But I add also support files for other free chess fonts. On the website the fonts are all declared to be free, and the maintainer of the site, Eric Bentzen, said that he didn't object if I put the converted fonts on CTAN. But I couldn't contact all the authors so I decided to upload only a part of the pfb. For the other you must do the conversion yourself. The needed ttf2pt1 command is ttf2pt1 -b ***.ttf chess-***-raw Please look in the map-files for the correct output name. If you want to use the fonts for a commercial project, please check that no author objects. Other available chessfonts are skak (Metafont) and skaknew (Type1) which you can find on CTAN. It is quite possible that the fonts or their metrics (tfm) need to be adjusted. I didn't do anything to improve quality (I wouldn't have been able, I don't have an application to fiddle with fonts, and I don't have the skill anyway). If you have the skill and the possibilities to correct possible errors I would be quite happy if you sent my the corrected files at skak <at> nililand <dot> de. CONTENTS AND INSTALLATION AND DOCUMENTATION - Readme (this file) - a lot of tfm-files: put them e.g. in fonts/tfm/chess/enpassant - a lot of pfb-files: put them in fonts/type1/chess/enpassant - a lot of afm-files: put them in fonts/afm/chess/enpassant - a lot of enc-files: put them in fonts/enc/chess/enpassant - a lot of .fd-files: put them in tex/latex/chessfss/enpassant - and a map-file which should go somewhere in fonts/map and which you should add to your .map-files with e.g. updmap. The lucena, the alphadia and the skaknew fonts has special mask chars to color the background of a char. Please read the documentation of chessfss (at least version 1.2) to learn how to use. The documentation of chessfss shows how to use the fonts. chessfonts_gallery.pdf (also part of chessfss) shows the look of the fonts. ATTENTION 1. The .tfm of the lucena font has been renamed (to reflect the mask-chars needed for color support), so make sure that you are using the new fd-file and not an old chessfss.cfg. 2. If something doesn't work as expected please make sure before sending a bug report if it isn't the fault of older versions of chessfss.cfg, *.enc-files, *enc.def-files and *.fd-files, tfm/pk etc. LIST OF FONTS Name Author alfonso Armando H.

enpassant – Enpassant chess font support
The package contains the necessary files to use free chess fonts from the En passant site (or on CTAN), with (La)TeX. For some of the fonts the pfb-file is also part of the package, or is available elsewhere on CTAN. For others the pfb must be made from the original ttf from the enpassant site. Instructions about the conversion and the use of the font can be found in the documentation of chessfss.
