OK. > I still have some questions need your further help: > > * "To make that work you need a FreeType library that has both > activated PCF and gzip support."

No, this means that the configuration macros `FT_CONFIG_OPTION_USE_LZW' and `FT_CONFIG_OPTION_USE_ZLIB' (in file `ftoption.h') should be defined, and that the line FONT_MODULES += pcf in file `modules.cfg' is present. > * I tried to compile the demo as the README.

If you follow this to the letter, everything should work. Note that it's probably easiest if you compile FreeType (the library, not the demo programs) with make devel && make for compiling the demo programs instead of calling the configure script. > * Is this demo only on desktop? Well, inspecting glyphs usually needs something to look at, right? But no, not all demo programs need a GUI. > * This demo seems to be more complicated to me.

If you want something simpler, look at the FreeType tutorial examples. https://www.freetype.org/freetype2/docs/tutorial/step3.html Werner _______________________________________________ Freetype mailing list Freetype@nongnu.org https://lists.nongnu.org/mailman/listinfo/freetype
