Installing Fonts: (Linux Users)


If you have root password of your system:

Download the fonts.zip file and unzip it to some directory.
This will extract .ttf files
Give the following commands:
  • mkdir   -p /usr/local/share/fonts/ttfonts
  • cd   /usr/local/share/fonts/ttfonts
  • copy the .ttf files into this directory.
  • ttmkfdir   -o fonts.scale
  • mkfontdir
  • chkfontpath   --add /usr/local/share/fonts/ttfonts
  • /etc/rc.d/init.d/xfs   restart.



If you do not have the root password:

Xdvng is provided as a "bdf" package, while DV-TTYogesh is provided as a .tar file.

Untar the xdvng.tar file using the following command:

tar -xvf xdvng.tar

This will create a directory named "xdvng".
Then type-in the following commands:
cd xdvng
mkfontdir $PWD
xset fp+ $PWD
xset fp rehash


In the .xinitrc file write the following:
xset fp+   ~your_directory/xdvng; xset fp rehash

Untar the dvttyogesh.tar file into a directory say "dvttyogeshdir"
Goto that directory and type-in the following commands:
ttmkfdir > fonts.scale
mkfontdir

In the .xinitrc file write the following:
xset fp+   ~your_directory/dvttyogeshdir; xset fp rehash
