I found the problem and the solution: I renamed the .pfb files to the correct name, that is, MinionPro-Regular.pfb.

Please, close the post.


I found this file here ~/.texlive2011/texmf-config/web2c and I insert the map there. After some updates the error changed to

!pdfTeX error: pdflatex (file MinionPro-Regular.pfb): cannot open Type 1 font file for reading ==> Fatal error occurred, no output PDF file produced!

Maybe some progress.

I am trying to use MinionPro. I followed this tutorial but I don't have the file /etc/texmf/updmap.d/10local.cfg. I am using Lubuntu 11.10.

So I don't know where to insert the line Map MinionPro.map. I wrote it in


and after run some commands, like updmap-sys, when I try to compile the test I get the error

kpathsea: Running mktexpk --mfmode / --bdpi 600 --mag 0+545/600 --dpi 545 MinionPro-Regular-Base-aa mktexpk: don't know how to create bitmap font for MinionPro-Regular-Base-aa. mktexpk: perhaps MinionPro-Regular-Base-aa is missing from the map file. kpathsea: Appending font creation commands to missfont.log. ) !pdfTeX error: pdflatex (file MinionPro-Regular-Base-aa): Font MinionPro-Regula r-Base-aa at 545 not found

Any help, please? Maybe I have to use another cfg file. Thanks.

You can try with updmap --enable Map=MinionPro.map – Guido Sep 22 '12 at 1:48
Thanks, but nothing new. I updated my post. – Sigur Sep 22 '12 at 1:50
