Hello Font SIG,
I've been in touch with Chris Simpkins about his Hack font, it looks really
great for code and I use it for my konsole sessions.
Aside from submitting a .spec for review, anyone want to provide comments? Or
if someone is packaging this already? :)
I've added the file triggers for fonts in rawhide to update the cache
and dropped the call of fc-cache in %post/un from fontpackages. we may
need to rebuild all of font packages eventually though, please let me
know if you see any issues about it.
This is a request for help which might be font-related.
I switched to Fedora recently after finding Fedora 22 was the only Linux
distribution that properly supported one of our computer support
customer's Canon LBP-1210 laser printer (which is not supported by
Microsoft Windows 64-bit, so our customer switched from Microsoft
Windows to Fedora 22 64-bit.)
There is a problem with Libre Office on Linux, but not on Microsoft
Windows. If you open the attached PDF in LibreOffice Draw (to edit the
PDF), type runs out to the right of the document under Linux but
displays perfectly under Windows. Yet the PDF Viewer on Fedora 22
displays the same PDF properly.
I am running Libre Office 5.0.1 on Windows 10 Pro 64-bit in an Oracle VM
under Fedora 22 Linux, and Libre Office Draw displays the attached PDF
properly. But with Libre Office Draw on Fedora 22, type runs out the
right side of the document making edits almost impossible. The same
thing happened with the previous version of Libre Office, from which I
take it that this is a font display problem in Libre Office under Linux.
I installed Fedy and Windows fonts, but that did not help.
I'd like to be able to use Libre Office on Fedora without resorting to
running Windows 10, if possible. Is there a simple solution to this problem?
Quote from fedorahosted.org/liberation-fonts/ :
There are three sets: Sans (a substitute for Arial, Albany, Helvetica,
Nimbus Sans L, and Bitstream Vera Sans), Serif (a substitute for Times
New Roman, Thorndale, Nimbus Roman, and Bitstream Vera Serif) and Mono
(a substitute for Courier New, Cumberland, Courier, Nimbus Mono L, and
Bitstream Vera Sans Mono).
How can Mono substitute for both Courier New and Bitstream Vera Sans
Mono, when one has serif and the other not? It seems very like that set
of attributes that are the generic font names, serif, sans-serif,
cursive, fantasy, and monospace. They are only attributes, not disjoint
sets. Besides Courier New that has serifs and pitch, and Bitstream Vera
Sans Mono, which has pitch but not serifs, there is an old Selectric
typewriter face called Script 12 pitch, which is also cursive. "Serif"
and "sans-serif" are disjoint, and I would vouch for nothing with
"fantasy", but "monospaced" is not disjoint with three of them--is
"cursive" disjoint with "serif" and "sans-serif"?
