UPDATE-UPDMAP(8)            System Manager's Manual           UPDATE-UPDMAP(8)



NAME
       update-updmap        -       shell       script       to       generate
       /var/lib/texmf/web2c/updmap.cfg

SYNOPSIS
       update-updmap [options]

DESCRIPTION
       This manual page documents briefly  the  update-updmap  command.   This
       manual  page  was written for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution because
       the original script was designed for Debian packaging system.

       update-updmap     is     a      shell      script      to      generate
       /var/lib/texmf/web2c/updmap.cfg from files in /etc/texmf/updmap.d/*.cfg

       The  tetex-bin  provides 00updmap.cfg in /var/lib/texmf/web2c/updmap.d/
       and TeX related font packages 'foo' should provide its font  map  file,
       e.x.      foo.map,    in    /etc/texmf/dvips/    and    10foo.cfg    in
       /etc/texmf/updmap.d/ with contents  "Map  foo.map"  and  run   'update-
       updmap' in postinst.

       Note  a  filename should have an extension ".cfg" and it should contain
       "MixedMap foo.map" if "foo" is available  as  bitmap  and  as  outline.
       Then    an    appropriate    updmap.cfg    will    be    generated   in
       /var/lib/texmf/web2c/ and running "updmap" will generate an appropriate
       psfonts.map etc.

       Note  10foo.cfg  should  be  a  configuration  file  and  be renamed at
       "remove" to something like 10foo.bak  and  be  removed  at  "purge"  in
       postrm.

OPTIONS
       -v     Show verbose messages.
