Am trying to install Arial from CTAN.
updmap did not seem to be available on my system. So I have downloaded and installed MacTeX 2012 (previously had 2010), which enabled
updmap, but not
getnonfreefonts, and tried again.
The unzipped files went into /usr/local/texlive/2012/../texmf-local/arial which I think is right.
sudo texhash made all the right noises, as in the answer to the earlier question referred to above.
sudo updmap-sys --enable Map=ua1.map produced a limited response. I had made earlier attempts, sometimes with the wrong map name. The font is not 'working'.
testfont confirms this, saying that
ua1b8a (one of the
.tfm files) cannot be found.
I have clearly 'screwed up' my system somewhere along the line, unless I have misunderstood something. What do I do now? Remove all traces of TeX... from my computer and start again? Or...
Sorry to be so dumb.
