NAME

t1libconfig - create the t1lib.config and FontDataBase files for t1lib  

SYNOPSIS

t1libconfig [ -v,--version ] [ -h,--help ] --force ] [ fontdirectory... ]  

DESCRIPTION

t1libconfig scans a list of directories for Type 1 fonts and font metric files, and generates a configuration file and font database file for the t1lib rasterizer library accordingly. By default, it looks in all subdirectories of /usr/share/X11/fonts, and in /usr/lib/ghostscript. Extra directories to search may be specified on the command line. The t1libconfig script tries not to scan the same directory twice (this is, however, not foolproof, since symbolic links may result in different paths pointing to the same directory on GNU/Linux systems).  

OPTIONS

-v,--version
Print the version of t1libconfig and exit.
-h,--help
Print help about usage and exit.
--force
Force the generation of new configuration files even if these files already exist on the system.
 

FILES

/etc/t1lib/t1lib.config
Contains configuration information for t1lib, including colon-separated lists of paths to Type 1 font files and font metrics files, and the location of the default font database file
/etc/t1lib/FontDataBase
Contains a list of the names of Type 1 font files to be used by t1lib.
