Read the warning -> act.



It really is obvious what to do. You even got the deprecating warning in the file.

Read the warning & if I understood it & what action to take, then I wouldn't have asked.

I don't, so I am.

Re: infinality-bundle-fonts: a free multilingual font collection for Arch

Have you tried changing the offending line so it says ~/.config/fontconfig/fonts.conf instead of ~/.fonts.conf ?

Re: infinality-bundle-fonts: a free multilingual font collection for Arch

One slight issue for me.  And I realise since this is probably only an issue for me it might be hard to describe without a screenshot but I'll give it a go

In my conky file (which is sent to the i3 bar) I have the following line:

"name" : "Seafile" , "full_text" : "↔"

The "↔" symbol used to be centred on the line (think of it in the same position as a regular dash) but now it's lowered (think of it like an underscore)

In other words (and continuing the dash and underscore thing).... it was "-" but is now "_" position wise

Not a deal-breaker because the fonts look so nice but would be great to fix.

FWIW, after following the directions in the original post, I removed my ms win8 fonts (which I don't want to put back)

It is always possible. What exactly would you like to change?

"↔"

The following font families display "↔" in the middle of the line: Droid Sans, DejaVu Sans, Standard Symbols L, Dingbats, VL {P}Gothic. Try setting one of those to display your conky line -- I bet Droid Sans or DejaVu Sans should do the job well enough.

I don't know whats up, but I did have this for fonts (which exhibited the problem)

font pango:droid sans 10

Just switched to this which fixed the problem

font pango:DejaVu Sans 10

Thanks :-)

Re: infinality-bundle-fonts: a free multilingual font collection for Arch

Maybe changing to caps (Droid Sans) would be enough then?

I'm afraid not... I don't see any difference in the following

font pango:droid sans 10
font pango:Droid Sans 10

I'm pretty sure that the lower case version "worked" because when I typoed something before, i3 dropped down to a hideously ugly font.  "droid sans" looked nice but just had that slight issue for me.

Re: infinality-bundle-fonts: a free multilingual font collection for Arch

That's odd… Before mentioning Droid Sans I checked if it really worked the way you expected and for me it did. That leaves me with an impression that computers are bastards. hmm

I just wanted an easier way to experiment. For example, I'd like to make one change and see the affects on Chromium and Firefox rather than having to change them individually.

Re: infinality-bundle-fonts: a free multilingual font collection for Arch

There's now a 'custom' subfolder in /etc/fonts/conf.avail.infinality. All the files you can find there are nothing but templates waiting to be modified by a user. I suppose you would like to experiment with free fonts (currently the files in 'custom' are duplicates of 'ms'), so do the following:

# cd /etc/fonts/conf.avail.infinality/custom
# rm .
# cp ../free/*.conf .
# rename free. custom. *free.*

(or whatever utility you use to replace a pattern in a file name). Then you can set the newly created (and modifiable presets) as your default ones, so any change you commit is going to be immediately visible to you:

# fc-presets set <hit the 'custom' option>

If you don't like the results, you can always change back to the defaults again:

# fc-presets set <hit the 'free' option>

I hope it makes sense to you. wink

Re: infinality-bundle-fonts: a free multilingual font collection for Arch

Hah! That post made my day! Thank you very much!

P.S.: Long story short. The guy behind Carlito is the creator of Lato fonts (available in infinality-bundle-fonts repo: check out t1-lato-ibx), probably one of the most talented typographers around these days. The two candidates for Calibri replacement had been PT Sans and… yep, Lato. Eventually, I decided to stick with PT Sans as a probably more popular among current Linux users. The cherry on the cake is the very fact that Carlito is based on Lato. smile

Of course, you can install carlito now and give it a test drive (the author is going to appreciate it).

Re: infinality-bundle-fonts: a free multilingual font collection for Arch

Are you planning to distribute Carlito? I ask because if so, I'll wait as you'll do it well. If not, I'll fiddle myself. (People are forever sending me documents in Calibri. Is it some sort of default in Word or something?)

[I should make clear that I'm not requesting you do this - you already do far more than is reasonable. Just you sound enthusiastic about it and I see no point in spending time on something which you are planning to do an infinality better job of than I could.]

Re: infinality-bundle-fonts: a free multilingual font collection for Arch

Carlito is already available in the repo -- I haven't stated it clear enough that it's there: see ttf-carlito-ibx.

Calibri was some sort of a… hmmm… new flagship font for Microsoft some time ago. I really like it I must say. We'll see whether Carlito is going to catch up -- testing and sending feedback is welcome.

Re: infinality-bundle-fonts: a free multilingual font collection for Arch

It wasn't a criticism of Calibri. Just for the longest time I didn't have it so stuff tended to look awful though it may have looked great originally, for all I could tell.

Installing Carlito now - thanks!

Re: infinality-bundle-fonts: a free multilingual font collection for Arch

Since Carlito is still (early) beta, I decided to leave it in the 'extra' group for a while. If you wish to use it as your default Calibri replacement, you have to modify 37-repl-global-free.conf:

  <!-- Calibri => Carlito => PT Sans -->
  <match target="font">
    <test name="family">
      <string>Calibri</string>
    </test>
    <edit name="family" mode="assign">
      <string>Carlito</string>
      <string>PT Sans</string>
    </edit>
  </match>
  <match target="pattern">
    <test name="family">
      <string>Calibri</string>
    </test>
    <edit name="family" mode="prepend" binding="strong" >
      <string>Carlito</string>
      <string>PT Sans</string>
    </edit>
  </match>

Besides, put the following somewhere in the 'C' section in 90-tt-fonts.conf:

<match target="font">
    <test name="force_autohint">
      <bool>false</bool>
    </test>
    <test name="family">
      <string>Carlito</string>
    </test>
    <edit name="font_type" mode="assign">
      <string>TT Instructed Font</string>
    </edit>
  </match>

Re: infinality-bundle-fonts: a free multilingual font collection for Arch

Thanks. Since I do have Calibri, I think I'll just play a little at the moment. The only time it matters is for "official" documents I get so I'll not set it as the default replacement until I've had a look. (It would have been different before I acquired Calibri but I didn't know I could get the MS fonts for which I had a licence until WonderWoofy, I think, mentioned it.)

Re: infinality-bundle-fonts: a free multilingual font collection for Arch

Try removing the file from your cache and then see if you can install it. (That is, force pacman to re-download it from scratch.)

Re: infinality-bundle-fonts: a free multilingual font collection for Arch

What we really need is a decent hosting instead of this crap… If anyone can donate a few dozens of MBs, please let me know. (Sorry for asking, but I really cannot do anything about it right now…)

@frabjous, please try again.

Re: infinality-bundle-fonts: a free multilingual font collection for Arch

I've gotten some of the packages installed, but overall I keep getting all different manner of server-errors, usually, "error: failed retrieving file '[blahblahblah]-any.pkg.tar.xz' from ibn.net63.net : Connection timed out after 10001 milliseconds".

Perhaps I'll try again when your servers are under less strain. I wish I had server space to donate. I really appreciate your work. I love infinality and what you've done with it so far.

Incidentally, I noticed one other small issue. I had to uninstall the AUR package ttf-sil-fonts (which includes Gentium Plus) before installing ttf-gentium-tug-ibx. These should probably be marked as being in conflict. (Not sure whether or not the other SIL fonts in that package are available in your bundle; Charis and Gentium are really the only ones I use regularly.)

Re: infinality-bundle-fonts: a free multilingual font collection for Arch

I'm having trouble getting 32bit wine to work properly (e.g. the winecfg window is malformed) and I think it has to do with this. Could it be causing this? I'm probably not providing enough information to be helped, but I'm not sure where to start..

I had the same issue but I only had one file to go. Manually downloading it and adding it to the pacman cache worked for me.
