How to convert Bitmap Font to OpenType Bitmap Font

In Fedora 31, pango is upgraded to 1.44 and switch to use harfbuzz.

In order to continue to use bitmap font with pango, please use the fonttosfnt tool to convert the font.

Take the Terminus font as example

Steps

1. Install fonttosfnt from the below Fedora copr

2. Convert the font with fonttosfnt

$fonttosfnt -b -g 2 -m 1 -o terminusn.otb ../terminus-fonts/ter-*n.pcf.gz

$fonttosfnt -b -g 2 -m 1 -o terminusb.otb ../terminus-fonts/ter-*b.pcf.gz

3. remove the terminus-fonts package and install the terminusn.otb and terminusb.otb fonts
