About

thaixfonts is a collection of Thai bitmap fonts available in free licenses. It aims to collect fonts for installation convenience, and maintain them as needed. This is because most fonts are aged, unmaintained, and now even unavailable in the original sources.

Installation

You can specify the target install directory with the --with-fontdir=DIR option. The default value is the usual location for misc fonts in X. Try ./configure --help to see the full list of available options.
