Ubuntu :: Bitmap Fonts In WMFS Taskbar

Jan 23, 2011

I'm a newbie Linux user and would like to know how to get bitmap fonts in WMFS' taskbar without anti-aliasing.

So I guess what I want in simple terms is to get blurry fonts like this to become clean and sharp like this.

I was guessing that it had something to do with .fonts.conf and tried out a lot of different font configurations that I found online.

Fedora :: Enabling X11 Bitmap Fonts In GTK Applications?

May 29, 2010

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:

Section "Files"
FontPath "/usr/share/X11/fonts/misc"
/usr/share/X11/fonts/misc is symlinked in /etc/X11/fontpath.d

OpenSUSE :: (some) Bitmap Fonts Don't Work In KDE Konsole

Aug 27, 2010

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).

General :: Prevent Firefox From Using Bitmap Fonts At Certain Zoom Levels?

May 1, 2010

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?

Edit: Adding example code for my own reference.

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?

Debian :: Where Is Font WenQuanYi Bitmap Song

Apr 29, 2015

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:

[04/29/2015,10:46:36@~]$ uname -a
Linux debian 3.16.0-4-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.16.7-ckt9-3~deb8u1 (2015-04-24) x86_64 GNU/Linux
[04/29/2015,10:54:06@~]$ mate-about -v

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

Software :: EXT3-fserror: Inode Bitmap For Group 4 Not In Group

May 25, 2011

I've been tasked with fixing a Red Hat system that dies with a kernel panic during the boot stage:


EXT3-fserror (dev sda1): ext3_check_descriptors: Inode bitmap for group 4 not in group (block 67239937)!
EXT3-fs: group descriptors corrupted!
mount: error mounting /dev/root on /sysroot as ext3: Invalid argument

I can boot into a Rescue CD, but I'm a bit out of my element because I don't use EXT3 myself, and I've never had to repair a corrupted file system before.

Ubuntu :: No Taskbar/launcher In 11.04?

Jun 2, 2011

It seems as if I've really done myself in this time. I recently upgraded to 11.04 from 10.10.trouble (not showing titlebars after I had trie to enable the "desktop cube" feature) so I decided the best plan of action was to get rid of Compiz. That turned out to be a mistake. Now I have no launcher or taskbar, and since I'm somewhat, well, inept at this so far I have no idea how to get my desktop back in working order.e managed to install compiz and emerald once again, but I can't get to the startup application editor to make it run automatically. Is there a way to get the default desktop environment handler to kick back in?

Ubuntu :: Taskbar Switching On And Off In The Terminal

Jan 6, 2010

I am a new Ubuntu user (three months so far on Karmic amd64, and very happy with my new OS). I had to do a force shutdown after a system freeze (while viewing video on my tv - dual display - with vlc). Upon restart, I noticed the network connection icon missing from the taskbar; there was an empty "slot" between the evolution and sound icons so I figured the network icon was simply not appearing correctly.

I right clicked in that empty "slot" and chose to remove from taskbar with the intention of putting it back. After clicking remove, the taskbar started a cycle of constant disappear and reappear (about one second between each). The cycle is too fast to allow navigating in menus but I can access the terminal. Being new and all, I don't know how to configure the taskbar through the terminal... fix my taskbar in the terminal?

Ubuntu :: Taskbar Item Key Mapping

Mar 3, 2010

I am very very productive with the new Windows 7 taskbar. The ability to press Winkey + # to either:

1) Minimize that window if it is the window that currently has focus set to.
2) Restore the window the key combination is pressed but the window is not currently open. For example, if Firefox is the third tab across the bottom of the taskbar, and not currently open, I would like <Super> + 3 to restore this window for me, instead of having to do alt + tab, tab, tab, tab [OH! Now I finally got to it!]. I just work much faster with this convenient shortcut.

The Problems

1) I need to know how Ubuntu remembers the current location of an item on the taskbar. It must, as you are able to re-arrange items with a drag of the mouse. I need this to find out what item #, so when I press <Super> + num I can figure out what is the numth window across the bottom currently.
2) I need to know how to execute something like [psuedo-code for bash script]:[ie: How do I minimize? How do I check if a window is currently the focused window? How do I make it the current window?]

I am a programmer, I am willing to figure this out for myself at least partially, but how the hell do I find #1 without diving into thousands of lines of source? I could use some push in the right direction. I just switched to Ubuntu a month ago [from Windows, but I was very much a power-user and know my way around it well].

Ubuntu :: More Capabilities With Taskbar For Pidgin?

Take a look at the picture. 1 refers to the mail icon, which has pidgin in it (I couldn't screenshot while open for some reason), and 2 refers to the icon that can be clicked which has the capabilities to set "available, away, invisible, etc" and that type of thing. Problem is, I no longer use empathy, I use pidgin instant messenger. Can I use the #2 icon referred to in the picture to control my status for pidgin?
