I'm trying to install a type 1 postscript font for use with TexShop,
2.03, running on Tiger 10.4.1 The font is a lwfn file and there is
an afm file. The font was named Csc and worked fine in Textures.
Following Bruno Voisin's guide, I renamed the font Cscr8a, and using
the terminal window, succeeded in generating the file Cscr8a.pfb.
The three files, lwfn, afm, and pfb all are in the same folder. As
instructed, in the same folder I created a file named Csc-drv.tex
which contained the lines
Bruno's next step is "Run TeX" on the file Csc-drv.tex to produce PL,
VPL, and FD files.
My question -- how? I tried various combinations in the typeset
menu of TeXShop. All gave tex errors as noted in the console, except
for plain tex with personal script. In this case I got a message
that the tool could not be found. I guess the tool is fontinst.sty.
But that file was indeed installed by the i-installer. It's in the
system library at location
(Actually that is the address given by the getinfo service. I
imagine this is the same address as the path
which is how it appears when opening iBook manually.)
Just for good measure, I put a copy of the "base" folder in a mirror
but still tex did not find the tool.
Best, Charles Pugh
BTW There is an apparent misspelling in Bruno's guide. It says that
the -drv.tex file should have the first line
as contrasted to fontinst.sty I did try it this way also, just to be
sure, but had no better luck.
