Hi,

I never ran FreeBSD as a desktop system but would like to try phantomjs. It works but many websites look quite strange as if standard fonts were missing.

Which ones do I have to install to have a similar feeling as with common systems like some Windows or OSX?

Thanks for hints.

You can copy fonts directly from Windows or OSX if You like, just create an ~/.fonts directory and copy appreciate *.TTF files there, like that:

Code:
% [color="Blue"][B]ls ~/.fonts[/B][/color]
