Is there any way to get Verdana work with GhostScript on Linux?
And one question about UTF8

Hello guys,

I have Verdana.ttf font which is free. I wonder, how can I make it work with GS on Linux? Should I convert it?

Also, I've tried to use ImageMagick on Linux server with GhostScript to put text watermark on images. But it work incorrectly with international characters like Russian, Chinese, French etc. I wonder how can I make it work in UTF8?

Ghostscript supports ttf, and most distros has a tool for installing fonts (so does KDE). I think all you need do is install the font and it will work.

If you are using ImageMagick from the command line, then try -encoding Unicode. I do not know which Unicode encoding it expects thugh!

Thanks. I will try UTF-8 tip.

I wonder, how can I install ttf font in command line? I do not have KDE or Gnome installed on my server.

I've tried -encoding Unicode, but it didn't work for me.

Also, could someone answer my question about how to add TTF font with command line if I do not have KDE or Gnome installed?
