Hi every body.
I recently install Slackware 9, and everything works fine apart from the fonts in X that are really horribles !
Especially using Mozilla. Menu and web pages fonts are crab, and I don't know how to sort it out.
Any idea ?
note: this diidn't happen with the slack 8.1 I had before
On http://cgm.cs.mcgill.ca/~luc/freefonts.html there is a link to "dara". Download the zip, unzip the files (rename them to .ttf in lower case) and copy them all to /usr/X11/lib/fonts/TTF/.
Wait 30 seconds or restart X.
Thanks for your quick response. I 'll try this asap!
On another hand, I solved the 'basic' ugly font pb by installing freetype2-2.1.4rc2-i386-2dl.tgz !
Everything looks better now, but I'll had the paket you told me to the colection of fonts in /usr/X11/lib/fonts/TTF/.
