Install Microsoft’s Consolas Font on Mac OS X

With the introduction of Windows Vista and Office 2007 Microsoft included some new fonts, which became the defaults in Office. Their names all start with ‘C’ and they are quite attractive. In particular there is a monospaced font called Consolas that is nice to use as a text editor font and Terminal font. The problem is they aren’t technically free, although Microsoft does include them in a number of freely available updaters. What follows is how I went about installing the fonts on my Mac. Installation Download the Open XML File Format Converter for Mac. Double click the disk image if it wasn’t automatically mounted. You will see an Open XML File Format Converter meta package (.mpkg).

Building Vim from Source

Compiling Vim from the source is actually not that difficult. Here's what you should do: Install all the prerequisite libraries Remove vim if you have it already Compile source code Download source code You can get the source code here: Set Configuration Install Vim If you don't get gvim working (on ubuntu 12.04 LTS), try changing --enable-gui=gtk2 to --enable-gui=gnome2 These configure and make calls assume a Debian-like distro where Vim's runtime files directory is placed in /usr/share/vim/vim74/, which is not Vim's default. The same thing goes for --prefix=/usr in the configure call. Those values may need to be different with a Linux distro that is not based on Debian. In such a case, try to remove the --prefix variable in the configure call and the VIMRUNTIMEDIR in the make call (in other words, go with the defaults). Besides, if you…
