<application>Ghostscript</application>
<application>Ghostscript</application> references a font via its <filename>Fontmap</filename>. This must be modified in a similar way to the <application>X11</application> <filename>fonts.dir</filename>. <application>Ghostscript</application> can use either the <filename>.pfa</filename> or the <filename>.pfb</filename> format fonts. Using the font from the previous example, here is how to use it with <application>Ghostscript</application>:
<application>Groff</application>
<application>Povray</application>
<application>X11</application>
<application>X11</application> can use either the <filename>.pfa</filename> or the <filename>.pfb</filename> format fonts. The <application>X11</application> fonts are located in various subdirectories under <filename>/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts</filename>. Each font file is cross referenced to its <application>X11</application> name by the contents of <filename>fonts.dir</filename> in each directory.
<application>xfstt</application> is another font server for <application>X11</application>, available under <uri xlink:href="ftp://sunsite.unc.edu/pub/Linux/X11/fonts/">ftp://sunsite.unc.edu/pub/Linux/X11/fonts/</uri>.
