Release Notes

Source tarball for tuxtype-1.7.5, including 11 bundled fonts. If you have SDL_Pango available, this archive will work fine, but the fonts will take up 2 MB extra space. If you do not have SDL_Pango, you will definitely this version of this package. Build requires the *-dev versions of SDL, SDL_image, SDL_mixer, and either SDL_Pango (preferred) or SDL_ttf. librsvg2 is desired but not used much by the program yet. Build and install with "./configure; make; sudo make install". See "./configure --help" for additional info
