chessfonts/enpassant
A collection of type1 chessfonts ready for TeX
Version 1.1 Ulrike Fischer 2006

New in version 1.1:
Support for the fonts AlphaDia (can be found on CTAN in the skaknew package),
Alpha2 (from www.enpassant.dk) and chess-7 (also found on www.enpassant.dk)

The fonts in this folder are mostly fonts that I converted from source
that I found on http://www.enpassant.dk/. But I add also support files
for other free chess fonts.

On the website the fonts are all declared  to be free, and the
maintainer of the site, Eric Bentzen, said that he didn't object if I
put the converted fonts on CTAN. But I couldn't contact all the
authors so I decided to upload only a part of the pfb. For the other
you must do the conversion yourself. The needed ttf2pt1 command is

ttf2pt1 -b ***.ttf  chess-***-raw

Please look in the map-files for the correct output name.

If you want to use the fonts for a commercial project, please check
that no author objects.

Other available chessfonts are skak (Metafont) and skaknew (Type1)
which you can find on CTAN.

It is quite possible that the fonts or their metrics (tfm) need to be
adjusted. I didn't do anything to improve quality (I wouldn't have
been able, I don't have an application to fiddle with fonts, and I
don't have the skill anyway). If you have the skill and the
possibilities to correct possible errors I would be quite happy if
you sent my the corrected files at skak <at> nililand <dot> de.

CONTENTS AND INSTALLATION AND DOCUMENTATION

- Readme (this file)
- a lot of tfm-files: put them e.g. in fonts/tfm/chess/enpassant
- a lot of pfb-files: put them in fonts/type1/chess/enpassant
- a lot of afm-files: put them in fonts/afm/chess/enpassant
- a lot of enc-files: put them in fonts/enc/chess/enpassant
- a lot of .fd-files: put them in tex/latex/chessfss/enpassant
- and a map-file which should go somewhere in fonts/map and which you should add
to your .map-files with e.g. updmap.

The lucena, the alphadia and the skaknew fonts has special mask chars
to color the background of a char. Please read the documentation of
chessfss (at least version 1.2) to learn how to use.

The documentation of chessfss shows how to use the fonts.
chessfonts_gallery.pdf (also part of chessfss) shows the look of the
fonts.

ATTENTION
1. The .tfm of the lucena font has been renamed (to reflect the
mask-chars needed for color support), so make sure that you are using
the new fd-file and not an old chessfss.cfg.

2. If something doesn't work as expected please make sure before
sending a bug report if it isn't the fault of older versions of
chessfss.cfg, *.enc-files, *enc.def-files and *.fd-files, tfm/pk etc.

en­pas­sant – En­pas­sant chess font sup­port

The pack­age con­tains the nec­es­sary files to use free chess fonts from the En pas­sant site (or on CTAN), with (La)TeX. For some of the fonts the pfb-file is also part of the pack­age, or is avail­able else­where on CTAN. For oth­ers the pfb must be made from the orig­i­nal ttf from the en­pas­sant site. In­struc­tions about the con­ver­sion and the use of the font can be found in the doc­u­men­ta­tion of chess­fss.
