# Was the font for TeX commands change? [closed]

In my opinion the font looks like Times and not like CM as before.

Commands like \sum for example are producing different kind of serifs.

Was the font change or I'm wrong?

Here is a sample. For me the font is not the default.

• Have you changed browser/OS/computer? Also what is your current setup? – Asaf Karagila Dec 23 '12 at 11:51
• If it looks like Times now then it must be because you are using STIX fonts. – Zhen Lin Dec 23 '12 at 13:04
• @AsafKaragila, I'm using Lubuntu 11.10 with Firefox. The only difference from yesterday to today was that I's testing some LuaLaTeX files, changing some default fonts with TeXLive and TeXStudio. Nothing related to my linux system. – Sigur Dec 23 '12 at 13:13
• I don't know how to restore the font. These Times fonts are so ugly. – Sigur Dec 23 '12 at 14:55
• Could you add a screenshot so we can compare if we are seeing the same as you? – Paŭlo Ebermann Dec 23 '12 at 16:26
• @PaŭloEbermann, edited with sample. – Sigur Dec 23 '12 at 16:32
• No, that really looks like something local to your computer. – Asaf Karagila Dec 23 '12 at 16:47
• Using my terminal history I found that I run fc-cache -sfv yesterday. – Sigur Dec 23 '12 at 16:50
• TeXLive now ships with STIX (and XITS) fonts. (Also, I find Computer Modern ugly. Tastes vary. :p) – Zhen Lin Dec 24 '12 at 5:40

I found the problem/solution.

Yesterday, trying to use otf fonts within TeXLive, I copied the file below to /etc/fonts/conf.d/09-texlive.conf and after I run sudo fc-cache.

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE fontconfig SYSTEM "fonts.dtd">
<fontconfig>
<dir>/usr/local/texlive/2011/texmf-dist/fonts/opentype</dir>
<dir>/usr/local/texlive/2011/texmf-dist/fonts/truetype</dir>
<dir>/usr/local/texlive/2011/texmf-dist/fonts/type1</dir>
</fontconfig>


Today, I moved that file and run that command again. Now everything is fine like before. Thanks.
