Subject: Trouble with loadable fonts
From: Uwe Freese (mail_at_uwe-freese.de)
Date: 2002-08-27


Hello,

I tested around with loadable fonts, because I want to see the "german
umlauts" correctly (the size of the standard font is ok for me).

First question: Why aren't the german characters (umlauts )
displayed in the non-loadable-fonts version? They are available in
both ANSI and Ascii table. Is the standard font only Ascii 7 bit?

Then I compiled a version with loadable fonts and the 5x7.bdf (which
is ISO8859-1 and should contain the 'umlauts', shouldn't it?). But
after starting, rockbox tells me "No font specified" (I copied the
system.ajf to the AJB).

I downloaded 5x7 and 5x8 (both ISO8859-1) fonts from somewhere, but
bdf2ajf exits with a segfault. I think there are too many characters
in this bdf file. But adf2ajf should ignore the additional ones
instead of crashing, of course. (I don't know how to change the bdf
file manually so that it works with the current bdf2ajf.)

Has anybody a font for me that's equivalent to the font of the
fixed-font-version (only with 'german umlauts')?

Bye, Uwe.
