Re: Black Ivan's Font Task Force

@Crvena Zvezda, thanks for this post! May I add that there are two Chinese fonts which I prefer over uming and ukai:

ttf-wqy-zenhei 
ttf-wqy-microhei

Re: Black Ivan's Font Task Force

Ivan, thinking of condensing this into a wiki page some time?

I'd just like to add a suggested font: ttf-vlgothic for Japanese. It's very nice looking for alphabet too, and I prefer it to kochi. My default font.

Re: Black Ivan's Font Task Force

^ I posted it already too: fonts-vlgothic has to be the same. Somehow on my Sid install they changed some names of the fonts even though they are the same.

You mean to include that in the #! Wiki, why not.

Re: Black Ivan's Font Task Force

I meant to put your Fonts Guide in the #! wiki, yes.

...maybe wait a few days to see if anyone has any more suggestions to include...

Re: Black Ivan's Font Task Force

Really nice guide!

Just one small thing: you mentioned Nimbus Sans L in the Freetype Fonts section, but I can't seem to find that in my repos (I'm on Sid at the moment) - all the others are present, though.

Re: Black Ivan's Font Task Force

^ You mean when you see that boxes e.g. with Japanese fonts, with that font you could read it?

Re: Black Ivan's Font Task Force

Wow huge list...thank you very very much!!!

Just another thing, a doubt that I always had: does installing a lot of font have some impact on system performace? Thanks

Re: Black Ivan's Font Task Force

^ Why should fonts have an impact on system performance? smile Never heard about.

And to more bitmap fonts, of course Montecarlo, then there is the quite popular Fixed. Artwiz fonts also. Now do not ask me where I found them all. Will try to edit the how-to, wow, such feedback here, great.

Google will also help. And I will post that after I finish my beer, @Daisuke makes great fonts and also improved Terminus variants etc. So, in some minutes/one hour you will see a link to his blog.
