+# Sample xpdfrc file
+# The Xpdf tools look for a config file in two places:
+# 1. ~/.xpdfrc
+# 2. in a system-wide directory, typically /usr/local/etc/xpdfrc
+# This sample config file demonstrates some of the more common
+# configuration options.  Everything here is commented out.  You
+# should edit things (especially the file/directory paths, since
+# they'll likely be different on your system), and uncomment whichever
+# options you want to use.  For complete details on config file syntax
+# and available options, please see the xpdfrc(5) man page.
+# Also, the Xpdf language support packages each include a set of
+# options to be added to the xpdfrc file.
+#----- display fonts
+# These map the Base-14 fonts to the Type 1 fonts that ship with
+# ghostscript.  You'll almost certainly want to use something like
+# this, but you'll need to adjust this to point to wherever
+# ghostscript is installed on your system.  (But if the fonts are
+# installed in a "standard" location, xpdf will find them
+# automatically.)
