Description

I have TeXLive 2008 on my Linux (Ubuntu 8.4) [full]. How can I use XeTex to write my document with TrueType Fonts ?
I'm sorry that I don't write in Vietnamese, because I have not a tool, to write Vietnamese.
Thanks

Don't worry, guy. You can use English here, because our engine supports many languages.

dduyhai has an excellent example about XeTeX at http://viettug.org/forum/3917. You may follow these steps:

  1. download the source: http://viettug.org/code/99f6fee634/plain and move the file to xetex_example.tex
  2. execute from your terminal/console: xelatex xetex_example.tex
  3. the result of this compiling likes this xetex.pdf
  4. note: You may install some windows fonts on your Ubuntu system :)

Hope this helps.

    I have some windows Fonts in my Ubuntu (in the folder ~/.font). So how can I map them in TeX System, or that is not necessary.

    After copying font files to ~/.fonts, run fc-cache program. Then use some external programs to get the font's name. I use gfontview that's quite silly :P. For e.g,

    font file font name (used in XeTeX)
    vhtimebi.ttf .VnTimeH Bold Italic
    vmysti.ttf VNI-Mysti

    Good luck.

      Thanks, I have tried it, that works very well. Now I can use ttf from Windows in my Latex document.
