Inconsolata, with italics and bold, in .otf format

Inconsolata is a nice monospace programming font. Unfortunately, it doesn't come with italics and bold versions by default. I have used a version from MihailJP/Inconsolata-LGC that does, and converted them using FontForge to .otf (Open Font Format) for easy installation.


If it doesn't already exist, make a directory ~/.fonts/Library and put these files there. That's it. Now other software should be able to find and use the Inconsolata LGC fonts. Works in Ubuntu, at least.

Then for Emacs (if you use Emacs) put

emacs.font:      InconsolataLGC-12

in your .Xresources (or some other font size than 12) and say xrdb -merge ~/.Xresources.

The previous README from MihailJP/Inconsolata-LGC is here:

Inconsolata LGC

Inconsolata is one of the most suitable font for programmers created by Raph
Levien. Since the original Inconsolata does not contain Cyrillic alphabet,
it was slightly inconvenient for not a few programmers from Russia.

Inconsolata LGC is a modified version of Inconsolata with added the Cyrillic
alphabet which directly descends from Inconsolata Hellenic supporting modern

Inconsolata LGC is licensed under SIL OFL.

Inconsolata LGC changes:
* Cyrillic glyphs added.
* Italic and Bold font added.

Changes inherited from Inconsolata Hellenic:
* Greek glyphs.

Changes inherited from Inconsolata-dz:
* Straight quotation marks.
