kpfonts-otf package


kpfonts-otf’ is meant as a replacement, for LuaLaTeX and XeLaTeX users,of Christophe Caignaert’s kpfonts’ package. Christophe’s Type1 fonts havebeen converted to OpenType using fontforge and Adobe's AFDKO bundle. The package is still experimental, bug reports and suggestions are welcome.


  • the font/ directory holds 23 OpenType fonts (16 for text and 5 for math);
  • the tex/ directory holds the style file kpfonts-otf.sty and fontspec configuration files;
  • the doc/ directory holds documentation in English and French and a table of available Math symbols comparing kpfonts-otf to LatinModern, STIXTwo, Erewhon, GyrePagella and DejaVu.


This package is meant to be installed automatically by Live, Mik, etc. Otherwise, kpfonts-otf’ can be installed under TEXMFHOME or TEXMFLOCAL, f.i. alls fonts (fonts/.otf files) in directory texmf-local/fonts/opentype/public/kpfonts-otf/

  • style and fontspec files (tex/kpfonts-otf.sty and tex/.fontspec) in directory texmf-local/tex/latex/kpfonts-otf/
  • documentation (from doc/ directory) in texmf-local/doc/fonts/public/kpfonts-otf/

Don't forget to rebuild the file database (mktexlsr or so) if you install under TEXMFLOCAL.

Finally, you may want to make the system font database aware of the kpfonts-otf’ fonts (fontconfig under Linux).
