I've changed the title of this from Hide Fonts
to Font Config
. It now includes only one button: Hide Fonts
Purpose: To hide the extra fonts that appear on the Aa menu when USE_ALT_FONTS is present. Refer to:
When Hide Fonts
is executed, the following actions take place:
- The file USE_ALT_FONTS is created if non-existent, allowing custom fonts to be installed.
- The directory /mnt/us/fonts is created if non-existent.
- The file /mnt/us/fonts/hidefonts.conf is created and fonts based on the fontlist.txt file are added.
- The file /mnt/us/fonts/alternate.conf is created if non-existent, and is used for other user font configurations.
Once these files are created, the user is free to edit them at will; use a UNIX-friendly editor. The use of the Font Config KUAL button is no longer necessary to hide additional fonts. However, if you do intend to add or remove hidden fonts with KUAL, ensure other font configurations are added to alternate.conf
will be overwritten each time the KUAL button is used.
