I’m using a Truetype font to write text strings to .png files I’m creating on the fly with the PHP4 image functions.
Specifically, I’m using
- imagettfbbox to get the string length (to determine image width)
- imagettftext to write the string
I was only able to find one font (at least on yoda), Vera, which is prettyt fugly. I found it located at:
I was unable, via find, to match truetype or ttf anywhere else under yoda’s root.
Are there other, more attractive fonts, elsewhere on the box that I’m just not finding?
- can/should I install my own truetype fonts in my home directory? If so, how?
- should I be looking at something other than truetype?
