Install Custom fonts on Chrome CR-48

If you want to install custom fonts on your CR48 here are some steps to follow:


In Dev mode, drop into a shell and remove rootfs verification so we can copy files to wherever and then reboot

sudo /usr/share/vboot/bin/make_dev_ssd.ssh --remove_rootfs_verification
sudo reboot

Now go back into shell, copy fonts over and reboot again

cd /home/chronos/user/Downloads
sudo cp *.ttf /usr/share/fonts/croscore/
sudo reboot


Now you can go into Settings ->Under the Hood->Customize Fonts and you should see your font.

if your font is in a zip file, download and install unzip from http://www.duh.org/chromiumos/pkgs/
after following the steps to remove rootfs verification, you can install unzip using the following command:

sudo tar --wildcards -C / -xvjf /home/chronos/user/Downloads/unzip-6.0-r1.tbz2 './usr/local/*'

then you should be able to unzip your downloaded font using:

unzip [name_of_your_zip_file].zip

I realized i liked the new Ubuntu font much more than the new Chrome Tinos font and this spurred my interest in it!
