Program Installation For Unix



unix


Java Bits -

To use the application, you will first need to install a Java Virtual Machine version 1.5 or later (1.6 preferred).

Font Bits -

The application will try to automatically load it's fonts. If that is not successful, you will need to add them yourself -

You will find two Hebrew Fonts as part of the download (in the "Fonts" directory). FoundationHebrew (FoundationHebrew.pfa and FOUNHEBR.TTF), which is the default printed script, and FoundationHebrewScript (FoundationHebrewScript.pfa and FOUNHEBS.TTF) which is cursive. Choose either the postscript versions (pfa) or the Windows True Type versions (but not both). The postscript is recommended, but most Linux distributions can handle ttf now.

The *.pfa are both type 1 postscript fonts, and should be compatible with any X window system (although you may have to rename them *.ps for other non Linux system's install scripts to recognise them). If you do use the Postscript versions, you will have to alter the -Dfoundationstone.hebrew.font.offset="f000" setting in foundationStone.sh to be: -Dfoundationstone.hebrew.font.offset="0000". Otherwise you shouldn't have to adjust what is in foundationStone.sh at all.

Install the fonts according to the convention on your platform. Typically this means putting them into /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/Type1/ and manually updating the fonts.dir (and perhaps fonts.scale) file. For example, under Linux -

foundationhebrew.pfa -unknown-foundationhebrew-medium-r-normal--0-0-0-0-p-0-adobe-fontspecific
foundationhebrewscript.pfa -unknown-foundationhebrewscript-medium-r-normal--0-0-0-0-p-0-adobe-fontspecific

Verify that the fonts are now available to X programs, and that the capitalisation matches with that in FoundationStone's preferences panel - font names are case sensitive.

Running FoundationStone -

To run the application:
run ./foundationStone.sh from the application directory.

If you still have trouble, read the troubleshooting section.
