Installing Fonts for Oracle Reports in UNIX

This step-by-step tutorial makes use of the free IDAutomation Code 128 barcode font demo package.

Note: Use of this pll, requires a Developer License or above.

1.  Install the barcode font on UNIX. This is useful to view the reports generated in the previewer.

	a.  Copy the IDAutomationC128M.pfa file included in the download to the following directory
	 /usr/lib/X11/fonts/type1
	Note: the user's font path may be different).
	
	b.  Make the necessary changes to the fonts.dir file. Note: Make sure to make a backup of 
	this file before changing it. There are two ways to do this:
	
		1.  Run the executable mkfontsdir. This will update the fonts.dir file with the new 
		barcode fonts installed into the directory. View the file and make sure the fonts 
		are included. If the fonts are not included, use the next method.
		
		2.  Modify the fonts.dir file manually by either incrementing the number on the 
		first line of the file by six (the number represents the number of fonts found 
		in the file) or by adding the following lines to the file:
IDAutomationC128M.pfa -Type1-IDAutomationC128M-medium-r-normal-0-0-0-0-p-0-iso8859-1

c.  Save and exit the file 
	
	d.  Run the following command so openwin will rehash with the new font: 
xset fp rehash
	
2.  Update the Oracle Files - Reports used the following files to determine how to use the fonts.

	a.  FTP the IDAutomationC128M.afm file to the /$ORACLE_HOME/guicommon6/tk60/admin/AFM/ as 
	ASCII, not BINARY
	
	b.  Rename the file on the unix machine to IDAutomationC128M with no afm extension
	(eg. IDAutomationC128M.afm = IDAutomationC128M) Note: This is case sensitive.
	
	c.  Open each file and modify the FontName, FullName and Family Name to be the same as 
	the filename. (eg. FontName IDAutomationC128M)
	
	d.  Make sure a printer is defined in the uiprint.txt file in 
$ORACLE_HOME/guicommon6/tk60/admin/. If no printer is defined, add a line at the end of 
	the file with the following format: 

printername:Postscript:postscript_version:printer_description:printer_definition_file:
(eg. canon:Postscript:2:Canon Printer:canon.ppd:)
	
	e.  Edit the printer definition file from step d) to include the barcode fonts. This file 
	is found in $ORACLE_HOME/guicommon6/tk60/admin/PPD. Add the following lines in the font 
	information section of the file. See sample PPD file in Appendix B.
    	*Font IDAutomationC128M: Standard "(00.1001)" Standard ROM
    
	f.  Modify the Oracle font alias file, uifont.ali, found in 
$ORACLE_HOME/guicommon6/tk60/admin 

1.  Map a font from the list provided in the file to an installed font.
		Note: Choose a font that is not used. Eg. Mapping the font called clean to barcode 
IDAutomationC128M See Appendix A for a sample uifont.ali file.
		 
		2.  (Optional) A utility may be used to verify if the font file has the correct 
		syntax. Run ORACLE_HOME/bin/fontchk60.
		
3.  Generating and distributing the report with the barcode font.

	a.  Generate a report to a postscript file. (eg. File generated=myreport.ps)
	
	b.  Prepend the *.pfa file to the beginning of the file. 
	(eg. cat IDAutomationC128M.pfa myreport.ps = myreport_with_barcode_font.ps)
	
	c.  (Optional) Convert the file to pdf.
	(eg. ps2pdf myreport_with_barcode_font.ps). 
	A new file with a .pdf extension will be created.
	
	d.  Send new pdf or ps file to the printer or any other computer for viewing.

Appendix A Sample uifont.ali file
NOTE : This sample assumes the user is using a postscript printer, so the postscript section has the font mapping.
Please add the lines to the section that applies to the user's printer.

# DESCRIPTION:
#
# Each line is of the form:
#
#   <Face>.<Size>.<Style>.<Weight>.<Width>.<CharSet> = \
#           <Face>.<Size>.<Style>.<Weight>.<Width>.<CharSet> #
# The <Face> must be the name (string/identifier) of a font face. The
# <Style>, <Weight>, <Width>, and <CharSet> may either be a numeric
# value or a predefined identifier/string. For example, both US7ASCII
# and 1 are valid <CharSet> values, and refer to the same character set.
# The <Size> dimension must be an explicit size, in points.
#
# The following is a list of recognized names and their numeric
# equivalents:
#
#   Styles        Numeric value
#    Plain           0
#    Italic           1
#    Oblique          2
#    Underline         4
#    Outline          8
#    Shadow          16
#    Inverted         32
#    Overstrike        64
#    Blink          128
#
#   Weights        Numeric value
#    Ultralight         1
#    Extralight         2
#    Light           3
#    Demilight         4
#    Medium           5
#    Demibold          6
#    Bold            7
#    Extrabold         8
#    Ultrabold         9
#
#   Widths        Numeric value
#    Ultradense         1
#    Extradense         2
#    Dense           3
#    Semidense         4
#    Normal           5
#    Semiexpand         6
#    Expand           7
#    Extraexpand        8
#    Ultraexpand        9
#
# Styles may be combined; the user can use plus ("+") to delimit parts of a
# style. For example,
#
#    Arial..Italic+Overstrike = Helvetica.12.Italic.Bold
#
# are equivalent, and either one will map any Arial that has both Italic
# and Overstrike styles to a 12-point, bold, italic Helvetica font.
#
# All strings are case-insensitive in mapping. Font faces are likely to
# be case-sensitive on lookup, depending on the platform and surface, so
# care should be taken with names used on the right-hand side; but they
# will be mapped case-insensitively.
#
# See the user's platform documentation for a list of all supported character
# sets, and available fonts.
#
#
# BUGS:
#  o Should accept a RHS ratio (e.g., "Helv = Arial.2/3").

IDAutomation fully supports IDAutomation's fonts, ensuring they are created according to the standards for the symbology and type of font. However, IDAutomation does not have experience with Oracle or UNIX. Because installation of fonts are OS specific, all procedures for installing fonts on the UNIX platform should be included in the documentation of the appropriate platform.

IDAutomation has 2 installation instruction documents to review that may help as a guide:

  1. Font Installation on UNIX and Other Systems
  2. Oracle Reports Barcode FAQ & Tutorial

The above installation examples were provided by Regimbal Solutions, a consulting company who also wrote the IDAutomation.pll file.
