[FIXED] Fallback font of SVG logo on noscript.net

Post by barbaz »

The text in the NoScript logo at https://noscript.net/img/noscript-logo-full.svg looks jarringly weird on my system, very different from the awesome PNG version of same logo. Some investigation shows that the SVG is trying to display the "No" and "cript" in "Jellee" font, but since I do not have that font installed, it falls back to "DejaVu Serif".

I'm using Xubuntu 22.04. Can't find "Jellee" font in the Ubuntu repositories, so I would wonder, are other people also seeing an unfortunate fallback font on that SVG?

Should the SVG specify a fallback font that's closer in style to "Jellee"? Even just "sans-serif" looks much better than the current fallback.

Thanks :)

I see it like this:
SeaMonkey — http://ipic.su/img/img7/fs/2022-11-20_2 ... 970466.png
Firefox — http://ipic.su/img/img7/fs/2022-11-20_2 ... 971158.png
UPD: Apparently it depends on font.default.x*

@Giorgio
You can remove the text information from "no" and "cript" if you don't want to change the kerning, etc.
(Inkscape, Path -> Object to path)
 
They also write that you can specify the path to the font file

While waiting for Giorgio to get to this, there are two possible workarounds to make the noscript.net NoScript logo look normal and awesome:

1) install https://www.fontsquirrel.com/fonts/jellee on your OS

or,

2) force the site to fallback to the PNG, by blocking the SVG logo e.g. with this uBlock Origin filter -

Code: Select all

||noscript.net/img/noscript-logo-full.svg$important
