comment Error: 'getmapdl' is not recognized as an internal or external command
BTW, your \getmap call is wrong. You must add a location in curly braces!

Are you sure that the Texnicenter call does include the --shell-escape command line option? Does your file compile from the command line with the above option?

Sorry for the bad formating. I'm posting from hospital via smart phone - no editor :-( Maybe, someone can edit the answer!

Acronyms should not have under lengths, so it should not be a problem. But in this case you better use opacity=0

comment How to use downloaded fonts with pdfLaTeX on Ubuntu
@Anony-Mousse Can you please open a new question about how to use installfont-tl. Then I can give a detailed answer. That's not possible here in a comment.

comment How to use downloaded fonts with pdfLaTeX on Ubuntu
@Anony-Mousse What did you do exactly? Did you use -l without specifying a directory? If you want to install the font into your local TeX tree, then don't use -l at all! installfont-tl uses $TEXMFLOCAL by default!

comment File size generated from Pdflatex is too big
@daleif That shouldn't be the case: "These fonts, or suitable substitute fonts with the same metrics, must always be available in all PDF readers and so need not be embedded in a PDF. PDF viewers must know about the metrics of these fonts." OTOH, we've just had a thread in the german pdf newsgroup, that a bank sent account informations without embedded Arial-BoldMT causing immense trouble under Linux.

You can use one of the Standard Type 1 Fonts (Standard 14 Fonts) (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/…) (Times. Courier, Helvetica) and forbid embedding them. PDF readers must have 'local' copies of these fonts. Embeded fonts are quite big if you only have 50kb. But this is just as braindead as your instructor.
