This Konsole font name

Postby malu » 2017-10-30 01:04

Hi, I really want to know the name of this bitmap fixed width font, I've searched and found some similar, but not that one. Tried several font identifiers to no avail, so I'm here to ask human beings, what font is this? thx

From the rTorrent Wikipedia page:

Looks like https://github.com/flesler/dotfiles/tree/master/fonts/dina

http://www.donationcoder.com/Software/Jibz/Dina/

Can't find a Debian package for it though, which is weird 'cos I use it :?

EDIT: the Arch package generates the font files from the .bdfs with this function (replace $srcdir with the download directory):
Code: Select all
build() {
    cd "$srcdir/BDF"

    sed -i 's/microsoft-cp1252/ISO8859-1/' *.bdf

    for i in Dina_i400-*.bdf; do
        bdftopcf -t -o DinaItalic$(_ex_pt $i).pcf $i
    done
    for i in Dina_i700-*.bdf; do
        bdftopcf -t -o DinaBoldItalic$(_ex_pt $i).pcf $i
    done
    for i in Dina_r400-*.bdf; do
        bdftopcf -t -o DinaMedium$(_ex_pt $i).pcf $i
    done
    for i in Dina_r700-*.bdf; do
        bdftopcf -t -o DinaBold$(_ex_pt $i).pcf $i
    done
    gzip *.pcf
}

Then it copies the resulting .gz files to /usr/share/fonts/misc/

There is also a 75-yes-dina.conf file but I don't think you actually need that: https://git.archlinux.org/svntogit/comm ... /dina-font

FWIW, Arch copies that to /etc/fonts/conf.avail/ and symlinks it to /etc/fonts/conf.d/75-yes-dina.conf

the font's name is Terminus.
small size.
i'm 100% sure.
available in every well-groomed software repository.

No, it's not.

Check the lower-case letter "e" — terminus has a flat bottom curve whereas the OP's font curls up by 1 pixel at the end ;)

indeed!
in that small size, i could think of more candidates - there's really only so much you can do with a few pixels.
but maybe it is dina, then?
anyhow, lesson learned: lots of nice bitmap fonts are avail.

In my opinion that's a Terminus font, font size 9 used to use it year ago. I remember correct that i used Terminus=9

I may be wrong but to me looks identic :)

Edit: @malu, Install Terminus font and check yourself?
sudo apt-get install xfonts-terminus
Font size=9

Thanks. I think it might be Terminus. Dina has bigger square brackets than the ones of the picture. The square brackets from Terminus are more like it. Both are good fonts.

There are lots of good bitmap fonts, as said above. I'm going to use Terminus for now. Another good one I've found is the Envy Code R font. It's different, but I think it also looks good on terminal.

mods of terminus exist.
one is called terminusmod: http://sourceforge.net/projects/terminusmod
another is termsyn: http://sourceforge.net/projects/termsyn/ which is based on terminus and tamsyn.
tamsyn is a very nice font in its own right.
