    416416      This set of fonts from Adobe (seven different weights) includes what is
    417417      now the preferred monospace font for those applications which use
    418       <xref linkend="gsettings-desktop-schemas"/>. Either download the full set of
    419       source, OTF, TTF, WOFF fonts from <ulink
    420       url="https://github.com/adobe-fonts/source-code-pro.git#release">Source Code
    421       Pro</ulink> or just the TTF fonts from <ulink
     418      <xref linkend="gsettings-desktop-schemas"/>. The github release <ulink
     419      url="https://github.com/adobe-fonts/source-code-pro.git#release">source-code-pro</ulink>
     420      contains OTF (preferred) and TTF as well as the source and WOFF fonts.
     421    </para>

     423    <para>
     424      To use this in terminals, you probably only want the Regular font.

     427    <para>
     428      There is also an older TTF version of this available from <ulink
    422429      url="https://fonts.google.com/specimen/Source+Code+Pro?selection.family=Source+Code+Pro">Google
    423       fonts</ulink>
     430      fonts</ulink> but that has very limited coverage (adequate for most
     431      European languages using a latin alphabet).
