After having answered this question I thought "hmm, maybe I should actually install that package and see if it's as good as it looks...
So I tried. I downloaded
ccicons.tds.zip from here and unzipped it into my
this is a procedure that has worked for me before with siunitx and a couple of other packages, so I thought there'd be no problems here.
But when I try and use the package, I got an error. So I went and had a look at the readme, and it told me to run
updmap --enable Map ccicons.map so I did. But I still get an error:
kpathsea: Running mktexpk --mfmode / --bdpi 600 --mag 1+0/600 --dpi 600 cciconsmktexpk: don't know how to create bitmap font for ccicons. kpathsea: Appending font creation commands to missfont.log. ) !pdfTeX error: pdflatex (file ccicons): Font ccicons at 600 not found ==> Fatal error occurred, no output PDF file produced! LaTeX exited abnormally with code 70 at Thu Jan 13 17:39:09
I don't know how to fix this.
If I compile to DVI rather than straight to PDF (that is, if I use auctex's LaTeX mode rather than the PDFLaTeX mode) I can compile the document, but the
\ccLogo appears as a capital gamma... Also, when I compile to pdf, it says
LaTeX successfully formatted  pages but the log file contains the error above.
I'm on Ubuntu 10.10 using the package manager version of TeXlive.
I have similar issues with certain of the TeX gyre fonts installed through the package manager:
tgtermes for instance. I get more or less the same behaviour: compiles 0 pages in PDFLaTeX mode, logs an error about font not found (again mentioning "at 600" whatever that means), but I can compile to dvi fine...
I've run just about every version of
updmap I can imagine, and since the issue also occurs with fonts installed through the ubuntu package manager, I don't think the issue has to do with that.
