Optimal Use of Fonts on Linux

By

5.2. Linux to Linux

The fonts available on modern Linux distributions, to produce good quality documents are the following:

Table 2. General Linux Free Fonts

   
   Fonts
   Bitstream Charter
    Bitstream Vera family
   Century Schoolbook
   Luxi family
   Nimbus family
   URW Palladio
   URW Bookman
   URW Chancery
   URW Gothic
   Utopia

Using these fonts you'll be able to safely exchange and print documents between different modern Linux distributions.

There are other fonts available on your Linux system, but we not listed them here because they are low-quality (obsolete) bitmap fonts, to be used on the screen, and not for documents.
