Subject: Re[2]: Trouble with loadable fonts
From: Alex Gitelman (
Date: 2002-08-27

In latest version of Rockbox loadable font support is screwed. The
reason (as usual) is that font routines are called before fonts is
initialized. I did quick fix (attached) which I am not quite satisfied
with at the moment but unfortunately I have lots of work so I just don't
have time to do better.
Second, in bdf2ajb there is hardcoded table used to transcode
Cyrillic to appropriate coding - it may need to be removed for German.
Unicode may work OK assuming that 0 page is for Western European
languages, but in general in unicode.c appropriate table should be
installed, too.

Best regards,
