Re: [NTG-context] Postscript Type1 fonts MK IV - [SOLVED]

 Try Taco's suggestion, I myself got unpredictable results with ~/.fonts,
 try instead ~/texmf/fonts/{afm,type1} or even ~/texmf/fonts/data

Thanks! This solved my problem:

  % mkdir -p ~/texmf/fonts/data
  % mv *.{pfb,afm} ~/texmf/fonts/data
  % export OSFONTDIR=$HOME/.fonts;$HOME/texmf/fonts/data

Or, to keep all fonts under ~/.fonts , this also works:

  % mkdir -p ~/.fonts/tex
  % mv *.{pfb,afm} ~/.fonts/tex
  % mkdir -p ~/texmf/fonts
  % ln -s ~/.fonts/tex ~/texmf/fonts/data
  % export OSFONTDIR=$HOME/.fonts

For some reason I was trying $HOME/context/tex/texmf/fonts/data
previously, which didn't work. But things are now working quite
nicely now -- thank you all.

Regards,

John

We should try to find what is causing the erratic behavior of ~/.fonts

Perhaps it is all just because the default $OSFONTDIR does not contain
~/.fonts ? I tried this:

  export OSFONTDIR=/usr/share/fonts:~/.fonts

and everything works as it should.

I think the OSFONTDIR is unnecessary here, context will seach ~/texmf
anyway.

Mine is:

Mine is (in setuptex)

OSFONTDIR=$HOME/.fonts;/usr/share/fonts;
export OSFONTDIR

I had some troubles with OSFONTDIR and opentype fonts in the past. Perhaps 
I should use : and trailing // and test again.
