Introducing Lite Fonts - an easy way to complement your existing font set with the remainder of the stock MS fonts.

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install lite-fonts
If I have missed any stock MS fonts, please let me know, better still supply me with a link so I can download and add them.
We won't be adding any of your 'favorite' fonts, this is for stock MS fonts only commonly used in MS Office products, so please don't post saying "can you please add the Star Wars font to this set", or Webdings :)

This set also includes the Google Noto font set.

This package will be installed by default in LL 2.4

A couple people asked me exactly what fonts the lite-fonts package contains so I thought I'd share the information with the forum. Happy New Year to all!

Microsoft is going to shut  down Linux Lite if lite-fonts are embeded into an os.
I remembered why Ubuntu didn't add them. So I googled a bit and found several threads on this.
I'm just going to paste what I found because I don't like typing on the phone. :)
"msttcorefonts is considered globally legal for installation because the license for the fonts allow them to be installed and by omission, installed on non-Windows operating systems, without a Windows license.

In short: It's not a case of copyright law because Microsoft allows the redistribution of the font installers and it allows users to install the fonts (regardless of OS).

It does not allow for redistribution of the TTF font files on their own, so, for example, it would not allow for a distribution like Ubuntu to include them by default.

Sidebar: The newer (Vista-era) fonts like Consolas, Segoe, Cambria, Candara have explicit "only for Windows" junk in their licenses, but these fonts aren't included in msttcorefonts so that doesn't matter."

I'm fully cognisant of the situation with MS fonts, many OS's bundle things like flash and java, other proprietary software in their OS and noone bothers with them because the linux only has 1% of the Desktop market. You can imagine what infinitesimal fraction LL is of that 1% :)

Well, Adobe supported linux until recently and most distros use openjdk which is an open source java implementation.
I see what you mean. Microsoft is unlikely to take any actions if their stocks drop for 1.000.000 of a % the day lunux lite ships.
I don't trust them, they closed so many companies.
Lets hope the good old MS forgot all about Lindows. :)

Happy new year Jerry.

i think this is the most recent font topic,
but if you would like a new one started feel free to move this post

if you would like to add fonts to use in Lite:

i have a package of open source fonts from my windows daze,
and just uploaded them straight into usr/share/fonts in a new folder i made called 'newfonts'
opened libre office & inkscape, and they were all there and worked (ttf and otf files)

i mainly use font squirrel for fonts,
good selection and free for personal and commercial endeavors
