I have Ubuntu 12.04 and I'm trying to install the IEEE template to create a .tex document. I have tried both methods of the following tutorial, but none worked: https://softwareexperiments.wordpress.com/2011/01/05/installing-ieeetrans-and-the-ieee-bibtex-style-for-latex-in-ubuntu/

When I try to compile it, it outputs errors like these:

! I can't find file `nullfont'. <*> ...ljfour; mag:=1; nonstopmode; input nullfont Please type another input file name ! Emergency stop. <*> ...ljfour; mag:=1; nonstopmode; input nullfont Transcript written on mfput.log.

`! I can't find file `pplr7t'. <*> ...:=ljfour; mag:=1; nonstopmode; input pplr7t Please type another input file name ! Emergency stop. <*> ...:=ljfour; mag:=1; nonstopmode; input pplr7t Transcrip`t written on mfput.log. grep: pplr7t.log: No such file or directory

I don't understand what's wrong, I was able to make it work on a 10.04 seamlessly.

This post is also discussed on LaTeX-Community.org. Recommended there: real TeX Live installation instead of taking the 2009 version of the Ubuntu repositories. –  Stefan Kottwitz May 11 '12 at 10:10

I recommend to install package texlive-fonts-recommended which is provided in the regular Ubuntu repository. Perhaps the package ttf-mscorefonts-installer is also necessary.
