mknfonts(1) create nfont packages


mknfonts [options] files...


This manual page documents briefly the mknfonts command. This manual page was written for the Debian distribution because the original program does not have a manual page.

mknfonts doesn't completely automate the process of creating nfont-packages, but it can do most of the bulk work for you. Just put a bunch of fonts (.ttf, .pfa, .pfb, .afm, ...; most formats that freetype can handle and provide postscript names for) in an empty directory and run:

mknfonts *
You'll get a bunch of packages ready to be moved to .../Library/Fonts/. For best results, you'll want to review the packages. Most traits/weights (besides the really standard ones) won't be handled automatically, so you'll have to add or tweak them manually if you want GNUstep to know about them.


These programs follow the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options starting with two dashes (`-').
