I am working on some research related to FreeType2 Driver modules. I started my study by reading the Windows font Driver module (Because of its simplicity compared to TrueType and Type1). This Driver module works when a file with format
.FON is inputed from client application.
So, as a first step I want to install some windows font of extension
.FNT or.FON. After searching for quite a long time I figured out that
.FNT is not used any more in windows so I can't download it.
.FON format is used in windows 10 its a raster type font. So I decided to copy this file (Fro windows fonts folder) to my
/usr/share/FON/ directory. It copied successfully and its icon was like an executable file in Linux but when I used fontconfig for updating with fc-cache and than listing with fc-list I couldn't see that.
So, is there a way I can install them and test my Windows Driver module? I know how to install normal
.ttf fonts and use them, I am asking about .FON,
.FNT format of windows fonts.
