Mountain Lion USB bootable

Inside your .DMG file you should have “Install OS X Mountain Lion” app, right click on it and press “Show package contents“, somewhere  inside you should have “InstallESD.dmg” package. This is the package (not the image) that content image disk, be careful! The package named Mac OS X Install ESD is the right one that you have to copy in your key using disk utility

.pfb and .pfm font on OSX

Officially OSX doesn’t support pfb and pfm fonts, however, adobe applications like for example Illustrator allow to use this font. To use this font you must place the font file insider the folder

/Library/Application Support/Adobe/fonts

this folder usually doesn’t exist and you have to create it!
