Introduction to FreeType

FreeType (technically Freetype 2) is a high-quality and portable font engine that supports bitmapped and scalable font formats. FreeType provides a high-quality anti-aliasing renderer, an auto-hinting engine, and support for the following font formats: TrueType Type1, CID-Type 1, Multiple Masters Type 1 OpenType/CFF, pure CFF, and CEF Windows FNT/FON.

Dependencies

Non-Multilib

If you downloaded the additional documentation, unpack it into the source tree using the following command:

tar xf ../freetype-doc-2.4.12.tar.bz2 --strip-components=2 -C docs

This command enables the built-in TrueType bytecode interpreter which in turn enables hinting of TrueType glyphs. Enabling the interpreter results in much better rendering of TrueType fonts.

sed -i -r 's:.*(#.*BYTE.*) .*:\1:' include/freetype/config/ftoption.h

Configure and compile the package:

./configure --prefix=/usr &&
make

Install the package:

make install &&
install -v -m755 -d /usr/share/doc/freetype-2.4.12 &&
cp -v -R docs/* /usr/share/doc/freetype-2.4.12

Multilib

32Bit

This command enables the built-in TrueType bytecode interpreter which in turn enables hinting of TrueType glyphs. Enabling the interpreter results in much better rendering of TrueType fonts.

sed -i -r 's:.*(#.*BYTE.*) .*:\1:' include/freetype/config/ftoption.h

Configure and compile the package:

CC="gcc ${BUILD32}" ./configure --prefix=/usr &&
make

Install the package:

make install &&
mv -v /usr/bin/freetype-config{,-32}

N32

This command enables the built-in TrueType bytecode interpreter which in turn enables hinting of TrueType glyphs. Enabling the interpreter results in much better rendering of TrueType fonts.

sed -i -r 's:.*(#.*BYTE.*) .*:\1:' include/freetype/config/ftoption.h

Configure and compile the package:

CC="gcc ${BUILDN32}" ./configure --prefix=/usr --libdir=/usr/lib32 &&
make

Install the package:

make install &&
mv -v /usr/bin/freetype-config{,-n32}

64Bit

If you downloaded the additional documentation, unpack it into the source tree using the following command:

tar xf ../freetype-doc-2.4.12.tar.bz2 --strip-components=2 -C docs

This command enables the built-in TrueType bytecode interpreter which in turn enables hinting of TrueType glyphs. Enabling the interpreter results in much better rendering of TrueType fonts.

sed -i -r 's:.*(#.*BYTE.*) .*:\1:' include/freetype/config/ftoption.h

Configure and compile the package:

CC="gcc ${BUILD64}" ./configure --prefix=/usr --libdir=/usr/lib64 &&
make

Install the package:

make install &&
mv -v /usr/bin/freetype-config{,-64} &&
ln -sf multiarch_wrapper /usr/bin/freetype-config &&
install -v -m755 -d /usr/share/doc/freetype-2.4.12 &&
cp -v -R docs/* /usr/share/doc/freetype-2.4.12
