Hey everybody,

I've put up two new fonts for Qtopia on my blog.
Basically it's an unhinted version of the Trebuchet font included with Cacko and an unhinted and converted version of Calibri:

Here is a comparison:


Read more about it here.

Regards,
Andre

PS: I know there might be legal issues with posting the converted fonts. So, if anybody complains I'll take it down. smile.gif

I've posted part 2 on my blog. It deals with tweaking the free DejaVu Sans font: http://katastrophos.net/andre/blog/?p=16

Also, part 1 did get an update: http://katastrophos.net/andre/blog/?p=15

Andre

bam: all you need is makeqpf and access to framebuffer (real one or Qvfb) - there are many howtos on net.

grab qpf-*.tar.bz2 archives and you will get some fonts for usage with Qtopia.

I've got them install, they look real good, till you rotate the screen. Then they turn into a pixlated mess.

The rotated font set is probably missing. You will need extra qpf files with the t10 bits in the filename. See http://www.users.on.net/~hluc/myZaurus/custom.html#fonts

I knew thick fonts didn't work, wasn't too worried about that just yet, the eye doctor makes me stop at 20/5! I'll check out the rotated font part.

i = italic, t# = rotated

No difference between Zaurus models.

fontname_SIZE_BOLDFLAGi_tROTATION.qpf

SIZE = 10 * fontsize
BOLDFLAG = 50 - normal
BOLDFLAG = 75 - bold
i = italic
t5 - 90°
t10 - 180°
t15 - 270°

under 2.4 kernel most Zauruses are 270° rotated
