How to add a Burmese font to Monospace?

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


I would like to add a Burmese font to the Monospace family (in order todisplay the glyphs for the Unicode Ranges U+1000 to U+1100). I have somettf-files to choose from (e.g. MyaZedi.ttf), but I don't know how toconfigure them. Especially I have no clue about how to assign a familyname to a ttf-font or to determine it from the ttf-file, if it iscompiled into it. I tried fontforge on the installed fonts forMonospace, but I only get information, which seems to be similar to whatI find declared in my conf.d-files, but no exact matches.
On my system (Linux Suse 10.2, KDE) I use Monospace Bold as a defaultfont in my KDE-konsole as well as in vim/gvim. When I follow the inputsto these programs with strace I get the following informations for thefonts to be loaded for various alphabets:
Latin: /usr/share/fonts/truetype/DejaVuSansMono-Bold.ttfJapanese: /usr/share/fonts/truetype/ipag.ttfArabic: /usr/share/fonts/truetype/terafikb.ttfHindi: /usr/share/fonts/truetype/Gargi_1.7.ttfArmenian:/usr/share/fonts/truetype/FreeMono.ttfGeorgian: /usr/share/fonts/truetype/FreeMonoBold.ttf
For these files I get in fontforge the following families:DejaVuSansMono-Bold.ttf: Deja Vu Sans Monoipag.ttf: IPAGothicterafikb.ttf: Terafik BoldGargi_1.7.ttf: Gargi_1.7FreeMono.ttf: FreeMonoFreeMonoBold: FreeMono

As far as I understood, the fontfamily is selected in the file /etc/fonts/conf.d/40-generic.conf. On my system this files looks like this:
<?xml version="1.0"?>> <!DOCTYPE fontconfig SYSTEM "fonts.dtd">> <fontconfig>> <!-->   Mark common families with their generics so we'll get>   something reasonable> -->>> <!-->   Serif faces>  -->>         <alias>>                 <family>Bitstream Vera Serif</family>>                 <family>DejaVu Serif</family>>                 <family>Times New Roman</family>>                 <family>Times</family>>                 <family>Nimbus Roman No9 L</family>>                 <family>Luxi Serif</family>>                 <family>Kochi Mincho</family>>                 <family>AR PL SungtiL GB</family>>                 <family>AR PL Mingti2L Big5</family>>                 <family>MS 明朝</family>>                 <family>Baekmuk Batang</family>>                 <family>SimSun</family>>                 <family>FreeSerif</family>>                 <family>MgOpen Canonica</family>>                 <default><family>serif</family></default>>         </alias>> <!-->   Sans-serif faces>  -->>         <alias>>                 <family>Bitstream Vera Sans</family>>                 <family>DejaVu Sans</family>>                 <family>Helvetica</family>>                 <family>Arial</family>>                 <family>Verdana</family>>                 <family>Albany AMT</family>>                 <family>Nimbus Sans L</family>>                 <family>Luxi Sans</family>>                 <family>Kochi Gothic</family>>                 <family>AR PL KaitiM GB</family>>                 <family>AR PL KaitiM Big5</family>>                 <family>MS ゴシック</family>>                 <family>Baekmuk Dotum</family>>                 <family>FreeSans</family>>                 <family>MgOpen Modata</family>>                 <default><family>sans-serif</family></default>>        </alias>><!-->   Monospace faces>  -->>         <alias>>                 <family>Bitstream Vera Sans Mono</family>>                 <family>DejaVu Sans Mono</family>>                 <family>Courier</family>>                 <family>Courier New</family>>                 <family>Andale Mono</family>>                 <family>Luxi Mono</family>>                 <family>Cumberland AMT</family>>                 <family>Nimbus Mono L</family>>                 <family>NSimSun</family>>                 <family>FreeMono</family>>                 <default><family>monospace</family></default>>         </alias>> </fontconfig>>> 
Can anybody explain me how the family Names are assigned to the ttf-files and what I have to do to make my font becoming member of the Monospace family?
Best regards,Harald
