Converting postscript to pdf (font problem)
Posted on 2013-06-17
I am using ghoscript to convert a postscript file to pdf in windows. Here is my command line:
gswin32c.exe -sFONTPATH=c:\windows\fonts -sDEVICE=pdfwrite -sOutputFile=C:\Data\FileUpload\tax.pdf C:\Data\FileUpload\tax.ps
The problem that I'm finding is that ghostscript always wants to substitute the Helvetica font in the .ps file to ArialMT.
I've installed the Helvetica font on my machine, so I know it is there, but I cannot figure out how to prevent ghostscript from substituting the font.
I read something about a fontmap file but cannot see/figure it out exactly.
