# How to use the Luximono font with TeX Live?

I've switched from MiKTeX 2.9 to TeX Live 2011 (pretest version). I've managed to integrate some third party fonts (included neither in MiKTeX nor in TeX Live) in my TEXMFLOCAL tree following the instructions given here. At the moment I'm struggling to install the Luximono font which is part of MiKTeX but (due to license issues) not of TeX Live. According to getnonfreefonts, it should be possible to install Luximono (and some other non-free fonts) with TeX Live. Running the `getnonfreefonts` script went smoothly and didn't produce any error or warning messages. (I also manually ran `updmap-sys` afterwards.) However, when trying to compile a LaTeX document that uses Luximono, LaTeX complains that `luximono.sty` is not found.

I feel like I'm missing something obvious. Of course, I could try to manually download `luximono.sty`, install it in my TEXMFLOCAL (or TEXMFHOME) tree and update the file database, but at the moment I'd rather not corrupt my freshly installed and updated font maps. (I had to deal with a lot of corrupted MiKTeX installations during the last week, which was the reason to switch to TeX Live.) So, to the TeX Live experts out there: What exactly am I supposed to do to get the fonts of `getnonfreefons`, and particularly Luximono, working?

Adding `luximono.sty` in TEXMFLOCAL does nothing to the font maps. I believe it's already installed as part of the `getnonfreefonts` routine; did you run `mktexlsr`? – egreg Jul 2 '11 at 18:17
@egreg: I did (and just to be sure, did it again right now) -- `luximono.sty` is still missing. And I checked the contents of my harddisk -- no `luximono.sty`. – lockstep Jul 2 '11 at 18:25

I'm feeling really stupid at the moment, but here's the answer: The instruction to download the installer and then to run

``````texlua install-getnonfreefonts
``````

means that the `getnonfreefonts` script will be installed. To install the fonts themselves, one must then follow these instructions and run (in the case of Luximono into the TEXMFLOCAL tree)

``````getnonfreefonts-sys luximono
``````

and everthing will be fine (except one's self-perception as a LaTeX power user).
