The t1utils package contains six programs that manipulate PostScript Type 1 fonts. There are programs that change PFB (binary) fonts into PFA (ASCII) format (and back), that translate fonts into a disassembled human-readable format (and back), and that translate Macintosh Type 1 fonts into PFB or PFA (and back).
ttmkfdir is a tool to create valid and complete fonts.dir files from TrueType fonts. It is very useful when you plan to use a TrueType enabled font server that is based on the X11R6 sample implementation (xfsft for instance). Great care has been taken to correctly identify the encodings that a given TrueType font supports.
UNI-VGA is primarily intended to be the single source of fonts for console and for XDosEmu. It can be used in X11 as-is; for use on console, a script to convert from BDF to PSF is included. It was designed to be usable both in 9-pixel (VGA text console) and in 8-pixel (framebuffer console and X11) modes, with VGA 8th to 9th pixel expansion accurately taken into account.
Xcyr-fonts is a package of Cyrillic screen fonts for X, suitable for Belorussian, Bulgarian, Macedonian, Russian (new and old orthography), Serbian, Ukrainian languages. They are encoded using a new map KOI8-C that coincides with the standard KOI8-(R,U) in the letters area but adds more Cyrillic letters (all of ISO8859-5 plus Yat', Fita, Izhitsa) and some typographic symbols (mostly from CP-1251). The font set is a fully compatible superset of the standard XFree86 Russian Cyrillic fonts, with numerous changes to improve quality.
Xfstt means "X11 Font Server for TrueType fonts". TrueType fonts are generally regarded to be the best scalable fonts for low resolution devices like screens. Examples where good scalable fonts improve the visual quality considerably are Mozilla, GIMP, and Java. A fonts.properties file for use with Java is provided.
efont-unicode-bdf is a comprehensive collection of Unicode BDF fonts. It consists of 10, 12, 14, 16 and 24 pixels fonts; all fonts having bold, italic, and bold-italic typefaces. Included fonts have various origins, and the origin of each font is carefully documented to make it clear whether and under what conditions you may use, modify, or re-distribute any part of our work.
The ClearlyU family of bitmap fonts provides a set of 12 pt, 100 dpi proportional BDF fonts with many of the glyphs needed for Unicode text (including numerous alternate glyphs and other glyphs not encoded in Unicode that are necessary to actually display certain scripts, e.g., Arabic or Devanagari).
