I have installed xfonts-wqy in my newly installed Debian Jessie stable by using command
[04/29/2015,10:46:33@~]$ aptitude search xfonts-wqy
i xfonts-wqy - WenQuanYi Bitmap Song CJK font for X
But when I list the font, there is nothing about WenQuanYi Bitmap Song, as you can see here:
[04/29/2015,10:49:53@~]$ fc-list |grep WenQuanYi
/usr/share/fonts/truetype/wqy/wqy-microhei.ttc: WenQuanYi Micro Hei,文泉驛微米黑,文泉驿微米黑:style=Regular
/usr/share/fonts/truetype/wqy/wqy-zenhei.ttc: WenQuanYi Zen Hei,文泉驛正黑,文泉驿正黑:style=Regular
/usr/share/fonts/truetype/wqy/wqy-zenhei.ttc: WenQuanYi Zen Hei Sharp,文泉驛點陣正黑,文泉驿点阵正黑:style=Regular
/usr/share/fonts/truetype/wqy/wqy-zenhei.ttc: WenQuanYi Zen Hei Mono,文泉驛等寬正黑,文泉驿等宽正黑:style=Regular
/usr/share/fonts/truetype/wqy/wqy-microhei.ttc: WenQuanYi Micro Hei Mono,文泉驛等寬微米黑,文泉驿等宽微米黑:style=Regular
So, my question is: Where is the font WenQuanYi Bitmap Song? And how can I use this font?
I also tried to reinstall xfonts-wqy several times, but the problem is still there. Here is some information about my Debian Jessie:

I'm looking for some pointers on a method to "transfer" the song-playing from my laptop to my PC, both running ubuntu. The use case is: I'm home listening to some song on the laptop. Then I realize how crappy the speakers are. Here's what I do *now*:
1. Stop playback on the laptop 2. Get up, go to the PC, open the music player 3. Find the same song 4. Try to find the same point in the song 5. Stop playback on the laptop 6. Start playback on the PC (the PC has good speakers)
Of course now I'm dreaming of having a "button" I push that does all this all by itself. Can anyone give me some pointers?
As far as i know VLC is the best media player for linux bc it suppurts all file types. But there is one anoying problem - when i want to listen to song it opens VLC, but when i open another song it opens another new VLC window. And this problemug or whatever didnt apear in Windows version VLC player.
I'm having difficulty enabling X11 bitmap fonts for GTK apps in F13. From all I've read on this forum and elsewhere on the Internet, this normally just requires symlinking 70-yes-bitmaps.conf into /etc/fonts/conf.d, but I can't get this to work properly.
X11 bitmap fonts are available to X11. I have them working in xterms, but no GTK applications.
What I've tried so far:
- Symlinked /etc/fonts/conf.avail/70-yes-bitmaps.conf to /etc/fonts/conf.d
Manually added font path to xorg.conf to force it to be picked up:
Code: Section "Files" FontPath "/usr/share/X11/fonts/misc" EndSection /usr/share/X11/fonts/misc is symlinked in /etc/X11/fontpath.d
Although they are installed in /usr/share/fonts/misc, correctly scaled and aliased, jmk Neep bitmap fonts produce garbage in KDE konsole (available in the font list but obviously not found). They work great in Gnome, XFCE and any other X terminal (except maybe LXDE terminal !?). They are OK in openSUSE 11.2 and other Linux distros (Ubuntu, Fedora, etc).
I'm using Slackware 13.0. When Slackware starts to boot up, there is the picture of a Penguin displayed at the top section of the screen. How do I specify a different picture? Is it in some script that I can modify?
The Project is for writing a generic program which extracts list of applications that is running on Unix, and for each application, determine if it has a corresponding graphical UI interface, is so, the program should be able to grab the UI into a image bitmap. The program should be able to run in any Unix UI framework, such as CDE, KDE, X, Motif, et al.
In Firefox 3.6 on Ubuntu 9.10, certain sites seem to use bitmap fonts for any fixed-width fonts, but only at specific zoom levels. This site and other Stack Exchange sites are among the affected sites, and of course the default zoom level is affected. At unaffected zoom levels, I get the expected smooth curvy fonts. How can I make Firefox use the nice curvy smooth fonts at all zoom levels?
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.
Now I know that I could use "consolechar" command with option "f " to set other fonts temporarily. The problem for me now is that I had tried almost all of those fonts in directory /usr/share/consolefont/, but I could not find a suitable one, none of them are beautiful. So, I hope one can tell me how to get the fonts and how to set the font I like to be lasting.
i have LXDE 0.5.0.4 installed on top of GNOME under deb squeez, i notice slightly different shape and font hinting/rendering quality in both of them.i'm not sure if what im doing is right or wrong but since i cannot find the way to configure font settings in LXDE i try reconfiguring with sudo dpkg-reconfigure fontconfig-config still font rendering quality and shape under LXDE is different with one in GNOME, take a look at two screenshots below, both are using same font and size:
How everybody can view, the fonts is exaggeration big in my TV 32", this problem occurs in Gtk, because Opera look good and is Qt , I try changed Font Size, but fix one, other thing is damaged. also I try
After reinstalling Squeeze's base system, the console font is too small to read comfortably. I tried to pass the kernel parameter vga=0x303 without success. After init starts the font reverts to a very small font that I cannot read comfortably on my 17 inch TFT LCD monitor.
If I change the font-spec in Emacs to specify one of the avgWidth parameters (70 or 80), then Emacs displays the correct font. Note that with this spec, Emacs's choice matches what xfontsel displays.
With avgWidth 70:
With avgWidth 80:
Why Emacs is using the wrong font family when the avgWidth is set to "*". As I understand X font strings, using "*" should make it pick either 70 or 80, but it clearly isn't doing that. A "*" worked with wheezy, so I'm assuming the upgrade changed my font configuration, but I don't know what it might have changed.
I managed to install LibreOffice. I've only a little experience with Ubuntu and none at all with Debian.
My 1st project is relatively simple. Pro Screenwriting software can be kinda costly, a hundred & change, at least.
With expanding contests, YouTube & the like, writers interest has been growing; and these day most submissions are pdf not paper. (The BBC Writersroom is a fantastic resource, and even allows unsolicited submissions). [URL] ....
Some years ago, Alan Baird got an award from Sun Micro for developing a set of free format templates called Screenwright for Open Office. Including both US & A4, as well as radio, sitcom, theatre and movies; these have now been ported to Libre Office under Creative Commons usage. [URL] ....
I believe these should work well and fairly fast on the new Pi, as most spec scripts are vastly more white space than word count.
There is a minor problem tho, which first came up with 'New Courier' on Windows machines. The 'page per minute' rule is still important enough that the different line/page length spacing of 'Courier-like' fonts is unacceptable in a submission.
The standard Courier font can be had from [URL] ....
That font set is a zip file which should be extracted and then the 3 fonts are to be dragged into the Windows fonts directory.
So how exactly do I do that with Rasperian Wheezy? Do I extract on the Pi or on the windows machine? Are fonts like most documents, readable on any distro, or do they need to be converted somehow?
When trying to make my Xfce desktop in Debian 7 (wheezy) look the same way as in Xubuntu 12.04 (precise), I am able to (by copying some files from Xubuntu packages) make the fonts render the same way, set up the same desktop and icon themes etc and make everything look identical, with the exception of the fonts...
Since that, if I choose the font "Sans 10" for my desktop, in Debian - with all the same anti-aliasing options, and such, that I use in Xubuntu - the text looks smaller, everywhere, compared to Xubuntu.
So... How come this happens, if I have chosen the same font "Sans" with the same size "10"?
Below, are the different results, depending on the OS in question.
In Debian Xfce, I get this:
While, in Xubuntu, I get this:
I remember this same thing happening, once, when I was experimenting with setting up an Openbox desktop environment, on top of an Ubuntu 12.04 command line install, where, if I used LightDM, as the login manager, I would observe this same font size "reduction" (in, at least, some of the applications), with the theme I was trying to set up, while, if I used GDM, as the login manager, I would not observe this same font size reduction. (And, so, it seemed that some GTK library(?), being used by the GDM, prevented this from happening(?)...)
Also, I read somewhere, on the Internet, that Xubuntu builds Xfce on top of GNOME(?) (libraries, I guess)...
Could it be that, by installing some GTK library, the fonts will "return" to normal size? Or, do I have to configure something else, somewhere?
(P.S. - I've also tried choosing the size "11", in Debian Xfce - in case it's a matter of different values used, for the numbers, in each OS - but, if I do so, it only makes the text bigger than in Xubuntu, with the size "10"...)
