Direc­tory tex-archive/fonts/archaic/etruscan

    The etruscan bundle provides fonts for the Etruscan script which was 
in use between approximately 1000 BC to 100 AD. The font comes in mirrored
forms suitable for writing either left-to-right or right-to-left (as the
Etruscans did). The bundle is one of a series for archaic scripts.

etr10.pfb
etr10.tfm

    To install the package:
o If you want MetaFont sources uncomment the appropraite lines in etruscan.ins
o run: latex etruscan.ins, which will generate:
       etruscan.sty
       *.fd files
       etruscan.map
       and possibly etr10.mf
o Move *.sty and *.fd files to a location where LaTeX will find them
    e.g., .../texmf-local/tex/latex/etruscan
o Move *.afm, *.pfb and *.tfm files to where LaTeX looks for font information
    e.g., .../texmf-var/fonts/afm/public/archaic/*.afm
          .../texmf-var/fonts/type1/public/archaic/*.pfb
          .../texmf-var/fonts/tfm/public/archaic/*.tfm
o Add the *.map information to the dvips/pdftex font maps
   If you want the MetaFont version as well:
   o Move the *.mf files to, e.g., ...texmf-var/fonts/source/public/etruscan
   o Add a line like the following to the (texmf/fontname/)special.map file
     etr10.mf     public     etruscan
o Refresh the database
 (for more information on the above see the FAQ).

o run: (pdf)latex tryetruscan for a test of the font

    If you want a full manual with all MetaFont and LaTeX code and commentary,
comment out the \OnlyDescription line in etruscan.dtx.
o run: (pdf)latex etruscan.dtx
o (for an index run: makeindex -s gind.ist *.idx)
o run: (pdf)latex *.dtx
o Print *.(pdf|dvi) for a hardcopy of the package manual
