Traditional Chinese Solaris User's Guide

Converting From BDF to PCF Format

Before Solaris applications can use a modified BDF file, it must be converted to a file in PCF format. It must then be replaced in the $OPENWINHOME/lib/locale/zh_TW/fonts directory as follows:

system% bdftopcf -o myfont14.pcf myfont14.bdf 

The -o option enables the matrix encoding used for Asian PCF font files. For more information, see the bdftopcf(1) and mkfontdir(1) man pages.
