The devpdf NR font is looked for with the following names:-


And they are searched for in any of the search paths specified when you run 
the command "gs -h". On my system these are:-

Search path:
   /home/derij/.fonts : /usr/share/ghostscript/9.26/Resource/Init :
   /usr/share/ghostscript/9.26/lib :
   /usr/share/ghostscript/9.26/Resource/Font :
   /usr/share/ghostscript/fonts : /usr/share/fonts/default/ghostscript :
   /usr/share/fonts/default/type1 : /usr/share/ghostscript/fonts :
   /usr/share/ghostscript/9.26/Resource : /usr/share/ghostscript/Resource :
   /usr/share/ghostscript/CIDFont : /usr/share/fonts/ttf :
   /usr/share/fonts/type1 : /usr/share/fonts/default/Type1

In ubuntu this can be satisfied by installing the package "libgs9-common". 
This must be present when the packager builds groff from source for the fonts 
in devpdf to match devps, and then marked as a dependency if the full groff is 

During building groff the program is the program which 
populates the devpdf font directory, but it is not really designed to run 
standalone, a shame, because if you install a different version of these 
ghostscript fonts they seem to move to a different directory, and possibly a 
slightly different name, so the download file in devpdf would need amendment.
