BASH script to install, configure, and view your truetype (TTF fonts) in PDFLATEX


Hello,

Here is the script. You need a bit of knowledge of Latex/Linux if you would like to use it.

1. Make sure that you use a new ~/tmp directory.
2. You need those two files run.sh and test.tex.
3. test it with for instance:
Code:
bash run.sh ~/.fonts/amiga.ttf

test.tex
Code:
\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{fonttable}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\renewcommand*{\familydefault}{jcs}
\begin{document}

Test your TTF! \\

\Large
{\bfseries H}{\normalsize ello World}
\bigskip

\normalsize
Normal size: This is a test
\bigskip

\fonttable{jcsr8t}
\end{document}
run.sh
Code:
echo convert ttf

cd 
mkdir tmp

cd tmp

rm test.pdf
cp "$1" newfont.ttf


 mkdir -p ~/texmf/tex/latex/local/
mkdir ~/.texmf-config/web2c/ -p  ; mktexlsr 

echo "\\ProvidesFile{T1jcs.fd}" > ~/texmf/tex/latex/local/T1jcs.fd 
echo "[2009/06/14 Provides font definitions for T1/jcs.]" >> ~/texmf/tex/latex/local/T1jcs.fd 
echo "\\DeclareFontFamily{T1}{jcs}{}" >> ~/texmf/tex/latex/local/T1jcs.fd 
echo "\\DeclareFontShape{T1}{jcs}{m}{n} {<-> jcsr8t } {}" >> ~/texmf/tex/latex/local/T1jcs.fd 
echo "\\endinput " >> ~/texmf/tex/latex/local/T1jcs.fd 


 otftotfm  --no-type1  -fkern  --encoding="T1-WGL4.enc"  --map-file="myfont.map"  "newfont.ttf"  "jcsr8t" 

    mkdir  -p  ~/texmf/fonts/tfm/microsoft/comicsans/
    mkdir -p   ~/texmf/fonts/vf/microsoft/comicsans/
    mkdir -p   ~/texmf/fonts/truetype/comicsans/
    mkdir -p   ~/texmf/fonts/enc/dvips/comicsans/

   cp -v *.tfm  ~/texmf/fonts/tfm/microsoft/comicsans/
   cp -v *.vf  ~/texmf/fonts/vf/microsoft/comicsans/ 
   cp -v *.ttf  ~/texmf/fonts/truetype/comicsans/
   cp -v *.enc  ~/texmf/fonts/enc/dvips/comicsans/ 
   cp myfont*.map ~/texmf/fonts/maps/dvips/comicsans/myfont.map


 texhash
 mkdir -p ~/texmf/fonts/maps/dvips/comicsans/
 updmap --enable Map=~/texmf/fonts/maps/dvips/comicsans/myfont.map

 mkdir ~/.texmf-config/web2c/ -p  ; mktexlsr 

 pdflatex test.tex
 mupdf test.pdf 

 echo done

Thanks for posting your script. Please note however it doesn't:
- use proper conventions (shebang, proper quoting variables, exit 0),
- test if "$1" exists or even has TTF magic ('man magic;'),
- doesn't use proper temporary directory creation ('man mktemp;'),
- test file existence before deletion,
- test for tool existence before using,
- do any error handing.

those are minor improvements, very easily done in bash , i.e.
Code:
 [ ! -f blabla ] && ....
