Instructions

  1. If this is not done, install the Saxon-B XSLT Processor.
  2. If this is not done, install FontForge. Choose version 20120731 if you can, if not 20161112 or above.
  3. Download the tar file.
  4. You can also download its asc signature to test his validity:
    gpg --verify AghjaV2_*.tar.xz.asc AghjaV2_*.tar.xz
  5. Extract the tar file.
  6. The "Aghja.V2" main directory contains xslt files, scripts and other stuff. It should not be changed. The "source" subdirectory contains what you need to customize: font glyphs and two xml files.
  7. Validate the installation.
    1. Open a terminal.
    2. Change the directory to Aghja.V2
    3. Run ./genfont.sh (Directories "target" and "temp" are created).
    4. Run ./gencalt.sh
    5. Run ./genglyphs.sh (Be patient...).
    6. Run ./gensfd.sh (overlap errors can be ignored for now).
    7. Run ./genanchors.sh
    8. Run ./genotf.sh
    9. You should find the files "AghjaSource.sfd", "Aghja.sfd" et "Aghja.otf" in the "target" directory. The letters of the fonts do not connect: this is normal at this point.
  8. Now go to the detailed documentation of the site.
