openlogos.ttf updated for new Archlinux logo

I took the liberty of altering the openlogos.ttf font that is available on various sites on the internet. It features the Archlinux logo, but it was still the old one, so I updated it. "B" Is now the new Arch Logo instead of the old one. I admit it's not absolutely 100% perfect but it does the job pretty well for me. (E.g. in conky, guess that's the most common usage)

You can download it HERE

${font openlogos:size=12}B ${font}text

Will give you the Arch logo then return the rest of the conky text to whatever your default font is.

Re: openlogos.ttf updated for new Archlinux logo

Where should the font file go? In with other ttfs?

I usually put them in my ~/.fonts folder, then just refresh my fontconf cache.

Thank you for these fonts, they will help me in my art.

Re: openlogos.ttf updated for new Archlinux logo

I believe that's gnome-font-viewer, available from the gnome-utils package.

It looks like KFontView to me (especially the toolbar), but I don't know gnome-font-viewer at all.

Good point dunc, I didn't even think to look at the toolbar!

Heh! I didn't like to say, "NO! You. Are. Wrong!", but I'm pretty certain it's KFontView.

It's the KDE font viewer, yes.

Re: openlogos.ttf updated for new Archlinux logo

I updated the link in my first post. I had a domain change, it's working again.
I have nothing to do with the one on tetonedge.net, no idea how it got there, btw. And I have no idea where upstream is, I just found the font and modified it... wink

Re: openlogos.ttf updated for new Archlinux logo

Hi! I love this TTF!!

BTW, do you know where I can find the official Arch Linux font, the one used for the logo and the title? I've been googling, but didn't find anything

Thanks

Re: openlogos.ttf updated for new Archlinux logo

The typeface used for the logo text is Karat. The medium weight is available for personal use here

If you only require the official logo, SVG versions of it are in the 'archlinux-artwork' package.

Re: openlogos.ttf updated for new Archlinux logo

just found this and wanted to say thanks!

I've been using that font for ages and always thought it was missing the arch logo, thinking that it was the abiword logo...
