[Tex/LaTex] Which fonts are at the disposal with pdfLaTeX without having to resort to manual installation of them


Apparently, installing fonts manually (by converting them to fd files and so on) on LaTeX is a bit of a hassle. But still, I would like to be able to use fonts other than the standard Computer Modern (although it is a nice font).

So what fonts can I use without having to install them manually? By this I mean, which fonts are installed by standard, and which fonts can I access by including a package?

Have a look on the LaTeX Font Catalogue and also the fonts directory on CTAN for a list of available fonts. Many of them can be loaded like packages. I only have experience with cm-super and lmodern.
