This is the README for the noto package, version 2019-12-09.

This package provides LaTeX, pdfLaTeX, XeLaTeX and LuaLaTeX
support for the NotoSerif, NotoSans and NotoSansMono
families of fonts, designed by Steve Matteson for Google.

To install this package on a TDS-compliant TeX system
download the file "tex-archive"/install/fonts/noto.tds.zip,
where the preferred URL for "tex-archive" is
http://mirror.ctan.org. Unzip the archive at the root of an
appropriate texmf tree, likely a personal or local tree. If
necessary, update the file-name database (e.g., texhash).
Update the font-map files by enabling the Map file noto.map.

These are only effective for NotoSans and NotoSansMono.

NotoSerif, NotoSans and NotoMono families, respectively,
and \notoseriflgr, \notosanslgr and \notomonolgr
activate the LGR encoding.

Macros \notosanscondensed, \notosanssemicondensed,
\notosansextracondensed, \notomonocondensed,
