LaTeX Support For Futura Fonts From Adobe As Used By No Starch Press Version 1.3 2008/03/20 This package provides metric files and LaTeX support for Futura fonts from Adobe. It has everything you need to typeset in this font - except the font itself, of course. There are several versions of the fonts available, different by the version year. This package provides support for fonts as used by No Starch Press, http://www.nostarch.com. To prevent a clash with support of a newer version by W. A. Schmidt, the fontname |pfv| is used instead of the standard |pfu|. INSTALLATION First, you need to purchase the fonts themselves: the pfb files are not included in the package. If you got the fonts from No Starch Press, do not rename the pfb files. However, if there are uppercase letters in your file names, downcase them. If you obtained the fonts from another source, rename the files according to the documentation (futurans.pdf). If your TeX system is TDS-compliant, install the files into $TEXMF/fonts/type1/adobe/futurans. Then download http://ctan.tug.org/install/fonts/psfonts/adobe/futurans.tds.zip and unzip this file in $TEXMF. Add +pfv.map to the configuration files of dvips, pdftex and your dvi previewer. Run updmap and texhash programs to update the configuration files and file names database. The included style futurans.sty makes your default Sans Serif family. NOTE The files were generated using fontinst 1.927. CHANGES v1.1 Added light letterspaced, bold compressed and heavy compressed fonts v1.2 Changed scales for letterspaced and compressed fonts v1.3 Added medium, bold and heavy letterspaced fonts Boris Veytsman, email@example.com
