General :: Create And Install All Relevant Font-metrics And Fontmaps Of A TrueType Font For (pdf)TeX?

Jul 9, 2010

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?

Jul 8, 2010

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 :: By Default Pango Is Choosing AR PL UMing CN As Font To Render Japanese Text When Current Font Doesn't Have Japanese Glyphs

May 4, 2010

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...

Fedora :: Upgrade To KDE 4.4 And "Configure Kmail" Displayed In The Default Font No In Console Font

Feb 25, 2010

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 :: Fonts With Pdf Files - Lines Remain Blank - Error: Couldn't Create A Font For 'Courier Bold'

Feb 23, 2011

I have a pdf file (nasm documentation) that used to be displayed perfectly with xpdf, but now all code example lines remain blank. On the terminal I get repeated lines such as:

Quote:
Error: Couldn't create a font for 'Courier Bold'
Error: Couldn't create a font for 'Courier'

I tried to figure out the problem... the same problem occurs with both evince and okular. However it does not occur when opening the same file under root (tested with xpdf), so it seems to be some permission problem. I tried searching on the error message but couldn't find a working solution.

Ubuntu :: Install A Specific Font From Mac OSX?

Mar 10, 2011

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.

Slackware :: Install Courier New Font In 13

Apr 8, 2010

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)

Debian :: Install Windows Font In Raspbian Wheezy

Mar 24, 2015

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?

Debian Multimedia :: Install Font With Better Unicode Support?

Mar 20, 2015

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.

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.3 Installation Fail At 90% (step Font Initialization)

Jul 28, 2010

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.

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 ?

General :: How Are The Font Sizes Calculated

Feb 12, 2010

We talk about 12pt, 14pt font sizes. Do those numbers represent physical size in some unit or number of pixels? I guess it is the former, because same font size looks different for different DPI values, but in what unit? Also a relevant question: does browsers like firefox and chromium use different system of font sizes, because to get the same physical size, I alwasy need to set larger values in firefox than in other applications. Setting dpi and resolution values using about:config has no effect.

General :: Possible To Change VIM Hardcopy Font?

May 30, 2011

When printing from VIM, is it possible to choose a font other than Courier 10 for the hard copy output? For example, the following commands produce the same postscript file:

:set printfont=Courier 10
:hardcopy > myfile.ps
OR
:set printfont=Courier 8
:hardcopy > myfile.ps
OR
:set printfont=Luxi Mono 8
:hardcopy > myfile.ps

It says in the help for printfont that the font NAME (i.e., the typeface) is ignored (which seems stupid, but at least they tell you that) but the SIZE is not. The part about the size not being ignored seems to be a lie. More importantly, is there a way to change the output typeface to something else?
