Hamster Font Manager (HFM) helps you control the avaliability of fonts in all of the supported applications from a central place. It includes modules to support X11, Ghostscript, and TeX. A PostScript module handles PS Fonts while other fonts remain untouched by this program. It features a nice Tcl/TK GUI. For X11 configuration to work, this software has to run on the machine's own X Server.
The jmk-x11-fonts package contains character-cell fonts for use with the X Window System. These fonts attempt to be practical while also remaining both legible and aesthetically pleasing. A wide variety of font sizes are available in both medium and bold weights and in a number of ISO-8859 standard encodings.
The mminstance package creates instances of PostScript Type1 multiple master fonts. (An instance is a version of the font as it looks at one point in its design space.) Mminstance lets you use multiple master fonts with programs that don't handle them directly, such as afm2tfm, ps2pdf, ps2pk, and X Type1 font servers. Mminstance contains two programs. Mmafm creates AFM font metrics from multiple master AMFM and AFM files, and Mmpfb creates a single-master font outline file (PFA or PFB) from the multiple master font itself.
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.
