Installing a Type 1 font
Once you have a prepared Type 1 font, either direct from CTAN or the like, or having "prepared" it yourself, you can get on with installation.
The procedure is merely an extension of that for packages, etc., so much of what follows will be familiar:
- Install the files, in your local
texmf tree (the advice
about installing non-standard things applies here, too). The following list gives reasonable destinations for the various files related to a font family <//fname//>: ``` .pfb, .pfa .../fonts/type1/<foundry>/<fname> .tfm .../fonts/tfm/<foundry>/<fname> .vf .../fonts/vf/<foundry>/<fname> .sty, .fd .../tex/latex/<fname> .map .../fonts/map/dvips/<foundry> ``` but if you are lucky, you will be starting from a distribution from CTAN and there is a corresponding ''tds.zip'' file: using this TDS-file saves the bother of deciding where to put your files in the TDS tree.
- Regenerate the file indexes (as described in
- Update the
dvips, pdfTeX and other maps:
- On any current TeX Live-based system, or a teTeX v3.0
system, execute the command
``` updmap-sys --enable Map <fname>.map ``` as root. (If you //can// use ''updmap-sys'' --- do; if not --- presumably because your (La)TeX system was set up by someone else --- you have to fall back on plain ''updmap'', but be aware that it's a potent source of confusion, setting up map sets that might be changed behind your back.) - On a current MiKTeX system, update the system file ''updmap.cfg'', using the shell command ``` initexmf --edit-config-file updmap ``` adding a line at the end: ``` Map <fname>.map ``` for each font family <//fname//> you are adding to the system. Now generate revised maps with the shell command ``` initexmf --mkmaps ``` This, and other matters, are described in MiKTeX [[http://docs.miktex.org/manual/advanced.html|"advanced" documentation]].
Both processes (preparing and installing a font) are very well (and thoroughly) described in Philipp Lehman's guide to font installation, which may be found on CTAN.
