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.
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)
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
How they look
