And for PK fonts you can do the following:

in Terminal.app

sudo texconfig <return>

your password, and then when ``press return to continue...'' <return>

This takes you to the TeX setup utility. Now choose

MODE         default metafont mode and resolution <return>

This now takes you to a list of printers. Choose one with the resolution you
want. For me, the best is

linotzzh  Linotype Linotronic 300 (2540dpi) <return>

And then exit the setup utility.

Best regards,
