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.

Slackware :: Get Rid Of Unicode Console Fonts And Keyboard Layout?

Nov 23, 2010

I use Slackware 13.1. So far I chose during the installation of the system lat2a-16.psfu.gz font and my applications worked well in console mode. Now the same applications with the same font display gridded rectangles instead of some diacritical characters. In /etc/rc.d/rc.font I have standard setfont -v lat2a-16.psfu.gz command:



setfont -v lat2a-16.psfu.gz

In /etc/rc.d/rc.keymap I have standard loadkeys command:



if [ -x /usr/bin/loadkeys ]; then /usr/bin/loadkeys; fi

Standard setfont -v lat2a-16.psfu.gz command reports for some reason loading of the Unicode mapping table:

# setfont -v lat2a-16.psfu.gz


Loading 256-char 8x16 font from file /usr/share/kbd/consolefonts/lat2a-16.psfu.gz
Loading Unicode mapping table...


I examined /etc/rc.d directory but I didn�t find the setting switching the console to the Unicode mode. The same with env and set commands outputs. I tried to overwrite Slackware 13.1 /usr/share/kbd/consolefonts/lat2a-16.psfu.gz with lat2a-16.psfu.gz file provided in kbd packages from Slackware 12.2 and 11.0 but the results were the same. I suppose the problem is caused by improper handling of the system settings by the kernel but I�m not can I get rid of Unicode console font and keyboard layout and come back to ISO-8859-2 font and keyboard?

Ubuntu Installation :: Openoffice / Firefox Fail Their Checksum

Oct 28, 2010

Using a 10.04 LTS installation disc, fresh are my install Firefox, multiple software, and the software updater thing did not work. Figured maybe I messed something up. I installed 10.04 LTS about 6 times from scratch, no other OS on the system. They all had issues loading software, I click on whatever it goes to launch and nothing ever comes up. I started doing updates through the command prompt using

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

Then multiple packages broke. Tried sudo apt-get -f install but I keep getting an error that openoffice and firefox fail their checksum. Click on upgrade by 10.10 version gives me the screen that says are you sure, with all the information for the distro and then brings up a window that says download 2 out of 2 and it also crashes. So I figured alright, maybe the CD version I have is messed up. I downloaded the 10.10 iso image and burned it three times. Two of my live cds take me boot me to the purple ubuntu starting screen but nothing is displayed except for a little icon with a keyboard and the disabled person at the bottom. Then my computer reboots it does that continuously.

Ubuntu :: OpenOffice Not Recognizing Fonts Activated By FontMatrix?

Jan 17, 2010

I activated a bunch of fonts through FontMatrix, which is a font manager I installed from the Ubuntu Software Center. The Font's were then available to me in inkscape, and a bunch of other programs. Now however I wanted to use some of those fonts in OpenOffice Impress (Presentation), but OpenOffice didn't seem to list the fonts.

Does anyone know how I can solve this. I'm assuming that one of two things is happening. Either OOo is not following the symlinks that are present in the .fontmatrix directory, or that openoffice is hard coded to not read fonts from any directory other than .fonts.

Slackware :: Poor Quality Fonts In OpenOffice Menus

Mar 23, 2011

I'm running -current (13.37) 32 bit and have installed OpenOffice 3.2.1. The problem is the menu fonts in OpenOffice which look very thin and are not smooth. All other application fonts look very good. When I had this same version of OpenOffice installed on Slackware 12.2 I did not see this problem.In OpenOffice I have ticked the option to use system font for user interface but this doesn't seem to have any effect. I've also ticked the screen font anti aliasing option because the fonts look worse when this is not ticked. My KDE system font is DejaVu Sans, the same as it was on Slackware 12.2.

My OpenOffice package was built using a script written by Robby Workman which I think I got from his web site a long time ago. It takes the rpms and creates a Slackware package.

Ubuntu :: Fonts Gone All Funny In Opera Web Browser

Aug 10, 2011

Today I added more fonts to ~/.fonts directory. I launched Opera and the fonts are gone funny [image attached]. I don't have this problem in Firefox of Google Chrome/Chromium. I changed fonts in Opera >> Preferences but to no avail. Also I deleted .opera directory. No joy. The only solution I've found is to delete .fonts directory (but I want those fonts for other applications).

Software :: Setting The OpenOffice Default Browser?

Sep 13, 2010

I installed google-chrome and configured it as my default browser in my desktop "Preferred applications" configuration app, and in update-alternatives --config x-www-browser. I also exported the BROWSER variable to be = /opt/google/chrome/google-chrome (logged out and then logged in again). Although, If I open a XLS file with some links inside (OpenOffice 3.2.0) it opens links in firefox instead of google chrome. I surfed across all options in Tools->Options and there is nothing to set or change the default browser.

General :: Browser Fonts Have Messed Up Anti Aliasing In Ubuntu 10.04 / Fix This?

Jun 30, 2010

After years of developing on Windows (.NET) I kept hearing about all these new kids on the block using Ruby and Python. Since I wanted to try them I thought it would be nice to check out Linux at the same time. I heard a lot about Ubuntu so I am running Ubuntu 10.04 with VMware.

Everything worked supprisingly well and I didn't have any big problems until I tried browsing some webpages with Ubuntu. It feels like I am browsing the web without my glasses or that I am back on my old CRT monitor.

Example 1

This is Windows Chrome vs Ubuntu Chrome. As you can see the Linux version is a little more blurry and the AA isn't that crisp. I did search Google a bit and found a lot of posts that said to edit the fonts.conf file but that doesn't seem to change anything. I also tried changing the rendering modes (Monochrome, Best shapes, Best contrast and Subpixel smoothing) but that didn't help either.

Since I might be doing some web development with Linux in the future it's fairly important to me that the fonts look the same as in Windows.

Example 2

I'm not sure that this example has anything to do with AA - it seems that the font is just smaller on Linux.

Aug 2, 2010

i just updated from karmic 9.10 to lucid 10.04 using the online upgrade option. so far everything is working great. the only issues i am having seem to involve firefox. when i visit videos i get the message "your browser is no longer supported. please upgrade to a modern browser." i am running 3.6 "canonical" so it is "modern". i am able to watch videos after i close the message. it's just an annoyance to get this message every time i view a video.

Fedora :: Some Of The Arial Fonts Look Not Right In Firefox 3.5?

Nov 13, 2009

I've installed Arial fonts as per this package:msttcore-fonts-2.0-3.noarch.rpmut why do some of the Arial fonts look not right in Firefox 3.5? It seems that Arial 10pt bold is the worst, with large spacing between the letters.In Ubuntu, using that same RPM and the same version of Firefox, the fonts look fine.I have two screen shots you can click on:1) Fedora 12 beta:Ubuntu 9.04:irefox-ubuntu.gifLook at the top left corner, "Jamieson Cottages by the River" - it's almost like the Arial 10pt bold is double spaced in Fedora.Whereas in Ubuntu, things look much better in terms of letter spacing.

Fedora :: Block Fonts In Firefox?

Aug 30, 2011

I went ahead and installed msttcorefonts because I need them for college work. However, when I have them installed, a few sites here and there like Facebook will use the font, but it'll be fuzzy, which is the complete opposite of what the free fonts did for me. I've thought about whether it would be possible to block those fonts in Firefox or only make them available in Libreoffice (the only place where I even need them), but there doesn't seem to be a way to do so.

Ubuntu :: Making Firefox 3.6 Fonts Look Like IE7 Or IE8

Jan 29, 2010

I'm coming from windows and now I've switched to ubuntu. I find firefox 3.5 (and now 3.6) very hard to read. I'd like to have the same font rendering on my ubuntu than on my windows xp, using internet explorer with cleartype enabled. I've searched A LOT on Internet, tested like 20 different .fonts.conf. However I still can't get what I want. Take a look at my screenshots :[URL]

On the left : ubuntu (Firefox 3.6) - on the right : XP (Internet Explorer I'd like to have the same fonts than on the right.

Picture "enabled.png" is the closest display I can get. But it's still not perfect.
I took the .fonts.conf from this site : [URL]

I've also tried the fonts from the site [URL]Look here : [URL](this one is different : IE8 is on the left)

My fonts config in firefox is the same than on windows (Times new roman, arial, courrier new). And of course I've installed the ttf mscorefonts package.

I don't say that IE is the best thing in the world It's only because I've used it a lot and now it's hard to browse sites with different fonts.
