getnonfreefonts - download and install fonts which cannot be
distributed on a CD
getnonfreefonts-sys - download and install fonts system-wide which
cannot be distributed on a CD
getnonfreefonts [options] [fontlist]
getnonfreefonts-sys [options] [fontlist]
Some font suppliers provided fonts which can be used freely but they
disallow that money is charged for the distribution. Hence, for
distributions on CD or DVD it is usually impossible to include these
getnonfreefonts is a script which downloads and installs these fonts.
Actually, it first downloads the program getfont<year> from tug.org
which is then executed. getfont<year> does the real work. It will be
updated occasionally to support more fonts. <year> denotes the TeXLive
getnonfreefonts and getnonfreefonts-sys are identical except that
getnonfreefonts installs files to $TEXMFHOME while getnonfreefonts-sys
installs files to $TEXMFLOCAL.
getfont<year> will not be installed permanently on your system. It
only exists in a temporary directory while getnonfreefonts is running.
Run getnonfreefonts --lsfonts to get a list of supported fonts.
Install all fonts.
Provide additional messages for debugging. These messages are
sent to STDERR.
Install fonts even if they are installed already.
Print a help message. Nothing is installed but the directories
where the fonts will be installed and the temporary directory
are shown. <PID> will be replaced by the process ID of the
List all available fonts and tell whether they are installed
--sys If you call getnonfreefonts with the --sys option it behaves
exactly like getnonfreefonts-sys.
Be more verbose. This option is only needed for debugging.
Print version number.
One of the environment variables TMP, TEMP, or TMPDIR must exist. They
are used to determine where to put the temporary files. The directory
must exist and must be writable. /tmp will be used if none of the
variables is defined.
Though this program is supposed to be used with TeX Live it might work
with other TeX distributions too. The programs wget or curl, unzip,
and kpsewhich have to be installed and a recent version of updmap is
required which supports the --enable option.
