Hi there,

I try to use LetterGothic from URW as the default tt font in texinfo. It
almost works, except for the single quote (quoteright?) in @code{'}. The
symbol is missing in the output pdf file. The log file said that:

Missing character: There is no
   in font ulgb8r!

The font is installed from

The setting for the font in texinfo is:
\font\texttt=ulgb8r at 10pt %Letter Gothic-Bold
\font\textttsl=ulgbi8r at 10pt %Letter Gothic-BoldItalic

Is it possible to use this font in texinfo?

Any suggestion is really appreciated.


It seems that the problem caused by

@codequoteundirected on

if it set to off, the quoteright could be displayed.

I think I have been able to install the font using a mixture of the
instructions at your link and at,
but I don't see how to get the output in the font.  I tried

\input texinfo

X@code{aaaa 'bbbbbb}X

\font\texttt=ulgb8r at 10pt %Letter Gothic-Bold
\font\textttsl=ulgbi8r at 10pt %Letter Gothic-BoldItalic
@end tex

X@code{aaaa 'bbbbbb}X


but both lines are in the same font.  I managed to get a display of the
font using "pdfetex testfont".  See attached file.  The straight
apostrophe seems to be located at position '037, it's just a question of
how to get it.

Thank you very much for the clue of displaying the font table.

I get the correct output by redefining \codequoteright. The original definition (\char'15) is based on cmtt.

@end tex

Thanks again.
