Hi,
I wanted to add MS fonts to my Lupu 5.25.... so I started to dig a bit in the forum and found that THIS OLD THREAD contains a small package of font that I think are FREE to use, as they come from an old public file published by MS long time ago.

I only converted the .Pet to .SFS file, and renamed them both.
Download ~5MB:
.SFS FILE
.PET File

YAY, thank you! Easy download, easy installation. Works like a charm in Firefox (that was to be expected Wink but still it looks so much better now).

Kind regards,
Th.

How do I use a Windows TT font I downloaded from the internet? Shinobar's Winfonts.pet only looks in Windows and I don't have Windows in this machine.
The font I want to try is Chinese Watch Shop.

In general, you can put the TT font(*.ttf) in '/usr/share/fonts/default/TTF' by the ROX-Filer.
You may need to run a command 'fc-cache -f' from a terminal. You can see the available fonts by Gfontsel or by the command 'fc-list'.

It seems not chinese font. Its file size is only 59kB, too small if you want to show chinese characters.

Its not a chinese font, just the name have the word 'chinese'...
No big deal, Flash, you can add it trough pfont or pfont2 (or simply copy it to /ust/share/fonts/Default/TTF).

Thanks, Shinobar and GustavoYz. I copied the TTF file to /usr/share/fonts/default/TTF and then I was able to see it in Menu -> Desktop -> Gfontsel font viewer. Smile As you say, GustavoYz, it is not a Chinese font, but an English font that someone saw on the door of an old Chinese watch shop somewhere.

The font only looks right when the letters are large, so it needs to fill the screen. Maybe it would look good as the title font for a black-and-white retro Puppy.

I find after installing fonts, bold letter on the web (or at least on the Wiki) no longer show in bold. For example, the questions on this page should be bold, and were until install fonts
http://puppylinux.org/wikka/FrequentlyAskedQuestions

anyone else experienced this? is there a work around?

After installing the msfonts .pet the CJK fonts are disabled - Chinese, Japanese and Korean characters are displayed as squares. Uninstall msfonts and reading in those languages is normal again. The CJK fonts are from langpack_cjk.

Thanks, I'm trying this today ; -)

Can't reproduce the error, but I'm going to keep using your version of /etc/fonts/local.conf

Sorry to be a bummer but doesn't MS have copyright on its fonts (except for like 8 that it released to public 10+ years back).
