Termsyn Font

I decided to fork the new 8x15 version of terminusmod into a new project called termsyn and add some other sizes too. It's really become something different now. It's a mix of terminus and tamsyn. For now it's only the 8x15 with bold and the 6x11 (no bold yet). Both have versions with status icons. The 6x11 has closer spacing. Here's a screenshot of the 8x15 on my netbook: tYmdkOA

It's in the aur here https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=54304

Re: Termsyn Font

I completed the bold for the 6x11 and made several other refinements to the 6x11. I think it looks pretty nice now. I updated the aur. I'd like to see a good screenshot of the 6x11! If the c is too closed and hard to tell from the o (or if you notice anything else), just let me know and I can open it up. It's hard to tell on my screen.

Re: Termsyn Font

I ended up opening up the c and made quite a few more changes to the 6x11 and a couple to the 8x15. The 6x11 still looked too much like tamsyn so I made it look more like terminus. It's more like what I intended it to be now. I updated the aur again.

Re: Termsyn Font

I'm really liking the Termsyn font, very readable on my monitor. I'd like to see the UK pound sign though (£). I think it is in Terminusmod which I have been using.

Thanks for the work

Re: Termsyn Font

^^Well, thank ya very much^^
There is a pound symbol at '\x1E'. I'll try to do all of the symbols soon.

I did the 7x12 also changed a couple things and cleaned up as much as I could find. Everything should be pretty close now.
Here's a screenshot of the 7x14:

Ah, OK. All that is showing up for me (in urxvt) is an oblong box. Caveat - I now nothing about fonts so I am probably not doing something right my end sad

This is the section in my .Xdefaults

URxvt*font: xft:Termsyn:pixelsize=15:style=Regular
URxvt*boldFont: xft:Termsyn:pixelsize=15:style=Bold

Re: Termsyn Font

^^I added the Pound symbol. It should work for you now.^^ I'll try to do all the symbols eventually.

I finished the 8x17 and made a few changes. I cleaned up a few more things too. It should be pretty much good to go now. I'm happy with the way it turned out.

Re: Termsyn Font

Like your font very much and probably would use it, if it'd support German characters (ä,ö,ü and ß)

Re: Termsyn Font

^^^Hi, thank you. I'm working on it. I have the 6x11 almost done. It's in my configs (termsyn-1.7). I'll put the other sizes in there as I finish them and update the whole thing when I'm done.

edit: I made some improvements to the new characters of the 6x11 and completed it. The updated versions are in my configs. I'm working on completing the 15 next and should have it by tomorrow. I made a few refinements overall. I extended the top of the i, l and 1 on the 8x15 and 8x17, and moved them one pixel to the right. (it's better) and I'm cleaning up any thing else I find (which isn't much now).

Re: Termsyn Font

I finished the full character set for the 8x15. The updated versions are in my configs. The small changes I made to the 1, i's and l on the 8x15 made a big difference. It looks really nice now. I should have everything done by Friday or Saturday for all the sizes and I'll make an update then. Here's a screenshot of the updated 15: tYmozeg
Here's a couple screenshots of what I added to each. Let me know if something doesn't look right and I'll try to fix it.
tYmo0Mw    tYmo0NA

edit: I already fixed the cent symbol and the top of the character at DF on the 6x11, I just haven't updated it yet.

I have one in the version with icons. You could use that or use gbdfed to cut and paste it from the icon version to somewhere in the regular version (or draw your own). But I don't want to add it otherwise.

Re: Termsyn Font

Ok, I finished the ISO8859-1 character sets for all sizes and made a few more changes and numerous fixes. The updated version is in the aur. Cheers

Here's a screenshot. It's the 15 on the status bar and 11 in the terminal:  tYmp0NQ

Re: Termsyn Font

Awesome, using it right now. But one thing: I can't get it working for dmenu, because somthing's wrong with: "-*-termsyn-bold-*-*-*-8-*-*-*-*-*-*-*" ?
xfontsel doesn't find it either.

Re: Termsyn Font

I think you have to run these commands

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

If it works you might need to make it permanent by adding this to your startupscript like .xinitrc

great looking font. I'm wandering before installation if it supports Slovenian (slavic) special characters ČĆŽŠĐ

Re: Termsyn Font

^^Thanks again. It makes me feel like it was worth the effort!^^

@christooss, I was thinking of trying to add other charcter sets too. I'll probably do ISO8859-2 next which would include your characters I believe. I'm working on a couple other things too so I'll try to get it done as soon as I can.

And I'll keep going over it and fix anything else I can find and try to make it as perfect as I can get it for the next update. ( I already found a couple things)

Re: Termsyn Font

I've been using Terminus lately; but I've also been trying Tamsyn, which has a little too much "serif" to be my terminal font of choice. Fortunately, your work incorporates some of the "better" glyph shapes from the former. I'm very possibly making a switch to Termsyn. smile

Would be be possible for you to include a PSF version for use at the console? (I've no idea how difficult that might be.)

Thanks!

Re: Termsyn Font

^^Hi. Yes I was going to try to make PSF versions also last time and kinda forgot about it. I made an aur PKGBUILD for bdf2psf a while back and haven't really used it. I tried on another font I made (terminusmod 14) and it didn't work. I think gbdfed might do it also though? I didn't really look into much further but I'll take another look at it.

Re: Termsyn Font

Hey, thanks! A pretty nice font.. I'm using it as default-font in my I3-config and urxvt-config for now and think I'll stick with it for a while smile

Thank you very much!
