Installing fonts is quick and simple. Once fonts are installed, they are available to yours programs.
The font packages you download from the www.ffonts.net is in compressed .zip files to reduce file size and make downloading faster.
If you have downloaded a font that is saved in .zip format, you can "unzip" it by double-clicking the icon for the font and following the instructions on the screen.
INSTALLING MORE THAN 1000 FONTS ONTO YOUR COMPUTER CAN CAUSE A REDUCTION IN SPEED.
WE RECOMMEND THAT YOU LIMIT YOURSELF TO A NUMBER LESS THAN 1000 (400-500).
Installing new fonts
How to install a font under Windows? Download Font
Click on the "Download" button, save the font file on your hard disk.
Under Windows Vista : Select the font files (.ttf, .otf or .fon) then Right-click > Install
Under any version of Windows : Place the font files (.ttf, .otf or .fon) into the Fonts folder, usually C:\Windows\Fonts or C:\WINNT\Fonts
(can be reached as well by the Start Menu > Control Panel > Appearance and Themes > Fonts).
Tip : if you punctually need a font, you don't need to install it. Just double-click on the .ttf file, and while the preview window is opened you can use it in most of the programs you'll launch (apart from a few exceptions like OpenOffice).
How to install a font under Mac OS ? Download Font
Click on the "Download" button, save the font file on your hard disk.
Under Mac OS X 10.3 or above (including the FontBook) : Double-click the font file > "Install font" button at the bottom of the preview.
Under any version of Mac OS X : Put the files into /Library/Fonts (for all users) or into /Users/Your_username/Library/Fonts (for you only).
Under Mac OS 9 or earlier : Download the font files (.ttf or .otf),Then drag the fonts suitcases into the System folder. The system will propose you to add them to the Fonts folder.
How to install a font under Linux ? Download Font
Click on the "Download" button, save the font file on your hard disk.
Copy the font files (.ttf or .otf) to fonts:/// in the File manager.
Notes
* To select more than one font to add, in step 6, hold down the CTRL key, and then click each of the fonts you want to add.
* You can also drag OpenType, TrueType, Type 1, and raster fonts from another location to add them to the Fonts folder. This works only if the font is not already in the Fonts folder.
* To add fonts from a network drive without using disk space on your computer, clear the Copy fonts to Fonts folder check box in the Add Fonts dialog box. This is available only when you install OpenType, TrueType, or raster fonts using the Install New Font option on the File menu.

Copyright FAQ
=============
1. I don't understand the resale restriction... What gives?
Bitstream is giving away these fonts, but wishes to ensure its
competitors can't just drop the fonts as is into a font sale system
and sell them as is. It seems fair that if Bitstream can't make money
from the Bitstream Vera fonts, their competitors should not be able to
do so either. You can sell the fonts as part of any software package,
however.
2. I want to package these fonts separately for distribution and
sale as part of a larger software package or system. Can I do so?
Yes. A RPM or Debian package is a "larger software package" to begin
with, and you aren't selling them independently by themselves.
See 1. above.
3. Are derivative works allowed?
Yes!
4. Can I change or add to the font(s)?
Yes, but you must change the name(s) of the font(s).
5. Under what terms are derivative works allowed?
You must change the name(s) of the fonts. This is to ensure the
quality of the fonts, both to protect Bitstream and Gnome. We want to
ensure that if an application has opened a font specifically of these
names, it gets what it expects (though of course, using fontconfig,
substitutions could still could have occurred during font
opening). You must include the Bitstream copyright. Additional
copyrights can be added, as per copyright law. Happy Font Hacking!
6. If I have improvements for Bitstream Vera, is it possible they might get
adopted in future versions?
Yes. The contract between the Gnome Foundation and Bitstream has
provisions for working with Bitstream to ensure quality additions to
the Bitstream Vera font family. Please contact us if you have such
additions. Note, that in general, we will want such additions for the
entire family, not just a single font, and that you'll have to keep
both Gnome and Jim Lyles, Vera's designer, happy! To make sense to add
glyphs to the font, they must be stylistically in keeping with Vera's
design. Vera cannot become a "ransom note" font. Jim Lyles will be
providing a document describing the design elements used in Vera, as a
guide and aid for people interested in contributing to Vera.
7. I want to sell a software package that uses these fonts: Can I do so?
Sure. Bundle the fonts with your software and sell your software
with the fonts. That is the intent of the copyright.
8. If applications have built the names "Bitstream Vera" into them,
can I override this somehow to use fonts of my choosing?
This depends on exact details of the software. Most open source
systems and software (e.g., Gnome, KDE, etc.) are now converting to
use fontconfig (see www.fontconfig.org) to handle font configuration,
selection and substitution; it has provisions for overriding font
names and subsituting alternatives. An example is provided by the
supplied local.conf file, which chooses the family Bitstream Vera for
"sans", "serif" and "monospace". Other software (e.g., the XFree86
core server) has other mechanisms for font substitution.
Contained herin is the Bitstream Vera font family.
The Copyright information is found in the COPYRIGHT.TXT file (along
with being incoporated into the fonts themselves).
The releases notes are found in the file "RELEASENOTES.TXT".
We hope you enjoy Vera!

The Gnome Project
Bitstream Vera Fonts - April 16, 2003
=====================================
The version number of these fonts is 1.10 to distinguish them from the
beta test fonts.
Note that the Vera copyright is incorporated in the fonts themselves.
The License field in the fonts contains the copyright license as it
appears below. The TrueType copyright field is not large enough to
contain the full license, so the license is incorporated (as you might
think if you thought about it) into the license field, which
unfortunately can be obscure to find. (In pfaedit, see: Element->Font
Info->TTFNames->License).
Our apologies for it taking longer to complete the fonts than planned.
Beta testers requested a tighter line spacing (less leading) and Jim
Lyles redesigned Vera's accents to bring its line spacing to more
typical of other fonts. This took additional time and effort. Our
thanks to Jim for this effort above and beyond the call of duty.
There are four monospace and sans faces (normal, oblique, bold, bold
oblique) and two serif faces (normal and bold). Fontconfig/Xft2 (see
www.fontconfig.org) can artificially oblique the serif faces for you:
this loses hinting and distorts the faces slightly, but is visibly
different than normal and bold, and reasonably pleasing.
On systems with fontconfig 2.0 or 2.1 installed, making your sans,
serif and monospace fonts default to these fonts is very easy. Just
drop the file local.conf into your /etc/fonts directory. This will
make the Bitstream fonts your default fonts for all applications using
fontconfig (if sans, serif, or monospace names are used, as they often
are as default values in many desktops). The XML in local.conf may
need modification to enable subpixel decimation, if appropriate,
however, the commented out phrase does so for XFree86 4.3, in the case
that the server does not have sufficient information to identify the
use of a flat panel. Fontconfig 2.2 adds Vera to the list of font
families and will, by default use it as the default sans, serif and
monospace fonts.
During the testing of the final Vera fonts, we learned that screen
fonts in general are only typically hinted to work correctly at
integer pixel sizes. Vera is coded internally for integer sizes only.
We need to investigate further to see if there are commonly used fonts
that are hinted to be rounded but are not rounded to integer sizes due
to oversights in their coding.
Most fonts work best at 8 pixels and below if anti-aliased only, as
the amount of work required to hint well at smaller and smaller sizes
becomes astronomical. GASP tables are typically used to control
whether hinting is used or not, but Freetype/Xft does not currently
support GASP tables (which are present in Vera).
To mitigate this problem, both for Vera and other fonts, there will be
(very shortly) a new fontconfig 2.2 release that will, by default not
apply hints if the size is below 8 pixels. if you should have a font
that in fact has been hinted more agressively, you can use fontconfig
to note this exception. We believe this should improve many hinted
fonts in addition to Vera, though implemeting GASP support is likely
the right long term solution.
Font rendering in Gnome or KDE is the combination of algorithms in
Xft2 and Freetype, along with hinting in the fonts themselves. It is
vital to have sufficient information to disentangle problems that you
may observe.
Note that having your font rendering system set up correctly is vital
to proper judgement of problems of the fonts:
* Freetype may or may not be configured to in ways that may
implement execution of possibly patented (in some parts of the world)
TrueType hinting algorithms, particularly at small sizes. Best
results are obtained while using these algorithms.
* The freetype autohinter (used when the possibly patented
algorithms are not used) continues to improve with each release. If
you are using the autohinter, please ensure you are using an up to
date version of freetype before reporting problems.
* Please identify what version of freetype you are using in any
bug reports, and how your freetype is configured.
* Make sure you are not using the freetype version included in
XFree86 4.3, as it has bugs that significantly degrade most fonts,
including Vera. if you build XFree86 4.3 from source yourself, you may
have installed this broken version without intending it (as I
did). Vera was verified with the recently released Freetype 2.1.4. On
many systems, 'ldd" can be used to see which freetype shared library
is actually being used.
* Xft/X Render does not (yet) implement gamma correction. This
causes significant problems rendering white text on a black background
(causing partial pixels to be insufficiently shaded) if the gamma of
your monitor has not been compensated for, and minor problems with
black text on a while background. The program "xgamma" can be used to
set a gamma correction value in the X server's color pallette. Most
monitors have a gamma near 2.
* Note that the Vera family uses minimal delta hinting. Your
results on other systems when not used anti-aliased may not be
entirely satisfying. We are primarily interested in reports of
problems on open source systems implementing Xft2/fontconfig/freetype
(which implements antialiasing and hinting adjustements, and
sophisticated subpixel decimation on flatpanels). Also, the
algorithms used by Xft2 adjust the hints to integer widths and the
results are crisper on open source systems than on Windows or
MacIntosh.
* Your fontconfig may (probably does) predate the release of
fontconfig 2.2, and you may see artifacts not present when the font is
used at very small sizes with hinting enabled. "vc-list -V" can be
used to see what version you have installed.
We believe and hope that these fonts will resolve the problems
reported during beta test. The largest change is the reduction of
leading (interline spacing), which had annoyed a number of people, and
reduced Vera's utility for some applcations. The Vera monospace font
should also now make '0' and 'O' and '1' and 'l' more clearly
distinguishable.
The version of these fonts is version 1.10. Fontconfig should be
choosing the new version of the fonts if both the released fonts and
beta test fonts are installed (though please discard them: they have
names of form tt20[1-12]gn.ttf). Note that older versions of
fontconfig sometimes did not rebuild their cache correctly when new
fonts are installed: please upgrade to fontconfig 2.2. "fc-cache -f"
can be used to force rebuilding fontconfig's cache files.
If you note problems, please send them to fonts at gnome dot org, with
exactly which face and size and unicode point you observe the problem
at. The xfd utility from XFree86 CVS may be useful for this (e.g. "xfd
-fa sans"). A possibly more useful program to examine fonts at a
variety of sizes is the "waterfall" program found in Keith Packard's
CVS.
$ cvs -d :pserver:anoncvs@keithp.com:/local/src/CVS login
Logging in to :pserver:anoncvs@keithp.com:2401/local/src/CVS
CVS password: <hit return>
$ cvs -d :pserver:anoncvs@keithp.com:/local/src/CVS co waterfall
$ cd waterfall
$ xmkmf -a
$ make
# make install
# make install.man
Again, please make sure you are running an up-to-date freetype, and
that you are only examining integer sizes.
Reporting Problems
==================
Please send problem reports to fonts at gnome org, with the following
information:
1. Version of Freetype, Xft2 and fontconfig
2. Whether TT hinting is being used, or the autohinter
3. Application being used
4. Character/Unicode code point that has problems (if applicable)
5. Version of which operating system
6. Please include a screenshot, when possible.
Please check the fonts list archives before reporting problems to cut
down on duplication.
