FontForge should do the job, though I've never managed to find the
proper way to use it (exact choice of options when converting from
one font format to another). i-Installer has an i-Package for it. It
needs X11 to be installed (optional when installing OS X). Once both
are installed, you may either:
- Launch FontForge from Terminal by typing:
- Launch FontForge from X11 by typing, in the xterm window:
- Add a new item to X11's Applications menu, with:
and then use this menu.
At install time, the TeX i-Package converts the PostScript Latin
Modern fonts included in teTeX to OpenType format (in /Library/Fonts/
Latin Modern/) for use in OS X GUI applications, which seems to
indicate the same conversion should be possible for the Fourier fonts
You might try to contact Michel Bovani, the author of the Fourier-GUT
fonts. His email address may be found at <http://www.gutenberg.eu.org/

Do you know this Calvin & Hobbes strip (that's Calvin & Hobbes
playing in a sandbox and chatting, I don't remember the exact
wording, I'll check at home):
- Calvin: I can't work except when I'm in the correct mood for it.
- Hobbes: What's this, then?
- Calvin: Last-minute panic!
Alas, too often do I experience the truth in this!
