Convert Font Suitcase to TTF

Image
Sometimes clients send me fonts in Font Suitcase format, and  I'm suppose to include the fonts in their websites.

To convert the fonts to TTF, I use Fondu.
A set of programs to interconvert between mac font formats and pfb, ttf, otf and bdf files on unix. Fondu will read a series of mac files, check their resource forks and extract all font related items into seperate files.
Install Fondu (OSX) Download FonduOpen terminalChange directory to the dir that you extracted fondu interminal: ./configureterminal: maketerminal: sudo make install

e.g. fondu Futura.dfontDone.
Convert to Webfonts Upload the converted .ttf file to http://convertfonts.com/
