This directory contains a zip archive uop.zip providing a set of
Postscript Type-1 fonts, which URW has made available for non-commercial

The fonts are accompanied by the TeX font metrics, virtual fonts, font
definition and font mapping files to use them with the LaTeX typesetting
system on the PC or Un*x platforms. These were produced using version
1.929 of fontinst, following the instructions given in the Type1 Font
Installation Guide:

  info/Type1fonts/fontinstallationguide

The layout of the distribution and the related installation instructions
suit recent, TDS-compliant TeX systems, including teTeX and MikTeX.


Installing the Files
--------------------

Unzip the archive at the root of a texmf hierarchy, preferably          
a "local" tree, such as $HOME/texmf or /usr/local/share/texmf           
on a Un*x-like system or C:\localtexmf on a Windows system; the         
documentation of your LaTeX distribution should tell you where to       
install new files.                                                      


Updating the Filename Database
------------------------------

Most LaTeX systems improve the efficiency of file access by maintaining
a data base of file names. The documentation of your LaTeX distribution
should tell you what you have to do to update this data base after
adding new files. For example, on a teTeX-based system, execute

  texhash

On a MikTeX system, execute

  initexmf -u

or click on Options and then the Refresh button for the file-name       
database.                                                               


Configuring the Font Maps
-------------------------

LaTeX systems maintain map files which associate font files with        
font names. The file uop.map in the archive defines the appropriate     
associations for these fonts. The documentation of your LaTeX           
distribution should tell you what you have to do to add the             
associations in uop.map to the global map file or files. For example,   
on a teTeX-3 system, execute                                            

  updmap-sys --enable Map=uop.map

or add 

  Map uop.map 

to updmap.cfg and run updmap or updmap-sys.

On a MikTeX system: 

  + Run 

initexmf --edit-config-file updmap

and add the following at the end of the file:

Map uop.map

  + Save the file and exit Notepad.
  
  + Refresh the file name database and run 

initexmf --mkmaps 


Using the URWClassico Fonts in LaTeX
------------------------------------

Add the following to the preamble of your document to make these fonts
the default for sans serif:

  \renewcommand{\sfdefault}{uop}

To make sans serif (instead of the "Roman" family) the default for      
ordinary text, also add                                                 

  \renewcommand{\rmdefault}{\sfdefault}

clas­sico – URW Clas­sico type-1 fonts

The archive pro­vides four type-1 fonts with met­rics and LaTeX sup­port files. URW Clas­sico is a clone of the Op­tima type­face, a very well-known sans serif face de­signed by Her­mann Zapf.

The fonts were made avail­able for non-com­mer­cial dis­tri­bu­tion by Ar­tifex soft­ware. The sup­port files were gen­er­ated us­ing fontinst.
