ProcedureHow to Install Downloaded PostScript Fonts

  1. On the print server, become superuser or assume an equivalent role.

    Roles contain authorizations and privileged commands. For more information about roles, see Configuring RBAC (Task Map) in System Administration Guide: Security Services.

  2. Change directory to the /etc/lp/printers/printer-name directory.

    # cd /etc/lp/printers/printer-name

    The variable printer-name specifies the name of the printer on which you want to install downloaded PostScript fonts.

  3. Create the residentfonts file, if this file does not already exist.

    # touch residentfonts

    This file might not exist if you are adding permanently downloaded fonts for the first time.

  4. Edit the residentfonts file. Add all the printer-resident fonts and the fonts to be permanently downloaded.
