# XeLaTeX and 10x20 font

In Emacs I use the 10x20 font because it has a great support for Unicode symbols. I tried to use this font with xelatex using something like

\documentclass[10pt]{book}
\usepackage{fontspec}

\setmonofont{10x20}

\begin{document}
\texttt{Testing the mono font.}
\end{document}


but I got the following error:

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
!
! fontspec error: "font-not-found"
!
! The font "10x20" cannot be found.
!
! See the fontspec documentation for further information.
!
! For immediate help type H <return>.
!...............................................


I know I should use the font name with \setmonofont, but the only information I have is that 10x20 is a short name for -Misc-Fixed-Medium-R-Normal--20-200-75-75-C-100-ISO10646-1.

Can I use the 10x20 font with xelatex?

This looks like an X bitmap font, XeTeX does not support bitmap fonts (apart from MetaFont bitmaps). –  Khaled Hosny Dec 6 '12 at 15:55
without some sort of conversion, i don't think there's a chance of using the font with xetex. (i did a bit of a search, and all fonts i found, whose name includes "10x20", are x11 bitmap fonts ... which would seem to confirm khaled hosny's hypothesis.) –  wasteofspace Dec 6 '12 at 17:45
Thanks. I will see if I can use some sort of conversion for using the font. –  asr Dec 6 '12 at 20:55
@AndrésSicard-Ramírez You may try FreeMono that has a wide coverage of Unicode. –  egreg Apr 2 '13 at 10:27
