ccicons - Typesetting Creative Commons icons using LaTeX

This package offers authors who want to publish their documents under
a Creative Commons license an easy way to include the relevant icons
in their documents.


To use package, include


in the preamble of your LaTeX document. See the PDF documentation for
the details.


1. Run `latex ccicons.ins` to generate the LaTex package.

2. Create the following directories in a local texmf tree:

   - doc/latex/ccicons
   - fonts/enc/dvips/ccicons
   - fonts/map/dvips/ccicons
   - fonts/tfm/public/ccicons
   - fonts/type1/public/ccicons
   - fonts/opentype/public/ccicons
   - tex/latex/ccicons

3. Copy all relevant files into the texmf tree:

   - ccicons.pdf goes to doc/latex/ccicons
   - ccicons-u.enc goes to fonts/enc/dvips/ccicons
   - goes to fonts/map/dvips/ccicons
   - ccicons.tfm goes to fonts/tfm/public/ccicons
   - ccicons.pfb goes to fonts/type1/public/ccicons
   - ccicons.otf goes to fonts/opentype/public/ccicons
   - ccicons.sty goes to tex/latex/ccicons

4. Afterwards, you may need to regenerate the file database:


5. Finally, activate the map file by running

    updmap --enable Map

For a system-wide installation, replace updmap by updmap-sys.
