33 <para>
34 The <application>noto-fonts</application> package ('No Tofu' i.e. avoiding
35 boxes with dots [ hex digits ] when a glyph cannot be found) is a set of
36 fonts which aim to cover <emphasis>every glyph in unicode, no matter how
37 obscure</emphasis>. These fonts, or at least the Sans Serif fonts, are
38 used by KF5 (initially only for gtk applications).
39 </para>
40
41 <para>
42 Some of these fonts began life as the libre Source Sans Pro fonts from
43 adobe.
44 </para>
45
46 <note><para>As well as the full set, there is a slightly smaller and
47 older set of fonts, with some extra fonts, at
48 <ulink url="&noto-alternate;">&noto-alternate;</ulink> (19 MB). The
49 installation procedures for those are listed separately. Unfortunately,
50 the tarball does not provide the CJK fonts.</para></note>

111 To install <application>Noto Fonts</application> from the full Noto-hinted
112 zip file, run the following commands as the
113 <systemitem class="username">root</systemitem> user:
114 </para>

122 Alternatively, to install a smaller set from the tarball, untar it
123 as normal. You will note that there are both
124 <filename class="directory">hinted/</filename> and
125 <filename class="directory">unhinted/</filename> directories, and
126 the documentation suggests that linux users should install the
127 hinted files.
128 </para>
129
130 <para>
131 In fact, there are many other fonts in the <filename
132 class="directory">unhinted</filename> directory, but all except one are
133 historic. The exception is the Noto Sans Symbols font - if Noto Sans is
134 your main font, you will probably want this because of the currency
135 symbols it provides.
136 </para>
137
138 <para>
139 In the <filename class="directory">hinted/</filename> directory there are
140 also some duplicate TTC (TrueType Collection) files for NotoSans which do
141 not provide anything useful and similarly some UI variants which were
142 again a dead end.
143 </para>
144
145 <para>
146 To install from the tarball, run the following commands as the
147 <systemitem class="username">root</systemitem> user:

154fc-cache</userinput></screen>
155
156 <para>
157 If you remove any of the fonts, remember to run 'fc-cache' (as root) to
158 update fontconfig.
