Fonts? Fonts! (for sgi X11)


Apr 18, 2020
So far I've always stuck with the built-in fonts on my Irix boxes. There are some pretty "banging" fonts in there. Right my fellow kids?

Anyway, if I wanted to add more scalable or bitmapped fonts, that looks straight forward enough. What I'm really interested in is what, if anything, other folks like to use? It has been a long time since I've looked into fonts not intended for anti-aliasing on a 1080p screen or scaling on a 4K+ theme. Any old favorites or new finds?
