Thread: Old terminal font from Open Suse 13.2 in Leap 42.1

    Default Old terminal font from Open Suse 13.2 in Leap 42.1

    Fear all,

    I was used to the terminal font used in suse 13.2. I did a lot of experiments with the terminal of suse leap, but was not able to set up the font to look as it did in 13.2. It seems to be a simple thing to do, but I was not able to find the proper configuration.
    The closest I got is monospace, but it is not quite the same. What I really don't like is how this font look in kile and kate.

    Is this possible at all?

    13.2 (KDE4) did use "monospace" by default (as fixed-width font).
    But "monospace" is no particular font. It is an alias. What font really is used, depends on what fonts you actually have installed.

    Actually you can configure yourself to which font "monospace" should relate in YaST->System->Fonts.

    Is this possible at all?
    Yes, if you have the same font(s) installed...
    So you'd need to know what font was used on your system in 13.2.

    "fc-match monospace" will tell which one is used for monospace. On my 42.2 system here it's:
    Code:
    fc-match monospace
    SourceCodePro-Regular.otf: "Source Code Pro" "Regular"
    (but that was definitely different in 13.2...)

    Though changes in the underlying libraries and/or default settings may have an impact on the exact look too.

    This may make it easier to find the font you need (this is on 13.1):
    Code:
    henk@boven:~> fc-match monospace
    DejaVuSansMono.ttf: "DejaVu Sans Mono" "Book"
    henk@boven:~>

    Yes, I think "DejaVu Sans Mono" was indeed the default monospace font in 13.2 too, on a standard installation at least.
    (This has been changed later to "Source Code Pro", I'm not sure if in 42.1 already but definitely in 42.2... And KDE/KF5 uses "Oxygen Mono" or "Hack" as default, not "monospace" any more)

    That font is included in the package dejavu-fonts btw.

    Thank you all for the help.
    Indeed, monospace is just an alias. I managed to reproduce the old font style by choosing
    Code:
    "DejaVu Sans Mono" "Book"
    It is not as nice as in Ubuntu, but it works for me. At least this is what I was used to.
    In my case the monospace font was set to

    Code:
    fc-match monospace
    SourceCodePro-Medium.otf: "Source Code Pro" "Medium"
    Which caused all the trouble.

    On my 13.2 install I get
    Code:
    ----------------------------
    $:>fc-match monospace
    LiberationMono-Regular.ttf: "Liberation Mono" "Regular"

    Yes, as I wrote this depends on what fonts you actually have installed.
    And it is also configurable, in YaST->System->Fonts e.g. (that module is not available yet in 13.2 though, so you'd have to edit the font-config config files yourself)

    I'm pretty sure DejuVu Sans was used here when I was still on 13.2, it definitely wasn't Liberation Mono (though I do have that one installed as well)...
