I like using a font called IBM 3270 Medium for my monospace needs where Fira Code doesn't work. Either that or More Perfect DOS VGA.


eurostile. It's the font of the future.


Whats the best bitmap font to use for terminal???



i'm looking for a good proprietary font. /tech/ friendly suggestions?

Microsoft fonts are my favorites outside of the terminal (Arial specifically) because they don't look like dog shit when you turn antialiasing off.

For the terminal I use Terminus.


Cantarell is used in all the office documents at the home renovation company I work for. The documents are mostly contracts and invoices.

We use Cantarell because all the employees in the office use GNOME on their workstations, which uses Cantarell, so everyone already has the font regardless of whether they're on Debian or Fedora or Ubuntu.


monofur for Powerline



>turning off antialiasing

brainlet move tbqh w/ u fam



I use terminus EVERYWHERE!


Sans Serif, why would anyone need anything else?

If you like bmp fonts, check out tewi and tamsyn (normal sizes of the latter aren't super impressive or anything, but really really small sizes are possible without turning into eye cancer, like 5x7)


This is a hotwheels thread.

Gentium: produced by a religious organization to render the most beautiful and readable print material - particularly the Holy Bible - in pretty much any western language. Supports Latin, Cyrillic, and Greek scripts, with thousands of characters and glyphs.




If his screen has enough dpi, anti-aliasing for fonts is meaningless.



A worse Helvetica, abandoned even by Google.

This whole imageboard uses windows fonts and without windows fonts it looks like shit.

Only in chrome it looks bearable. Firefox and Waterfox display 8chan is small edgy fonts that hurt eyes.

Anyone remember this classic? Ow the edge.



Terminux font is better



literally whatever is there by default and if it's shit change it to the next available option

>If you have the skill, make your own!

I made an 8x8 pixel latin (not ASCII, fuck your UNIX trash) font a while ago. it took a few hours..

SGI Screen, terminus as fallback for slavrunes (fonts clash due to slightly different perceived size, but mixed-language texts are rare enough for this not being problem)

>URxvt*font: xft:Screen:size=10,xft:terminus:size=10



That's your own choice to have small fonts. Web browsers actually have the ability to change the default font size.




This site looks fine with Liberation Sans.



Why would I want shitty mush fonts when I could have pure pixels?


I posted a font called "aneu" in a similar thread recently, did anyone download it? My drive died, and since it was in /usr/share/fonts it didn't cross my mind that I wasn't backing it up




I guess 8ch is archived and indexed by search engines now. Not sure how I feel about that.

old ansi font incoming


Does anyone else feel like the constant switching between bitmap and antialiased fonts is tiring ?



I’m sick of the switching... I prefer bitmap for the simplicity and they can look just as good if not better depending on the resolution



You are objectively wrong, especially when it comes to chink/gook runes. I use bitmaps on my 768p shitpad because I can't get enough readable information on the screen otherwise. The density on my 1440p monitor is high enough that bitmaps can gtfo. Pretty much anything >96DPI makes bitmaps a retarded meme.



Why doesn't /g/ take five minutes to consider that this isn't 4chan?



What's your density? I still use "xos4 Terminus:size=12" on my 1440p 27" monitor.



>favourite font

Arimo and Roboto



You don't spend a lot of time working with code, do you?



but cantarel is only used by gtk for the ui

for print you better use liberation sans / mono



The Absolute madman!



ok, all you niggers need to fix your fonts


with this you only need RGB enabled, no hinting, no AA, no nothing



Was this written by a retard ?

I can't understand a damn thing.




Stop with this old meme. Infinality was dead once the patents on truetype expired. Fonts render perfectly fine without that shit if they are configured correctly.




read the post retard



It's High School Goth Chick: The Font



Nice, linux libertine mono was the only mono serif font I could find as well. Extremely comfy.



I've read twilight fiction that wasn't this innept.

In fact the whole infinality community looks like an offshoot of xda developers but for tranny brazillian arch users.

Like just look at that issue op.

This. Infinality is totally useless since freetype 2.8.
