Nothing yet on fonts in this sub-forum [originally posted 2009 Jan 19, updated 2010 Apr 29]? That will never do. Take a look at Pa Penguin's Favorite Free Fonts. Download (approx. 2 MB) available from Pa Penguin's Icebox: http://www.pa-mcclamrock.com/themescheme.html#freefonts. Here's what they look like:



The .PET will install these TrueType fonts to /root/.fonts, where they'll be all ready to use; if there are any you don't want, you need only delete them from there. (Just don't try to sell any of these fonts to anyone.) Feel free to add your own favorite free fonts to this thread too!

How these fonts are licenced? Because I'm currently publishing books, I must respect copyright on fonts and I can't include or use fonts that are not suitable to using commercially (GPLled can be used)

The only restriction mentioned by either Fonts101.com or EKNP.com is that the fonts themselves are not to be sold. The DejaVu fonts are available under this license: http://dejavu-fonts.org/wiki/index.php?title=License.

could you include license for any font in next release? it is very important: license gives you permission to use font as stated in license, otherwise, you have not valid argument (legally speaking). I here

http://puppylover.netsons.org/dokupuppy/programs:fonts

have linked only fonts with proper own license, to prevent any legal warning

Sorry, I've already told you all I was told by the sites I got the fonts from. Many of these fonts have been around for a long time; I remember Agincort, Classic Typewriter, Manuscript, Pilgrim, and others from Expert Software's "CD Fonts," which I got for about $10 (US) in about 1997. Frankly, I'm not sure anyone knows or cares who the copyright holder is (if there still is one), and I am pretty sure a dispute about these fonts would not be worth more than about two seconds of a lawyer's valuable time. I guess there is still a conjectural possibility, though, that a copyright holder still exists and an agent or attorney for the copyright holder might imaginably complain. If it happens, I'll deal with it, but I am not holding my breath!

yes, it's true, but a publishing house must have certain proofs of font's license loyalty. Tipically, I send, with pdf for publication, also license included in font. this makes fully legal using a font.

since my books have a very complex layout-design, usually, I use custom free opensource fonts and then I sent pdfs exported from app

Hi guys.

Now fonts are not my thing. If something is legible then I'm fine with it. But, this may or may not be interesting to you guys (or guys and gals watching this thread).

A font editor.

"Fontforge'

You may know of it, you may have it, but did you get it from a .pet? Well you can now. Ttuuxxx compiled it earlier this year and I used it to turn .svg files that jebaJQ8 made for the weather font in Pwidgets to glyphs and construct a font. It is very easy yet very powerful. It has the tools to construct a font from scratch, and web based help, not bad for a 4.5M pet.

Enough hoo har, here it is... http://www.puppylinux.asia/tpp/ttuuxxx/programs/Utilities/fontforge-smallPy.pet

If you want 465 free TTF fonts I found this debian/ubuntu package, just download and extract/copy it to /usr/share/fonts/default/TTF
http://ppa.launchpad.net/corenominal/ubuntu/pool/main/t/ttf-aefonts/ttf-aefonts_0.0.1-0ubuntu1~ppa0.tar.gz
the website where I found it was
http://crunchbang.org/archives/2007/10/13/465-free-fonts-for-ubuntu/
Have fun Smile

@markofkane: use 'em with the Gimp too, if you play with graphics....i'd guess pretty much any programs where you'd be using fonts, as in Window$.

cheers,

russoodle

Thanks. It seems that font type HTML won't work in Puppy Linux, it seems all fonts look the same on webpages.

Color works and size works.

Maybe I'm wrong, lol. Laughing

arrrgghhh....that'll teach me to make assumptions regarding things i know bugger-all about...i know some fonts, at least, work using the Gimp in Puppy because many of the members here are using them in their wallpaper graphics and i just thought they'd work across the gamut of most other apps as well....got a lot to learn, i have.

What exactly do you mean by "font type HTML"? Is that a particular font-face or do you mean that any font you use doesn't show up as coded in an html page?
