Bash script - Print an ascii file using specific font "Latin Modern Mono 12" "regular" "9"


System : opensuse leap 42.3

I have a bash script that build a text file.
I would like the last command doing :
print_cmd -o page-left=43 -o page-right=22 -o page-top=28 -o page-bottom=43 -o font=LatinModernMono12:regular:9 some_file.txt

where :

 print_cmd ::= some printing command

-o page-left=43 -o page-right=22 -o page-top=28 -o page-bottom=43 ::= margin definition options
-o font=LatinModernMono12:regular:9 ::= 'font name : font style : font size' font definition options

some_file.txt ::= the file to print

I want to use any standard installed fonts.

I had a look to enscript and groff but I don't understand how to install the font I want to use to their environment.

Any help is welcome

pbmtextps - render text into a bitmap via postscript SYNOPSIS
pbmtextps [-font fontfile] [-fontsize fontsize] [-resolution resolution] [-stroke strokesize] [-verbose [text] DESCRIPTION
pbmtextps takes a single line of text from the command line and renders it into a PBM image. The image is cropped at the top and the right. It is not cropped at the left or bottom so that the text begins at the same position rela- tive to the origin. You can use pnmcrop to crop it all the way. OPTIONS
-font By default, pbmtextps uses TimesRoman. You can specify the font to use with the -font option. This is the name of any valid post- script font which is installed on your system. -fontsize Size of font in points. See the -resolution option for information on how to interpret this size. Default is 24 points. -resolution Resolution in dots per inch of distance measurements pertaining to generation of the image. PBM images don't have any inherent reso- lution, so a distance such as "1 inch" doesn't mean anything unless you separately specify what resolution you're talking about. That's what this option does. In particular, the meaning of the font size is determined by this resolution. If the font size is 24 points and the resolution is 150 dpi, then the font size is 50 pixels. Default is 150 dpi. -stroke Width of line to use for stroke font. There is no default stroke width because the letters are solid by default. USAGE
See pbmtext for usage examples. SEE ALSO
