I downloaded a font that I like, how to i put it onto my ipod via ssh?
Make sure it's ported for iPhone/iPod touch
What u mean
------------------double post merged------------------I put it in fontswap, but it didnt work when i opened for swap.
You should have said your using fontswap....put ported fonts in private/var/mobile/library/fontswap
Also, I mean you can't just put any old font in fontswap and hope it works. :/
You need to port the font to iphone proportions, and rename it using appropriate sytem font names.
EDIT: My 1st post still works if you want to manually override system fonts via SSH, just make sure you back up the original.
Also, OT Kreplick I know you're new here so I'll just tell you. Don't double post. It's ugly. Do what I did and edit your posts.
I don't really understand this part. I have the font on my computer as a zip file I think.
Oh and thanks, I havent been on any forum in a long time.
Go here to learn about font porting. Once ported put the font where I said in my last post. I think for 3.0 you have to resize them to 2048 ppi. not 1000 (where are you vince) Also, if it is a free font you can just attach the zip to a post and ill do it for you. If it's commercial, pm me and i'll help you through it.
How would you expect me to know? I pulled my own Helvetica's off my iPod and they were 2048, but (if you remember or was that iKeablr) on 2.x mine were also 2048, even though they were supposed to be 1000.
I'm very angry with FontLab right now, it shouldn't crash constantly like it does.
Haha did you forget that you're the master Baggy?
hahahaha I know. I just wasn't sure about 3.0 yet. I haven't done any fonts since I upgraded. I shall try one now.
Please visit the Polaroid theme thread! I have been struggling over there.
