Fedora in Greek #2

Fedora in Greek #2

Προέρχεται από τον simosx.

Fedora Core 5 (Greek) when configured to use the DejaVu fonts as the main fonts. The DejaVu fonts are available from Fedora Extras (use the Package Manager to install). You then need to edit /etc/fonts/fonts.conf by replacing “Bitstream Vera” with “DejaVu”.

This is 10pt, which is closer to the default size (is the default 10pt or 12pt?).

    Fedora should really enable the bytecode interpreter for the hinting instructions. It makes glyphs like φ look bad.

  1. Thanks for the tip, I was not aware about that.

    On general enabling the Bytecode Interpreter,

    On enabling the Bytecode Interpreter in Fedora the easy way,
    and specifically the section “Building an RPM file from a *.src.rpm file”.
