The upgraded ln03 driver has been contributed by Matt Thomas. It will be found in the sub-directory thomas. It is set up to use pk fonts. Note the inverted name ln03dvi for this driver. The function is still the same. dvi-->ln03 output. Some write-white fonts are provided in cmfonts/gf/gf300w. There were set for a Ricoh 4080, and may not be quite right for the ln03. They will still be an improvement on write-black fonts. At some time in the future all fonts will be sent out in PK format, but if you find only gf format in cmfonts/gf/gf300w you will have to compile and run gftopk (from MFware). You can make up other fonts using METAFONT. Look at the RicohFortyEighty mode_def in U_Wash.mf (utilityfonts/bases) make a copy of this into your own mode_def file, and reset the parameters as necessary. There is a good deal of discussion and guidance in recent editions of TUGboat (volumes 8 and 9, passim). Remember to include the line input white_setup in your mode_def file, (see the comments in U_Wash.mf) The amsfonts may not be entirely satisfactory, but they are the product of old Metafont79 and are not subject to the same adjustments as newer fonts. Even a WRITE-WHITE base may not be entirely satisfactory. THe nicks come out very blunt on some characters, and pixel editing may be necessary in the long run.
