  Description     : Font family by KDE


From its README:

"The basic concept for Oxygen Font was to design a clear, legible, sans
serif, that would be rendered with Freetype on Linux-based devices. In
addition a bold weight, plus regular and bold italics, and a monospace
version will be made."

"Oxygen is to be constructed closely with the gridfitting aspects of
the Freetype engine. The oxygen fonts will also be autohinted with
Werner Lemberg's "ttfautohint" library to further the compatibility
with the Freetype engine. The aim of this approach is to produce a
family of freetype-specific desktop fonts whose appearance will stay
uniform under different screen render settings, unlike more
traditionally designed 'screen fonts' that have tended to be designed
for best legibility on the Windows GDI render engine."
