Hello, I'd like to generate plots noninteractively (e.g., from a makefile, possibly on a remote machine). While my math kernel will definitely produce and export EPS files (e.g., pl = Plot[...]; Export[fname, pl, "EPS"];), some fonts are apparently not available through the kernel and are handled by the front end. So I have two questions: (1) can the kernel be made aware of the other fonts that the front end uses, or (2) can the front end be run *noninteractively* to produce and export plots, or Any thoughts would be much appreciated!
