I am trying to get the fonts in my wine programs in Arch to look as sharp as they are in #! but I don't know if I am missing a file. I am using infinality patches. Here's a screenshotOnly the actual programs fonts look blurry. The menu fonts and window decorations (or any fonts against the gray wine background) look normal.
I just installed my Windows fonts like I normally do(/usr/share/fonts/truetype/fonts). I did sudo fc-cache -f -v and restarted. When I logged on and went too Google there were no fonts on the page. I tried other websites such as this forum, Neowin and Bing. All didn't have fonts. FontyPython said "Font may be bad and cannot be drawn."
Oh great, I just did a complete new installation and just before making a backup I did the same thing again!
I copied a folder with fonts to /usr/share/fonts/newfonts, tried to use fc-cache and some other commands that were listed in a guide about installing fonts in firefox and one of them did not work and now Firefox does not have any fonts anymore.
Ubuntu comes with a few fonts, but the list is not really all that exhaustive. Certainly anyone doing any sort of creative work will eventually need to install additional fonts. There are thousands of free fonts available, although you might be mistaken that they are for Windows and MacOS only. This is not the case - installing fonts in Ubuntu is actually quite easy.
Did you see Ivan's font topic: http://crunchbang.org/forums/viewtopic.php?id=18249 ?After you installed the fonts, did you rebuild the font cache?BlackIvan wrote:If you want to install some new fonts, especially bitmap fonts from outside the repos put them under ~/.fonts or for system wide use under /usr/share/fonts.
I have spent many hours without success trying to find an example/printout of the fonts installed in linux. I have found new fonts, how to install fonts, how to build fonts,etc. What I am seeking is an example showing what each font looks like: This is Arial, This is impact. Is there such a thing or am I going to have to spend all day typing one out?
