update-vfontmap(8) shell script to generate /var/lib/texmf/vfontmap


update-vfontmap [options]


This manual page documents briefly the update-vfontmap command. This manual page was written for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution because the original script was designed for Debian packaging system.

update-vfontmap is a shell script to generate /var/lib/texmf/vfontmap from files in /etc/texmf/vfontmap.d/*.map

The xdvik-ja provides 20ascii-ptex.map and 20ntt-jtex.map, and we assume that other TeX related packages should use the name only with the lower cases. The two digit numeral determines the order in which update-vfontmap read a file.

A user who wants to customize /var/lib/texmf/vfontmap should add, for example, 22myfonts.map in /etc/texmf/vfontmap.d/ and run 'update-vfontmap'.
