Re: Gohufont : a tiny monospace bitmap font

Hey, I installed the package from AUR but fonts are so different from scrots. I really don't understand what's going on.

Just did the same using yaourt, no problems at all...

Hi.
I created a bitmap font for terminal/coding use, loosely based on montecarlo. I figured you might like it.

Here's a screenshot of what it looks like :

Edit:
Now available in a bigger size (14 px)

If it doesn't look like gohufont, then it's probably not gohufont. It didn't find it and used a fallback font.
Two possible causes:
-- gohufont isn't installed
-- you didn't specify the font properly

You can see if it is installed with these two commands:

fc-list | grep -i gohufont
xlsfonts | grep gohufont

If it isn't, do this:
First, make sure the files are here:

ls /usr/share/fonts/local/gohufont*

Then, we'll run the install script from AUR again.
Make sure that you have the FontPath /usr/share/fonts/local/ to /etc/X11/xorg.conf under the "Files" section"
And:

fc-cache -fs >/dev/null 2>&1
mkfontscale /usr/share/fonts/local
mkfontdir /usr/share/fonts/local
xset fp rehash >/dev/null 2>&1

Re: Gohufont : a tiny monospace bitmap font

blodorn and others interested in gohufont as a console font:

I succesfully converted gohufont-uni-11.bdf to psf.

Here is the quick and dirty howto:

First get the bdf2psf from here: http://packages.debian.org/sid/all/bdf2psf/download
and the bdf version of gohufont: http://font.gohu.eu/gohufont-bdf-2.0.tar.gz

1. Extract gohufont-bdf-2.0.tar.gz

2. Extract bdf2psf_1.54_all.deb with:

bsdtar -xf bdf2psf_1.54_all.deb data.tar.gz && tar xvf data.tar.gz

It will extract in your current directory as usr/{bin,share}.

3. cd to ./usr/bin

Run

./bdf2psf --fb gohufont-uni-11.bdf /whateverpath/current/usr/share/bdf2psf/standard.equivalents /whateverpath/usr/share/bdf2psf/required.set+/whateverpath/usr/share/bdf2psf/useful.set 512 /path/to/gohufont-uni-11.psf

4. Now get to a console using CTRL+ALT+F1 .
Log in as root. Cd to dir containing the gohu psf font. Run:

setfont gohufont-uni-11.psf

Evidence:
tNGlvNg

Edit: When I have more time I'll create PKGBUILD for bdf2psf

Re: Gohufont : a tiny monospace bitmap font

Could you please add support for greek characters? This would make it the best font ever in my opinion. smile

That's great, thanks for sharing! I will try to replicate this and if successful will make the psfs available at font.gohu.eu and in the AUR package.

I believe the unicode versions have full support for greek characters: http://font.gohu.eu/greek.png
If you can't have any of those, there's probably a mistake in your configuration. Make sure you explicitly ask for the unicode version (iso10646-1) if you specify the font by its XLFD.
If there are characters missing, do tell me.

Re: Gohufont : a tiny monospace bitmap font

Oh, what's the unicode version and how can I use it?

Generally what's the preferred way of installing this font?

Re: Gohufont : a tiny monospace bitmap font

Gohu, thanks a lot for your font, i've used it for a while, and took it as a base for erusfont, a mix between montecarlo and your font.


I'm french, don't mind my mistakes in english.

Re: Gohufont : a tiny monospace bitmap font

For what it's worth, this is what I had to do to get the font to work on my Debian system:

curl -O http://font.gohu.eu/gohufont-2.0.tar.gz
tar xf gohu*gz
mv gohufont-2.0 /usr/share/fonts/X11
cd !:2
mkfontscale
mkfontdir
fc-cache

I also had to add this line in the "Files" section of /etc/X11/xorg.conf

FontPath "/usr/share/fonts/X11/gohufont-2.0"

and restart the X server.

Re: Gohufont : a tiny monospace bitmap font

After finally installing Arch on my netbook, I decided to try Gohufont: it is now my preferred terminal font. Nice work and thank you.

It seems that gohu.eu is down, so I have uploaded a copy of version 2 to my site:

Re: Gohufont : a tiny monospace bitmap font

Yes, sorry about that... gohu.eu is/was home-hosted, but I have moved and I don't have internet in my new home yet. It will take a few days before it is up again (but it will!).
Thanks for the mirror!

Re: Gohufont : a tiny monospace bitmap font

So I've used this guide trying to use gohu as my console font on boot and it never works out. I followed this guide only changing the version number in the extraction of the deb. Then I copied it to /usr/share/kbd/consolefonts and even chown-ed it to root in case that was the issue. I changed my vconsole to point to the font, changed mkinitcpio.conf to include consolefonts. The best way to describe the problem is that it doesn't know what character to use for what letter. I think this has to do with the FONT_MAP option in vconsole but I don't know what to change it to... Any ideas? If I should repost this in the newbie section I will but I figured it pertained to this thread...
