I installed a few fonts lately simply by clicking on the file and hitting the install button in the window that opened.
Now, I wanted to uninstall a few of them.
As far as I know, the fonts should have gotten installed system wide, but they did not.
There are none of the newly installed fonts in /usr/share/fonts, and I have neither a ~/.fonts nor a /usr/local/share/fonts directory, which leaves me
I dual boot Windows 7 and Xubuntu 14.04 and have copied and pasted some fonts from Windows7 into a Fonts folder in my Xubuntu 14.04 /home/username/ directory. I have tried dragging and dropping the imported Fonts folder into the /usr/shared/fonts folder and that does not work. I can't seem to be able copy and paste the folder into the .../fonts folder.
I'll assume you wish to use a termsyn font. Using tamsyn with the following instructions would only require minor changes.Check the font paths with both of these commands. The outputs of both should include '/usr/share/fonts/local'.$ xset q | grep -A1 'Font'
$ grep /fonts /var/log/Xorg.0.logFor the XLFD versions of termsyn or termsynu to be used, the font files
Im sick of using font managers/ installers on my S4..
Tried extracting a .ttf file to system/fonts and changed permissions to rw-r-r to match the pre installed .ttf files, then restarted the device. The device didn't load the font in the settings upon reboot. Any ideas? Is there a command I need to push this file to system/fonts?
Can you show me how can I follow this instruction from Half-installed ttf-mscorefonts-installer?
My suggestion would be to copy the MS fonts in an USB drive from a Windows box and manually copy them into /home/matteo/.local/share/fonts.Open Nautilus (Files) then press CTRL+L and paste /home/matteo/.local/share (and press Enter) in the location bar.
I use a bitmap font for my terminal windows. In order for this to work, I need to enable bitmap fonts. In /etc/fonts/conf.d/ there's a symlink called 70-no-bitmaps.conf to the matching configuration file in /etc/fonts/conf.avail/. I delete this symlink and create one for the matching 80-yes-bitmaps.conf.
