Debian :: LXAppearance And Changing Fonts?

Mar 30, 2010

I can't change fonts with lxappearance, it's always stuck on Helvetica 8 after I close lxappearance. I can't change from gtkrc-2.0 or gtkrc.mine either, it won't use the new font.

Debian Configuration :: Changing Fonts In GRUB2?

Aug 12, 2010

After removing a hard drive I (thought I)wasn't using, GRUB failed to load(turns out stage1 was on that drive) and it refused to install to a new drive(even after I kexec'd into the system - which was fun, considering the LiveCD used a different name for the hard drive). I finally threw in the towel and installed GRUB2, which worked after removing a second, incorrect root=. However, I can't find out how to switch the font from the fugly default to something that doesn't try to gauge my eyes out with a rusty spoon.

Debian Multimedia :: Disordered Non-alpabeticly List Of Existing Themes In Lxappearance

Jan 12, 2011

I have problems with a disordered non-alpabeticly list of existing themes in lxappearance. Googling gives a solution to use the stable version of lxapperance and pinning it to stable. This works great, but is there also a solution of using a alphabelictly sorted themes list in the testing (Squeeze) version of this program?

OpenSUSE :: Changing The Settings In The Fonts Menu?

Mar 15, 2011

Not sure if the font by Default in opensuse 11.4 is intended to look "thin" but I want to make it look "standard" I tried setting changing the settings in the fonts menu but its not what I was searching for. How do I make the system font more "round and smooth". If anyone has tried the distro Ubuntu or Fedora, the font is more "plain."

Slackware :: Changing KDE Fonts Without The KDE Control Center?

Nov 16, 2009

when running XFCE, changing the font in qtconfig fails to change fonts in KDE apps such as ktorrent and koffice. This is rather annoying because default KDE fonts are excessively large and blurry on my monitor. Is there any way to force KDE apps to obey qtconfig settings?

Ubuntu :: Messed Up Colors And Fonts After Changing Monitor Preferences?

Jan 25, 2011

I have this weird problem; When I change the monitor preferences in the 'System > Preferences > Monitors' dialog, the colors and fonts of much of the text on the screen get messed up. The issue is best seen in the attached figure. All applications seems to run as normal, and there is no other trouble than the visual.

It happens in the moment i hit apply. It happens every single time. The desired changes is applied as they should. To turn my PC back to normal I have to restart it, and then it will start again with the new settings without any problems at all.

The problem occurred for the first time yesterday. I think it may have to do with some updates (advised updates through Update Manager) I have done lately (I tend to mindlessly install most updates). Other than that I have no idea what is causing the problem.

Have anybody experienced a similar problem? Does anybody have a clue of what is causing it, and what I can do to solve the problem? PS: I am running Ubuntu 10.10 32bit on a 5 year old Dell Inspiron 630m.

Ubuntu :: Over 1500 Fonts - Move Them To My /usr/share/fonts Folder

Jul 3, 2011

I have a folder with over 1500 fonts, I would like to move them to my /usr/share/fonts folder so that they can be used. Some are from Windows, some are just random extras. I've installed the msttcorefonts, but there are quite a few missing that make some wen pages look different.

How can I go about putting the fonts from my folder, into the appropriate /usr/share/fonts folder to be used? And how can I move them all? I can't drag and drop them, and mv FONT_NAME /usr/share/fonts for all of them will take a month or two. Is there a way to elevate my self to be able to just drag and drop them all? And which folder would they need to go into for them to be used in Chrome and Firefox?

OpenSUSE :: 3.2 Fonts Get Loaded To /usr/local/share/fonts?

Feb 23, 2010

I have just installed openSUSE 11.2 X86_64 on my laptop, I then used KDE to install lots of type 1 fonts for my printer. These get loaded to /usr/local/share/fonts/...These installed fonts are visible to KDE (KWRITE) and GIMP so I assume that the installation was O.K. When I start openOFFICE writer I do not see these fonts. The font selection appears to be the fonts located under /usr/share/fonts. I have not tried other ooo3 components. I assume that they are not going to see the fonts either.

I have searched google and it appears that /usr/local/share/fonts is the correct location for non-packaged fonts. Has anybody any idea what is wrong? I think I could move all the fonts to /usr/share/fonts and ooo3 would work but this seems to break the installation directory structure. I have considered symlinks but I don't like the idea of defining a font twice to Linux and creating the syslinks is more work than reinstalling the fonts if they are lost

Debian :: Why Don't Have Fonts Have Size 19

Dec 20, 2010

I was trying to adjust my gnome-terminal actually. Opened up Gnome-terminal and went to Edit > Profile Preferences > General Tab.In the General Tab there is a font option. Tried to change font-sizes but saw there is only 18, 20 and other sizes but no 19. I also saw similar things in many other fonts. To investigate further I tried same and similar fonts in Gedit as well i.e. go to Gedit > Edit > Preferences > Font and Colors and clicked on Editor Font and cycled through almost all the fonts that are on my system. I didn't see it either of them to give an option of 19. In fact saw quite a few odd sizes missing.So is this a short-coming in GNOME or something else. Is it something to do with the resolution perhaps - the current resolution is fixed at 1024*768 .

Debian :: Unable To Install Fonts

Aug 22, 2011

I have just undertaken my first install of debian after a couple years of using ubuntu. I used netinstall and have made a minimal install with wheezy and lxde. I am trying to install the ubuntu-font-family because it is so pretty!

1. I tried downloading the .ttf files, extracting them to a directory and using the program 'font-manager' (which I had used on ubuntu previously,) and it says they are installed but I can not access the font from any program.
2. I tried using fontmatrix, another graphical program. Same thing.
3. I tried installing the .deb package for the fonts after downloading from the ubuntu repos. still cannot use them. (but I can physically see the font files in the folder, same as with above methods.)3. i tried manually installing the fonts via the command fc-cache -f -v (after placing them in /usr/share/fonts, /usr/local/share/fonts, and ~/.fonts [none of which worked.]) After running the command 'fc-cache -f -v,' I run the command 'fc-list' and the fonts are still not in the list.

Debian Multimedia :: Fonts In Iceweael 4.0?

May 2, 2011

Just installed Iceweasel 4.0 and i must say, the fonts really looks shit See screenshot: [URL]... I thought this would be fixed with a newer version of libcairo but it seems that it is not that import to fix this shitty font. It's giving me a headache. To be honest, the fonts looks much better in Ubuntu (not that i now go back to Ubuntu for that reason). All the topics spent on the libcairo issue are mostly a waste of time imho if it is not fixed at the source. Well, i don't wanna nag about it. I only wonder, is there a good solution to fix it and help me get rid of my headache (besides taking an aspirin).

Debian :: Improve Fonts In Squeeze ?

Apr 3, 2011

I've installed Squeeze. I saved a .fonts.conf file that helped to improve fonts some. I would like to know what others do to improve fonts. I found the fonts sometimes a little thin. I've heard of compiling freetype with bytecode interpreter enabled. Is this necessary on Squeeze? If this would make an improvement what would I need to do?

Debian Configuration :: How To Install Ttf Fonts In 8.0 With XFCE4

Jan 16, 2016

I have problem to install my fonts in my Debian. I used this guide but it not worked for me, i just could right click on the font and install it with font viewer.

Ubuntu Linux searches for fonts in specific locations as listed in the /etc/fonts/fonts.conf file.

A look at the contents of /etc/fonts/fonts.conf file indicates the following directories which are searched by Ubuntu Linux for fonts. They are :


So if you want to install new fonts in Ubuntu Linux or Debian for that matter, you can copy the fonts to any one of the 4 directories listed above.

The last directory ~/.fonts is a local hidden directory in every user’s Home folder. If you install the new fonts in this directory, the fonts will be available only for the person logged into that particular user account.

If you want your new fonts to be available system wide, to all users, then you should install them in any one of the first three directories listed above.

Once all your fonts are copied to the specific font directories, you have to make Ubuntu Linux aware of the new fonts so that it can make use of them. This is done by running the following command in the console :

$ sudo fc-cache -f -v


sepanta@dhcppc1:~$ sudo fc-cache -f -v

/usr/share/fonts: caching, new cache contents: 120 fonts, 6 dirs
/usr/share/fonts/X11: caching, new cache contents: 0 fonts, 6 dirs
/usr/share/fonts/X11/100dpi: caching, new cache contents: 358 fonts, 0 dirs
/usr/share/fonts/X11/75dpi: caching, new cache contents: 358 fonts, 0 dirs
/usr/share/fonts/X11/Type1: caching, new cache contents: 8 fonts, 0 dirs

[Code] ...

Red are my fonts in two different folder.

Debian Configuration :: Fonts Are Present But Cannot Be Displayed

May 12, 2011

I originally installed Debian and configured it the way I want it without any problems. It was working perfectly and I was happy. I then tried openSuse. I did not like it and re-installed Debian five hours later. Now I have a strange problem. This is the third re-install. With the first two, after installing a few fonts the system says the fonts are present, but they cannot be displayed. I only get empty rectangles. The fonts are not available in office and there is no text at all on the internet. Only photographs and a few icons. This forum for example, only has lines separating the posts.

I do not know why there is a problem, because I am configuring the system the same as the first time; install scim and add a few fonts. The founts are not in packages, but I need them for some of the work I do in office. Since Debian uses this strange permissions system where the user is not considered the owner of his or her computer, I use gksu nautilus. I makes no difference if I leave the permissions of the fount folder as root or change it to me. I am completely at a loss. As I mentioned, I am doing the same thing I did the first time, so there should not be any problems.

Debian Multimedia :: VLC Fonts Can't Be Set With Qt4-qtconfig (Testing)

Feb 1, 2016

I've just set up an alternative testing installation starting from Jessie and I've instantly noticed that the appearance of VLC can't be set via the qt4-qtconfig application (as I've done so far in Wheezy and Jessie), in short VLC doens't respond at all to any setting changed in qtconfig .

Looking at the bug reports for qt4-qtconfig and particularly this one #564548 looks like there are indeed issues with qt4, and comment 17 states thatQt4 entered in "only security bugfixes" mode, so this won't be fixed.

Debian :: Display Of Fonts With Iceweasel And Claws

Some fonts or lettering produces gobble-di-gook rather than a proper display in both iceweasel and claws mail reader. Usually punctuation (like ") results in this. For instance, from the site Clean Debian Etch Install, I get the following:

Code: The �€˜Choose country or region�€™ screen will appear, select �€˜United States�€™ or your preferred country. I'm assuming the above should display as, Code: The "Choose country or region" screen will appear, select "United States" or your preferred country.
