updmap

SYNOPSIS
       updmap [OPTION] ... [COMMAND]
       updmap-sys [OPTION] ... [COMMAND]

DESCRIPTION
       updmap version svn33988 (2014-05-12 15:39:32 +0900)

       Update   the  default  font  map  files  used  by  pdftex,  dvips,  and
       dvipdfm(x), and optionally pxdvi, as determined  by  all  configuration
       files  updmap.cfg  (the  ones  returned  by  running  "kpsewhich  --all
       updmap.cfg", but see below).

       Among other things, these map files are used to determine  which  fonts
       should be used as bitmaps and which as outlines, and to determine which
       font files are included in the PDF or PostScript output.

       updmap-sys is intended to affect the system-wide  configuration,  while
       updmap affects personal configuration files only, overriding the system
       files.  As a consequence, once updmap has been run, even a single time,
       running  updmap-sys  no  longer  has  any effect.  (updmap-sys issues a
       warning in this situation.)

       By default, the TeX filename database (ls-R) is also updated.

OPTIONS
       --cnffile FILE
              read FILE for the updmap configuration (can  be  given  multiple
              times, in which case all the files are used)

       --dvipdfmxoutputdir DIR
              specify output directory (dvipdfm(x) syntax)

       --dvipsoutputdir DIR
              specify output directory (dvips syntax)

       --pdftexoutputdir DIR
              specify output directory (pdftex syntax)

       --pxdvioutputdir DIR
              specify output directory (pxdvi syntax)

       --outputdir DIR
              specify output directory (for all files)

       --copy cp generic files rather than using symlinks

       --force
              recreate files even if config hasn't changed

       --nomkmap
              do not recreate map files

       --nohash
              do not run texhash

       --version
              show version information and exit

       --showoption OPTION
              show the current setting of OPTION

       --showoptions OPTION
              show possible settings for OPTION

       --setoption OPTION VALUE
              set OPTION to value; option names below

       --setoption OPTION=VALUE
              as above, just different syntax

       --enable MAPTYPE MAPFILE
              add  "MAPTYPE  MAPFILE"  to  updmap.cfg,  where  MAPTYPE is Map,
              MixedMap, or KanjiMap

       --enable Map=MAPFILE
              add "Map MAPFILE" to updmap.cfg

       --enable MixedMap=MAPFILE add "MixedMap MAPFILE" to updmap.cfg

       --enable KanjiMap=MAPFILE add "KanjiMap MAPFILE" to updmap.cfg

       --disable MAPFILE
              disable MAPFILE, of whatever type

       --listmaps
              list all active and inactive maps

       --listavailablemaps
              same as --listmaps, but without unavailable map files

       --syncwithtrees
              disable unavailable map files in updmap.cfg

       Explanation of the map types: the (only)  difference  between  Map  and
       MixedMap is that MixedMap entries are not added to psfonts_pk.map.  The
       purpose is to help users with devices that render Type 1 outline  fonts
       worse  than  mode-tuned  Type 1 bitmap fonts.  So, MixedMap is used for
       fonts that are available as both Type 1 and Metafont.  KanjiMap entries
       are added to psfonts_t1.map and kanjix.map.

       Explanation  of  the  OPTION  names  for  --showoptions,  --showoption,
       --setoption:

       dvipsPreferOutline
              true,false  (default true)

              Whether dvips uses bitmaps or outlines, when both are available.

       dvipsDownloadBase35

              Whether   maps  for  pxdvi  (Japanese-patched  xdvi)  are  under
              updmap's control.

       kanjiEmbed
              (any string)

       kanjiVariant
              (any string)

              See below.

       LW35   URWkb,URW,ADOBEkb,ADOBE  (default URWkb)

              Adapt the font and file names  of  the  standard  35  PostScript
              fonts.

       URWkb  URW fonts with "berry" filenames    (e.g. uhvbo8ac.pfb)

       URW    URW fonts with "vendor" filenames   (e.g. n019064l.pfb)

       ADOBEkb
              Adobe fonts with "berry" filenames  (e.g. phvbo8an.pfb)

       ADOBE  Adobe fonts with "vendor" filenames (e.g. hvnbo___.pfb)

              These  options are only read and acted on by updmap; dvips, pdf-
              tex, etc., do not know anything about them.  They work by chang-
              ing the default map file which the programs read, so they can be
              overridden by specifying command-line options  or  configuration
              files  to  the  programs,  as  explained  at  the  beginning  of
              updmap.cfg.

              The options kanjiEmbed and kanjiVariant specify special replace-
              ments  in the map lines.  If a map contains the string @kanjiEm-
              bed@, then this will be replaced by the value  of  that  option;
              similarly  for kanjiVariant.  In this way, users of Japanese TeX
              can select different fonts to be included in the final output.

ENVIRONMENT
       Explanation of trees and files normally used:

              If --cnffile is specified on the command line (possibly multiple
              times),  its value(s) are used.  Otherwise, updmap reads all the
              updmap.cfg files found by running `kpsewhich  -all  updmap.cfg',
              in the order returned by kpsewhich.

              In  any  case,  if  multiple updmap.cfg files are found, all the
              maps mentioned in all the updmap.cfg files are merged.

              Thus, if updmap.cfg files are present  in  all  trees,  and  the
              default  layout  is used as shipped with TeX Live on Debian, the
              following files are read, in the given order.

              TEXMFSYSVAR    /var/lib/texmf/web2c/updmap.cfg
              TEXMFLOCAL     /usr/local/share/texmf/web2c/updmap.cfg
              TEXMFDEBIAN    /usr/share/texmf/web2c/updmap.cfg
              TEXMFDIST      /usr/share/texlive/texmf-dist/web2c/updmap.cfg

              According to the actions, updmap might write to one of the given
              files or create a new updmap.cfg, described further below.

       Where changes are saved:

              If  config  files  are given on the command line, then the first
              one given will be used to save  any  changes  from  --setoption,
              --enable or --disable.  If the config files are taken from kpse-
              which output, then the algorithm is more complex:

              1)         If          $TEXMFCONFIG/web2c/updmap.cfg          or
              $TEXMFHOME/web2c/updmap.cfg  appears  in the list of used files,
              then the one listed first by kpsewhich --all (equivalently,  the
              one returned by kpsewhich updmap.cfg), is used.

              2) If neither of the above two are present and changes are made,
              a new config file is created in $TEXMFCONFIG/web2c/updmap.cfg.

              In general, the idea is that if  a  given  config  file  is  not
              writable, a higher-level one can be used.  That way, the distri-
              bution's settings can be overridden for system-wide using  TEXM-
              FLOCAL,  and  then system settings can be overridden again for a
              particular using using TEXMFHOME.

       Resolving multiple definitions of a font:

              If a font is defined in more than one map file, then the defini-
              tion coming from the first-listed updmap.cfg is used.  If a font
              is defined multiple times within the same map file, one is  cho-
              sen arbitrarily.  In both cases a warning is issued.

       Disabling maps:

              updmap.cfg  files with higher priority (listed earlier) can dis-
              able maps mentioned in lower priority (listed later)  updmap.cfg
              files by writing, e.g.,

              #! Map mapname.map

              or

              #! MixedMap mapname.map

              in the higher-priority updmap.cfg file.

              As an example, suppose you have a copy of MathTime Pro fonts and
              want to disable the Belleek version of the fonts; that is,  dis-
              able  the  map  belleek.map.  You can create the file $TEXMFCON-
              FIG/web2c/updmap.cfg with the content

       between updmap-sys and updmap.

       Other  locations  may  be used if you give them on the command line, or
       these trees don't exist, or you are not using the original TeX Live.

       To see the precise locations of the various files that will be read and
       written, give the -n option (or read the source).

EXAMPLES
       For  step-by-step  instructions  on making new fonts known to TeX, read
       http://tug.org/fonts/fontinstall.html.  For even  more  terse  instruc-
       tions, read the beginning of the main updmap.cfg.

FILES
       Configuration and input files:

       updmap.cfg
              Main  configuration  file.   In texmf-dist/web2c by default, but
              may be located elsewhere depending on your  distribution.   Each
              texmf tree read should have its own updmap.cfg.

       dvips35.map
              Map file for standard 35 PostScript fonts for use with dvips(1).

       pdftex35.map
              Map  file  for  standard  35  PostScript fonts for use with pdf-
              tex(1).

       ps2pk35.map
              Map file for standard 35 PostScript fonts for use with ps2pk(1).

       Output files:

       psfonts.map
              For dvips(1).  Same as psfonts_t1.map if option  dvipsPreferOut-
              line active, else as psfonts_pk.map.

       psfonts_pk.map
              For  dvips(1).   Without information from MixedMap files.  (Set-
              ting of dvipsPreferOutline ignored.)

       psfonts_t1.map
              For dvips(1).  With information from MixedMap  files.   (Setting
              of dvipsPreferOutline ignored.)

       download35.map
              For dvips(1).  Always downloads the standard 35 fonts.  (Setting
              of dvipsDownloadBase35 ignored.)

       builtin35.map
              For dvips(1).  Never downloads the standard 35 fonts.   (Setting
              of dvipsDownloadBase35 ignored.)

       pdftex.map

       Configuration files for dvips(1):

       config.builtin35
              Loads builtin35.map instead of psfonts.map.

       config.download35
              Loads download35.map instead of psfonts.map.

       config.outline
              Loads psfonts_t1.map instead of psfonts.map.

       config.pdf
              Loads  psfonts_t1.map  instead of psfonts.map and has additional
              optimizations for PDF generation.

       config.pk
              Loads psfonts_pk.map instead of psfonts.map.

       config.www
              Loads psfonts_t1.map instead of psfonts.map.  (For compatibility
              with old versions.)

       config.gstopk
              Loads psfonts_t1.map instead of psfonts.map.
