Name of Fonts

I find that we still remain the name of the chosen font. In config.ini, just set them to both base_font_name and base_cfont_name, and Stellarium does the rest of the work. And of course, different 2 font can be used in both base_font_name and base_cfont_name. --Dahlih 01:27, 13 July 2006 (PDT)

I think selection of font to be a serious issue of Stellarium. Now, program refers for font to two files and some parameters. These files are config.ini for Program Language and fontmap.dat for Sky Language. Parameters are base_*_name in config.ini and LANGUAGE for fontmap.dat. base_cfont_name seems parameter for fixed font. These behavior is not unified in program. I suggest that we arrange its behavior of font selector, and that we discuss how to implement its selector.--Sigma 02:32, 13 July 2006 (PDT)
This is probably because there is no developers in the group who actually needs to use CJK characters, so they mainly depend on bug reports to solve related problems. It would be good if we can find some testers or coders in to help the developers on this issue. -- Gsklee 03:54, 13 July 2006 (PDT)

Fonts Lincense

In Japanese font list, there is almost not font which is GNU GPL. For example, Epson fonts must have Epson Printer for use, IPA fonts must be included in source code of OpenPrinting for distribution. AoyanagiKouzan and Aqua fonts is more free license, but is not GNU GPL. I think that it is dangerous that these fonts are listed as GNU GPL.


In this way, this sentence "Below is a list of GNU General Public Licensed fonts which have ..." should be revised as "The following links list Asian fonts which have ..." --Dahlih 19:17, 10 July 2006 (UT+8)

Alright, I've removed Japanese and Korean fonts off the list and left 王漢宗's Chinese fonts only, which is certainly under GNU GPL. There are of course other fonts which suit with Stellarium very well, for instance 華康新篆體, but it is impossible for us to give a complete droplist here since they aren't free, so the best way is to try out every font you have in your computer one by one yourself and see which you like the most. -- Gsklee 07:07, 10 July 2006 (PDT)
In Japanese page, I wrote a concrete method for installing a font. Unfortunately, I didn't know Japanese font that licence is GPL. Therefore I illustrated with "Aqua Font" which is usually using. --Sigma 01:20, 11 July 2006 (PDT)
Since it's a free font this is of course totally acceptable. By the way thanks for the tips on how to solve the help window bug. -- Gsklee
