bitmap-fonts

A collection of monospaced bitmap fonts for X11, good for terminal use. These fonts were not created by me, the authors are listed below. Some of these fonts may be out of date. If something doesn't work check the archives file and see if there is a readme included with the font, or take a look at the creators website listed below.

This repo is an attempt to catalog all existing bdf/pcf fonts.

Please submit a pull request if there are any bdf/pcf fonts that you want added. Any bdf/pcf fonts will be accepted.

Installation:

git clone https://github.com/Tecate/bitmap-fonts.git
cd bitmap-fonts
sudo cp -avr bitmap/ /usr/share/fonts
xset fp+ /usr/share/fonts/bitmap
fc-cache -fv

Bitmap fonts are disabled by default on Kali, Ubuntu, Linux Mint, and more.

To fix this enter the following commands:

cd /etc/fonts/conf.d/
sudo rm /etc/fonts/conf.d/10*  
sudo rm -rf 70-no-bitmaps.conf 
sudo ln -s ../conf.avail/70-yes-bitmaps.conf .
sudo dpkg-reconfigure fontconfig
