Description:

The Absolute Fonts Archive created a page that will let you download many fonts one at a time, or for a fee you can download them all as a zip file.

Upon careful inspection of their site I found a multitude of corrupted font files. After removing all the corrupted files I was left with 6,760 fonts. I have chosen to turn them into a tarball and offer them as a free download.
Last changelog:

10 years ago

Previously a perl script was available here for download, but as I am now hosting the fonts myself, it is no longer necessary.

If you are on a dial-up connection try using a program like kget to download them, in case there is a disconnect.

...and another small fix. line 43

"...ntdownload.cgi?server=216.40.241.209&di..."

I've removed the "amp;". Otherwise you will
get a lot of 404 messages into the ttf files ;)

BTW: A proxy can be added in line 8 as follows:
$ua->proxy(['http', 'ftp'], 'http://$proxy_ip:$proxy_port/');

Hello,

I am actually using this script to download all the 6800+ fonts.

After a light correction on line 17
just removed the lt html code after
$line =~ m/

it works pretty well ;)

Can't locate LWP/UserAgent.pm in @INC (@INC contains: /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.0/i486-linux /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.0 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.0/i486-linux /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.0 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl .) at ./getit.perl line 3.

You must be missing the perl-libwww-perl library.

Anyone else having trouble downloading the fonts with Konqueror? It keeps opening the ttf files instead of asking to save them. And Choosing Locations|Save As doesn't work either. I have to cut and paste the URL onto a wget cmd line. Any help?

When this kind of thing happens I just wait for the adress of the file to show up in konquerors adress bar, select it, and drag it to kget.

I don't have that problem with KDE 3.2, but maybe you could use their option to email it to yourself.

Great site. For KDE-3.2 users, just download the font, preview it in the font viewer, and just click install. You can install as a normal user or root. Extremely easy :) Thanks again for the site.

Indeed, it is very hard to find free to use and good quality TrueType fonts.

Also, the above site may help you as well it helped me to install on my GNU/Linux system great fonts :

http://www.clipserver.de

For instance, this site have Bitstream fonts and other very good fonts :

Swiss 721
Dutch 801
Zurich ...

You can :
- download all the fonts of this site
- rename all of them with TrueType renamer. It is a windows app wich work under Wine. It permits to give understandable names of the fonts. It is available here http://web.ticino.com/Sagittarius/
- make a big archive (around 17 Mo)

for I'm afraid I can not redistribute such an archive due to some licence restriction :)
