# problems with Venturis ADF and Iwona fonts in MiKTeX

Running

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{venturis}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\begin{document}
Hello, World! 0123456789 Hamburgers!
\end{document}


through pdflatex gives me

!pdfTeX error: pdflatex.exe (file t1-yvtrc): Font t1-yvtrc at 600 not found
==> Fatal error occurred, no output PDF file produced!


even though I have installed venturis in the MiKTeX Package Manager. There are folders for Venturis in C:\Program Files (x86)\MiKTeX 2.9\fonts and in C:\Program Files (x86)\MiKTeX 2.9\tex\latex. What should I do?

Same thing for Iwona.

Have a look at tex.stackexchange.com/questions/14274/… – lockstep Jan 15 '12 at 11:07
Sounds like one or more Map files aren't being found (or even searched). Installing a font-related package via MikTeX's package manager may not always guarantee that the font map file is added to list of files to be searched. I suggest you look at the venturis documentation -- start with the README file -- and check if there's something more you need to do to enable its proper functioning. – Mico Jan 15 '12 at 11:45
Normally this problem can have two source: 1. a bug in the miktex package so that is forgets to enable the map-file. Or 2. miktex does enables the map-file but you as have local map-files the change can not be seen. To get around 2.: Check the path of the pdftex.map used by pdflatex. If it is in your user path run updmap on the command line. – Ulrike Fischer Jan 16 '12 at 17:04
You don't need to load fontenc separately if you only need the T1 encoding. venturis will load it anyway as the support files only support T1. – cfr Feb 10 '14 at 3:16

Thanks everyone who commented. I just ran updmap in my command prompt and then everything worked. Perhaps I'll try to get a better understanding of this stuff when I have time.
