Description:

In this screenshots you see my favorite font. Lucida Grande :)

I converted this very famous font from another OS to make it useable under Linux - KDE.

Don't know if someone else did it before because i couldn't find that font for Linux. There is another font called Lucida but it is in no way so clean and smooth as this one.

I have a workaround for the Euro bug. It seems to work :)

Puhhh after Pietz found this bug i was so disappointed that i wanted to fix this problem immediately. Btw thanks Pietz :)

Now i learned much about True type fonts and their Key mappings. I had to make a workaround to get it working
you will notice two things (sorry till now i can't do it better)

1. The Euro sign looks ugly and almost unreadable in small sizes all under 10 !

2. The Euro sign doesn't become bold when you choose Lucida Grande bold.

! Please test this font and report other bugs except this two already known !

Everyone who can't live without the Euro sign should upgrade or wait untill i fixed it in a better way.

Could you post your colorscheme too? I played with some osxish schemes but my scrollbar never look properly or I seem not to be able to chose the right blue either :-/

Thank you and ...nice font :-)

I apreciate every font that's been made available wich can be used in linux. What I find troubeling is the license wich may be needed to use these fonts....

Maybe people can find good gpl fonts wich can replace the M$ fonts????

I've always thought that the Lucida series was copyrighted by Sun Microsystems to use as part of Java applications. Sun, hence "Lux" hence "Lucid" hence "Lucida". By that, it should be freely redistributable under one of Sun's many licenses
