Generating Fonts from Source

The [http://packages.debian.org/fontforge fontforge] is an editor for outline and bitmap fonts that generates all kinds of fonts. It is also scriptable and has an addon tool [http://packages.debian.org/xgridfit xgridfit] for hinting. The following fonts are built from sfd (found using apt-cache rdepends fontforge):

- [http://packages.debian.org/ttf-junicode ttf-junicode]

- [http://packages.debian.org/ttf-beteckna beteckna]

- [http://packages.debian.org/ttf-essays1743 essays1743]

- [http://packages.debian.org/ttf-atarismall ttf-atarismall]

- [http://packages.debian.org/ttf-breip ttf-breip]

I created some script to create bold, italic, and condensed typefaces out of sfd fonts:
