Adding Raize font in Linux

Posted by admin on Nov 23, 2009 in Unix |

Raize is a great font for programming because it is clean and clear. Download it here http://www.raize.com/devtools/tools/raize_font_linux-1.0.tar.gz or here http://www.raize.com/devtools/tools/rzfont.asp and install as follows

Step 1

Untar to ~./fonts or /usr/share/fonts

Step 2

You need to remove the “no-bitmap” link and replace it with the “yes-bitmap” one

# rm /etc/fonts/conf.d/70-no-bitmaps.conf
# ln -s /etc/fonts/conf.avail/70-yes-bitmaps.conf /etc/fonts/conf.d/

Step 3

Then you need to reconfigure the fonts package

# dpkg-reconfigure fontconfig
Cleaning up category truetype..
Cleaning up category type1..
. . .
Updating category cid..
Regenerating fonts cache… done.

Thats all.
