Webcore Fonts

Download webcore-fonts-3.0.tar.gz from :

http://avi.alkalay.net/software/webcore-fonts/

tar xf webcore-fonts-3.0.tar.gz  Creates folder webcore-fonts
Fonts are in folders fonts and vista.
mkdir ~/.fonts
mv webcore-fonts ~/.fonts

Add these lines to .fonts.conf  to have these fonts look decent :

<match target="font">
<test name="family">
<string>Candara</string>
<string>Segoe</string>
<string>Corbel</string>
<string>Tahoma</string>
<string>Verdana</string>
</test>
<edit mode="assign" name="autohint">
<bool>true</bool>
</edit>
</match>
<match target="font">
<test compare="more" name="weight">
<const>medium</const>
</test>
<edit mode="assign" name="autohint">
<bool>false</bool>
</edit>
</match>

  1. Eric-- where is the .font.conf file? There are several of those on my ubuntu 11.04 system.

    .fonts.conf is in your home directory. ( don't forget the dot ! ). There is only one such file.
