Re: [NTG-context] [***SPAM***] Can't find recommended tool

2013-06-23 Thread d.henman

Pable,
  thanks, but it doesn't work. so easily.  mxtrun only see what is in the TeX 
directory tree and uses that font database.  My question is how to register the 
font to that system so that mtxrun can find it.   How does one do that with a 
ttf font file?

Thanks

 Yes, install your font (I assume is Gentium) on your operative system.
 
 Run mtxrun --script fonts --reload. (Not sure it is required, but I
 need this each time I install a font.)
 
 And (assuming you installed Gentium), here is the sample code:
 
 \usemodule[simplefonts]
 \setmainfont[Gentium]
 \starttext
 \input knuth
 \stoptext
 
 Compile it with context gentium.tex (change file name accordingly) and
 it should work.
 
 If not, please try to describe what happened.
 
 I hope it helps,
 
 
 Pablo

[NTG-context] [***SPAM***] Can't find recommended tool

I am trying to install a font so that Context cn use it.  I am  using the 
simplefont module and have a ttf that I'd like to use.

There is a lot of conflicting information out about to do this and som is 
outdated.   As for ContTeX I did find a nice article, but it says to use the 
program texfont, which ships with ConTex, but I do not have any such file.

texfont --ve=sil --co=gentium --makepath --install


I am using the TexLive version.   Is there any simple method to get this font 
so that it can be used by ConTex MKIV ?
