Your package looks good.

The only difference I see initially, just by looking at the directory structure is in both my installs (10.10 and 10.6) I have a modules-Q16 directory under /lib/ImageMagick-6

Hm. I have no such folder anywhere.

From my 10.10 - ImageMagick v6.9.0-3

You have no fontconfig function? Is it influence?

I'll run more tests during the day when I get time.

 

Great :D

I found disabling anti aliasing useful when using thin fonts or they won't be readable when used in Clover.

Yes, I should make fonts without AA.

 

 
 

I look at updating the script to look for both font file and in system if file not exist.

 

Two more problems. Font name may contain spaces. What to enter? "Gill Sans"?

Some fonts are not ttf. There are ttc, odf and others. Are they works?

Hm. I have no such folder anywhere.

If I rename /usr/local/Cellar/imagemagick/<version>/lib/ImageMagick/modules-Q16/coders then convert no longer runs and my script fails so modules/coders are necessary with my build.

It doesn't seem to be needed here, but I don't really know much about imagemagick other than what I've needed to find for this script.

Well, passing font path with space in name works fine when escaping the space.

 

./createfont.sh -s24 -t2 -f/Users/blackosx/Library/Fonts/Bank\ Gothic

 

Some fonts are not ttf. There are ttc, odf and others. Are they works?  

I've successfully used truetype, opentype and postscript type 1 fonts. But there are thousands of fonts out there so if somebody has a font that won't work then there's sure to be something similar out there that will work.

Hi Slice

 

I remember trying out a package from cactus labs last year without much success which is another reason why I switched to installing ImageMagick using Homebrew. But I thought I'd try again on a 10.9 install to see how I get on.

 

I’ve just tried the first package from that page which installs easily.

$ convert -versionVersion: ImageMagick 6.9.1-0 Q16 x86_64 2015-03-22 http://www.imagemagick.orgCopyright: Copyright (C) 1999-2015 ImageMagick Studio LLCLicense: http://www.imagemagick.org/script/license.phpFeatures: DPC OpenCLDelegates (built-in): bzlib fftw jng jpeg lcms lzma png tiff webp xml zlib 
However, like it says on the webpage, the package is missing the freetype delegate library

$ ./createFont.sh -t2 -s24 -f/Volumes/Store/Work/Fonts/L/Lithos\ ƒ/LithoBla Canvas=0x32 | Char cell=0x2Building ImageMagick code sequenceRunning ImageMagick to create imageconvert: delegate library support not built-in `/Volumes/Store/Work/Fonts/L/Lithos ƒ/LithoBla' (Freetype) @ warning/annotate.c/RenderFreetype/1560.
It then goes on to say the second installer requires XQuartz which is at 68MB dmg of the X11 windowing system which I do not intend to install just to get fontconfig and freetype.

 

EDIT:

This will be a useful read

I see there is no easy way to get ImageMagick for users.

They can download my version and then report if a library missing. I will upload all dependencies.

I successfully installed the ImageMagick on other computer this way.

Updated to v0.82

- Fixed duplicate red pixels when applying padding to type 1 fonts for Chameleon.
- the -f option now accepts the name of an installed font (providing ImageMagick has it listed in it’s type.xml file), as well as a file path.
- Added -i option to list all installed fonts that ImageMagick knows about (reads the type.xml file).
- Added some progress dots to show the script is doing something.

Hi Chief Tester :D
 
From what you show of your font list, I only see ‘Trebuchet-MS’
I see you are passing this
./createFont.sh -t2 -s22 -f/Trebuchet\ MS.ttf
You need to be passing the -f option the exact name as shown in the list:
./createFont.sh -t2 -s22 -fTrebuchet-MS
Can you try that?

PS

:D

 

Yeah - ImageMagick is powerful and can do amazing things.
I've only scratched the surface with it....

Yes. Larger fonts don't wok very well which is a shame.

Can you change Clover to print more characters if the GUI resolution is wide enough to show them?

For example, the options page list. Can the text area be expandable to fit the text at font size? and the scroll bar be floated to the right?

@bb1045 - I'd forgotten about that one - thanks for the reminder:)

I'll fix it for the next update, which incidentally already includes extra horizontal spacing.

Cool. It will be a good thing to do, but there's no rush.

A script could help, but as it would only need doing once then surely theme conversion should be done by hand. Besides, some Chameleon themes won't work with Clover due to the icons being different shapes. I can't remember seeing many users request Chameleon themes in Clover. Which ones did you have in mind?

Updated to v0.83

- Fix newline after printing feedback/progress dots.
- Increase character spacing by 2 pixels for type 2 (Clover) fonts to accommodate Πchar.
- Clean up code a little bit.
- Include complete char set when determining text height for type 2 fonts.

Ah, that's great! Looking forward to it.

Please try it now.

 

EDIT: Hang on.. It's not right. I'll change it.

Rather than having no script here I've re-attached v0.82 to the opening post for now.

I'm going to make some fundamental changes to the way type 2 fonts are created as I'm not happy with the existing script.

Update. 

 

I now have v0.85 of the script working as I want it, but I need to clean and tidy the script before posting; Maybe later tonight.
 
Previous versions of the script worked great with some fonts, but not all. On some occasions, the glyphs would ‘bleed’ in to other cells resulting in parts of other characters appearing where they shouldn’t.
 
Here are some images showing comparisons of results v0.82 vs 0.85.

Updated to v0.85

 
- Reworked creating Clover (type 2) fonts to correctly separate each character in to it’s own grid cell.
 
The result means final font files are slightly larger in pixel size than files made with previous versions of the script, or even by hand. For example, here’s an image showing the WoB_PTMono_10W_NA.png font grid I made by hand back in 2012 vs a font grid of the same font made with this version of the script.
 
post-331032-0-08797400-1433973985_thumb.jpg
 
It needs to be noted that this extra spacing has a direct impact when used on Clover:
(old on the left / new on the right)
 
post-331032-0-25196800-1433973995_thumb.jpg
 
You could use the script's -l option to reduce the leading/line spacing using a negative value (the script now accepts values +/- 16), but this will (for a high proportion of fonts) only be useful on fonts without extended ASCII and cyrillic characters as those characters tend to be the ones extending to the upper and lower bounds of the cells, though some script fonts may have also have this for alpha numeric chars.
 
Please let me know of any issues.

Hi Slice

 

Yeah... I found this too.

 

You can try passing a negative value to the -l option to close the line spacing but if the font includes extended ascii or cyrillic chars then the tops/bottoms of those characters may appear in the adjacent cells.

 

EDIT: 

Here's a screenshot showing what I mean.

Baskerville 24pt. With line spacing reduced by -4 and without adjusting line spacing.

You can see one of the extended ascii chararcters is too tall and ends up in the 'z' cell.

post-331032-0-06271300-1434628359_thumb.jpg

 

Maybe I could add an option to the script to only produce ascii chars 32-126?

This way, there will not be any extended ascii chars to move in to the characters mostly used?

      Run Vanilla OS X El Capitan, Sierra, High Sierra or Mojave in VirtualBox 5.x.x on a Windows Host
      Following on from my previous guide on how to create a VMware virtual machine running Vanilla OS X El Capitan in Windows, I’ve decided to write a similar guide for creating a VirtualBox El Capitan VM. 
       
      The virtual machine should be useful for testing El Capitan and also for creating installers for use on a real machine/hackintosh.
       
      There are other tutorials and videos on the net about running OS X on Windows machines using pre-made VMDK disk images but you can never guarantee what else is in there….
       
      I’ve gathered info for this guide from several threads in the Multibooting and Virtualisation section of this forum and also the wider internet eg

      VirtualBox Forum: Status of OSX on OSX
       
      Requirements
         Intel PC with four or more CPU cores running Windows 7 X64 or later OS (2 or more cores needed for OS X)    4GB or more RAM (2GB or more will be needed for OS X)    Hard Disk with at least 40GB free for Virtual Machine    Oracle VM VirtualBox v 5.0.34    Install OS X El Capitan app and Mac or Hack to prepare installation iso <-- Now, no longer necessary to have previous access to a Mac or Hack by building the Installer.app from scratch - see post#75    16GB or larger exFAT formatted USB stick to transfer El Capitan iso from Mac/Hack to Host PC  
      Prepare Installation ISO on your Mac or Hack
      1.  On your Mac or Hack, download "Install OS X El Capitan.app" from the App Store into your Applications folder.
      2.  Download and unzip the CECI.tool (attached to this post) into your ~/Downloads folder. The commands in this executable script are shown below for informational purposes.  Note: you will need approx 16GB of free space on your hard disk for the script to complete.
       
       
       
      3.  Open OS X terminal, then run the following commands to execute the script:
      cd downloads chmod +x CECI.tool ./CECI.tool 4.  At the end of the process, you will have an El Capitan iso on your desktop - copy this onto an exFAT formatted USB for use on the PC Host later.
       
       
      Create an El Capitan Virtual Machine in VirtualBox
      1.  Open the VirtualBox program and click the "New" button to create a new VM.
       

       
      2.  Select Mac OS X and Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan (64 -bit) for Operating System type and version.  I named my Virtual Machine "El_Capitan", then clicked next...
       

       
      3.  Leave the Memory size at the recommended 2048 MB, then click next.
       

       
      4.  Choose to "Create a virtual hard disk now", then click the create button.
       

       
      5.  For the hard disk file type, the default is VDI (VirtualBox Disk Image) but I have selected VMDK for inter-operability with VMWare.  Click next...
       

       
      6.  For Storage on physical hard disk, I have chosen the default Dynamically allocated (grows larger to a set limit as you need more disk space).
       

       
      7.  On the File location and size screen, you can set the location of the new virtual hard disk and its size - I recommend changing disk size to 40GB or larger.  When you click the create button, you will now see your new VM in the VirtualBox main GUI.
       

       
      8.  Click the settings button on the Main Menu to tweak a few settings....
         a.  On the System/Motherboard tab in Boot Order, you can uncheck the Floppy Drive (who has these now?)
       

       
         b.  On the System/Processor tab, you can increase the allocated CPU cores to 2
       

       
         c.  On the Display tab, you can increase the allocated Video Memory to 128MB
       

       
         d.  On the Storage tab, click on the icon of the Optical Drive and select "Choose Virtual Optical Disk File". 
       

       
      Navigate and select the El Capitan ISO we created earlier...
       

       
         e.  Click the OK button to finalise the VM settings.
       
       
      Patch El Capitan vbox configuration file with DMI Settings from a Mac
      1.  From the start menu, type cmd and click run as administrator to open an administrative command prompt. 
       

       
      2.  Choose a Mac Model similar to your host system, then type the following lines, followed by <enter>  after each line.  Make sure you first close all VirtualBox Windows and the VirtualBox program, otherwise any changes you make won't stick...
       
      Eg iMac11,3
      cd "C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox\" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiSystemProduct" "iMac11,3" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiSystemVersion" "1.0" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiBoardProduct" "Mac-F2238BAE" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/smc/0/Config/DeviceKey" "ourhardworkbythesewordsguardedpleasedontsteal(c)AppleComputerInc" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/smc/0/Config/GetKeyFromRealSMC" 1 MacBookPro11,3

      To spoof Lynnfield i5 750 CPU
      VBoxManage.exe modifyvm "El_Capitan" --cpuidset 00000001 000106e5 06100800 0098e3fd bfebfbff To spoof IvyBridge CPU
      VBoxManage.exe modifyvm "El_Capitan" --cpuidset 00000001 000306a9 04100800 7fbae3ff bfebfbff or
      VBoxManage.exe modifyvm "El_Capitan" --cpuidset 00000001 000306a9 00020800 80000201 178bfbff 4.  Close the command prompt window.
       
       
      Installation of El Capitan
      We are now ready to start the El_Capitan Virtual Machine....
       



       
      Installation should be relatively straight forward, just following the prompts of the OS X installer:
      1.  Select language, agree to legal terms
       

       
      2.  Use Disk Utility from the Utilities Menu to erase and format the virtual hard drive as a single partition GUID Mac OS X Extended.  I named my drive "Macintosh HD" but you can enter whatever you like eg El_Capitan.
       

       
      3.  Quit DU and choose Macintosh HD to install El Capitan on.
      4.  After 20-30 min (depending on how fast your system is), the installation will complete.  At this point, unmount the El Capitan ISO by clicking the Devices menu from the VM window, click Optical Drives, then choose Remove disk from virtual drive.  The VM is now ready to reboot into OS X from the virtual hard drive.
      5.  At the welcome screen, choose your country and keyboard layout.  You can skip transfer information, location services and logging in with your Apple ID if you wish…
      6.  Create a User Account and select your Time Zone.  You can skip sending diagnostics and usage data to Apple….
      7.  Finally, you will arrive at the El Capitan Desktop.
       

       
      8.  Network/internet and audio should work OOB but on my system, the sounds were distorted.  Unfortunately, there is no QE/CI and the VM resolution will be fixed without the ability to dynamically resize the VM window (no VirtualBox additions for OS X guests atm). 
       
       
      Customization with VBoxManage
      1.  You can change the default resolution of 1024*768 (after shutting down the VM) with the VBoxManage command from the Windows Administrative Command Prompt:
      cd "C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox\" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" VBoxInternal2/EfiGopMode N (Where N can be one of 0,1,2,3,4,5) referring to the 640x480, 800x600, 1024x768, 1280x1024, 1440x900, 1920x1200 screen resolution respectively.
       
      Update:  For VirtualBox 5.2.x, the command for changing screen resolution has changed...
       
      VBoxManage setextradata "<MyVM>" VBoxInternal2/EfiGraphicsResolution XxY (where X=Horizontal screen resolution, Y=Vertical screen resolution)
      eg
      VBoxManage setextradata "<MyVM>" VBoxInternal2/EfiGraphicsResolution 1280x1024 2.  Adding serials and other SMBIOS details for the System Information Screen
      VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiSystemSerial" "W8#######B6" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiBoardSerial" "W8#########1A" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiSystemVendor" "Apple Inc." VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiSystemFamily" "iMac" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiBIOSVersion" "IM112.0057.03B" A listing of known issues with Mac OS X guests can be found in the VirtualBox Manual - link https://www.virtualbox.org/manual/ch14.html.
       
      Vanilla Mavericks and Yosemite, Snow Leopard from Retail DVD
      The same VM settings for El Capitan will also boot and run vanilla installations of OS X Mavericks and Yosemite .  Attached to this post are installer scripts to create bootable Mavericks (CMI.tool) and Yosemite (CYI.tool) ISOs for VirtualBox and VMware.
       
      With the respective OS X installer apps in the Applications folder, download and run the installer tools using terminal ie
       
      To create a Mavericks ISO on your desktop
      cd downloads chmod +x CMI.tool ./CMI.tool To create a Yosemite ISO on your desktop
      cd downloads chmod +x CYI.tool ./CYI.tool Here is a screenshot of the VM running Mavericks 10.9.5...
       

       
      Finally, those without a Mac/Hack to prepare the install media can purchase a retail Snow Leopard DVD directly from Apple and install OSX 10.6.3 on their virtual machines (Snow Leopard, Lion and Mountain Lion run quite happily in VirtualBox with 1 CPU, 1-2 GB of RAM and the rest of the settings unchanged from above).  Once you update by combo update to SL 10.6.8, you can directly download El Capitan from the App Store for free .
       

       
      UPDATE macOS Sierra 10.12 to 10.12.6: For macOS Sierra, use CSI.tool in post#51.
      UPDATE macOS High Sierra 17A365:  For macOS High Sierra, use CHSI.tool in post#73.
      UPDATE macOS Mojave 18A391:  For macOS Mojave or High Sierra, use macOS_iso_creator.tool on page 4 of thread.
      UPDATE macOS Catalina Beta DP3_19A501i:  For Catalina, @jpz4085 has made an automated batch file to create a Catalina VM in Windows with iMac 14,2 SMBIOS.  You can still use my macOS_iso_creator.tool on page 5 to make an installer ISO to attach to the VM.
       
       
       
      Good luck and enjoy

      Hello,
       
      I have installed OSx86 10.11 (El Capitan) on April 2016 on my Asus Z170 Deluxe system.
       
      For installation I used this Thread.
       
      I used it a lot and it worked well. Meanwhile I switched to Linux and I use Win10 time to time. So OSX was forgotten. Also it did not boot correctly anymore.
       
      Now I wanted to start with a fresh installation and use OSX more often again. I want to use OSX 10.13 High Sierra. Is it working on my Asus Z170 Deluxe? I have the same Hardware as of April 2016 only the graphics card was updated to a Nvidia GTX1080.
       
      My Hardware in detail: Asus Z-170-Deluxe (Bios 3801), i7-6700k, EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 SC GAMING ACX 3.0, Samsung 950 Pro/M2 NVME 512MB, HDD 4 TB)
      Can I use some of support files from the old thread for the installation (see attachment)? Can I still use  Clover 2.3k r3292 Special Edition v2 ? Or do I need a newer version?
       
      Has someone installed High Sierra successfully on the Asus Z170 Deluxe ?
       
      About some hints where to start I would be thankful.
       
      regards
