Adding fonts to piCore
« on: June 09, 2018, 03:45:43 AM »
Hi,

Is there an extension I can download that will allow me to add fonts to piCore?  I'm trying to change a font on a Gtk C program I writing and I'd like to use the font Univers 55. 

Thank you...

Hi syntax_error
In the piCore 9 repository I see the following font extensions:
Code: [Select]
dejavu-fonts-ttf.tcz
terminus-fonts.tcz
xorg-fonts.tcz
Found here:
http://tinycorelinux.net/9.x/armv6/tcz/

You could also take a look at these TC9 x86 extensions for a larger selection:
Code: [Select]
cantarell-fonts.tcz
dejavu-fonts-ttf.tcz
Hack-font.tcz
liberation-fonts-ttf.tcz
play-fonts-ttf.tcz
schumacher-clean-fonts.tcz
setfont.tcz
terminus-fonts.tcz
unifont.tcz
xfonts-unifont.tcz
xfonts-wqy.tcz
Xorg-fonts.tcz
Found here:
http://tinycorelinux.net/9.x/x86/tcz/

Hi syntax_error
While the fonts from the x86 repository are compatible, you might want to check any scripts under  /usr/local/tce.installed/  to
make sure they don't conflict in any way.

Examples to see the file list of these extensions:
http://tinycorelinux.net/9.x/armv6/tcz/dejavu-fonts-ttf.tcz.list
http://tinycorelinux.net/9.x/x86/tcz/schumacher-clean-fonts.tcz.list

Hi Rich,

Thank you very much for your replies.  I'll take a look through the listing of fonts available.  I was hoping there was a utility in which I could install the specific fonts I wanted.  I wonder if there is a debian utility I could use on picore.  Nonetheless thanks again.
