### How to install Latex winfonts in Linux

As unbelievable as it is, for a second time this year, I need to redo scientific publications prepared in Latex, in a way that they will fit the Windows-based journal/proceedings. Shame for physicists and physics as a whole. People simply don't value real quality these days.
So after some wine-emulations of Mathtype, now I have to make a document title "Times New Roman, 9pt, bold". Oh, well.
My research didn't lead to satisfying solution, so I decided to make the whole document in the Times font using \usepackage{pslatex} which seems to do the job. The change of the size was done by:
\fontsize{9pt}{11pt}\selectfont
Later I found this lovely instructions how to install winfonts under Linux, something which the README of the winfonts didn't inform me of.

2. unzip it to your local texmf tree $unzip winfonts.zip -d ~/texmf. 3. make font files recognized by TeX. $mkdir -p ~/texmf/fonts/TTF && cd ~/texmf/fonts/TTF && ln -s /usr/share/fonts/TTF
3. $mktexlsr 4.$updmap --enable Map winfonts.map
