SYNOPSIS

groff -F/usr/local/share/utopia

DESCRIPTION

The print/utopia port installs the files needed to use the PostScript Type 1 version of the Adobe Utopia typeface with GNU Troff, as it is configured in a FreeBSD basic install.

USAGE

The port installs the fonts and support files in /usr/local/share/utopia. To get Groff to see the fonts, one must either employ that program’s -F option to specify this directory, or one must set the GROFF_FONT_PATH environment variable.

The fonts are named in Groff as follows.

Groff Font Name      Font
UR      Utopia Roman
UI      Utopia Italic
UB      Utopia Bold
UBI      Utopia Bold Italic
 

One may employ the ".fam U" command to set the current family to Utopia.

LICENSE

The fonts are released under a royalty-free licence, a copy of which may be found in
/usr/local/share/utopia/devps/LICENSE

Adobe Utopia was originally designed by Robert Slimbach and released commercially by Adobe Systems Incorporated in 1989. In 1992, Adobe contributed the typeface to the X Consortium for distribution with the X Window System, under a license allowing redistribution without fee. In 2006, Adobe re-licensed the Type 1 versions to the TeX Users Group under an expanded license clarifying the terms under which modified versions may be distributed, and granting the right to sub-license. TUG in turn sub-licensed all their rights to the typeface to any and all interested parties.

Note that this license applies only to the original PostScript Type 1 versions of Adobe Utopia. Adobe has since released a new commercial version of Utopia in OpenType format, to which this license does not apply.
