A basic set of free PostScript fonts

This package includes free Type1 fonts for the following font families: Free Times, Free Helvetian, Free Helvetian Condensed, Free Courier, Free Avant Garde, Free Paladin, Free Schoolbook, Free Bookman and Free Chancery.

These fonts cover the Latin1 and Latin2 character sets and partially the most popular Cyrillic character sets.

The fonts look like the fonts in the Adobe basic set of PostScript fonts, but the font names are customized to avoid any trademark infringements.

Package version:4.12+nmu2


Cyrillized free URW fonts.

These fonts were made from the free URW fonts distributed with ghostcript.
There are NO changes in the latin part of them (I hope).
Cyrillic glyphs were added by copying suitable latin ones
and painting oulines of unique cyrillic glyphs in same style as the others.
For all modification pfaedit was used.
The license for result is (of course) same as for original fonts,


The names of the fonts in this package have been changed.  The
upstream uses the same names as the fonts in the package gsfonts.  If
I used the same names this would make imposible to use together both
packages.  So when I created the Debian packages I decided to use
other names, namely the names used by Adobe.

Afterwards I was pointed that am not allowed to use these names as
they are trademarks


Nimbus Sans L Regular, Nimbus Mono L Regular, Nimbus Mono L Oblique
all come from a more recent version of the cyrillic URW fonts.

The hints on Nimbus Sans Regular have been modified in the
following ways:

25 June 2002

 - Added ghost hint to the top of 4 to keep it from being
   taller than the other digits.
 - Reduced the width of the left stem hint for H to 83
   (probably no real differences
