FdSymbol - A math symbol font

FdSymbol is a math symbol font, designed as a companion to the Fedra family
by Typotheque, but it might also fit other contemporary typefaces.

The development of this font package is hosted at github:


To use this font in LaTeX, include


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


1. Run `latex fdsymbol.ins` to generate the LaTeX package.

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

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

3. Copy all necessary files into the texmf tree:

   - fdsymbol.pdf goes to doc/latex/fdsymbol
   - fdsymbol.map in the dvips directory goes to fonts/map/dvips/fdsymbol
   - all other files in the dvips directory go to fonts/enc/dvips/fdsymbol
   - all files in the tfm directory go to fonts/tfm/public/fdsymbol
   - all files in the type1 directory go to fonts/type1/public/fdsymbol
   - fdsymbol.sty goes to tex/latex/fdsymbol

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


5. Finally, you need to activate the map file:

    updmap --enable Map=fdsymbol.map

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