I have installed TexLive 2012 on a Linux CentOS 5.8 via the user root. The installation has been placed at
/usr/local/texlive/2012; but for some reason, some pk fonts were placed at
Now, when I run
dvips -Ppk input.tex
via the user root, everything is fine. However, when I run the same command from other user accounts (e.g user1) it issues missing fonts error since dvips is not able to find fonts in the directory
I tried copying the contents of
/root/.texlive2012/texmf-var/fonts/pk to various places like
/home/user1/.texlive2012/texmf-var/fonts/pk /usr/local/texlive/2012/texmf-dist/fonts/pk /usr/local/texlive/2012/texmf-var/fonts/pk
and the I ran
texhash to update the file name database, but it didn't work.
I tried also to add user1 to the group in the permissions of
/root/.texlive2012/texmf-var/fonts/pk and its subfolders, but also it didn't work
Do you have any hint how to resolve this?
Note: I am a beginner in linux, so I am sorry if the question was simple.
