Re: Whats the name of the fonts in the Archlinux logo?

I'm interested in this as well...I've seen it asked many times in other threads, and nobody ever answered back.  I also tried an automatic font recognition program, and it came up with a few close hits, but couldn't nail it down.

Only Apeiro would know the answer... and he probably forgot too, hehe.

Re: Whats the name of the fonts in the Archlinux logo?

the AUR logo in the top of this forum has the same font. The guy that made it probably knows which font he used.

Re: Whats the name of the fonts in the Archlinux logo?

Was is Judd who created the aur logo as well?  Someone had to have access to the correct font in order to make the 'u' (the 'a' and 'r' could have been stolen from the svg version of the arch logo).

Re: Whats the name of the fonts in the Archlinux logo?

Judd said a friend did it for him... if he runs into said friend, he'll ask him, but they've fallen out of touch.

Uhm... That's because .svg's has all gfx as vectors. It's drawn the moment you type the letter.

Re: Whats the name of the fonts in the Archlinux logo?

As to the AUR logo, I looked through the logs (we've got it under subversion) dp is responsible for checking in that logo, and it hasn't been touched since he did so. Perhaps asking him might yield some answers.


The suggestion box only accepts patches.

Doesn't look like it's free though.  Too bad.

and a boldened one here

neither of them are quite perfect, but are pretty close -- better than paying 44US.

Re: Whats the name of the fonts in the Archlinux logo?

ok, the light font, the first one I linked is a perfect match. THe one in the Arch logo is identical except for some slight resizings. the bold one is close.

the bold one in the arch logo is almost definitely karat bold. there's a medium one, which is slightly bolder but not enough.

That is a close match.  Good work finding those fonts, iphitus.
