Available Fonts

This Oracle Solaris 11 release includes numerous updates to fonts available in the system and features a significant move towards using TrueType or OpenType font formats.

Many fonts come from open source projects and are updated regularly, such as the DejaVu fonts, which are based on the well known Vera fonts. DejaVu fonts are the system's default fonts in many locales, as they are designed for use with Unicode.

Fonts are added to the system automatically upon the modification of locale facets. For more information, see Locale Facets. Fonts packages belong to category System/Fonts. To find available fonts packages use the pkg search ':set:info.classification:System/Fonts' command.

Japanese fonts are packaged as follows:

  • IPAGothic, IPAPGothic, IPAMincho, IPAPMincho – system/font/truetype/ipafont

  • Sun-Gothic, Sun-Minchou – system/font/sun-ja-bitmap-unicode (Unicode indexed font) and system/font/sun-ja-bitmap (JIS indexed font)

Unicode indexed fonts are provided to use bitmap fonts in GTK applications. For example, to use bitmap fonts in a Japanese GNOME environment, install system/font/sun-ja-bitmap-unicode.

To use Japanese bitmap fonts from the CDE environment in the previous release, install system/font/sun-ja-bitmap.
