[reportlab-users] RenderPM and TTF fonts

I saw an example in the code and did this:

pdfmetrics.registerFont( ttfonts.TTFont( "Vera", "Vera.ttf" ) )

But I am getting this error:

Can't setFont(Vera) missing the T1 files? Originally
exceptions.AttributeError: TTEncoding instance has no attribute 'vector'

I guess it does not handle TTF fonts. So what is the solution when trying to
display unicode text using RenderPM? I had converted my TTF font to Type 1
using ttf2pt1 but it does not seem to preserve the unicode glyphs. I was
getting this error when trying to use the converted font:

'utf8' codec can't decode bytes in position 10-12: invalid data

What can I do? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
