NAME

       updmap.cfg  -  configuration  of  font  mapping/inclusion for dvips and
       friends.

DESCRIPTION

       The file updmap.cfg is the central font configuration file of  a  teTeX
       system  and  is read by updmap(1). It describes if and how fonts should
       be included (or  not  included)  into  PS-/PDF-files.  This  works  for
       Outline  (Postscript  Type1) and Bitmap Fonts (Postscript Type3) mostly
       coming from MetaFont.

       updmap is a utility that creates font configuration files for dvips(1),
       pdftex(1),   xdvi(1),   ps2pk(1),  gsftopk(1),  dvipdfm(1)  and  (soon)
       dvipdfmx(1).  In an ideal world, updmap would be unnecessary -- each of
       these  programs  would  read  the same configuration file to learn what
       fonts are available and how they should be treated.  As  things  stand,
       however,  each  of  these  tools  has subtly different requirements and
       thereby needs its own font configuration  file.   updmap  creates  font
       configuration  files  for  all  of these programs from a single source,
       updmap.cfg, allowing you to easily keep all the different configuration
       files in sync.

       dvipsPreferOutline
       Configures  if dvips (by default) should prefer bitmap fonts or outline
       fonts if both are available? Independend of this setting, outlines  can
       be  forced  by putting "p psfonts_t1.map" into a config file that dvips
       reads. Bitmaps can be forced  by  putting  "p  psfonts_pk.map"  into  a
       config  file.  We  provide  such  config files which can be enabled via
       dvips -Poutline ... resp. dvips -Ppk ...
       Valid settings for dvipsPreferOutline are true / false.

       LW35
       Which fonts of the "Basic 35 Laserwriter Fonts" do you want to use  and
       how are the filenames chosen? Valid settings:
       URW:     URW fonts with "vendor" filenames (e.g. n019064l.pfb)
       URWkb:   URW fonts with "berry" filenames (e.g. uhvbo8ac.pfb)
       ADOBE:   Adobe fonts with "vendor" filenames (e.g. hvnbo___.pfb)
       ADOBEkb: Adobe fonts with  "berry" filenames (e.g. phvbo8an.pfb)

       dvipsDownloadBase
       Configures  if  dvips  (by  default)  should  download  the standard 35
       LaserWriter fonts into the document (set true) or should these fonts be
       used from the ps interpreter / printer (set false).
       The  user  can  override  the  default by specifying dvips -Pdownload35
       build-in fonts.
       Valid settings are true / false.

       pdftexDownloadBase14
       Should pdftex download the base 14 pdf fonts? Since some configurations
       (ps  /  pdf  tools  /  printers)  use bad default fonts, it is safer to
       download the fonts. The pdf files will get bigger, though.
       Valid settings are true (download the fonts) or false  (don’t  download
       the fonts). Adobe recomments to embed all fonts.

       dvipdfmDownloadBase14
       Should   dvipdfm   download   the   base   14  pdf  fonts?  Since  some
       configurations (ps / pdf tools / printers) use bad default fonts, it is
       safer to download the fonts. The pdf files will get bigger, though.
       Valid  settings  are true (download the fonts) or false (don’t download
       the fonts).

       Map
       Points to a map file, which describes a mapping from a font (called  in
       the TeX document) to the pfb file containing the Postscript code.
       Usage: Map filename.map

       The  syntax of map files is the same as dvips(1) uses, see section 6.4,
       "’psfonts.map’: PostScript font catalog" in  the  manual  of  dvips(1),
       available as info and pdf file.

       MixedMap
       Similar  to  Map.  It  should  be used when there is Type1 and a bitmap
       implementation of the font (the latter mostly  coming  from  MetaFont).
       These  entries  will  not  be  used  in  the  default  map  of dvips if
       dvipsPreferOutline is set to false.
       Usage: MixedMap filename.map

       The sign # precedes a comment.

       Not used Map files should be commented out using the string #!  at  the
       beginning  of the line. These entries can be (de-)activaed using updmap
       with the options --enable and --disable.

SPECIAL TO DEBIAN

       In Debian the file updmap.cfg is a generated file sitting in  /var.  It
       is    generated    by    concatenating    the    *.cfg    files    from
       /etc/texmf/updmap.d/. These files follow the syntax of updmap.cfg,  but
       contain only parts of it.

       distributions without contacting the author. Any mistakes or  omissions
       in the manual page are my fault; inquiries about or corrections to this
