When I try to compile a file, it gives errors and the output is only math accents. Plain text is not displayed.

Here is the log file:

The files start with ec and have various latter letters such as ecrm ecbx etc. What would be the problem?

Can you post a small MWE? –  subham soni Jul 22 at 17:03
    
This looks like an incomplete installation; can you try doing apt-get install texlive-fonts-recommended? –  egreg Jul 22 at 17:55
    
@egreg YES! That's the solution! Thank you. –  cagirici Jul 22 at 18:35

You should install all packages in the texlive family that bear the name recommended; in general I recommend a full install, so these problems are solved at the beginning. However, the package that contains the source for the European Modern fonts are installed by

sudo apt-get install texlive-fonts-recommended

This should get you in synch. However, this installs only the bitmapped version and you need also

sudo apt-get install cm-super

for the Type1 version, or the result won't be very good.

In any case, the texlive-fonts-recommended package contains the Latin Modern fonts also in Type1 version, so you can simply add

\usepackage{lmodern}

to your file and you will have no reason to worry.

use

\documentclass[12pt]{article}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage{lmodern}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage{amsfonts}
...

now, only ecrm1200 is missing. What is the reason this order fixes the compilation? –  cagirici Jul 22 at 17:52
    
Instead of \usepackage{lmodern} try \usepackage{kpfonts}. And install the font package cmsuper. TL 2013 is an old TeX distribution. –  Herbert Jul 22 at 17:55
