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

Is this what you have in your /etc/pacman.conf:

[infinality-bundle-multilib]
Server = http://ibn.net63.net/infinality-bundle-multilib/$arch

? I presume $arch is missing.

Thanks for reporting. Just in case, I've re-signed the packages and re-created the repo.

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

rutgerr, in the future please prepend the command with LC_ALL=C e.g. 'LC_ALL=C yaourt -Syua', so we get output in English.

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

Why should it be? Source packages are available anyway for those who don't want to use pre-compiled binaries. I didn't find it necessary to multiplicate the same thing all around.

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

bohoomil: I'm trying to implement your settings on Ubuntu 13.04. I have installed binaries for freetype and fontconfig from this repository: https://launchpad.net/~no1wantdthisname/+archive/ppa

I also downloaded the master branch from https://github.com/bohoomil/fontconfig-ultimate , but I don't know where to put each config file. I understand your modifications to fontconfig read config files from a different directory, but it's not clear to me where all the .conf files go. I already copied infinality-settings.sh to where it should be, but it's not enough to make wikipedia.org look like your screenshots.

Thanks.

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

Is there a way to set my font size globally? Now I have set "monospace:pixelsize=12" in dwm's config.h, sxiv's config.h, Xresources, dwb's settings, etc, so if I'd want another font size I'd have to edit all these files.

Also, Lekton is really nice, but characters like [, {, }, ] are bugged when size=11 or 12, see pic:

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

The sigs are working just fine for me.  Maybe you should clear out the infinality-bundle stuff from /var/lib/pacman/sync and let them re-update themselves.  Maybe what is on your machine was simply corrupted on its way in.

Resetting the pacman keys?  What did you do exactly?

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

@doggone, Let's see:

Lekton 11 + termite

Lekton 12 + termite

What you have pointed out sometimes happens to certain fonts in particular apps. As far as I can tell, the reason is inflexible way of handling line heights by the application in combination with not always correct font scaling. A similar affect can be observed when you increase the height of a font in a word processor and drastically decrease the line height. I presume that in your case the combination of the font family and the application has revealed what I mentioned before, i.e. the 'rough edges' of the former. Hence the difference between our screenshots.

@tumas, try doing what flipperT advised. 'Resetting' the keychain won't help because you already have the correct ones. However, forcing pacman to re-fetch the entire content should be effective. Things like this may happen occasionally (for instance during package upgrade), but fortunately the hosting service is not the culprit.

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

This is happening in every single application. I have noticed that since the latest patch all fonts are higher, like they have more bottom padding. Here's a picture of what I mean:



That's my dwm panel. As you can see it's closer to the top than to the bottom of the bar. I think this is the same problem.

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

I'm not sure if and to what extent both things are related. As I said, the first one is most likely a scaling / line height issue: I observed it myself in the past and switching the font helped. I don't modify the original infinality code in any way that could produce unintended effects, so I can't really tell if the patch set is to blame. What I am thinking about right now, however, is libXft: I used to build it previously with all the font related stuff, but since one day I couldn't tell if it was a needed step in any way, I've been using a regular libxft since. You may want to try and rebuild libxft yourself and see if it helps. If it does, I will add libxft to the repository and make it available for others.

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

I installed Termite and that proved you right about the issue with Lekton, yay! (I'm not sure if I want to lose urxvt yet though). About the other issue, I built libXft, no change. I also downgraded back to my cached infinality-bundle, no change. Anyways, I don't really care since it's not related to the other thing.

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

Termite uses VTE, URxvt does not. AFAIK, VTE by default uses Pango whereas URxvt uses Xft. That's your difference, I guess. You can change the font height in DWM's bar by changing the XFT patch you applied to DWM, or you can just use the Pango patch instead.

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

ttf-ms-win8 (+ comment, if necessary). Copy all *.ttc fonts, not only Cambria, i.e. issue

cp tmp/Windows/Fonts/{*.ttf,*.ttc} fonts

Those often cover non-Latin languages, so getting rid of them may not be a wise step. You don't need to convert TTC files to separate TTFs, so you can comment out the fontforge line in the PKGBUILD.
