[groff] Termux Android app and Groff

Dear Groff-users

I've been running Linux on my smartphone / tablet for a long time and I've
used all sorts of variants of Linux on Android.

Now I have started to use Termux which is an android app that gives the
user a virtually full Linux system from an ordinary Android terminal.
Really good app, but it doesn't have Groff among the default packages.
However, you can install Groff by adding a package archive called

its-pointless made by the user


Once this repo is added one can just install groff

dpk install groff

Groff works fine, but there is a problem.  Groff does not seem to have
access to normal fonts I am used to use in Groff.

As far as I can see, I have only one basic font family available.

I do not know if there is a font-package missing that I can simply install
to get the usual groff basic fonts or how to access the solution of this

It would be obvious to write to the person who made its-pointless repo, but
I cannot find a way to contact him so now I try to write to the Groff-group
to hear if some of you can help me on the way.

 Yours sincerely
