Try restarting another time after the update. That fixed it for others having that problem. Try ;fc-cache first though, that might be enough.

Lightbulb "Regular" and "condensed" the same after install

Hello.
I have installed fonthack-1.3.2 and libfreetype-6.8.1 on a Kindle touch with firmware 5.1.2. Everything is ok I can change the fonts, but after instalation i saw that regular and condensed are the same. It seems fonthack change the stock fonts. Reset option of sans and consendsed gave me the same font.
So i like fonthack but if I want to reset to default fonts how I do it?
Are the defaults one available and it's possible to simply overwrite on Kindle?
Thanks

(Just jailbroke and installed everything, and I've got a few fonts working (I love Kievit!) and I can change the default S/SS/C/M - but I can't find the screen like in the screenshot above...)

@highwaykind, you have to use the USE_ALT_FONTS method to achieve that. you can search for the info in this forum.

Excellent, thanks! All working.

If the fonthack is working and you want the extra fonts on the screen:

1. Connect Kindle Touch to PC with USB cable.
2. create empty file with no extension called "USE_ALT_FONTS" (no quotes)
3. <deleted, kindle panics - not sure if because of font I'm using or something else..>

3. Put the fonts in the fonthack folder , explained in the fonthack README.
(Seems to be working although I can't see all the fonts listed, but I can se the default serif / sans serif / condensed and 4 of my own.. and a named system default one I think. Is there a way to get the screen to look like in the screenshot? Or does everyone with a KT have the lack of space issue?

Could probably be fixed a little by lessening the space between the lines of text so more fits in the "Fonts" box, but I have no idea how to do this..)

USE_ALT_FONTS method is a completely different from Font Hack and works just fine without Font Hack installed. While it makes no harm to use both of these methods simultaneously, your post assumed that they are interdependent. That's not true, don't be misguided and please don't misguide possible readers of your post.

if you use:
touch 5.3.2 -- /mnt/us/fonts -- USE_ALT_FONTS

then you can also block/reject the system-fonts

create a new txt-file (local.conf)

inside local.conf
Code:
<rejectfont>
	<pattern>
		<patelt name="family">
			<string>HeiseiMaruGoth_JIS0213_E</string>
		</patelt>
	</pattern>
	<pattern>
		<patelt name="family">
			<string>HangulGothicMTC-Medium_E</string>
		</patelt>
	</pattern>
	<pattern>
		<patelt name="family">
			<string>MHeiGB18030C-Medium_E</string>
		</patelt>
	</pattern>
	<pattern>                
		<patelt name="family">   
			<string>MHeiC-Medium-Big5HKSCS_E</string>  
		</patelt>                  
	</pattern>                 
	<pattern>                
		<patelt name="family">   
			<string>Futura</string>  
		</patelt>                  
	</pattern> 
</rejectfont>
put it on kindle to
/etc/fonts/local.conf

btw
i like the futura-font and dont reject it
