ps­la­tex – Use PostScript fonts by de­fault

A small pack­age that makes LaTeX de­fault to ‘stan­dard’ PostScript fonts. It is ba­si­cally a merger of the times and the (ob­so­lete) math­ptm pack­ages from the psnfss suite. You must have in­stalled stan­dard LaTeX and the psnfss PostScript fonts to use this pack­age. The main novel fea­ture is that the ps­la­tex pack­age tries to com­pen­sate for the vi­sual dif­fer­ences be­tween the Adobe fonts by scal­ing Hel­vetica by 90%, and ‘con­dens­ing’ Courier (i.e. scal­ing hor­i­zon­tally) by 85%. The pack­age is sup­plied with a (unix) shell file for a ‘ps­la­tex‘ com­mand that al­lows stan­dard LaTeX doc­u­ments to be pro­cessed, with­out need­ing to edit the file.

Note that cur­rent psnfss uses a dif­fer­ent tech­nique for scal­ing Hel­vetica, and treats Courier as a lost cause (there are bet­ter free fixed-width avail­able now, than there were when ps­la­tex was de­signed). As a re­sult, ps­la­tex is widely con­sid­ered ob­so­lete.
