Squeak 5.1 includes as TTCFont


17 January 2006


Bitstream has released a set of TrueType fonts with a very free license (which is embedded in the fonts themselves). This is version 1.10 talked about at http://www.gnome.org/fonts

This is nifty! So nifty I loaded TrueTypeTextStyle version 5 and found there were a couple issues with subfamily names, which I fixed. Then wrapped up in a sar file.

Which I have uploaded here, and also registered on SqueakMap so people can use it. Note, for 3.6/3.7 you should use the "Bitstream Vera Naked" package on SqueakMap.

Enjoy!
BitstreamVeraFonts.sar

The easy way to install these in Squeak3.6 is with the Package Loader.
Bring up the World Menu, choose "open..." -> "Package Loader". Pick the "Bitstream Vera Naked" package. (Don't pick the "Bitstream Vera Fonts" package – that's for older versions of Squeak.)

evaluate this to change all the fonts:

#(
   (setButtonFontTo:      BitstreamVeraSansMono     18)
   (setListFontTo:        BitstreamVeraSans         18)
   (setMenuFontTo:        BitstreamVeraSans         18)
   (setWindowTitleFontTo: BitstreamVeraSans         24)
   (setSystemFontTo:      BitstreamVeraSans         18)
) do:
      [:triplet |
         Preferences perform: triplet first with: (StrikeFont familyName: triplet second size: triplet third)].

Smalltalk at: #BalloonMorph ifPresent:
      [:thatClass | thatClass setBalloonFontTo: (StrikeFont familyName: #BitstreamVeraSans size: 18)].

For some reason, the above code causes the icons in the Tools flap to vanish -tb
