On the issue of good looking fonts for Linux

This website used to be dedicated to the issue of fonts rendering in Linux. There are two main problems which are being overlooked by some Linux distros: firstly, distros don't provide a good fonts configuration, thus even if you have fine crisp fonts obtained somewhere they will still look ugly and blurry. Secondly, by default many Linux distros don't provide good enough fonts or fonts which are compatible with Windows' ones. This of course leads to multiple problems: web pages look different, documents from Windows PC's quite often have a broken formatting. There's another problem to solve. Even though people know that Windows fonts can be copied to their Linux boxes, Windows 10/11 fonts are not supported by Freetype's hinting technology. It's a big issue begging to be resolved, but in the meantime people want free good fonts which just look good.

This website solves all these problems for you. Just download the free fonts listed on the top of the page and install .fonts.conf into your home directory, e.g. into /home/user

This .fonts.conf file is compatible with Mint, Ubuntu, Mageia, Debian, Fedora, RHEL, CentOS, OpenSuse, Arch Linux.

It has a correctly tuned autohinting (hinting) and provides the best results only if your freetype is compiled with BCI (Byte Code Interpreter). Mind that it's optimized for RGB monitors, so if you have a different subpixels orientation you should edit it accordingly. So if you want free crisp truetype (TTF) fonts which look best on your TFT LCD monitor, which have the same or similar appearance to the ClearType technology implemented by Microsoft, then you have come to the right page. The set of free fonts provided here contains 100% Windows compatible fonts (aka corefonts).

Windows 10/11 fonts for Linux

If you are interested in Windows 10/11 fonts for Linux you won't find them here for one very sad reason: freetype still cannot properly render them (yes, more than a decade after the introduction of ClearType v2).
