Debian font

Postby Scotti » 2005-11-08 01:42

I did plenty of searching, but all I found were posts and threads about Debian font packages and font issues. What I'm trying to find out is what is the name of the Debian font, the one in the logo. Could anyone tell me what it is? Thanks! :)

I don't think there is such a font, it was just drawn by the artist.

Hmm, well the Debian Women logo has the word "Women" in the same font. I'm thinking it must be a real font.

It's a quite expensive commercial font. Dunno why they chose to use it, because I can't think of any way to legally use a vector image with that font...

The website font-freak.com has lots of ripoffs of real fonts. Maybe you can find a good one there?
Arr, ese!
