Install better fonts than the default:
# cd /usr/ports/x11-fonts/liberation-fonts-ttf # make install clean # cd /usr/ports/x11-fonts/webfonts # make install clean # cd /usr/ports/x11-fonts/terminus-font # make install clean
Options for terminus-font:
- Check DV1
- Check GQ2
- Check IJ1
- Check TD1
Lock the terminus font because we do not want pkg to reinstall it with the default options on the next update:
# pkg lock terminus-font
Edit Section "Files" of xorg.conf:
FontPath "/usr/local/share/fonts/local/" FontPath "/usr/local/share/fonts/Liberation/" FontPath "/usr/local/share/fonts/webfonts/" FontPath "/usr/local/share/fonts/terminus-font/"
This is done by creating /usr/local/etc/fonts/local.conf. Have a look at mine for example. It uses Liberation as system fonts and has the settings to make fonts look better.
The alternative to fonts/local.conf is fonts/conf.d directory. See README there for instructions.
