This port tries to follow numerous  suggestions and HOWTOs posted on the
web  about  printing and  viewing  PostScript  files containing  Russian
characters (in KOI8 encoding, are there others?).
In installs the fonts taken from
into   their    own   ${PREFIX}/CyrPS   directory,   and    places   the
infonts.dir/fonts.scale there for your X-server's perusal.
If you  happen to have  ghostscript installed,  it will also  append its
Fontmap file to print/display with this fonts by default.
Note, however, that this will NOT make your PostScript printers print in
Russian, since they have their own PostScript interpreters built in. Use
`koify' to deal with those.
This  port  tries  to patch  the  GhostScript's  Fontmap
automaticly, so unless you have non-standard GhostScript
installation   (or   if    you   installed   GhostScript
afterwards), you should not have to do anything.
For   your  X-server   to  use   the  fonts,   you  have
to    add    the   ${PREFIX}/share/koi8r-ps    (usually,
/usr/local/share/koi8r-ps)  to  the server's  font-path.
Use ``xset  fp+'' to do  this for the  current X-session
and consult  your X-server's documentation to  make this
For gv  to use  the newly installed  KOI8 fonts,  it may
have  to start  GhostScript  with the  ``-dNOPLATFONTS''
option. One way  to ensure this is  to add -dNOPLATFONTS
to  the   GV.gsX11Device  resource  --  either   in  the
/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/app-defaults/GV,  or in  individual's
~/.Xdefaults. An individual user  can also put this into
his or her  ~/.gv file, by starting up  gv, choosing the
menu option  ``Ghostscript Options'' from  the ``State''
menu and typing in ``-dNOPLATFONTS'' into the ``Device''
This package will NOT by  itself help you print Cyrillic
on PostScript printers --  they use their own PostScript
engines  (not GhostScript).  The port  russian/koify may
help you with those.
