At the recommendation of David Beck, I have installed a TTF font from http://www.languagegeek.com/. It took a few minutes for me to figure out how to get it going, but it was pretty straightforward after that. Here are some quick instructions for those of you running Debian variants such as Ubuntu.
- Fetch the zip files from languagegeek.com and unpack:
$ sudo mkdir -m777 -p /usr/local/share/fonts/truetype/languagegeek/ $ cd /usr/local/share/fonts/truetype/languagegeek/ $ for zip in AboriginalSerif.zip AboriginalSans.zip do wget http://www.languagegeek.com/font/$zip && unzip $zip && rm $zip done $ sudo chmod -R 755 .
- Register these fonts with the system using defoma (the debian font manager):
$ for font in *.ttf do sudo defoma-font register truetype $PWD/$font done
While performing the defoma registration, I was presented with a number of warning-ish-looking messages for each file processed. For better or worse, I am ignoring them:
No CIDSupplement specified for Dotum-Bold, defaulting to 0. No CIDSupplement specified for Batang-Regular, defaulting to 0. No CIDSupplement specified for ZenHei-CNS, defaulting to 0. No CIDSupplement specified for Batang-Bold, defaulting to 0. No CIDSupplement specified for ZenHei, defaulting to 0. No CIDSupplement specified for Dotum-Regular, defaulting to 0.
I used gnome-appearance-properties (System â†’ Preferences â†’ Appearance) to set my document font to Aboriginal Sans:
After telling Chromium that it should use these fonts, it renders all of the Lushootseed characters quite nicely.
