> This patch enables the PostScript driver to read font metrics directly
> from TrueType font files with FreeType 2.  It looks for font files in
> directories listed in the [TrueType Font Directories] section of the
> wine config file.  For example:
>     [TrueType Font Directories]
>     "dir0" = "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/TrueType"
>     "dir1" = "/usr/share/fonts/default/TrueType"
>     etc.
> It does not embed the fonts into its output.  Ghostscript users can
> install their TrueType fonts in Ghostscript (with their Fontmap file or
> the GS_FONTPATH environment variable); users printing to PostScript
> printers will have to convert their fonts to Type 1 or Type 42 format
> and use an external program to add them to the print jobs.


Why don't you add this text to documentation/printing?
