    Converting OS X fonts to regular format?


    I need to convert OS X apps to OTF or TTF. Something usable in both Linux and Windows.

    Is there any way to do this via the command line, or any app for this?

    Nice... the reading I did on FontForge said it wouldn't work with the fonts I had but after doing more reading, I think it will.

    The info must have been about a past version of the app.

    On another note: It seems like Fondu would have to be run on a Mac for the files to be converted if they were the fork type fonts... right?
