Re: infinality-bundle: good looking fonts made (even) easier

@Ledti, thank you for taking your time and experimenting with variables. I installed Chromium to compare it with dwb and Firefox and it seems that the wobbly letters are Chromium specific thing. Freetype settings are more a catalyst than the source of the problem to me, ego: it may quite well be a Chromium bug…

Re: infinality-bundle: good looking fonts made (even) easier

Am I the only one getting:

error: infinality-bundle: signature from "bohoomil (dev key) <bohoomil@zoho.com>" is invalid
:: Synchronizing package databases...
error: database 'infinality-bundle' is not valid (invalid or corrupted database (PGP signature))

lately?

I've tried reimporting and signing the key, to no avail.

Re: infinality-bundle: good looking fonts made (even) easier

Did you try removing db and sig files from /var/lib/pacman/sync and then running 'pacman -Syyu'?

error: failed retrieving file 'infinality-bundle.db' from ibn.net63.net : Failed connect to ibn.net63.net:80; Connection refused
error: failed to update infinality-bundle (download library error)

This doesn't work for me. This is on a fresh install too. Same error messages as frabjous.

Re: infinality-bundle: good looking fonts made (even) easier

For anyone looking for a new monospaced font, Mozilla's Fira is great:

It's the first font that has been able to pull me away from Envy Code R. Someone was kind enough to post packages to the AUR.

Re: infinality-bundle: good looking fonts made (even) easier

Are there any good (open-sourceish) replacement for ttf-ms-fonts? The only reason I install ttf-ms-fonts is to get consistent look in Chrome.

Re: infinality-bundle: good looking fonts made (even) easier

I'm currently working on an entirely free compilation that could go with the bundle. So far it looks pretty promising. It's going to be a bit different than a typical Arial/Helvetica/Arimo/Liberation Sans scheme, but in some way it seems even better (the base sans family is Noto Sans: it covers almost 75% of the languages and is a really decent piece of work). If waiting a tad bit isn't a big deal, you're going to find the complete collection in the 'any' repo, ready to use . smile

That sounds great. I've been hoping for something like this for a while as defaulting to Microsoft fonts (by default) just seems wrong for a Linux box. And I agree that the Noto font family is impressive. There are a bunch of great free fonts available so I'm looking forward to seeing what you choose.

Re: infinality-bundle: good looking fonts made (even) easier

We have another nice monospaced font to enjoy: monoOne, available in the AUR (as well as GitHub) looks like a successful combination of the best features known from Envy Code R and Inconsolata. Looks great even at 9px. Don't miss it. wink

Next week we are going to start testing the new free font bundle. The thing is almost done and if you like it, you may prepare yourself for the proprietary memorial service. Stay tuned. smile

Here you are: Colors with yellows and without yellows (for X and tty). It's termite running Vim (my main terminal emulator is still rxvt-unicode, though). Enjoy. smile

Re: infinality-bundle: good looking fonts made (even) easier

Having just recovered from a hdd crash with a fresh install, let me just say thanks to Bohoomil for making amazing fonts so easy (and easier to understand).

I also have a question - there's a bug with Gimp when using freetype2 as well as infinality-bundle that creates greenish outlines of antialiased text that can only be "solved" by turning off sub-pixel rendering.  I'm curious if there's a way to somehow only turn off sub-pixel rendering for gimp without affecting the rest of my system?

Re: infinality-bundle: good looking fonts made (even) easier

The project is almost finished: Since now we have a complete collection of free fonts available in the fontconfig-infinality-fonts repository, fontconfig-infinality-ultimate will support them by default. MS font families will remain supported, too, but in order to make things work correctly, you will need to do activate a correct preset. In either case, please pay attention to install the new version of fontconfig correctly.

First, remove the currently installed library:

# pacman -Rdd fontconfig-infinality-ultimate

Now, install (not upgrade!) the new one (v. 2.11.0-2):

# pacman -S fontconfig-infinality-ultimate

For those of you who are using/are going to use infinality-bundle-fonts collection everything should be fine now. (Just for the record: follow the instructions in the initial post of the sister thread if you have not installed the required font collection yet.)

For those who prefer MS fonts, do one more thing: As root, run

# fc-presets set

-- and select option 2). This will set the correct preset files for your fonts (basically, it will recreate the configuration you have been using so far).

The update should be easy and painless, I believe.

Good luck and enjoy.

@ctarwater: Unfortunately, I have no clue how the issues with Gimp and infinality patches could be resolved. sad Right now, update the libraries and see if the problem persists.

Re: infinality-bundle: good looking fonts made (even) easier

Just curious. I noticed that the default hintstyle in the config file is still hintslight. So for the new default settings, it is necessary to change that to hintfull, right? That is the default font set needs non-default hintstyle?

This isn't a problem. I just want to make sure I've understood as I was a little surprised.

Re: infinality-bundle: good looking fonts made (even) easier

Thanks bohoomil!  The new font package is looking great! 

Gimp issue is still present but I can just disable anti-aliasing within Gimp when needed until they manage to fix it on their end.

Because I sometimes get lost with all the files. Sorry. sad There is one more thing that should be changed -- I will re-up the package in a minute.

Re: infinality-bundle: good looking fonts made (even) easier

I recently updated to the newest version and it resulted in making some of the fonts pretty ugly and unreadable. I haven't had this issue before with other upgrades. I tried "fc-cache -f" but didn't have any luck. I also tried rebuilding ttf-ms-win8, and also tried reinstalling all packages on my system. I also tried the "fc-presets set" and set them to "2 - ms". Any ideas would be appreciated. Here's a picture of what I'm experiencing:
