    How To: Install Artwiz fonts in Ubuntu

    Filed under: Linux ::

    This is a guide for installing the artwiz fonts pack in Ubuntu Jaunty.

    Download an artwiz fonts pack from:

    Untar it by doing something like:

    tar xvzf artwiz-latin1-1.1.tgz
    sudo mv artwiz-latin1 /usr/share/fonts/X11/misc

    Then execute the following commands:

    sudo rm /etc/fonts/conf.d/70-no-bitmaps.conf
    sudo cp /etc/fonts/conf.avail/70-yes-bitmaps.conf /etc/fonts/conf.d
    sudo fc-cache -f -v
    sudo dpkg-reconfigure fontconfig
    sudo dpkg-reconfigure fontconfig-config

    If it prompts you (it may not), answer the next 3 prompts as the following:

    1. Native
    2. Automatic
    3. Yes

    Restart X and you will have Artwiz fonts.

      Yay, this one is helpful!
      I wonder why the last command doesn’t give me any of the 3 prompts, but it works anyway.

      At last, got these awesome fonts working.
