Converting a Type-1 font to TrueType under Linux

It’s pretty simple, actually. You need fontforge, which should be just an urpmi/yum/apt away.

Then you do run:

$ fontforge -script -
> Open("your-font.pfb");
> Generate("your-font.ttf");
> Quit(0);

Finish input with Ctrl-D … that’s it!

Shamlessly stolen from with thanks.
