A script for changing format of CM fonts used by dvips (1.11 KB, text/plain)

Description Michal Jaegermann 2001-03-16 06:01:50 UTC
Description of 'cmpskit' says "Just type ..." with a reference to
either 'dvipsfnt' or 'dvi2psfnt'.  None of these scripts can really
work in a form as provided because locations are wrong.

Moreover usefulness of the whole 'cmpskit' is in doubt as various Type1
fonts, including Computer Modern in this format, are included in
'tetex-fonts' package although /usr/share/texmf/dvips/config/updmap
script has turned them off by default.  It is possibly that 'cmpskit'
actually would collide with that.

Likely a simple script for changing 'type1_default' in 'updmap' and
running the later one would be more useful than this whole 'cmpskit'


Comment 1 Eido Inoue 2001-03-23 09:54:22 UTC
You're right... the script for switching between the default DVI font and
Computer Modern Postscript relies on config fiels not on Red Hat Linux.

As the usefulness of the font alone is in question, as well as the license, it
will be removed.

Comment 2 Michal Jaegermann 2001-03-23 22:02:56 UTC
The following attached scripts does, for the current and from RH7
at least, distribution of teTeX practically the same thing as this
whole 'cmpskit'.
