              "LuxiMono" font pack for LaTeX

This bundle includes the LuxiMono Type1 fonts and all
required files to use them with LaTeX on the Un*x or PC

LuxiMono is a family of general-purpose monospaced
(typewriter) fonts.  They are original designs by Kris
Holmes and Charles Bigelow from Bigelow and Holmes Inc., who
developed the Luxi typeface designs in Ikarus digital
format.  URW++ Design and Development GmbH converted the
Ikarus format fonts to TrueType and Type 1 font programs and
implemented the grid-fitting "hints" and kerning tables in
the Luxi fonts.

The Luxi fonts include the Euro symbol.  Accessing it
through the textcompanion encoding and the command \texteuro
needs at least version 9 of the PSNFSS system.

The below installation instructions assume a TDS-compliant
TeX system, such as teTeX, MikTeX or VTeX/Free.  Yet they
may not exactly fit your particular TeX system; please,
consult its documentation, too!  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.

What's new?
  Package luximono.sty:  minor bug fix, regarding the 
  implementation of the package option "scaled=...".
  Changed location of the font map file ul9.ali for VTeX;
  the file resides now in the directory fonts/map/vtex,
  rather than vtex/config, so as to comply with TDS 1.0
  fixed the asterisk characters, so that they are vertically
  centered now

Installing the Type1 font files
The Type1 font files 


are to be copied to the directory


of your TeX system, and the related .afm files should go


Most likely, you will have to create these directories

Installing the TeX support files from the archive ul9.zip
Unpack the ZIP archive ul9.zip in the directory "texmf" of
your TeX system; thus, all files will be copied to the
appropriate directories.

Updating the filename database
Many TeX systems require manual updating of a "filename
database" after adding of new files.  Please, consult the
documentation of your TeX system!

Configuring your TeX system
The following steps vary, according to your TeX system.
There are different sets of instructions provided for

          * teTeX
          * VTeX/Free,
          * other TDS-compliant TeX systems

Configuring teTeX
Use the shell script "updmap" to add the font map file named
"ul9.map" to the configuration.  See the documentation of
your particular teTeX version how to use the script.

Configuring VTeX/Free (v8.00 and later)
Make VTeX read the additional font map ("aliasing") file
ul9.ali.  This is usually accomplished by putting a record
for ul9.ali into each of the configuration files


The name "ul9.ali" is to be added to the TYPE1 section of
the above-mentioned files:


Configuring other TDS-compliant TeX systems
After unpacking of the archive file ul9.zip, a font map file
ul9.map for the LuxiMono fonts resides in the directory
texmf/dvips/config.  It works for both dvips and pdfTeX.
| Consult the documentation of your TeX system how to make
| it use this additional font map file!

If the documentation of your TeX system does _not_ explain
how to install additional map files, the following steps
should work in most cases for dvips and pdfTeX.

Make dvips read the additional font map file ul9.map.  This
is usually accomplished by adding the line

p +ul9.map

to the dvips configuration file.  With teTeX, fpTeX or
MikTeX this is texmf/dvips/config/config.ps; with emTeX/TDS
additions should go into the "local" configuration file
texmf\dvips\config\dvips.ini (or ..\local\dvips.ini).

Make pdfTeX read the additional font map file ul9.map.  This
is usually accomplished by adding the line

map +ul9.map

to the pdfTeX configuration file.  With teTeX, fpTeX or
MikTeX this is texmf/pdftex/config/pdftex.cfg.

Note that configuring other programs such as dvipdfm or the
DVI viewer is _not_ explained here; the required actions
vary too much among the TeX systems.
