This is perhaps a very stupid question -- I'm trying to get the luximono font activated for listings in a LaTeX document. I'm not very LaTeX savvy concerning the whole TeX installation architecture. I am on OS X 10.6, and I am using TeXShop. I understand that luximono is not part of the normal tex live installation. So what I did is follow the instruction of this question. I have now


in my document, but the font of the listing looks all bad, some serif font. I get an error message in the log:

LaTeX Font Warning: Font shape `OT1/ul9/m/n' undefined
(Font)              using `OT1/cmr/m/n' instead on input line 175.

I have a hunch that when I ran getnonfreefonts -a, there is no environment variables $TEXMFHOME or $TEXMFLOCAL set, so perhaps it installed in the wrong place?

I have folder /usr/local/texlive/ on my computer, I don't know if this is the right place, or if the standard OS X ghostscript is somewhere else?


Maybe this helps: I seem to have two folders, /usr/local/texlive/2010/texmf/fonts and /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local/fonts. The installation was done into the latter.

It does also require use of package


– without it you get wired results.

...found in a comment to this post. Now it works!

By the way, it seems indeed to pick up the TEXMFHOME installation in ~/Library/texmf while /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local is wrong (updmap looks in /usr/local/texlive/2010/texmf instead).

The reason it put the fonts in ~/Library/texmf is because you used getnonfreefonts instead of sudo getnonfreefonts-sys. The latter installs in /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local. – Alan Munn Apr 8 '12 at 11:58
