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

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

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

156 If you remove any of the fonts, remember to run 'fc-cache' (as root) to
157 update fontconfig.
