============================================================ Ibycus4, version 4.5 as of 2004-10-27 ============================================================ Pierre MacKay <mackay at cs.washington.edu> Walter Schmidt <w-a-schmidt at gmx.net> Overview -------- Ibycus4 is a Greek typeface, based on Silvio Levy's realization of a classic Didot cut of Greek type from around 1800. It is accompanied by a set of macro packages to use it with Plain TeX or LaTeX 2e. See the file NEWS for a summary of the latest changes. Installing ---------- The below installation instructions assume a TDS-compliant TeX system, in particular teTeX or MikTeX. The directory name "texmf" refers to the root directory of a TDS directory tree. In case your TeX systems has more than one directory tree, its documentation should tell you where to install new files. In case you have installed a previous release of the Ibycus4 system, delete * the directory texmf/fonts/vf/public/ibycus/ * the file texmf/dvips/iby.map * and the files texmf/fonts/tfm/public/ibycus4/fibo.pl texmf/fonts/tfm/public/ibycus4/fibo.tfm texmf/fonts/tfm/public/ibycus4/fibr.pl texmf/fonts/tfm/public/ibycus4/fibr.tfm texmf/fonts/type1/public/ibycushtg-regular.pfb (or .pfa) before installing the new release. To install Ibycus 4, v4.5, * Copy the everything from the directories doc, fonts and tex of the distribution to the corresponding directories texmf/doc, texmf/fonts and texmf/tex of your TeX system. * Update the file name data base of your TeX system (if applicable), * Add the information from the font mapping file texmf/fonts/map/dvips/ibycus4/iby.map to the configuration of dvips, pdfTeX and related programs. See the documentation of your TeX system for the details. In particular, your TeX system may expect map files in a different directory such as texmf/dvips/config; move iby.map to that directory, if necessary. Make sure that there is no further file named "iby.map" from a previous Ibycus version around! Finally read the text file README, which should have been installed in the directory texmf/doc/generic/ibycus4/ of the TDS directory tree. It describes the usage of the Ibycus4 system.
