N7 fonts
#1
As you know, I run N7 on my Linux Mint machine, using Wine.

A few days ago I had to re-install my OS onto a new hard drive. The OS was successfully installed and is up and running... However, there are still some minor setting up that needs to be done... One of those task includes the "look" of N7.

   

This is a screenshot of my newly installed N7. As you can see, the fonts that Wine, in its infinite wisdom has chosen, leaves the display as 'not good'...  Normally I would check config files for font type and location, but in my case, there are none to be found.

The reason for the ugly display is that N7 is requesting fonts and Linux is choosing the "closest" font that it has to match. In most cases this is enough... Unfortunately, Wine itself requires Window system fonts...

The solution, for those that come across the same issue, is to install the Microsoft core fonts...

Ubuntu/Mint users need to submit the following command from a "terminal"

sudo apt install ttf-mscorefonts-installer

Allow the fonts to be installed and accept the EULA

End result:

   

I hope this will be of help to someone.

Hey! I thought you were on vacation? Judging by your response, you must have returned, if not then you did not leave your laptop at home.... Moo ha ha....

As a side note: N6 did not have any display issues whatsoever.... Robust little beastie!

Today is my first day of vacation actually. Tomorrow I'm going to a place where internet does not exist - my dad's Smile I will bring my laptop though and do lots of n7 coding.
