    Default Can't get FontSwap to work...

    setuid
    /bin/chmod +s /Applications/FontSwap.app/FontSwap

    only from winscp without going through terminal. Hope this helps.
    I tried changing the folder and app permissions to 4777. Do I need to change all the files to that?

    edit- changed all the files in the folder to 4777. Still won't work. Any idea?

    it doesn't work that way... basically everything changes with OS 2.0, I can't think of any app that instantly worked on 2.0 there are so many syntax changes alone that its just not possible.

    Just discovered this back in Cydia. Downloaded and am using. So far, so good. Nice to have an easy way to change fonts for those of using PCs who can't convert the .plist files.

    FW v2.2 2G Phone here and loving it. My only suggestion is a preview option for the font you'd like before choosing it (if it hasn't been suggested already).

    I have a question. I have already changed the lockclock font, will this have any affect if I decide to change it, and then go back to default?

    That would be nice. I ended up going online to Download fonts from classic to cool - Linotype.com searched for and previewed the available swapfont choices, and then applied to the iphone. Using Myriad Pro.

    On a reboot, my phone was slow to respond, but finally kicked into gear.

    Previews would be nice. Being able to add more fonts would be nice, too.

    Otherwise, the app worked great as-is on my 3g 2.2.

    works great on my 2G 2.1. preview option would be a bonus, as would a way to enlarge fonts. the calibri font is lovely, but springboard icon labels are a wee bit small.

    You can change font colors with Winterboard.

    Included Calibri font does not contain valid Cyrillic characters. If you compare inluded font to the one in, let's say, MS Office, you can clearly see that. It actually looks like it was made of original Helvetica font by replacing original glyphs with those from Calibri and only Latin glyphs were replaced.

    Could you fix this thing, please?

    Just found out that no italic and italic bold version for Calibri and other alternative fonts included. This makes interface look inconsistent. Should be fixed.

    It's certainly a great start! I love having this option...just one more reason to JB!

    Hopefully new fonts can / will be added. I use WB to change the color, but it would nice to have that feature in this cool little app. I'd even donate $2 or so if was more complete with more fonts / colors / size, etc...
