[solved] how to install new font

Post#1 by cchuang » 18 Jul 2011, 01:11

As title: we can install ttf fonts into system by [Install font]. However, is it possible to auto- installed font to system while activating xzm , including font?

Thanks in advance

hi cchuang,
"is it possible to auto- installed font to system while activating xzm , including font?"
hmmm... not sure but restarting Xorg serever may be required.
will definitely dig into this request - could you provide a sample module containing a font?

Cheers

Dear fanthom:

Here could find some fonts to test:

http://diffusion.cgu.edu.tw/ftp/porteus/32bit/util/

jsmath-fonts.xzm (for Math Symbols)
odosung-1.6.xzm (Chinese fonts)
ttf-fonts.xzm (Gnome and Window core font in sourceforget)

Thanks in advance

@cchuang
i need to admit that i'm still confused a little with font installation under Slackware (and probably all linuxes). as per /etc/fonts/font.conf seems that

Code: Select all

/usr/share/fonts/OTF
/usr/share/fonts/TTF
/usr/share/fonts/Type1
/usr/share/fonts/Speedo
/usr/share/fonts/cyrillic
/usr/share/fonts/misc
~/.fonts
are monitored all the time so if you remaster your modules and put all fonts in /usr/share/fonts/misc/your_font_folder they will be found automatically by the apps (sometimes restart of application may be necessary).
let me know in case of further troubles.
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.

Thanks,

put fonts in one of the directories solves the problem.
