Noto Sans Mono font not usable after noto-fonts update



After the latest noto-fonts upgrade today

[2018-04-06] [ALPM] upgraded noto-fonts (20171025-2 -> 20180322-1)

I can no longer select Noto Sans Mono as my default KDE Fixed Width Font in System Settings -> Fonts, it doesn’t appear.

Cannot select it either in Konsole as my default profile font.

It is on the system …

$ pkgfile -l noto-fonts | grep Mono
extra/noto-fonts        /usr/share/fonts/noto/NotoSansMono-Black.ttf
extra/noto-fonts        /usr/share/fonts/noto/NotoSansMono-Bold.ttf
extra/noto-fonts        /usr/share/fonts/noto/NotoSansMono-Light.ttf
extra/noto-fonts        /usr/share/fonts/noto/NotoSansMono-Medium.ttf
extra/noto-fonts        /usr/share/fonts/noto/NotoSansMono-Regular.ttf
extra/noto-fonts        /usr/share/fonts/noto/NotoSansMono-Thin.ttf

KDE recognizes it within System Settings -> Fonts -> Font Management …

This has occurred on all my systems and I don’t know why … same for other KDE users?

Any idea why a font displays in Plasma Font Management but is omitted from system and app font selection dialog boxes?

Not a huge deal, changed to Droid Sans Mono, but it is bugging me why an installed font I like now cannot be used.


Does Noto Mono appear like this ?
I think it lost the Sans :sunglasses:
but since i use Hack as fixed width and in terminal, i didn’t noticed nor i can’t remember how was previously, so maybe i’m off topic here …


The only options I get are in the first capture image above.

I wonder if KDE is simply not picking Noto Sans Mono up as monospaced font, thus filtering it from the available options?

It is available in the Kate font settings dialog.


just noticed that too.
and now my konsole fonts are messed without doing any config changes… :thinking:


I got the exact same issue. :frowning:


it seems that Noto Mono as been removed or replaced by Noto Sans Mono familly.
why it does not get selectable I don’t know… :thinking:


Close, font spacing config issue upstream with noto-fonts, KDE correctly filtering it out, waiting for upstream patch.

How do you come to that conclusion? I don’t see any fixes yet.


You are right, Script-Monospace is a github issue label, I misread.
