# Are the Lido STF font installation instructions up-to-date?

The Czech TUG homepage has instructions and files to install the Lido STF fonts here. I don't know much about how fonts work in TeX, and the files have a modification date of 2001, so I'd like to ask:

1. Are these instructions up-to-date and correct? If not, please provide corrections.
2. Do I need to install the OFS package? This is unclear for me from the instructions.
3. How do I invoke the font in my documents?

(I know I can just use XeTeX, but it's sometimes fun to do things like this. I'm using MiKTeX 2.9.)

Here is a summary in case the link breaks.

1. Unpack the .tgz archive.
2. Insert the following line into texmf/dvips/config/config.ps:

p +slido.map

3. Insert the following line into texmf/pdftex/config/pdftex.cfg:

map +slido.map

4. In texmf/web2c/mktex.cnf, delete fontmaps from the line setting MT-FEATURES.

5. Run texhash.

What TeX distribution are you using? –  egreg Jun 20 '13 at 10:26
@egreg MiKTeX 2.9. –  marczellm Jun 20 '13 at 10:28
No don't change config.ps or pdftex.cfg. Maps are added via updmap/initexmf docs.miktex.org/2.9/manual/advanced.html#psfonts –  Ulrike Fischer Jun 20 '13 at 10:57

## Correct installation instructions for MiKTeX

1. Unpack the .tgz archive into your texmf tree.
2. In the command line run initexmf --edit-config-file updmap
3. A text file appears; enter Map slido.map (as the last line probably, the file was empty in my case, except a comment.) Save and close the file.
4. Run texhash.
5. Run initexmf --mkmaps.

(You may have to run all command line stuff as administrator, depending on whether you saved the files to a global texmf tree ("common root directory") or a local (user) one. All MiKTeX command line utils have the --admin option.)

In a LaTeX document you can now enable the font globally with

\renewcommand{\rmdefault}{sld}


or locally with

\fontfamily{sld}\selectfont


The OFS package is not needed for basic usage of the font, but the homepage recommends installing it. It is needed if you want to \usepackage{slido} or \input slido because the provided .sty and .tex files use OFS macros.

Here's a MWE:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage{blindtext}
\renewcommand{\rmdefault}{sld}

\begin{document}
\blinddocument
éáűőúöüóí
\textbf{öüóőú \textit{éáűí}}
\end{document}
