Social Icons based on font… but intelligent


Today we talk about are and web, indeed ... talk about an easy way to use a font in our pages graph which correspond social icons (Facebook, Twitter, Flickr and so on), thus integrating the article about six months ago on the set of icons in the form of font.

The font of today has as particularity the fact of being simple to include, even more than the set of icons that I mentioned six months ago. It's called "Mono Social Icon Font", and a example live (worth a thousand words) we can see the project page.

In this guide I will explain a few small things that new users GNU/Linux. Those coming from the Microsoft world will be used to having to fiddling with fonts and characters various so completely irrational. The creators of Windows XP in esteem it had released a software simple to use, but in reality (as we shall see) is not always so. An example is the 'font installer. To install a font on XP you need to go to the folder "characters", cliccare su "File" - "Install New Font" and finally choose from a file manager that we want to install the downloaded font.

This procedure should be repeated all the times that we have to install a different font. If we had 100 fonts to be installed should repeat the procedure 100 times. So much for simplicity.
