Fedora :: Make Browser - Firefox - Automatically Search And Install Missing Unicode Font?
Aug 23, 2010
Unfortunately far for all unicode characters can be displayed in Fedora by default, (much less than in M$ Wnd). There is a tool that aim to find and install missing fonts when an non-displayable character appears, but it starts mainly when I accidentally open non-text file in terminal and never when a web-page I open in Mozilla Firefox (or Konqueror) contains such kind of characters. So, I see a rectangle with hexadecimal number of character in it (or simply empty rectangle in case of Konqueror) and don't know if there is a easy way to see it by installing missing font automatically (or manually at last) for range of this character or a way to install complete font collection to display all unicode characters from all ranges.
Need info on installation procedure for Unicode fonts on RHEL 4? I want the unicode fonts to display the Marathi(Devnagri) pages in the screen. At present I am getting the unicode as square,square,etc.on my screen. I am using Firefox Version 18.104.22.168.
I'm running a Debian Wheezy system. There are a lot of characters I want to use from the U+1F*** set of characters. But when I use them or look them up in the character map, all I see is the square with the code inside. Is there some font package I can install from the repository that has better support for these characters?
E.g., when I am instant messaging my girlfriend, I like to use the HEAVY BLACK HEART character (❤, U+2764). But there are a whole bunch of other "romantic" characters that are listed but not actually displaying for me, like the KISS MARK (U+1F48B), which I would like to use. These characters apparently show up on her system, which is an android phone.
It seems there is a problem with Chromium with not clearing out some cache such that if you go from one site with a css file to another site with a similar named css file, the old css file remains - go to options and clear out all browser stuff and everything is okay.is there a way to automatically clear out settings when the browser is closed like the Firefox option to do this ?
After installing Linux Multimedia Studio the fonts on my firefox4 browser has slightly changed. I remember during the installation that it installed some fonts so maybe it has something to do with that.
The default font settings on my firefox has remained the same but it looks different than before. On certain websites like facebook the main font looks different. I uninstalled LMMS thinking it would bring back the default font settings but it hasnt.
Any ideas how I can bring it back to my default settings on firefox?
I have installed Xampp on Fedora 11. After that I have gone to Mozilla Firefox Browser and wrote [URL].. on the address bar but it is not supporting Xampp, when I opened Konqueror Browser and wrote [URL].. on the address bar it is supporting Xampp and showing everything of Xampp. Now, is there any way to make Mozilla Firefox Browser work for Xampp?
I use google search in the firefox address bar by pasting [url] in about:config > keyword.URL
But it automatically changes to "chrome://browser-region/locale/region.properties" in some hours or the next day and I cannot search using the address bar. I have to change it back again to make it work. This is really annoying.
Is it possible to locate the Firefox file that retains "Search" history (not particularly "Browser" history)?I have lost a hardcopy list of authors and titles of books/ebooks that I search the web for. However, most of the time when I would enter a name or title a drop down list would have that entry I wanted, and I could just click on it. That drop down list is what I am calling "Search" history.
Somehow I was able to see Opera, and could use the Search bar/box but I can't use it the same way for Firefox in Linux. Firefox is fine in Windows, but not in Linux, so I decided to delete it and install it again. But it doesn't work.
i a newbie at linux and i installed Fedora 14 with minimum services and software in order to install Dynamips/Dynagen (Cisco router emulator).when i try to install Cisco rpm -ivh dynamips-0.2.8RC2-1.i386.rpm file i get the following:
error: Failed dependencies: libc.so.6 is needed by dynamips-0.2.8RC2-1.i386 libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.0) is needed by dynamips-0.2.8RC2-1.i386
I've installed sinhala unicode support to my CentOS 5.4 machine, after that firefox able to render sinhala web pages well but browser title bar still doesn't showing sinhala letters. I've changed the default font in the browser to sinhala font but still have that problem.
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.
I've been Googling all day and cannot find the answer. I find all the "GUI" ways to do it through Gnome and KDE but I'm not using either...I have an EEE PC set to boot up automatically to openbox and want Firefox to start after that in a full screen openbox window.I've tried adding the firefox command to ~/.initrc but it won't execute. I tried the command in .profile. This brings up firefox on a black screen without openbox.Firefox comes up fine when executed from the openbox menu.
I have an asus pc, and its network hardware is not recognized by debian, the drivers are not even in the list provided during the installation process. I managed to download them from another pc, but if i try to make them and install them, i'm stucked because Make is not installed on debian (nor is sudo).So i need a connection to install the drivers that provide me a co0nnections..
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?
I'm having trouble getting the usual display in firefox as I had in fedora 12. Here is what my fedoraforum.org page looks like: By twohot at 2010-07-19
I suspect something is wrong with the interpretation of "sans, sans-serif, serif ... etc" within fedora but i don't know how to go about fixing it. I'd like to leave the default settings in firefox as this has been the case in previous releases.
I'm running Fedora 13 x86_64 on a Dell Precision Workstation with a Dell Flatscreen Monitor. My fonts render well everywhere, using Dejavu fonts, but in Firefox and Epiphany they have these terrible yellow outlines and jagged edges.Has anyone else seen this? I've only noticed it recently (since the upgrade to Fedora 13), but it also happens on a Fedora 12 machine at home.
I think since I updated to Fedora 15 my fonts in Firefox are really thin now. I'm using the same font settings in the new Firefox but I can't really read anything enymore, because the font is so thin.How can I change the font?Here is a similar question:[URL]
first of all I need to know how to install Mozilla Firefox from the browser. It should be easy, but it has this weird tar.bz thing. Why can't Mozilla be normal? It is extremely hard to get the latest builds. I don't even know what I had to wrestle through to get to 4.0.1, which is what I am on now. Tell me the super easy way. Mozilla is awful. Also, how can I get the new beta and aurora channel switcher? I believe I can only get it if I update to a newer version which is what I am trying to do now. It says to go to about and then click "change" which is not there. So Linux really shouldn't be this complicated and frustrating.
When I try to display a PDF file from within the Firefox browser, I get a screen that says "Click here to download plugin." When I click there, the plugin finder service runs and displays a message that says: "No suitable plugins were found".
How do I find and install the Firefox browser plugin that lets me display PDF files?
I installed Fedora Core 13 x86-64 from the installation DVD and picked the "Software Development" installation. I notice that the Applications->System Tools menu doesn't have "File Browser" on it.
Nautilus is installed, so I can create a launcher for it. I'm merely curious whether this is a change or bug in FC 13? Or should I suspect that I myself deleted the file browser launcher accidentally? The machine is a laptop and I find the mousepad awkward to use.
I'm new to fedora, and pretty new to Linux. I recently installed fedora and had to troubleshoot most problems with the drivers myself, before installing the system I searched for all the drivers in my computer so I could do it easily. After getting everything working in proper conditions, IE, wireless, and sound worked wonderfully, I was able to hear, and connect to aMSN and my wireless network. I didn't notice any problems until I actually started firefox to browse the web.
It couldn't connect to a host, or resolve it. It wouldn't work when it was wired, and wouldn't work wireless. I reinstalled it to see if it would work without me messing with anything and just connecting through ethernet, and still it didn't work, same problem. I wouldn't ask if I could find a site that had the same problem but I've been searching for about 2 hours. I'd like to use Fedora asap, and get rid of Ubuntu.
