I use xpersian package to produce farsi document in ubuntu 12.04

\settextfont[Scale=1]{XB Niloofar}

but unfortunately, I get this error

Package: fontenc 2005/09/27 v1.99g Standard LaTeX package

File: eu1enc.def 2008/03/08 v0.1d Experimental unicode font encoding
LaTeX Font Info:    Try loading font information for EU1+lmr on input line 100.

I wasn't able to read the size data for this font,
so I will ignore the font specification.

I changed the font to Tahoma but nothing else happened. Thaks to Herbert, this is my file list, which is different from his.

Does a document with only \documentclass{article} and \usepackage{fontspec} in it, followed by \begin{document}Hello\end{document} compile with XeLaTeX? – egreg Nov 25 '12 at 15:06
@egreg: I compiled it by Texmaker and in Configure Texmaker>Quick Build command is written xelatex -interaction=nonstopmode %.tex|bibtex %.aux|latex -interaction=nonstopmode %.tex|latex -interaction=nonstopmode %.tex|xdvi %.dvi – hadilq Nov 26 '12 at 12:09
Was there an error? – egreg Nov 26 '12 at 12:10
No! as the same of above error was happened – hadilq Nov 26 '12 at 12:15
I changed it to xelatex -interaction=nonstopmode %.tex|bibtex %.aux|xelatex -interaction=nonstopmode %.tex|xelatex -interaction=nonstopmode %.tex|xdvi %.dvi and again the above error appeared! – hadilq Nov 26 '12 at 12:19

Thanks. but my file list is different! – hadilq Nov 26 '12 at 11:46
@user98504: you have really old files ... you should update your system – Herbert Nov 26 '12 at 17:55
@ Herbert: I just installed whole of the TeX Live last week by Ubuntu Software center! – hadilq Nov 27 '12 at 15:06
Ubuntu updates TeXLive once per year. The TL from tug.org is updated daily! – Herbert Nov 28 '12 at 13:29
