Background

Luxi is a family of typefaces originally designed for the X Window System by Kris Holmes and Charles Bigelow from Bigelow and Holmes Inc. Luxi are similar to Lucida – their previous font design. Luxi fonts are commonly found on free software operating systems, such as Linux. They are the default fonts in Red Hat’s Bluecurve theme. Released under a licence which permits free distribution but not modification, the Luxi fonts are not free software. This led to their removal from Fedora as well as the Debian package of XFree86.
