# Installing MinionPro fonts on Ubuntu 10.04 running TexLive 2012

I followed the instructions to install MinionPro fonts from this website. http://carlo-hamalainen.net/blog/2007/12/11/installing-minion-pro-fonts/

However, when I tried to run the tex file at the bottom, I have this error message:

``````! LaTeX Error: File `MinionPro.sty' not found.
``````

Running the command `kpsewhich MinionPro.sty` gives the following output:

``````/usr/local/share/texmf/tex/latex/MinionPro/MinionPro.sty
``````

So the system knows where MinionPro.sty is, so why can't the file compile?

Did you start `tex` in the same shell where you started `kpsewhich`? –  Stephan Lehmke Sep 3 '12 at 8:16
Hi Stephan, how do I find that out? Not really familar with the kpsewhich command. –  Bluemilk Sep 3 '12 at 8:19
Sorry for not being clear. You reported the output of `kpsewhich`, so you probably typed that into a command shell. Is this the same shell where you are also running the `tex` command (or `pdftex` or whatever)? –  Stephan Lehmke Sep 3 '12 at 8:24
Yup it is. I am trying to compile the tex file using pdflatex, if that is of any help. –  Bluemilk Sep 3 '12 at 8:32
That's bad. There's practically no explanation for `kpsewhich` finding the file and `pdflatex` not. Something else must be going wrong. –  Stephan Lehmke Sep 3 '12 at 8:35

• Install Acrobat Reader (the `acroread` package on Ubuntu);
• Copy the OTF fonts: `sudo cp /opt/Adobe/Reader9/Resource/Font/*.otf /usr/local/share/fonts/`;
• Use `fontspec` with XeLaTeX/LuaLaTeX to make use of the fonts.
