thanks for reporting that.
i dont recall ever having to do any of "mkfontdir inside each directory, xset +fp <path> for each directory, and fc-cache -f". i guess i'm just one of the lucky ones for whome simply placing them in ~/.fonts is sufficient.

did my attempt to split them up into different directories just muck it up?
trying to reproduce here (yeah, my trisquel on the netbook does it the same). [edit: see possible fix at bottom of reply]

are you sure you have the necessities for displaying otb format bitmap fonts? [edit: see possible fix at bottom of reply]

does wastage not show up either? ~ it's not otb format. [edit : oops, did i not include wastage in dbtfc2... i think i meant to]

what os/distro are you on?
iirc, debian(-based) recently(ish) made a change requiring user intervention to restore .otb xwindow bitmap font capability. (i have failed to find the wiki page on that in a timely manner though) [edit: see possible fix at bottom of reply]

now up on https://notabug.org/Digit/dbtfc if that's of any help.


~ ah! 30 tabs and a lot of searching later, and i find this possible fix in the waybackmachine, hope this is what solves it: https://web.archive.org/web/20130917180917/http://crunchbanglinux.org/wiki/howto/font_rendering
see the bit about bitmap fonts? seems some folks have a real aversion to bitmap fonts that they've been getting disabled upstream by default. tsk tsk. Feb 05 2016

i'm not entirely clear about what you mean, but some fonts are wide, most are as narrow as i could make. these are otb format, bitmap fonts, and as such, wont scale well, if at all.

in slackware, they scale, in all other distros i've tried, they are fixed at the size they are, pixel perfect. i've yet to determine what slackware has set different to perhaps have access to toggle scalability of bitmap fonts. Apr 06 2015

it sufficed at getting me sorted with a scrot again. ;)
what a horrible link, cant seem to access the .png (or jpg/whatever)... and it didnt really show it off as much as i hoped for. but thnx for playing. :) you win the competition. ;D Jul 04 2012
i find myself once again between screenshot facilities ( i change my wm and other components so often), and so, i put out to you folks a "competition" (of sorts), where u are challenged to present in this comment section, a link to a screenshot of smplgut-q (ideally showing it off in as many parts (scroll bars, trees, buttons, selections, etc) as possible), before i get around to it.

your challenge:

---"i've used over 400 distinct .iso of gnu operating systems (or bsd, and a few others dotted around)."

--There isn't over 400 distributions of HURD operating system... Only a few and they don't even work well as HURD isn't working operating system.

--GNU would have their own operating system working if Linus would not have started Linux what gathered OS developers around it.

--Even that GNU project maintains/develops great system programs, system utilities and many application programs and libraries, they just have failed with HURD operating system and good luck is that we have Linux to take its place.


i cant tell if you're trying to be funny, or if you really do have such a wacko take of the situation. that^s probably just trolling, but incase it's not, i shall respond.

linus made a kernel, he and some others might call it an opperating system, but i think the majority of us call an opperating system the combination of all the parts of the... operating system. not just the kernel.

it is the GNU opperating system. and the Linux Kernel. and the HURD kernel ~ which itself is broken up into smaller components, including a micro kernel. ... and you get the BSD opperating system, and it uses the BSD kernel.

Linux, or whatever kernel you use, is almost certainly only a very small portion of your complete opperating system.

~ on a side note about the hurd... HURD development continues, and is actually quite useable, though not yet recommended for mission critical or production environment yet. i recently heard they're looking around for a new microkernel to replace mach with. i think i heard someone mention reviving old L4 sources. It's really powerful technology, i can see why it's worth continuing to develop.

just because we so often use the word "linux" as shorthand for GNU|Linux, doesnt really mean the opperating system is called linux, in a strict sense.

to further clarify the point, about gnu or bsd being the name of the opperating system and the words linux and hurd being the kernels, my favorite main distro is gentoo. i could go for gentoo with a hurd, bsd, or linux kernel. or even some others (but lets not confuse things further).
i could do so with all the same stuff to interface with, just a different kernel (and a few compatibility changes). same opperating system install, different kernels.

kernel != opperating system.

they're not synonymous.

... unless you're the unique breed of "kernel developer". ;p

if you want to put this to the test further, try running your "opperating system" without everything but the kernel, and see how well the system opperatates. :P XD ;D


so anyways, when i said gnu, i didnt mean hurd, as you seemed to interpret it. i meant gnu. as in GNU|Linux, *AND* GNU|HURD, and whatever else is on the go too. it was a conscious decision to use the word gnu alone, because not all distros i had used, used the linux kernel. some used hurd, some used xen, and i think there were even a few that used other stuff too... after about 300 you kinda start to loose track of it all.

i hope that makes sense to you now, you probable jester you. ^_^

p.s.
amen for the freedom to interchange ALL components of our free software opperating systems. ... on that note, oh for more alternatives to gcc and xorg. ;D Feb 08 2012
i've used over 400 distinct .iso of gnu operating systems (or bsd, and a few others dotted around).

i currently have in regular use, Toorox, Gentoo, Crunchbang(Debian/sid), Arch, Slitaz and Slackware.

ubuntu has never been a recommendation of mine. not a serious one anyway. but of course, it crops up all over the place (both vanilla and it's derivatives), pimping its unique ways of doing things, which frankly, i see as a subtle and insidious form of soft lock-in, diminishing people's ease of jumping between distros.

not good.

being pissed on is not good.

i knew ubuntu was dead to me came win7. before that statement gives you ideas, know this; i detest proprietary software, and have a special dislike for microsoft considering what few of their many atrocities i know of, but having said that, i still have to point out to people, that development for win7 vs development for ubuntu 10.10, it was microsoft, not canonical, who come out best when it comes to listening to the user-base. :O this is not some exoneration of proprietary/microsoft/windoze, or some damning of freesoftware/opensource/gnu/linux, this is just because .... well, i was about to say because ubuntu failed, but indeed, like the guy said before, it's because shuttleworth loves to piss on us. lol.

i'm not really digging your "ubuntu is debian" sentiment, but totally agree with you on the longevity of software. i had a flirtation with slackware for that very reason. Oct 15 2011
... by those who place a higher importance on form than content.

... the rest of us look for content over form, and can listen to the message just fine, when someone abbreviates, doesnt use capitals, uses netspeak, has dislexia etc. :P

i pity the fools who close their minds to those who wont/dont/cant adhere to the rules formal education set down for them. Oct 15 2011
