Hi @siddhu1,

You can follow the below steps.

Also, you can get answers related to fonts installation from blog: 

https://blogs.sas.com/content/sgf/2020/03/20/how-to-debug-5-common-sas-software-font-issues/

 

To permanently install the font (run commands in compute node):

1. Stop all SAS services

2. For evidences you can run the below command to take list of already installed fonts.

<sas install path>/SASFoundation/9.4/sas -nodms -log ~/preinstall_SASFontsList.log

proc registry startat="\CORE\PRINTING\FREETYPE\FONTS" list levels=1;
run;

3. Open the SAS session with command: <sas install path>/SASFoundation/9.4/sas -nodms -log ~/fontinstall.log

4. Run below commands (run each in new line) -  fontfile command can have multiple entries together for different courier new font ttf files

proc fontreg msglevel=verbose mode=add usesashelp;

fontfile '<sashome path>/sashome/ReportFontsforClients/9.4/courbd.ttf' '<sashome path>/sashome/ReportFontsforClients/9.4/courbi.ttf' '<sashome path>/sashome/ReportFontsforClients/9.4/cour.ttf' '<sashome path>/sashome/ReportFontsforClients/9.4/couri.ttf';

run;
endsas;

5. Then run again the below command to take evidences post the installation.

<sas install path>/SASFoundation/9.4/sas -nodms -log ~/postinstall_SASFontsList.log

proc registry startat="\CORE\PRINTING\FREETYPE\FONTS" list levels=1;
run;
endsas;

 

Hope this helps.
