I use UTF8 and inputenc.sty and for latin characters it just works.

Recently I typed a little Russian in cyrillic into my source file. The document would not compile due to missing font file. I had to compile it as root once so the fonts could be generated for all user. Nevertheless I have to repeat this anytime I use a new font size or shape.

Is there a way to generate it all at once, at least for cyrillic in Computer Modern font?

Can you show us an example of a simple document that had to be compiled as root to work? – Paul Gessler Jan 14 '15 at 0:59
