Printing Type1 fonts, Lyx, AUIS, Latex

Printing Type1 fonts, Lyx, AUIS, Latex

Post by Joseph Howe » Sat, 02 Aug 1997 04:00:00

I have recently installed some Type1 fonts. I can use them in the X
window display, and I can use them in AUIS. However, I can't print
them. In AUIS, when I print the document, it substitutes its own
fonts. If I try viewing them with ghostscript, it doesn't display them
or print them (I've tried setting the gs_fontpath and gs_lib
variables, and I get error messages). Can anyone tell me what I need
to do get new fonts to print?

Also, does anyone know if Lyx can use and print fonts other than its
defaults? I suspect this has something to do with manipulating*
commands, but I don't know latex.  It could be, too, that I'm just
missing something in setting up the Lyx frontend (those of you who've
used it know that its documentation is poor, or at any rate
incomplete).  Can anyone give me some pointers here?

Thanks in advance....

1. Problems using fonts.alias to replace Type1 fonts with Truetype

Hello, I've been having some problems using fonts.alias to replace fonts.
My current goal is to rid myself of as many Type1 fonts as possible, using
similar TrueType fonts instead.  I'm using XFree86 4.0.2, and the beginning
of my XF86Config file looks like this:

Section "Files"
        FontPath        "/usr/share/fonts/truetype"
        FontPath        "/usr/lib/X11/fonts/misc"
        FontPath        "/usr/lib/X11/fonts/75dpi:unscaled"
        FontPath        "/usr/lib/X11/fonts/Type1"
        FontPath        "/usr/lib/X11/fonts/Speedo"
        FontPath        "/usr/lib/X11/fonts/75dpi"

The fonts.alias file in /usr/lib/X11/fonts/Type1 includes the following
lines (linebreaks added for readability):

-adobe-helvetica-medium-r-normal--0-0-0-0-p-0-iso8859-1 \
-adobe-helvetica-medium-o-normal--0-0-0-0-p-0-iso8859-1 \
-adobe-helvetica-medium-i-normal--0-0-0-0-p-0-iso8859-1 \
-adobe-helvetica-bold-r-normal--0-0-0-0-p-0-iso8859-1 \
-adobe-helvetica-bold-o-normal--0-0-0-0-p-0-iso8859-1 \
-adobe-helvetica-bold-i-normal--0-0-0-0-p-0-iso8859-1 \
-adobe-helvetica-medium-r-narrow--0-0-0-0-p-0-iso8859-1 \
-adobe-helvetica-medium-o-narrow--0-0-0-0-p-0-iso8859-1 \
-adobe-helvetica-bold-r-narrow--0-0-0-0-p-0-iso8859-1 \
-adobe-helvetica-bold-o-narrow--0-0-0-0-p-0-iso8859-1 \

When I use gfontsel to make sure that this is working, I find that Arial is
being used for most, but not all, sizes of Helvetica.  Helvetica is still
used for 8, 10, 12, 14, 18, and 24 point fonts.  For example, a request for
the font:




rather than:


I'm also having the same problem with the Times font -- at certain sizes,
Times is still being used instead of Times New Roman.  Thanks in advance to
anyone who can give me any assistance,
