All matplotlib needs is the *.afm files. It uses this to compute text
lengths, etc, for layout. You'll just need to provide the right font
names to the text commands, perhaps using a font dictionary as in
examples/text_themes.py. Your postscript output device will still
need to know about the fonts of course. Note that I use a custom font
matching scheme in backend_ps and I certainly don't claim that it is
ideal. So if you encounter strange behavior, let me know.

This doesn't look like a backend_ps error. Have you upgraded to
matplotlib-0.42.2? I've reworked text handling in the backends so
it's hard for me to compare what I've got now without knowing what
version of matplotlib you're using.
