  • @egreg I did. I just did not know that "T2A encoding" means "Cyrillic". – v_2e Aug 22 '13 at 16:43
  • I added the word to the title. Can we close this question as duplicate? – egreg Aug 22 '13 at 16:46
  • Yes, I think we can. This question is not going to be deleted, but just closed, am I right? – v_2e Aug 22 '13 at 16:49
  • No, it won't be deleted. People finding it will be pointed to the other one. – egreg Aug 22 '13 at 16:54

I don't have a general solution which works for all font types supported by TeX. Here's a script which searches a given directory for OpenType files and displays the ones supporting the Cyrillic script. It uses otfinfo (otfinfo - man page)


# Finds fonts that support a particular script
# Usage: font-script-search <directory>


find "$1" -type f -name "*.otf" |
  while read file; do
    if otfinfo --scripts "$file" 2>/dev/null | grep "$script" >/dev/null; then
      otfinfo --postscript-name "$file"
  done | sort

exit 0
