I've just installed MinionPro fonts for LaTeX, as it is written in the HowTo of the minionpro package. My font's version is "Version 2.030;PS 2.000;hotconv 1.0.51;makeotf.lib2.0.1867. Than, I tried to test the fonts, and use extra symbols by \PiSymbol command, like this:


Compiling this with pdflatex, it gives the following message:

 pdfTeX warning: pdflatex (file
 ionPro-Regular.pfb): glyph `orn.011'

And in the PDF output, an ugly box appears instead the expected symbol.

Please give any hints, where to look for the reason of this error, what is missing for it to work. I've googled a lot, but haven't found anything.

Thanks for correcting my code box, i haven't known how to create it. – deeenes Jan 28 '11 at 19:30

It works for me. I have "Version 1.021; PS 001.001; Core 1.0.35;makeotf.lib1.5.4492". It seems that adobe has changed the glyph name from "orn.011" to "bullet.011" so it seems you will need to edit the encoding files (and then post the fixed version to the mailing list at minionpro-devel@lists.berlios.de)

Super!!! It works! So, now i'm editing the encoding file, and i will post to the mailing list. Thanks! – deeenes Jan 28 '11 at 19:28
Now, i renamed most of the symbols; but, a few specimens still missing: 'blackdiamond', 'blackleftpointingtriangle', 'blackrightpointingtriangle', 'blacksquare', 'fisheye', 'orn.024', 'orn.028', 'orn.030', 'whiteleftpointingtriangle', 'whiterightpointingtriangle'. How can i get information, what are the new names of them? – deeenes Jan 28 '11 at 20:01
You can use, for example, fontforge. – Lev Bishop Jan 28 '11 at 20:32
Maybe you could also try the encoding files here (I have not tested them): lists.berlios.de/pipermail/minionpro-devel/attachments/20090814/… – Lev Bishop Jan 28 '11 at 20:37
These are all perfect. So, it seems that the developers already have the correct files. Thanks! – deeenes Jan 28 '11 at 22:11
