    34       The <application>noto-fonts</application> package is a set of fonts
    35       used by KF5.
     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).
    3639    </para>
     41    <para>
     42      Some of these fonts began life as the libre Source Sans Pro fonts from
     43      adobe.
     44    </para>
     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>

    76     (19 MB).  The installation procedures are similar to the instructions
    77     below.  Just copy the .ttf files in the tarball to a directory
    78     in the /usr/share/fonts/ hierarchy.</para></note>
     88    <note><para>Almost nobody will ever encounter text for which some of these

     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>
     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>
     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>
     145    <para>
     146      To install from the tarball, run the following commands as the
     147       <systemitem class="username">root</systemitem> user:

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