Which is why I am so confused. I can install the infinality packages and everything, but just not the ibfonts packages.

 Packages (6): cairo-infinality-ultimate-1.12.16-3
              fontconfig-infinality-ultimate-2.11.0-15
              freetype2-infinality-ultimate-2.5.2-3
              lib32-cairo-infinality-ultimate-1.12.16-3
              lib32-fontconfig-infinality-ultimate-2.11.0-4
              lib32-freetype2-infinality-ultimate-2.5.2-2

Total Installed Size:   11.06 MiB
Net Upgrade Size:       0.00 MiB

:: Proceed with installation? [Y/n]  

See I can install the other packages in the repo. I already have them installed and everything, so I have no idea what the issue could possibly be.



*EDIT* My bad guys so sorry. I only added two of the three repos. I feel really really dumb for not realizing that. It is installing that. Much thanks for this fantastic project though, my fonts would be eyesores without it

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

@RibShark, I am not sure if this is going to solve your problem, but it is still worth checking out.

I have been using the new Inconsolata OTF release from TeX Live team and I think this is a pretty decent release. Here are the updated packages (incl. fontconfig) you can install and test with your piece of software:

Besides, replace your current /etc/profile.d/infinality-settings.sh with the new one from /usr/share/doc/fontconfig-infinality-ultimate/freetype.

Please, report back if this has helped.

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

A new update is waiting for you to be installed. smile

From the CHANGELOG:

* fontconfig-infinality-ultimate & infinality-bundle-fonts
** added 30-metric-aliases-foo.conf for each font collection 
   (should improve document portability depending on the default 
   font set)
** updated fc-presetsg
** added support for Gelasio font (TTF), the new metrically
   compatible replacement for Georgia
** removing Inconsolata-zi4 (Type 1) and added support for
   Inconsolatazi4 (OTF)
** multiple update to several fontconfig *.config files

Additionaly, freetype2-infinality-ultimate comes with the new infinality-settings.sh (installed as *.pacnew, so please overwrite the existing one). It is substantially very close to what you have been using so far, but I hope that a few glitches (eg. kerning issues) should be mostly eliminated now.

After you have updated fontconfig-iu, please run 'fc-presets set' and re-set the preset for your default font collection. This way you will activate the 30-metric-aliases-foo.conf.

Thanks and enjoy!

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

Thank you very much for this update smile
Does the introduction of "30-metric-aliases-foo.conf" make the sections in "37-repl-global-free.conf" that cover the same fonts obsolete?

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

I just want to point out that for anybody who was using Inconsolata-zi4, the new package actually calls it Inconsolatazi4. 

I updated, opened a terminal and thought "Hey!  What happened to my nice terminal font?"  That is what it turned out to be. 

In any case, great work as always bohoomil!  Things continue to look fantastic.

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

@WonderWoofy, I did not make it clear enough, but the switch was pointed out in the CHANGELOG:

** removing Inconsolata-zi4 (Type 1) and added support for
   Inconsolatazi4 (OTF)

Anyway, I should have mentioned that there was a little change in the font name, too. Thanks for pointing this out. wink

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

I seem to be having some problems with the quality of my font rendering all of a sudden. My fonts do not look as crisp and bright as they used to. It seems to have happened after updating fontconfig-infinality-ultimate (2.11.0-15 -> 2.11.0-17) and freetype2-infinality-ultimate(2.5.2-4). The update to fontconfig-infinality-ultimate-2.11.0-18 did not help, nor did downgrading to the previous versions of the packages.

Before the update

After the updates

And if I reinstall all of the vanilla versions of the packages, the rendering has the crispness and brightness that it did before the update. Reinstalling the infinality packages brings back the poorer rendering.

Vanilla files

Any help would be appreciated. The strange part is, that I have another machine with up to date infinality packages, and the rendering is the same as the first picture.

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

@SolarBoyMatt, @agahnim, I realized it yesterday that one of the files--infinality-settings.sh to be exact--was not uploaded in its most recent version (should be: 0.4.7.1, was: 0.4.7). The intended one provides a cleaner look and I have just uploaded an update to the yesterday's update. wink Besides, there are a few minor changes to the infinality-bundle-fonts collection and fontconfig-ib that you can pull as well. Of course, if infinality-settings.sh has been installed as a *.pacnew file, please go to /etc/profile.d and remove the suffix. Just for the record: restart the X for changes to become effective.

A little side note: there may be a little difference between the previous and current infinality settings. This is due to the fact that in order to eliminate a few issues we used to experience, I had to re-create the settings mostly from scratch. Preserving the old look was certainly my goal, hence the testing took several months. Still, as the whole set of parameters was changed, it is possible that a little bit of the former feel can vary. On the 'good news' side: infinality settings is what I am constantly tweaking so as soon as I attempt to get better results, I will make them available, as I always do. smile

@bohoomil  Thank you very much for the promp response. I will be following your suggestions. I do enjoy the direction that this seems to be going in then I do really like it, it just seemed to be broken partially on my machine and thought I had a problem. I do really appriciate the project and the effort. Your prompt response and action just go to show how great it is to be a part of a community such as this.

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

Hi, seems that latest update broke somethink on Japanese text rendering (in Chrome), the comma and the full-stop characters are up right instead of being left down. (Also note that I get garbage in the tab title).

What I get in Chrome :

WfEllbhl.png

What I get in LO :

Is it something in Chrome ? Or can you do something ? (Sorry to bother you if it's only a Chrome bug)

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

No problem. smile I guess it may be the beta Chrome. Take a look at Chromium from the official Arch repos: Chromium + ja.

BTW, freetype2 has been updated to 2.5.3 by the upstream. freetype2-infinality-ultimate is already waiting for you in the ib repository. Please, do not forget to replace your existing infinality-settings.sh with the new one (v.0.4.7.3). Enjoy. smile

Nope. I have just checked it again and the picture is still correct (I am using freetype2-iu 2.5.3-2 and fontconfig-iu 2.11.0-19). Try running

fc-cache -r

which should remove the entire fontconfig cache and recreate it afterwards. This sometimes helps to solve weird font issues.

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

The tab shows how Chromium / Chrome deals with charset detection… In Firefox everything is OK and so is in dwb (webkit2) as they both switch to Shift_JIS, which is required by this particular site. Chromium switches to Shift_JIS for web page content only, but the UI remains either UTF-8 or some Western encoding (presumably ISO). I'm afraid there is no cure for that…

Besides, I think you can check out "Advanced font settings" add-on (go to Chrome's font settings and install it clicking on the "Advanced font settings"). It can really make life easier when you need to customize fonts for any script. smile

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

Searching for the bug in the chromium issue tracker I found this : https://code.google.com/p/chromium/issu … ?id=335651
There are some people that had the same bug, and the fix they applied (69-language-selector-YOUR_LANGUAGE.conf) file works for me also. See last comment.

To test out, I put that file in the conf.d, named it 69-language-selector-ja-JP.conf directory and edited to :

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE fontconfig SYSTEM "fonts.dtd">
<fontconfig>

	<match target="pattern">
		<test qual="any" name="family">
			<string>serif</string>
		</test>
		<edit name="family" mode="prepend" binding="strong">
			<!-- serif latin fonts -->
			<string>DejaVu Serif</string>
			<string>Bitstream Vera Serif</string>
			<!-- serif fonts for your language -->
			<string>IPAmjMincho</string>
			<string>Koruri</string>
			<string>VL Gothic</string>
		</edit>
	</match>
	<match target="pattern">
		<test qual="any" name="family">
			<string>sans-serif</string>
		</test>
		<edit name="family" mode="prepend" binding="strong">
			<!-- sans-serif latin fonts -->
			<string>Ubuntu</string>
			<string>DejaVu Sans</string>
			<string>Bitstream Vera Sans</string>
			<!-- sans-serif fonts for your language -->
			<string>Koruri</string>
			<string>VL Gothic</string>
			<string>IPAmjMincho</string>
		</edit>
	</match>
	<match target="pattern">
		<test qual="any" name="family">
			<string>monospace</string>
		</test>
		<edit name="family" mode="prepend" binding="strong">
			<!-- monospace latin fonts -->
			<string>Ubuntu Mono</string>
			<string>DejaVu Sans Mono</string>
			<string>Bitstream Vera Sans Mono</string>
			<!-- monospace fonts for your language -->
			<string>Cousine</string>
			<string>IPAmjMincho</string>
			<string>Koruri</string>
		</edit>
	</match>

</fontconfig>

Not an ideal situation, as I'm disturbing your settings, but works ! (in Chrome and Chromium)

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

Thanks for the careful examination of the case and the bug reference -- it was something I did not know about. Actually, it was pretty easy to locate the culprit file: I just had to revise the way fontconfig-iu handles non-latin content (93-final-lang-spec-free.conf to be exact). Now both the content of the site and the UI should render correctly. You can also safely remove the 69-foo-ja-jp.conf file as it is not needed any more.

All you need to do is update fontconfig-iu (rev. 21) which has been already uploaded to the repository.

Thank you once again for your enormous help and checkout if Chrome / Chromium is working as expected now. smile

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

@bohoomil

With one of the recent updates the style of code fonts has changed. The font appears to be a lot smaller. Unfortunately I do not have any older screenshots for comparison but this is how it looks now:
