I've installed the archaic package and I've included \usepackage{linearb} in my document. I needed a stick figure symbol so I want to use this package which has a symbol \BPman satisfying my needs. But when I use this symbol by command \textlinb{\BPman}, an error occurs

!pdfTeX error: pdflatex (file linb10): Font linb10 at 720 not found

How to resolve this?

You probably didn't do a correct installation. How did you do it? –  egreg Jul 17 '12 at 6:54
    
miktex admin package manager –  umar Jul 17 '12 at 7:19
    
Look whether the file .../fonts/tfm/public/archaic/linb10.tfm is present (the dots stand for the main TeX directory). If it is, try refreshing the file name database; otherwise, try redoing the installation. –  egreg Jul 17 '12 at 7:22

OK, so it should be a "map" problem. I'm sure some MiKTeX expert will come to the rescue. –  egreg Jul 17 '12 at 7:37

You probably have a local pdftex.map. If you install fonts in admin mode such local maps are not updated. Check the path of pdftex.map mentioned in your log-file. If it is in your user profile run updmap on the command line.
