TeX - LaTeX Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for users of TeX, LaTeX, ConTeXt, and related typesetting systems. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I was testing the tufte-latex sample-book.tex example (copied and pasted character for character) but it produced the following error:

    !pdfTeX error: pdflatex (file fvmro8r): Font fvmro8r at 612 not found
==> Fatal error occurred, no output PDF file produced!

Up until that point all was going well with some 30 pages produced but then the above occurred and no output produced.

I have the Bera source file downloaded and extracted into the right place in my directories, but the fvmro8r doesn't appear there (only fvmro8a, fvmro8b).

Does anyone know where I can find this source file? Are there any specific instructions into its placement n the directory...

I'm using MikTex 2.9 on windows7 with either TeXmaker or TeXnicCenter (if that matters)...

You didn't activate the map-file. Your description is a bit unclear. If you used the package manager to install the fonts you probably have map-files in your user account and so need to run in a terminal updmap to update them. –  Ulrike Fischer Dec 8 '11 at 11:12

Thanks, that's where they are! I suppose I was a bit unclear as Ulrike said, LaTeX couldn't find the fonts but now having run updmap all is ok. –  Leeser Dec 8 '11 at 11:29
