From [[Wikipedia:Computer font|Wikipedia]]:
 +
:''A computer font (or font) is an electronic data file containing a set of glyphs, characters, or symbols such as dingbats.''
 +
 +
Note that certain font licenses may impose some legal limitations.
 +
 +
== 字型格式 ==
 +
 +
Most computer fonts used today are in either ''bitmap'' or ''outline'' data formats.
 +
;Bitmap fonts: Consist of a matrix of dots or pixels representing the image of each glyph in each face and size.
 +
;Outline or ''vector'' fonts: Use Bézier curves, drawing instructions and mathematical formulae to describe each glyph, which make the character outlines scalable to any size.
 +
 +
=== 常見副檔名 ===
 +
 +
* {{ic|bdf}} and {{ic|bdf.gz}} – bitmap fonts, ''b''itmap ''d''istribution ''f''ormat and gzip compressed {{ic|bdf}}
 +
* {{ic|pcf}} and {{ic|pcf.gz}} – bitmaps, ''p''ortable ''c''ompiled ''f''ont and gzip compressed {{ic|pcf}}
 +
* {{ic|psf}}, {{ic|psfu}}, {{ic|psf.gz}} and {{ic|psfu.gz}} – bitmaps, ''P''C ''s''creen ''f''ont, ''P''C ''s''creen ''f''ont ''U''nicode and the gzipped versions (not compatible with X.Org)
 +
* {{ic|pfa}} and {{ic|pfb}} – outline fonts, ''P''ostScript ''f''ont ''A''SCII and ''P''ostScript ''f''ont ''b''inary. PostScript fonts carry built-in printer instructions.
 +
* {{ic|ttf}} – outline, ''T''rue''T''ype ''f''ont. Originally designed as a replacement for the PostScript fonts.
 +
* {{ic|otf}} – outline, ''O''pen''T''ype ''f''ont. TrueType with PostScript typographic instructions.
 +
 +
For most purposes, the technical differences between TrueType and OpenType can be ignored, some fonts with a {{ic|ttf}} extension are actually OpenType fonts.
 +
 +
=== 其他格式 ===
 +
 +
The typesetting application, ''TeX,'' and its companion font software, ''Metafont,'' render characters using their own methods. Some of the file extensions used for fonts by these two programs are {{ic|*pk}}, {{ic|*gf}}, {{ic|mf}} and {{ic|vf}}.
 +
 +
''FontForge,'' a font editing application, can store fonts in its native text-based format, {{ic|sfd}}, ''s''pline ''f''ont ''d''atabase.
 +
 +
The [http://www.w3.org/TR/SVG/fonts.html SVG] format also has its own font description method.
 +
 +
== Installation ==
 +
 +
There are various methods for installing fonts.
 +
 +
=== Pacman ===
 +
 +
Fonts and font collections in the enabled repositories can be installed using [[Pacman|pacman]]. Available fonts may be found by using:
 +
$ pacman -Ss font
 +
Or to search for {{ic|ttf}} fonts only:
 +
$ pacman -Ss ttf
 +
 +
Some fonts like {{pkg|terminus-font}} are installed in {{ic|/usr/share/fonts/local}}, which is not added to the font path by default. By adding the following lines to {{ic|~/.xinitrc}}, the fonts can be used in X11:
 +
{{bc|
 +
xset +fp /usr/share/fonts/local
 +
xset fp rehash
 +
}}
 +
In case the first command causes the following error
 +
{{bc|
 +
$ xset +fp /usr/share/fonts/local/
 +
xset:  bad font path element (#0), possible causes are:
 +
    Directory does not exist or has wrong permissions
 +
    Directory missing fonts.dir
 +
    Incorrect font server address or syntax
 +
}}
 +
you'll have to run
 +
{{bc|
 +
# cd /usr/share/fonts/local;mkfontdir
 +
}}
 +
 +
=== 建立軟體包 ===
 +
 +
You should give pacman the ability to manage your fonts, which is done by creating an Arch package.  These can also be shared with the community in the [[AUR]].  Here is an example of how to create a basic package.  To learn more about building packages, read [[PKGBUILD]].
 +
 +
{{bc|<nowiki>
 +
pkgname=ttf-fontname
 +
pkgver=1.0
 +
pkgrel=1
 +
pkgdesc="custom fonts"
 +
arch=('any')
 +
depends=('fontconfig' 'xorg-font-utils')
 +
source=("http://someurl.org/$pkgname.tar.bz2")
 +
install=$pkgname.install
 +
 +
package() {
 +
  install -d "$pkgdir/usr/share/fonts/TTF"
 +
  cp -dpr --no-preserve=ownership "$srcdir/$pkgname/"*.ttf "$pkgdir/usr/share/fonts/TTF/"
 +
}
 +
</nowiki>}}
 +
 +
This PKGBUILD assumes the fonts are TrueType.  An install file ({{ic|ttf-fontname.install}}) will also need to be created to update the font cache:
 +
 +
{{bc|<nowiki>
 +
post_install() {
 +
  echo -n "Updating font cache... "
 +
  fc-cache -fs >/dev/null
 +
  mkfontscale /usr/share/fonts/TTF /usr/share/fonts/Type1
 +
  mkfontdir /usr/share/fonts/TTF /usr/share/fonts/Type1
 +
  echo "done"
 +
}
 +
 +
post_upgrade() {
 +
  post_install
 +
}
 +
 +
post_remove() {
 +
  post_install
 +
}
 +
</nowiki>}}
 +
 +
For a more convenient package creation from ttf-fonts you can also use {{AUR|makefontpkg}} from the [[AUR]].
 +
 +
=== 手動安裝 ===
 +
 +
The recommended way of adding fonts that are not in the repositories to your system is described in [[#Creating a package]].  This gives pacman the ability to remove or update them at a later time.  Fonts can alternately be installed manually as well.
 +
 +
To install fonts system-wide (available for all users), move the folder to the {{ic|/usr/share/fonts/}} directory.  To install fonts for only a single user, use {{ic|~/.fonts/}} instead.
 +
 +
For Xserver to load fonts directly (as opposed to the use of a ''font server'') the directory for your newly added font must be added with a FontPath entry.  This entry is located in the ''Files'' section [[Xorg#Configuration|of your Xorg configuration file]] (e.g. {{ic|/etc/X11/xorg.conf}} or {{ic|/etc/xorg.conf}}). See [[#Fonts with X.Org]] for more detail.
 +
 +
Then update the fontconfig font cache:
 +
 +
$ fc-cache -vf
 +
 +
=== 手動安裝:進階方式 ===
 +
 +
Manual installation and maintenance of your font resources may be especially useful if your collection is more specialized, e.g. if you use commercial fonts,
 +
if you use fonts in different formats, if you often install and remove font files, or if you just feel you need more control and better access than offered by
 +
the package manager. There are numerous benefits to such an approach:
 +
 +
* You can avoid installation of multiple copies of the same family in different versions and formats (one of the most common reasons for rendering issues).
 +
* You can use multiple and non-standard physical sources of font files (e.g. an additional hard drive, a separate partition).
 +
* You can avoid relying on huge and cryptic local font sources which possibly contain 5 families you need and 55 you don't need (TeX Live & {{ic|09-texlive-fonts.conf}}, random font collections from the AUR, etc).
 +
* You can avoid rendering issues because your fontconfig settings were tuned to a different format but the one installed in your system.
 +
* You can quickly verify which families in which format(s) are present in the system and available for applications by visually inspecting the content of the main font directory (as a result, you don't need sophisticated and heavy-on-resources font management applications: {{Pkg|gtk2fontsel}} and basic CLI tools like {{ic|fc-query}} from {{Pkg|fontconfig}} package will do the job even better and faster).
 +
* When you install or upgrade a single font, the same version will be available for all applications, including LaTeX related software.
 +
* If necessary, you can quickly enable / disable a particular family because you know where exactly it can be found (useful for debugging).
 +
* You don't need to worry about redundant {{ic|/etc/fonts/conf.avail/nn-foo.conf}} fontconfig files, potentially conflicting with your rendering settings (especially when you are using a [[Font_Configuration#Patched_packages|customized font configuration and patched libraries]]).
 +
* In the long run, you save time needed to resolve issues and eliminate conflicts caused by careless use of the package manager.
 +
 +
In practical terms, there are at least a few ways to achieve this, which, if necessary, can be adopted by any package manager. The one described below has
 +
proven to be very efficient and secure even with large font collections.
 +
 +
* We are going to separate font source locations (e.g. {{ic|/usr/share/fonts.avail}}: this is where our fonts will be stored) from a directory containing symbolic links to the families in use ({{ic|/usr/share/fonts}}).
 +
 +
* Each family is going to be located in a separate, clearly named subdirectory. The naming convention should be consistent and unambiguous, for instance:
 +
 +
{{bc|<nowiki>
 +
<ttf|otf|t1>-<optional_global_group_or_foundry_name>-<font_family_name>
 +
</nowiki>}}
 +
 +
This way the content of the source directory will look like this:
 +
 +
{{bc|<nowiki>
 +
$ ls /usr/share/fonts.avail
 +
 +
/usr/share/fonts.avail/otf-heuristica
 +
/usr/share/fonts.avail/ttf-liberation
 +
/usr/share/fonts.avail/ttf-ms-arial
 +
...
 +
</nowiki>}}
 +
 +
* We are not going to touch TeX Live font directories to avoid issues with LaTeX software. Instead, since we can use multiple locations, we will create symlinks in {{ic|/usr/share/fonts}}, giving applications access to particular families:
 +
 +
{{bc|<nowiki>
 +
# cd /usr/share/fonts
 +
# ln -s ../fonts.avail/otf-heuristica .
 +
# ln -s /opt/texlive/texmf-dist/fonts/truetype/public/opensans ttf-texlive-open.sans
 +
</nowiki>}}
 +
 +
The result:
 +
 +
{{bc|<nowiki>
 +
$ ls /usr/share/fonts
 +
 +
ttf-liberation        -> ..fonts.avail/ttf-liberation
 +
ttf-ms-arial          -> ..fonts.avail/ttf-ms-arial
 +
otf-heuristica        -> ..fonts.avail/otf-heuristica
 +
otf-texlive-tex.gyre  -> /opt/texlive/texmf-dist/fonts/opentype/public/tex-gyre
 +
ttf-texlive-open.sans -> /opt/texlive/texmf-dist/fonts/truetype/public/opensans
 +
...
 +
</nowiki>}}
 +
 +
Finally, you may want to run the usual:
 +
 +
{{bc|<nowiki>
 +
# fc-cache && mkfontscale && mkfontdir
 +
</nowiki>}}
 +
 +
A similar approach can be found in [[TeX_Live|TeX Live]] Wiki article, but it's way simpler and describes a per-user scenario rather than a global implementation.
 +
 +
=== 舊版應用程式 ===
 +
 +
With older applications that do not support fontconfig (e.g. GTK+ 1.x applications, and {{ic|xfontsel}}) the index will need to be created in the font directory:
 +
 +
$ mkfontscale
 +
$ mkfontdir
 +
 +
Or to include more than one folder with one command:
 +
 +
$ for dir in /font/dir1/ /font/dir2/; do xset +fp $dir; done && xset fp rehash
 +
 +
At times the X server may fail to load the fonts directory and you will need to rescan all the {{ic|fonts.dir}} files:
 +
 +
# xset +fp /usr/share/fonts/misc # Inform the X server of new directories
 +
# xset fp rehash                # Forces a new rescan
 +
 +
To check that the font(s) is included:
 +
 +
$ xlsfonts | grep fontname
 +
 +
=== Pango 警告訊息 ===
 +
When [http://www.pango.org/ Pango] is in use on your system it will read from [http://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Software/fontconfig fontconfig] to sort out where to source fonts.
 +
 +
(process:5741): Pango-WARNING **: failed to choose a font, expect ugly output. engine-type='PangoRenderFc', script='common'
 +
(process:5741): Pango-WARNING **: failed to choose a font, expect ugly output. engine-type='PangoRenderFc', script='latin'
 +
 +
If you are seeing errors similar to this and/or seeing blocks instead of characters in your application then you need to add fonts and update the font cache.  This example uses the {{Pkg|ttf-liberation}} fonts to illustrate the solution and runs as root to enable them system-wide.
 +
 +
# pacman -S ttf-liberation
 +
  -- output abbreviated, assumes installation succeeded --
 +
 +
# fc-cache -vfs
 +
/usr/share/fonts: caching, new cache contents: 0 fonts, 3 dirs
 +
/usr/share/fonts/TTF: caching, new cache contents: 16 fonts, 0 dirs
 +
/usr/share/fonts/encodings: caching, new cache contents: 0 fonts, 1 dirs
 +
/usr/share/fonts/encodings/large: caching, new cache contents: 0 fonts, 0 dirs
 +
/usr/share/fonts/util: caching, new cache contents: 0 fonts, 0 dirs
 +
/var/cache/fontconfig: cleaning cache directory 
 +
fc-cache: succeeded
 +
 +
You can test for a default font being set like so:
 +
 +
# fc-match
 +
LiberationMono-Regular.ttf: "Liberation Mono" "Regular"
 +
 +
=== Fonts 與 X.Org ===
 +
 +
In order for [[Xorg]] to find and use your newly installed fonts, you must add the font paths to {{ic|/etc/X11/xorg.conf}} (another X.Org configuration file may work too).
 +
 +
Here is an example of the section that must be added to {{ic|/etc/X11/xorg.conf}}. Add or remove paths based on your particular font requirements.
 +
# Let X.Org know about the custom font directories
 +
Section "Files"
 +
    FontPath    "/usr/share/fonts/100dpi"
 +
    FontPath    "/usr/share/fonts/75dpi"
 +
    FontPath    "/usr/share/fonts/cantarell"
 +
    FontPath    "/usr/share/fonts/cyrillic"
 +
    FontPath    "/usr/share/fonts/encodings"
 +
    FontPath    "/usr/share/fonts/local"
 +
    FontPath    "/usr/share/fonts/misc"
 +
    FontPath    "/usr/share/fonts/truetype"
 +
    FontPath    "/usr/share/fonts/TTF"
 +
    FontPath    "/usr/share/fonts/util"
 +
EndSection

The [[Wikipedia:Virtual console|virtual console]] uses the kernel built-in font and ASCII character set by default, but both can be easily changed.
 +
 +
A console font is limited to either 256 or 512 characters. Available fonts are saved in {{ic|/usr/share/kbd/consolefonts/}} directory.
 +
 +
Keymaps, the connection between the key pressed and the character used by the computer, are found in the subdirectories of {{ic|/usr/share/kbd/keymaps/}}.
 +
 +
=== 預覽和測試 ===
 +
 +
{{Tip|An organized library of images for previewing is available: [http://alexandre.deverteuil.net/consolefonts/consolefonts.html Linux console fonts screenshots].}}
 +
 +
The available glyphs or letters in the font can also be viewed as a table with using ''showconsolefont'':
 +
 +
$ showconsolefont
 +
 +
The ''setfont'' utility may be used to temporarily change the font, so that the user can consider its use as the default. Just pass the name of the font (they are located in {{ic|/usr/share/kbd/consolefonts/}}):
 +
 +
$ setfont Lat2-Terminus16
 +
 +
Optionally, you can specify character set to be used using the {{ic|-m}} option:
 +
 +
$ setfont Lat2-Terminus16 -m 8859-2
 +
 +
If the newly changed font is not suitable, a return to the default font with the following command (even if the console display is totally unreadable, this command will still work - just type the command "blindly"):
 +
 +
$ setfont
 +
 +
{{Note|''setfont'' only works on the console currently being used. Any other consoles, active or inactive, remain unaffected.}}
 +
 +
=== 更改預設字型 ===
 +
 +
The {{ic|FONT}} and {{ic|FONT_MAP}} variables in {{ic|/etc/vconsole.conf}} are used to change the default font.
 +
 +
For displaying characters such as ''Č, ž, đ, š'' or ''Ł, ę, ą, ś'' using the font {{ic|lat2-16.psfu.gz}}:
 +
 +
FONT=lat2-16
 +
 +
It means that second part of ISO/IEC 8859 characters are used with size 16. You can change font size using other values (e.g. {{ic|lat2-08}}). For the regions determined by 8859 specification, look at the [[wikipedia:ISO/IEC_8859#The_Parts_of_ISO.2FIEC_8859|Wikipedia table]]. You can use a Terminus font which is recommended if you work a lot in console without X server. ter-216b for example is latin-2 part, size 16, bold. ter-216n is the same but normal weight. Terminus fonts have sizes up to 32.
 +
 +
Now, set the proper font mapping, for lat2-16 it will be:
 +
 +
FONT_MAP=8859-2
 +
 +
To use the specified font in early userspace, use the {{ic|keymap}} hook in {{ic|/etc/mkinitcpio.conf}}. See [[Mkinitcpio#HOOKS]] for more information.
 +
 +
If the fonts seems to not change on boot, or change only temporarily, it is most likely that they got reset when graphics driver was initialized and console was switched to framebuffer. To avoid this, load your graphics driver earlier. See for example [[Kernel Mode Setting#Early KMS start]], [https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=145765] or other ways to setup your framebuffer before {{ic|/etc/vconsole.conf}} is applied.

This is a selective list that includes many font packages from the [[AUR]] along with those in the official repositories. Fonts are tagged "Unicode" if they have wide Unicode support, see the project or Wikipedia pages for detail.
 +
 +
Github user Ternstor has created a python script that generates PNG images of all fonts in [http://ternstor.github.com/archfonts/extra.html extra], [http://ternstor.github.com/archfonts/community.html community] and the [http://ternstor.github.com/archfonts/aur.html AUR] so you can preview all the fonts below.
 +
 +
===Braille===
 +
*{{Pkg|ttf-ubraille}} - Font containing Unicode symbols for ''braille''
 +
 +
===International users===
 +
Applications and browsers select and display fonts depending upon fontconfig preferences and available font glyph for Unicode text. To list installed fonts for a particular language, issue a command {{ic|<nowiki>fc-list :lang="two letter language code"</nowiki>}}. For instance, to list installed Arabic fonts or fonts supporting Arabic glyph:
 +
{{hc|$ fc-list :lang&#61;ar &#124; cut -d: -f1|2=
 +

== Fallback font order with X11 ==
 +
Fontconfig automatically chooses a font that matches the current requirement. That is to say, if one is looking at a window containing English and Chinese for example, it will switch to another font for the Chinese text if the default one does not support it.
 +
 +
Fontconfig lets every user configure the order they want via {{ic|$XDG_CONFIG_HOME/fontconfig/fonts.conf}}.
 +
If you want a particular Chinese font to be selected after your favorite Serif font, your file would look like this:
 +
<?xml version="1.0"?>
 +
<!DOCTYPE fontconfig SYSTEM "fonts.dtd">
 +
<fontconfig>
 +
<alias>
 +
    <family>serif</family>
 +
    <prefer>
 +
      <family>Your favorite Latin Serif font name</family>
 +
      <family>Your Chinese font name</family>
 +
    </prefer>
 +
  </alias>
 +
</fontconfig>
 +
 +
You can add a section for Sans-serif and monospace as well. For more informations, have a look at the fontconfig manual.
 +
 +
== 字型別名 ==
 +
In Linux there are several font aliases which represent other fonts in order that applications may use similar fonts. The most common aliases are: {{ic|serif}} for a font of the serif type (e.g. DejaVu Serif); {{ic|sans-serif}} for a font of the sans-serif type (e.g. DejaVu Sans); and {{ic|monospace}} for a monospaced font (e.g. DejaVu Sans Mono). However, the fonts which these aliases represent may vary and the relationship is often not shown in font management tools such as those found in KDE and other desktop environments.
 +
 +
To reverse an alias and find which font it is representing, run:
 +
$ fc-match monospace
 +
DejaVuSansMono.ttf: "DejaVu Sans Mono" "Book"
 +
 +
In this case {{ic|DejaVuSansMono.ttf}} is the font represented by the monospace alias.
 +

Tango-preferences-desktop-locale.pngThis article or section needs to be translated.Tango-preferences-desktop-locale.png

Notes: please use the first argument of the template to provide more detailed indications. (Discuss in Talk:Fonts (正體中文)#)

From Wikipedia:

A computer font (or font) is an electronic data file containing a set of glyphs, characters, or symbols such as dingbats.

Note that certain font licenses may impose some legal limitations.

字型格式

Most computer fonts used today are in either bitmap or outline data formats.

Bitmap fonts
Consist of a matrix of dots or pixels representing the image of each glyph in each face and size.
Outline or vector fonts
Use Bézier curves, drawing instructions and mathematical formulae to describe each glyph, which make the character outlines scalable to any size.

常見副檔名

  • bdf and bdf.gz – bitmap fonts, bitmap distribution format and gzip compressed bdf
  • pcf and pcf.gz – bitmaps, portable compiled font and gzip compressed pcf
  • psf, psfu, psf.gz and psfu.gz – bitmaps, PC screen font, PC screen font Unicode and the gzipped versions (not compatible with X.Org)
  • pfa and pfb – outline fonts, PostScript font ASCII and PostScript font binary. PostScript fonts carry built-in printer instructions.
  • ttf – outline, TrueType font. Originally designed as a replacement for the PostScript fonts.
  • otf – outline, OpenType font. TrueType with PostScript typographic instructions.

For most purposes, the technical differences between TrueType and OpenType can be ignored, some fonts with a ttf extension are actually OpenType fonts.

其他格式

The typesetting application, TeX, and its companion font software, Metafont, render characters using their own methods. Some of the file extensions used for fonts by these two programs are *pk, *gf, mf and vf.

FontForge, a font editing application, can store fonts in its native text-based format, sfd, spline font database.

The SVG format also has its own font description method.

Installation

There are various methods for installing fonts.

Pacman

Fonts and font collections in the enabled repositories can be installed using pacman. Available fonts may be found by using:

$ pacman -Ss font

Or to search for ttf fonts only:

$ pacman -Ss ttf

Some fonts like terminus-font are installed in /usr/share/fonts/local, which is not added to the font path by default. By adding the following lines to ~/.xinitrc, the fonts can be used in X11:

xset +fp /usr/share/fonts/local
xset fp rehash

In case the first command causes the following error

$ xset +fp /usr/share/fonts/local/
xset:  bad font path element (#0), possible causes are:
    Directory does not exist or has wrong permissions
    Directory missing fonts.dir
    Incorrect font server address or syntax

you'll have to run

# cd /usr/share/fonts/local;mkfontdir

建立軟體包

You should give pacman the ability to manage your fonts, which is done by creating an Arch package. These can also be shared with the community in the AUR. Here is an example of how to create a basic package. To learn more about building packages, read PKGBUILD.

pkgname=ttf-fontname
pkgver=1.0
pkgrel=1
pkgdesc="custom fonts"
arch=('any')
depends=('fontconfig' 'xorg-font-utils')
source=("http://someurl.org/$pkgname.tar.bz2")
install=$pkgname.install

package() {
  install -d "$pkgdir/usr/share/fonts/TTF"
  cp -dpr --no-preserve=ownership "$srcdir/$pkgname/"*.ttf "$pkgdir/usr/share/fonts/TTF/"
}

This PKGBUILD assumes the fonts are TrueType. An install file (ttf-fontname.install) will also need to be created to update the font cache:

post_install() {
  echo -n "Updating font cache... "
  fc-cache -fs >/dev/null
  mkfontscale /usr/share/fonts/TTF /usr/share/fonts/Type1
  mkfontdir /usr/share/fonts/TTF /usr/share/fonts/Type1
  echo "done"
}

post_upgrade() {
  post_install
}

post_remove() {
  post_install
}

For a more convenient package creation from ttf-fonts you can also use makefontpkgAUR from the AUR.

手動安裝

The recommended way of adding fonts that are not in the repositories to your system is described in #Creating a package. This gives pacman the ability to remove or update them at a later time. Fonts can alternately be installed manually as well.

To install fonts system-wide (available for all users), move the folder to the /usr/share/fonts/ directory. To install fonts for only a single user, use ~/.fonts/ instead.

For Xserver to load fonts directly (as opposed to the use of a font server) the directory for your newly added font must be added with a FontPath entry. This entry is located in the Files section of your Xorg configuration file (e.g. /etc/X11/xorg.conf or /etc/xorg.conf). See #Fonts with X.Org for more detail.

Then update the fontconfig font cache:

$ fc-cache -vf

手動安裝:進階方式

Manual installation and maintenance of your font resources may be especially useful if your collection is more specialized, e.g. if you use commercial fonts, if you use fonts in different formats, if you often install and remove font files, or if you just feel you need more control and better access than offered by the package manager. There are numerous benefits to such an approach:

  • You can avoid installation of multiple copies of the same family in different versions and formats (one of the most common reasons for rendering issues).
  • You can use multiple and non-standard physical sources of font files (e.g. an additional hard drive, a separate partition).
  • You can avoid relying on huge and cryptic local font sources which possibly contain 5 families you need and 55 you don't need (TeX Live & 09-texlive-fonts.conf, random font collections from the AUR, etc).
  • You can avoid rendering issues because your fontconfig settings were tuned to a different format but the one installed in your system.
  • You can quickly verify which families in which format(s) are present in the system and available for applications by visually inspecting the content of the main font directory (as a result, you don't need sophisticated and heavy-on-resources font management applications: gtk2fontsel and basic CLI tools like fc-query from fontconfig package will do the job even better and faster).
  • When you install or upgrade a single font, the same version will be available for all applications, including LaTeX related software.
  • If necessary, you can quickly enable / disable a particular family because you know where exactly it can be found (useful for debugging).
  • You don't need to worry about redundant /etc/fonts/conf.avail/nn-foo.conf fontconfig files, potentially conflicting with your rendering settings (especially when you are using a customized font configuration and patched libraries).
  • In the long run, you save time needed to resolve issues and eliminate conflicts caused by careless use of the package manager.

In practical terms, there are at least a few ways to achieve this, which, if necessary, can be adopted by any package manager. The one described below has proven to be very efficient and secure even with large font collections.

  • We are going to separate font source locations (e.g. /usr/share/fonts.avail: this is where our fonts will be stored) from a directory containing symbolic links to the families in use (/usr/share/fonts).
  • Each family is going to be located in a separate, clearly named subdirectory. The naming convention should be consistent and unambiguous, for instance:
<ttf|otf|t1>-<optional_global_group_or_foundry_name>-<font_family_name>

This way the content of the source directory will look like this:

$ ls /usr/share/fonts.avail

/usr/share/fonts.avail/otf-heuristica
/usr/share/fonts.avail/ttf-liberation
/usr/share/fonts.avail/ttf-ms-arial
...
  • We are not going to touch TeX Live font directories to avoid issues with LaTeX software. Instead, since we can use multiple locations, we will create symlinks in /usr/share/fonts, giving applications access to particular families:
# cd /usr/share/fonts
# ln -s ../fonts.avail/otf-heuristica .
# ln -s /opt/texlive/texmf-dist/fonts/truetype/public/opensans ttf-texlive-open.sans

The result:

$ ls /usr/share/fonts

ttf-liberation        -> ..fonts.avail/ttf-liberation
ttf-ms-arial          -> ..fonts.avail/ttf-ms-arial
otf-heuristica        -> ..fonts.avail/otf-heuristica
otf-texlive-tex.gyre  -> /opt/texlive/texmf-dist/fonts/opentype/public/tex-gyre
ttf-texlive-open.sans -> /opt/texlive/texmf-dist/fonts/truetype/public/opensans
...

Finally, you may want to run the usual:

# fc-cache && mkfontscale && mkfontdir

A similar approach can be found in TeX Live Wiki article, but it's way simpler and describes a per-user scenario rather than a global implementation.

舊版應用程式

With older applications that do not support fontconfig (e.g. GTK+ 1.x applications, and xfontsel) the index will need to be created in the font directory:

$ mkfontscale
$ mkfontdir

Or to include more than one folder with one command:

$ for dir in /font/dir1/ /font/dir2/; do xset +fp $dir; done && xset fp rehash

At times the X server may fail to load the fonts directory and you will need to rescan all the fonts.dir files:

# xset +fp /usr/share/fonts/misc # Inform the X server of new directories
# xset fp rehash                # Forces a new rescan

To check that the font(s) is included:

$ xlsfonts | grep fontname

Pango 警告訊息

When Pango is in use on your system it will read from fontconfig to sort out where to source fonts.

(process:5741): Pango-WARNING **: failed to choose a font, expect ugly output. engine-type='PangoRenderFc', script='common'
(process:5741): Pango-WARNING **: failed to choose a font, expect ugly output. engine-type='PangoRenderFc', script='latin'

If you are seeing errors similar to this and/or seeing blocks instead of characters in your application then you need to add fonts and update the font cache. This example uses the ttf-liberation fonts to illustrate the solution and runs as root to enable them system-wide.

# pacman -S ttf-liberation
  -- output abbreviated, assumes installation succeeded -- 

# fc-cache -vfs
/usr/share/fonts: caching, new cache contents: 0 fonts, 3 dirs
/usr/share/fonts/TTF: caching, new cache contents: 16 fonts, 0 dirs
/usr/share/fonts/encodings: caching, new cache contents: 0 fonts, 1 dirs
/usr/share/fonts/encodings/large: caching, new cache contents: 0 fonts, 0 dirs
/usr/share/fonts/util: caching, new cache contents: 0 fonts, 0 dirs
/var/cache/fontconfig: cleaning cache directory   
fc-cache: succeeded

You can test for a default font being set like so:

# fc-match
LiberationMono-Regular.ttf: "Liberation Mono" "Regular"

Fonts 與 X.Org

In order for Xorg to find and use your newly installed fonts, you must add the font paths to /etc/X11/xorg.conf (another X.Org configuration file may work too).

Here is an example of the section that must be added to /etc/X11/xorg.conf. Add or remove paths based on your particular font requirements.

# Let X.Org know about the custom font directories
Section "Files"
    FontPath    "/usr/share/fonts/100dpi"
    FontPath    "/usr/share/fonts/75dpi"
    FontPath    "/usr/share/fonts/cantarell"
    FontPath    "/usr/share/fonts/cyrillic"
    FontPath    "/usr/share/fonts/encodings"
    FontPath    "/usr/share/fonts/local"
    FontPath    "/usr/share/fonts/misc"
    FontPath    "/usr/share/fonts/truetype"
    FontPath    "/usr/share/fonts/TTF"
    FontPath    "/usr/share/fonts/util"
EndSection

終端機字型

The virtual console uses the kernel built-in font and ASCII character set by default, but both can be easily changed.

A console font is limited to either 256 or 512 characters. Available fonts are saved in /usr/share/kbd/consolefonts/ directory.

Keymaps, the connection between the key pressed and the character used by the computer, are found in the subdirectories of /usr/share/kbd/keymaps/.

預覽和測試

Tip: An organized library of images for previewing is available: Linux console fonts screenshots.

The available glyphs or letters in the font can also be viewed as a table with using showconsolefont:

$ showconsolefont

The setfont utility may be used to temporarily change the font, so that the user can consider its use as the default. Just pass the name of the font (they are located in /usr/share/kbd/consolefonts/):

$ setfont Lat2-Terminus16

Optionally, you can specify character set to be used using the -m option:

$ setfont Lat2-Terminus16 -m 8859-2

If the newly changed font is not suitable, a return to the default font with the following command (even if the console display is totally unreadable, this command will still work - just type the command "blindly"):

$ setfont
Note: setfont only works on the console currently being used. Any other consoles, active or inactive, remain unaffected.

更改預設字型

The FONT and FONT_MAP variables in /etc/vconsole.conf are used to change the default font.

For displaying characters such as Č, ž, đ, š or Ł, ę, ą, ś using the font lat2-16.psfu.gz:

FONT=lat2-16

It means that second part of ISO/IEC 8859 characters are used with size 16. You can change font size using other values (e.g. lat2-08). For the regions determined by 8859 specification, look at the Wikipedia table. You can use a Terminus font which is recommended if you work a lot in console without X server. ter-216b for example is latin-2 part, size 16, bold. ter-216n is the same but normal weight. Terminus fonts have sizes up to 32.

Now, set the proper font mapping, for lat2-16 it will be:

FONT_MAP=8859-2

To use the specified font in early userspace, use the keymap hook in /etc/mkinitcpio.conf. See Mkinitcpio#HOOKS for more information.

If the fonts seems to not change on boot, or change only temporarily, it is most likely that they got reset when graphics driver was initialized and console was switched to framebuffer. To avoid this, load your graphics driver earlier. See for example Kernel Mode Setting#Early KMS start, [1] or other ways to setup your framebuffer before /etc/vconsole.conf is applied.

字型軟體包

This is a selective list that includes many font packages from the AUR along with those in the official repositories. Fonts are tagged "Unicode" if they have wide Unicode support, see the project or Wikipedia pages for detail.

Github user Ternstor has created a python script that generates PNG images of all fonts in extra, community and the AUR so you can preview all the fonts below.

Braille

International users

Applications and browsers select and display fonts depending upon fontconfig preferences and available font glyph for Unicode text. To list installed fonts for a particular language, issue a command fc-list :lang="two letter language code". For instance, to list installed Arabic fonts or fonts supporting Arabic glyph:

$ fc-list :lang=ar | cut -d: -f1
/usr/share/fonts/TTF/FreeMono.ttf
/usr/share/fonts/TTF/DejaVuSansCondensed.ttf
/usr/share/fonts/truetype/custom/DroidKufi-Bold.ttf
/usr/share/fonts/TTF/DejaVuSansMono.ttf
/usr/share/fonts/TTF/FreeSerif.ttf

To properly render fonts for multilingual websites like Wikipedia or this Arch Linux wiki, install these packages: ttf-freefont, ttf-arphic-uming, ttf-baekmuk

Arabic & Urdu

Birman

Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Vietnamese

(Mainly) Chinese
  • ttf-twAUR - Kai and Song traditional Chinese font from the Ministry of Education of Taiwan (AUR).
  • wqy-microhei - A Sans-Serif style high quality CJKV outline font.
  • wqy-zenhei - Hei Ti Style (sans-serif) Chinese Outline font embedded with bitmapped Song Ti (also supporting Japanese (partial) and Korean characters).

Fallback font order with X11

Fontconfig automatically chooses a font that matches the current requirement. That is to say, if one is looking at a window containing English and Chinese for example, it will switch to another font for the Chinese text if the default one does not support it.

Fontconfig lets every user configure the order they want via $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/fontconfig/fonts.conf. If you want a particular Chinese font to be selected after your favorite Serif font, your file would look like this:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE fontconfig SYSTEM "fonts.dtd">
<fontconfig>
<alias>
   <family>serif</family>
   <prefer>
     <family>Your favorite Latin Serif font name</family>
     <family>Your Chinese font name</family>
   </prefer>
 </alias>
</fontconfig>

You can add a section for Sans-serif and monospace as well. For more informations, have a look at the fontconfig manual.

字型別名

In Linux there are several font aliases which represent other fonts in order that applications may use similar fonts. The most common aliases are: serif for a font of the serif type (e.g. DejaVu Serif); sans-serif for a font of the sans-serif type (e.g. DejaVu Sans); and monospace for a monospaced font (e.g. DejaVu Sans Mono). However, the fonts which these aliases represent may vary and the relationship is often not shown in font management tools such as those found in KDE and other desktop environments.

To reverse an alias and find which font it is representing, run:

$ fc-match monospace
DejaVuSansMono.ttf: "DejaVu Sans Mono" "Book"

In this case DejaVuSansMono.ttf is the font represented by the monospace alias.
