Try Oxygen Font, the new KDE font

Some time ago I told you that KDE will also have your own font call (like is logic) Oxygen, which we can already test.

A reader through a comment has passed me this link where we can download the typography to test it in different variants. We can download it in several ways through the terminal:

Using Git:

git clone git://

Using Git with HTTP:

git clone

Or Lowering the tarball:

wget -c

With any of the 3 methods, we will obtain 3 folders which we can put inside / usr / share / fonts o ~ / .fonts. And ready..

    At last a native source for KDE, always having to be invented with other sources. By the way, someone has already tried them, do they look good with antialiasing and 96dpi?

      I just tried it, it looks blurry like I said before ... I use antialiasing but I don't use forced 96dpi or any other.

      Is there something similar in arch to dpkg-reconfigure fontconfig-config? With that in debian it solves the forced to 96dpi.

    The truth is that I do not know, as if it did not hit KDE (I can not explain it better)

    Either I have vision problems or I see the regular font blurry ...

      Yup, it's opaque ... blurry 🙁

        Well, you do have them HAHAHAHA

    I don't know if it's my idea, but the kerning - is very irregular.

    Well now I'm testing them in Archlinux and I have to say that I like them and they don't look as blurry as in the image. I'm going to leave them on.

    I have already put them and phenomenal neither blurry nor nothing, sharp and they look great. Those who see them blurry should configure anti-aliasing.

      You would be so kind to leave us your anti-aliasing settings here 🙂
      In order to know what parameters to put.

      Greetings and thanks 😀

    For document editing it seems perfect. To keep it as the main source of the environment, windows, menus, etc. I am not convinced ... Droid Sans or Open Sans are more comfortable for me.

    1.    VaryHeavy said

      Is that for the environment I find them a little "squashed" for the width they have ...

    2.    KZKG ^ Gaara said

      This is not the «final» yet ... I think it lacks a lot of development to have 😀

    I stay with Droid Sans.
