Update : Qt 4.7.2 has solved the font break in Qt apps. Now you can use whatever font you want . Get Qt 4.7.2 here : Qt 4.7.2 , Qt webkit , Qt mobility 1.1
Install all the three Qt binaries and you are all set to change fonts.
Proof that Qt apps dont break :
Lets get on with the tutorial then :
Here’s what you should do :
1. Make sure you have a memory card in your Symbian^3 device ,
you cannot change fonts using the Mass memory. ( Update : Mass memory works too ! )
2. Then get any True type font with .ttf as extension (if you want Nokia Pure, click here <— This file contains all the renamed fonts like the ones given below) .
3. Now navigate to the Resource folder in memory card’s Root ( for example if M: is memory card , navigate to M:/Resource , if its not there, create one)
4.Now create a Folder called Fonts in M:/Resource ( So the folder path should be M:/Resource/Fonts )
5.Now this is the most important step :
Make four copies of the font you have and rename the same font to the corresponding filenames. ( for example: if you have helvetica(01).ttf rename it to nosnr60.ttf , like wise rename others to respective filenames given below )
6. After you have renamed to the above filenames, Copy them to the Fonts folder In M:/Resource/Fonts.
Now reboot the phone and enjoy your new fonts 🙂
I have used the Helvetica Neue font and it looks like this :
Helvetica Neue Font
Hint : If you want the original fonts back, just erase the Fonts folder and reboot the phone.
