Installed Luximono is not working

I am using MacTex-2011 on a mac 10.7. Recently, I have installed luximono using getnonfreefonts. Everything went ok, but when I was compiling the document (pdfLaTeX) with the packages:

``````\usepackage[T1]{fontenc} \usepackage{luximono}
``````

luximono was not recognized, i.e. LaTeX used the standard font. Any ideas how to get it working?

Stupid question: If you want Luximono as the standard text font, have you tried `\renewcommand{\familydefault}{\ttdefault}`? – lockstep Jan 6 '12 at 11:41
what does `kpsewhich luximono.sty` say? – daleif Jan 6 '12 at 11:45

Luxi Mono is a monotype font and not enabled by default. If you want to use it change the default tt font family, use `\ttfamily` or `\texttt{..}`.

By the way: it is not a good idea to set the complete document in a monotype font.

What is the reason for avoiding monotype fonts for the complete document? – qubyte Jan 6 '12 at 13:09
compare it with another font ... However, if one has to submit an article to a journal, it may make sense to use a monotype font, counting charcters is easier. – Herbert Jan 6 '12 at 15:48
Oh! I thought you meant Monotype Corp. Yes, I can obviously see why a monospaced font is a bad idea! – qubyte Jan 6 '12 at 16:01
