I am trying to get the Molecular Biology and Evolution journal article template to build. I have limited experience with LaTeX except as a consumer of existing packages.
The linked zip file contains two sub zips, the one I have been attempting to get to compile is "MBE_LaTeX.zip" (the other lacks necessary class files etc.).
latex MBE-Sample.tex results in a failure so:

This appears to be related to this question, but I am unable to figure out the correct name/installation for the CRONOS font (it is provided in the Fonts directory in the zip file).
