[manjaro] install new fonts

Problem
Under Manjaro I wanted to install new fonts. I needed a font pack; I didn’t want to bother with individual fonts.

Solution
At https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/fonts#TrueType I found some packages:

  • ttf-ms-fonts
  • ttf-google-fonts-git
  • ttf-bitstream-vera
  • ttf-vista-fonts
  • ttf-hack

The Google font kit contains hundreds of fonts.

Gimp
If you type a text in Gimp and you want to see the text with different fonts, i.e. you want to browse the fonts, here is how to do it.

Move the mouse above the font selector button (between “Font:” and “Sans” on the screenshot) and use the mouse wheel. That’s the trick.
