adding a font

Post#1 by AVArt » 17 Apr 2019, 19:46

I am trying to search the forum and the search function keeps timing out so I can't find a solution that I'm sure has been answered already. I am very new to working with Porteus/Linux and I've been tasked with creating an interactive display. The content has been created by another department and all I have to do is setup the Kiosk to go to the home page of the content. That was easy and is done and is great..... Until the content creators saw the Kiosk and one of the fonts they used isn't loaded into Porteus. Could someone please give me a step by step procedure to add a font to the software? I am running Chrome in Porteus 4.8 if that makes a difference.

Thanks for helping a newbie!

Hi AVArt,

Please remaster the ISO as per this doc:

You can find our font module here:

Please add your font to it and them add the module to the ISO.

Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.
