# LuaLaTeX works only after LaTeX did [closed]

The problem that I experienced is when I compile this MWE+:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{simpsons}
\begin{document}
\Bart Use \TeX, dude!
\end{document}


If I compiled it with LuaLaTex after I installed the font (simpsons) it gives the following error:

Font \simpsons=simpsons scaled 1500 not loadable: metric data not found or ba
d.


So now I reverted back from LuaLaTex to LaTex and it compiled, then when I tried LuaLatex again it now worked.

What does LaTex do that LuaLatex requires, but does not do? Or what I should have done?

This is not a MWE, because I don't have simpsons.sty. Without that, we have a hard time helping you. – topskip Aug 17 '12 at 17:33
After downloading the relevant files from tex.ac.uk/tex-archive/usergrps/uktug/baskervi/4_4 I can compile bart.tex without any problems with LuaLaTeX. You need to give more information (which distribution for example, the full log file) for us to help. – topskip Aug 17 '12 at 18:42
@PatrickGundlach: I will now have a problem posting the original log file, because after did as above the problem went away. I done it under MiKTeX 2.9. Sorry if I misunderstood the MWE, but I wanted to use simpsons.sty and that is when I found the above. – Louis Aug 17 '12 at 19:34
I assume that one of the "convert metafont into tfm/pk" commands didn't work under LuaLaTeX/MikTeX but with LaTeX. Now that they are installed, you can use LuaTeX. Any other MikTeX user should try that... – topskip Aug 17 '12 at 19:40
@PatrickGundlach TNX I will see if can go into that. – Louis Aug 17 '12 at 19:51
