I am trying to install a new font on Cygwin. Lots of websites give tricks for an old Cygwin where everything was inside:
Some say it's easy with this:
cp /cygdrive/c/WINDOWS/Fonts/*.[tT][tT][fF] /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/ttf/
I guess with the Cygwin 7.4 fonts are located into
I tried to run
xfontsel and I have very few fonts installed. I would like to install DejaVu Sans Mono and Consolas. Is is possible? How?
Anyway, I naively tried this:
mkdir /usr/share/fonts/ttf/ cp /cygdrive/c/WINDOWS/Fonts/consola*.ttf /usr/share/fonts/ttf/ xset fp rehash xfontsel
But I still see few fonts with a pretty bad anti-aliasing and the TTF fonts are not visible.
I also get errors here:
$ xset +fp /usr/share/fonts/ttf xset: bad font path element (#0), possible causes are: Directory does not exist or has wrong permissions Directory missing fonts.dir Incorrect font server address or syntax
