PDF files, known for being viewable on most platforms, are a popular medium for distributing Bangla files over the Internet. Another use of PDF and Postscript files in the UNIX world is for printing. While PDF files can be created with various applications, this text is an attempt to describe the process of PDF creation using the free software KWord and ttf2pt1. The fonts used in this process are the Bijoy fonts included in the Bijoy2000 package. The keyboard layout for typing in Bangla is also Bijoy (the typing method of ligatures or compound characters is slightly different from the original one).
