NogDog, as a side note, how do you make those thumbnails? Just curious for future reference.

Okay, my bad, it was entirely my fault, no Windows to blame . [I put the wrong (meaning: default) files in the zipfile. Meaning we weren't asking the Kindle software to use the custom fonts, so, of course it didn't work for anyone but me -_-"]

If you've installed the _FONTS_ hack from the first post before now (06/23/10 03:33 UTC), unpack the two files in the zip file attached here to the linkfonts/bin folder on your Kindle, overwriting the two existing files. And then restart your kindle, it should work a whole lot better after that ^^.

I fixed the zipfile in the first post.

Did not get the fonts. Just the default fonts even after installation and a repeat restart.
Something missing.


Update - Got the Fonts hack fix - Working like a charm. Great. Thanks a lot NiLuJe.

Thanks NiLuJe! Appreciated your effort. Now my Kindle 2i became a Kindle 2i+

As, people say, never ever say never again... I´m very happy with my new Georgia2 fonts.

The forum software did that automatically when I attached an image file (.png in this case).

Phew! *wipes brow*

Thanks for the initial 'impromptu' beta testers and their quick feedback, and sorry again, that was a very, very dumb mistake! I'm suddenly very glad to have left the default fonts with their default filenames there... It wouldn't have been pretty otherwise... >_<"

@NogDog: Yes, I fixed the full zipfile in the first post as well. And double-checked it. And then triple-checked it!

Would it be possible to provide the CModBold fonts? These are the ones I have been using from Tedsans site.

Thank you for providing the updates for the fonts and the screensavers. I finally went ahead and installed version 2.5 of the firmware tonight. I have been holding off until a font hack was available and it is working great. I have my custom screensavers and now I have a way to easily change fonts.
