Description : X11 support for the Latin Modern fonts
The Latin Modern fonts, also known as "lm fonts", are a set of
scalable fonts in PostScript Type 1 format. They are based on the
PostScript Type 1 version of the Computer Modern fonts and contain
many additional characters (mostly accented ones).
This package does not contain any font itself but performs the
necessary steps to make the Latin Modern fonts available to the
X Window System. This makes it possible to use them as screen fonts.
I am splitting the package for what I suppose is the reason why
gsfonts-x11 is separate from gsfonts, i.e., to avoid the dependency on
xutils for the people who don't want to use the font with X (and
presumably don't have X installed).
