BeOS System font


I hope someone can help me, I’m looking for the original BeOS system font. Can anyone point me in the right direction? I used BeOS back in the day for a couple of years and loved it. I’ve since been using OSX, but I’d really like to have that font to use in Terminal.

Thanks in advance,


Have you checked

Have you tried Konatu? You can download it straight from the author’s homepage (the page happens to be mostly in Japanese but you should be able to easily locate the Download link):


BeOS 5 used Courier 10 BT Roman for fixed fonts.

Swiss is such a beautiful font. :slight_smile: (One of the things I loved most about BeOS). I assume I could install the TTF files and use it for my Haiku system fonts, assuming the GPL font renderer can display it in a pleasing manner.

I have a BeOS installation CD from around 1999. It should have the font on it.
