# Frutiger font in TexLive 2011 and Lion OS

I tried to install the Frutiger font on TexLive 2011 using Lion OS. I followed this guide:

1. Copy the file frutiger.tar.gz to the folder /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local.
2. Unzip the file.
3. Open a shell and execute:

sudo updmap-sys --enable Map=/usr/local/texlive/texmf-local/dvips/base/frutiger.map

When I try to generate a PDF that uses Frutiger font, I get the following error:

!pdfTeX error: /usr/texbin/pdflatex (file pfrr8r): Font pfrr8r at 540 not found

==> Fatal error occurred, no output PDF file produced!

Any hints how to solve that?

Did you also execute the command sudo mktexlsr or, equivalently, sudo texhash?
Third and final suggestion :-) Have you specified the T1 font encoding in your TeX program? (I believe the Frutiger fonts from the CTAN only work with T1, and maybe TS1.) If this doesn't work, I give up! Hopefully, others will come up with better suggestions. OK: here's a final suggestion: You should provide a MWE of your problems, so that others can at least try to replicate it.
On the Mac, /usr/texbin is (roughly) a symbolic link to the currently chosen tex distribution. It will ultimately resolve correctly to the relevant texlive directory. So seeing /usr/texbin in the log is correct. –  Alan Munn Sep 16 '11 at 12:24
One specifies the "T1" font encoding by issuing the command \usepackage[T1]{fontenc} in the document's preamble. –  Mico Sep 16 '11 at 14:10
