Changing system font

I'm a Vietnamese user that the current fonts don't support.
I know how to add the support-Vietnamese font to when reading books.
But their book titles still don''t show correctly because of the system font.

Do you guy have any idea?

If I've understand...
I made a patch (`Font-family and font-size bulk change`) in two parts (one for nickel and the second one for libnickel). Perhaps, you can test it (If you are brave).
You must read carefully and put (into REPLACE) the font-family name that you want.
If you have any... don't hesitate.

Good luck.

As I understand, I need a patch to update the new fonts.
I see that in your nickel part that has Bookerly font that supports Vietnamese characters.
But I have no idea how to create a KoboRoot.tgz from the nickel-363.yaml

You can make copy/paste into your existing files. Or, better, create a new ones (with another name ) and add the correspondent lines into kobopatch.yaml. You can see an example here.
If you need more... don't hesitate.

Good luck.

EDIT: If you don't want to change font-size you can erase those lines.

Thank guys.
I can change the setting font with your patch `Font-family and font-size bulk change`. Although there are still some parts using the old font, but it's better than the original firmware.

And 1 last question, do you any discuss topic about hack/mod Kobo devices (especial Kobo Forma)?

If you can, put images with the faults.

Wrong collection name


I replaced the En-Vie dictionary to En-Ge dictionary. So when I choose English to Germany, it'll show English to Vietnamese.
Wrong text in dictionary


Could you fix those?

To fix the first one you must change the Avenir font for your sans installed font with Vietnamese support one (In the example Gill Sans with Noto Sans).
For the second one, are you using any dictionary patch?

Good luck.

Edit:
Adding new interface languages
Adding new dictionaries to kobo

If you want to change the font used in your dictionary pop-up you can use my patch called 'Dictionary text font-family/font-size/line-height - beta'. It is included in the kobopatch standard pack for 4.12.12111. Don't be put off by the word 'beta' in the name - it has been around for quite a long time

It can be found in the patch file libnickel.so.1.0.0.yaml. You will need to customise it to use your chosen Vietnamese font in the section 'Examples for customising font-family:'
