Is it possible to put \pdfpkresolution=250 ?

The only possible values I can assign are 300 and 100 but not any number between them.

\documentclass[12pt]{article}
\pdfmapfile{-pdftex.map}
\pdfpkresolution=250

\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[spanish]{babel}
\usepackage{amsmath}
\usepackage{amsfonts}
\usepackage{amssymb}

\begin{document}

$\left \{ N\ |\ N\trianglelefteq G \right \}$

\end{document}
  • What is the purpose of the minus sign in -pdftex.map? Without it an arbitrary resolution appears to work for me. – Pippip19 Feb 11 at 20:32
  • With the minus sign I obtain fuzzy font, that's what I want. And with \pdfpkresolution=250 I'd like to reduce the resolution of the font. – El_Bastaix Feb 11 at 20:37

There are no available modes for 250 dpi; there are some for 240dpi, for instance canonlbp. You need to set both the resolution and the mode; since you want to get an awful output, I guess that 10 dpi difference is not relevant.

\documentclass[12pt]{article}
\pdfmapfile{-pdftex.map}
\pdfpkresolution=240
\pdfpkmode{canonlbp}

\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[spanish]{babel}
\usepackage{amsmath}
\usepackage{amsfonts}
\usepackage{amssymb}

\begin{document}

$\left \{ N\ |\ N\trianglelefteq G \right \}$

\end{document}

The list of available modes is available in modes.mf, which you can look at with

less $(kpsewhich modes.mf)
