example message in "Configure kmail" dialogue "The Quick Brown Fox Jumps Over The Lazy Dog" is displayed in the default font, as if there is no console font!

Debian :: Install Any Package To Make Font Smoothing Better ?
I am pretty new to GNU/Linux. I use Mint but want to use Debian. The problem is, Debian has worse font smoothing. Ubuntu's smoothing is great! Is there any possibility to simply install any package on Debian stable to make Debian's font smoothing exactly as it is in Ubuntu?

OpenSUSE Install :: Extra Large Font During Startup & Shutdown?
Running Opensuse 11.4 (but had same problem on 11.3). During startup and shutdown, the text messages are displayed using a very large font (characters are > 1 cm high). How can I specify the font and font size it uses ? Presumably it is doing a bad job of detecting the monitor (its a Samsung SyncMaster P2250). Which config file contains a suitable entry, and what is the entry ?

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.3 Installation Fail At 90% (step Font Initialization)
I am installing from the scratch a 11.3 on a PC on which previously 11.1 did run flawlessly. (Athlon 3700 with 3GB ram and Asrock socket 939 mainboard. Graphics is Nvidia. The installation comes every time up to 90% when it arrives at "font initialization). No error message is displayed. The little "cursor wheel" is still turning but else, there is no activity.

DVD from an sha1 checked and MD5 doublechecked download was burned with lowest speed in K3b and verified by the same program post burn, with full success of every verification.
Tried to change DVD reader but does not change the result. Runs speedy up to that step.
