FULL UNICODE FONT SET

Getting mathematical fonts on Linux

There may be mathematical truetype fonts already on your system

or available through you packaging system.

I searched the internet for them.

http://www.mozilla.org/projects/mathml/fonts/

points to a STIX Fonts Project beta font download

http://www.mozilla.org/projects/mathml/fonts/stix/STIXBeta.zip

download and extract these fonts they are *.otf they can

be converted to *.ttf as described here:

http://www.stuermer.ch/blog/convert-otf-to-ttf-font-on-ubuntu.html

the ttf fonts can be installed in Linux and installed in the

fallback directory (which may need to be created)

jdk1.5.0_06jre/lib/fonts/fallback

I tried the raw *.otf and it did not work so the conversion

to ttf may well be necessary.

I copied to /usr/share/fonts/truetype

Then I did

xset fp rehash

and could use the fonts but they may have been already installed.

Testcase (supplied by customer):

create table test ( testcol VARCHAR2(10));

insert into test values (unistr('\D835\DCAB'));

then view the table in SQLDeveloper.

Please comment if you have any problem/improvements.
