# Font installation working on Win/miktex but not Ubuntu/texlive [closed]

after researching and trying out many tipps here from online ressources (spending two days) I am about to give up - but still hope that maybe you might have some good idea.

The task: I want to install the rotis font package. I've got both the font files themselves as well as the help files from CTAN following also the instructions included there (http://mirror.unl.edu/ctan/fonts/metrics/w-a-schmidt/pro.txt). Unfortunately the routine for TeX Live (2009) is not described, but I thought I found my way using different other ressources.

What have I done/tried so far?

• Using kpsewhich TEXMFLOCAL / TEXMFHOME / pdftex.map etc to identify visible paths/locations.
• Copying all relevant files to their respective locations and TEXMFLOCAL
• I checked, that no local (`~/texmf` `~/.texmf-var` etc.) might interact
• texhash (many times)
• Using `updmap-sys --enable Map=pro.map`
• Checked whether the entries for the font are included in the pdftex.map file identified with kpsewhich -> the entries are there!

Hopefully I have not forgotten anything.

As I have a dual boot installation I tried the installation also under Windows / MikTeX 2.9 - I managed to install the fonts within one hour!

Thus, using the exact same testfile that worked under miktex under TeXLive09/Ubuntu12.04 I got the following error:

``````(/usr/local/share/texmf/tex/latex/pro/t1pro.fd)
(/usr/local/share/texmf/tex/latex/pro/t1pr1.fd)

(./Fonttest1.aux) )

{/usr/share/texmf-texlive/fonts/enc/dvips/base/8r.enc}

!pdfTeX error: pdflatex (file pr1r8a.pfb): cannot open Type 1 font file for reading
==> Fatal error occurred, no output PDF file produced!

Did you do steps 4 and 5 above using `sudo`? – Sigur Jan 10 '13 at 14:45
did you check the case of the file names? Cases does not matter on Windows. What does `kpsewhich pr1r8r.pfb` say? – daleif Jan 10 '13 at 15:06
pdflatex can't find a type font: `pr1r8a.pfb`. Does it exits? It is in the right place? Did you update the file database? – Ulrike Fischer Jan 10 '13 at 18:00
