The leawood package provides all of the files needed to make the ITC
Leawood font available to TeX and LaTeX.  Note that the font itself is
not freely available; the leawood package assumes you have already
purchased ITC Leawood.

leawood.pdf contains some brief documentation and font samples.


Copy all of the ITC Leawood .pfb files into
texmf/fonts/type1/public/leawood.  Optionally copy all of the .afm
files into texmf/fonts/afm/public/leawood.  Remember: ITC Leawood is a
commercial font; you have to purchase the .pfb (PostScript Type 1)
files.  In order for LaTeX to recognize ITC Leawood the font files
must be renamed according to the Berry naming scheme:

    lwb_____.PFB --> ilwb8a.pfb
    lwbi____.PFB --> ilwbi8a.pfb
    lwbl____.PFB --> ilwc8a.pfb
    lwbli___.PFB --> ilwci8a.pfb
    lwm_____.PFB --> ilwm8a.pfb
    lwmi____.PFB --> ilwmi8a.pfb
    lww_____.PFB --> ilwk8a.pfb
    lwwi____.PFB --> ilwki8a.pfb

and likewise for the .afm files.

Copy the contents of leawood's texmf subdirectory onto your local
texmf directory (e.g., /usr/local/texmf or C:\localtexmf).  Run
texhash or invoke whatever program is needed to update TeX's filename

Tell dvips, pdftex, xdvi, yap, etc. to utilize leawood.map.  In the
teTeX TeX distribution, this is done by adding leawood.map (possibly
with full pathname) to the extra_modules section of the updmap script
(located in texmf/dvips/config/) then running updmap.  In other
distributions, you may need to add "p +leawood.map" to your config.ps
file (probably also located in texmf/dvips/config/) and, if you use
pdfTeX, "map +leawood.map" to your pdftex.cfg file (probably in

The leawood package uses LuxiMono as its default fixed-width font so
it is recommended that you install the luximono package as well.
(leawood will issue a warning message -- but not abort -- if luximono
is unavailable.)  luximono is freely available from CTAN at


Put "\usepackage{leawood}" in your document's preamble.  This replaces
Computer Modern with ITC Leawood as the default body font.  See
leawood.pdf for further details and a description of the package
