How do I use (vector) fonts?

Post by abelthorne » 05 Jul 2018, 12:24

Hello,
I've seen in the wiki that OpenMW can use TTF/OTF fonts but I don't understand how to install them. It's said to put them (with the XML file) in resources/mygui but where is that dir (I'm using Ubuntu with OpenMW 0.43 installed from the PPA)? There's no resources in the original Morrowind files, nor in ~/.config/openmw, nor in ~/.local/share/openmw. I've tried to create the dir in ~/.local/share/openmw, also to put it in ~/.local/share/openmw/data but nothing works, I don't seem to get better fonts in the game.

The resources folder is in the folder you've installed or built OpenMW to...

Oh, ok, so I would need to install them at system level. Not a big fan of this, especially as OpenMW is installed through packages and this could cause issues when upgrading/uninstalling. Isn't OpenMW supposed to use the resources dir in ~/.local/share/openmw (which is the local equivalent of /usr/share/games/openmw where it's installed) if it exists?

Yep, it will causes issues when upgrading. No, there is no local resources folder.
