Ubuntu :: Certain Fonts Cause Greek Letters To Appear As Symbols

Sep 12, 2010

Some fonts cause some greek letters to appear as squares or symbols - while the rest appear correctly.

Is there any way to make all non-latin characters to use a font different than the one the latin characters use?

OpenSUSE :: Typing Greek Letters Instead Of English Letters

Dec 12, 2010

Recently I faced a problem in typing in English in OpenSuse 11.3.When I try to type in English it shows me Greek letter and worse than that I think it is really Greek (not only in font) because when I enter my passwords or try to type a command in terminal I get error,I tested with UK and USA and all other English languages and I still have this problem. I even do reset in my keyboard layout setting and in KDE setting but it didn't help.

General :: Keyboard Layout For Mathematical / Greek Symbols?

May 12, 2010

I've been wondering about this for a long time but never thought to ask: I do a lot of scientific work so there are many times it would be really handy to be able to type mathematical symbols or Greek letters which, for the most part, aren't part of the ASCII character set. Like "∞ ρ σ τ ω ∑ ... √ ∫ ≤ ≥ " and so on. Is there a keyboard layout (for Linux) that maps simple key combinations to these kinds of characters? (Assuming all the encoding and font issues are worked out properly) I know I could create one myself but it'd be a lot easier if someone's already done the work, or at least if there's a partial solution I could modify.

Programming :: 'nm' Lists All Symbols - Including Static Library Symbols?

Apr 5, 2010

By issuing the 'nm' command on shared library (internally using one static library), the functions exposed by static library is also being listed, Which allows to use internal functions which is of course not intended. I have one static library having A(), B() and C() functions. Creating one shared library which has function XYS() that is using A() and B() functions from Static library. While doing 'nm' on shared library, all the static library function are being listed.

Static Lib:

Ubuntu :: Greek Language Support

Oct 10, 2010

I see 10.10 manages languages like 10.04.

I am English but live in Greece and although "I get by" with Greek, I do not read it very well and certainly do not write it. Consequently, I need to have everything on my PC in English. No problem so far but I do need to enable writing in Greek on occasion as the missus and bairns are Greek and my favourite little translator, GWord, obviously needs it.

I installed Greek language support and this resulted in everything being in Greek and me having to talk the missus through getting it back in English (she has trouble with technical stuff, bless her).

Just enabling translation and/or fonts etc in Language Support has no effect whatsoever.

I just want to press Alt+Shift and type in Greek, Alt+Shift again to be back in English and see my GWord (running under Wine) displaying no gobbledegook!

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?

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

Ubuntu :: 9.10 - Colored Screen With Strange Symbols

Feb 13, 2010

I'm using Kubuntu 9.10 and I have a problem with my screen. I use the nvidia driver downloaded from the website, installed manually as I always do. I wanted to update it, but when I press ctr-alt-F1 to go to the console to stop kdm, I cannot see the usual black screen, but only a very strange blinking screen with lines and colours, strange symbols like $ & %. This happens for every F1 until F6, then F7 luckily brings me again on the graphical desktop.

I tried to install the drivers from the "Hardware drivers" manager in Kubuntu, but nothing changed. I don't know if it's an issue related to the kernel or to the driver. But I don't know how to update it without F1 console, and however it's a serious issue because I cannot do anything in case of desktop failure. The kernel is the last officially released (I don't use the proposed repos), that is 2.6.31-19.

General :: What Are The Symbols In VDT's Output

Feb 17, 2011

I've been messing with a curses-based disk check tool in Linux called VDT (visual disk test). It puts out a nice little chart on the screen as it's going, but I have no idea what each unit of output on the chart means. I've read the man page several times, but there doesn't seem to be any mention of the visual output.

For instance, right now I have a chart that looks like this during a read test. What do the o's and the Z mean?

Ubuntu :: PDF File Shows Math Symbols But Printer Does Not?

Jan 31, 2010

I have Ubuntu 9.10 installed and up to date.

I have an HP Laserjet 2200 connected via USB with 64MB of memory. When I print page 2 of this document (for example) [URL] the delta-symbol and minus-signs do not show up, although I see them in Adobe reader version 9.3.

I have tried several of the available drivers for the printer (including the "[recommended]" one) and none of them produce these symbols.

I'm guessing this is a font issue. I don't know how to show you what font stuff I have installed.

Ubuntu :: Xvfb And CutyCapt - Chinese Symbols Not Recognized

May 16, 2011

I use Linux * 2.6.18-164.10.1.el5.028stab067.4ent #1 SMP Fri Jan 15 03:06:15 MSK 2010 i686 build to configure xvfb + cutycapt, I need it to convert html to image. The package that I have already installed:

xfonts-100dpi xfonts-75dpi xfonts-scalable xfonts-cyrillic
libqt4-webkit libqt4-dev g++

It seems like it works, but there is one problem. It misses chinese symbols when converts html to image. I thought that it is encoding issue and rechecked all my conf related that and set default encoding up to es_US.UTF8.


I'm testing these on the 2 computer. local and my vds. They both have Ubuntu 10.04. On the local machine all works fine, but on the vds it doesn't take chinese symbols. Where can I find the difference between machines configurations? I suspect it depends with X server configuration.

Ubuntu :: Blocks Appear Instead Of Letters

Jan 31, 2011

When I started the PC like always, it started normal been having issues actually, every time I start up the PC it freezes when I put the password in and its going to the desktop and stuff, then I have to re-start it or it re-starts itself, or just go to where I have to type in the password again, and then it does it again after a while, after 3 or 4 times of that it goes to the desktop normally and works fine, but today it took some time, and after it finally loaded the panel was all odd, everything appeared in block letters, like when Mozilla can't recognize certain language it just shows you blocks, that appears, but I check the system, where images and all that, everything appears normal, it only seems to be the panel.
wondering if its that I need to re-install the panel, or something else, also this odd file appeared too, it says (invalid coding) next to it, when I go to upload an image or something the files there, I wonder if that has something to do, or maybe its just been there who knows (and the freezing part too), anyways, I'm new here so I don't really know if this place was the right place to post this up OTL theres a screenshot in an attachemnt thing (if I put it up, it would appear to big)
