@res,

You can poke around in the AUR font listings: http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?O … _Search=Go, and click on the PKGBUILD link on one or more, to see how it's done for fonts.

I'm not sure what you mean? wink

Re: Gohufont : a tiny monospace bitmap font

That link takes you to the search page for font-related packages in the Arch User Repository.  Click on any package listed there to go to a page for that package.  For example, there is an entry "artwiz-latin1-fonts" that takes you to http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=10786.  On that page you'll see a line like this:

Tarball :: Files :: PKGBUILD

Click on the PKGBUILD link to see the PKGBUILD file for artwiz-latin1-fonts:

# Contributor: gyo <nucleogeek_at_gmail_dot_com>

pkgname=artwiz-latin1-fonts
pkgver=1.1
pkgrel=2
pkgdesc="A set of artwiz fonts ISO-8859-1."
url="http://sourceforge.net/projects/artwiz-latin1/"
license=('GPL')
depends=(xorg-fonts-encodings xorg-font-utils fontconfig)
install=artwiz-latin1-fonts.install
source=(http://switch.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/artwiz-latin1/artwiz-latin1-$pkgver.tgz)
md5sums=(5d499d188f5e218ca84b52ccd39701b1)
conflicts=(artwiz-fonts)

build() {
    cd $startdir/src/artwiz-latin1
    mkdir -p $startdir/pkg/usr/share/fonts/artwiz-latin1-fonts
    install -m644 *.pcf.gz $startdir/pkg/usr/share/fonts/artwiz-latin1-fonts/
    install -m644 fonts.* ${startdir}/pkg/usr/share/fonts/artwiz-latin1-fonts/
}

Repeat a few times with other packages to get an idea of what PKGBUILDs look like for font packages.  You can possibly download one and use it as a template for your own.

Re: Gohufont : a tiny monospace bitmap font

I really like this one, but I can't get urxvt to use the medium version, it won't start with anything but the wildcard for the weight, and then it'll use the bold one...

anyone else get this ?

URxvt*font:    -gohu-gohufont-medium-*

That works with me.
Are you sure the medium one is installed ? Try `xlsfonts | grep gohufont` to check.

I ran fc-cache, also logged out and logged back in, but urxvt fails to start (I used the above given line in my .Xdefaults)

urxvt: unable to load base fontset, please specify a valid one using -fn, aborting.

I can use gohu in xterm, but only if I used the following:

*faceName: gohufont

Any suggestions?

Try running `xlsfonts | grep gohufont` to check that you have gohufont installed as a core X font. You probably don't and that's the problem.
fc-cache renews the fontconfig cache, that is another way of accessing fonts. (you can list these with fc-list)
You can either:
-- use "*font: xft:gohufont" in your Xresources (xft == fontconfig)
-- install gohufont as a core X font with "mkfontdir" and use the "*font: -gohu-gohufont-*" line

you could read up on "packer" and "Pkgbuild" in archwiki that should help with learning how to install AUR packages

Re: Gohufont : a tiny monospace bitmap font

Oh look, what is that?

Is that a bigger, 14 px gohufont coming up? Seems like it...

Aims at being stylistically close to the smaller version, but in a bigger size for those who don't have bionic eyes!

It is currently in test drive and should be available shortly smile

Awesome news. Can't wait for this.

I have converted gohufont for usage with my Rockbox powered MP3 player and have been using it since a while now. Took a pic of it here.
The 14 px version will be much better on this, too yikes

I hope to see a release soon smile

I usually sit at my chair and the monitor is way too far to be able to read the text @ 9px and smaller.

Ok, I may be a slight bit biased, but that's the first time I see it on a portable device and I think it looks really good on this smile
Oh, and is that a Filco? Where did you get these nice colored keycaps?

Anyways, about the 14 px font...
Here it is!
As before, http://font.gohu.eu for pics and downloads (well, if you are on this forum, you probably run Arch so you should prefer the AUR package, which I updated too).

Re: Gohufont : a tiny monospace bitmap font

blodorn:

Get psftools and the bdf version of gohufont.

Convert gohufont bdf to psf using bdf2psf and place the converted font in /usr/share/kbd/consolefonts/

issue: setfont gohufont.psf

See if it works.

I installed psftools but i do not seem to have any bdf2psf. There is a raw2psf which i tried it and it gave me an error font height 90. so i used

raw2psf --height=11 gofont-11.bdf gohufont-11.psf

when issuing setfont it says "setfont: font position 32 is nonblank" "setfont: backround will look funny" and then everything does in fact looks funny. Any idea what other arguments i would need to use to make this work?

Re: Gohufont : a tiny monospace bitmap font

Is there a way to get the 11px font in conky? When i upgraded the 11px changed to the 14px font. I tried gohufont:size11 but that didn't work out.

You can use the following lines in you .conkyrc:

use_xft yes
xftfont Gohufont:pixelsize=11
