In my style file I have

\usepackage[OT2, T1]{fontenc}

And then I use the following code

The Conception of Complementarity: An Historical and Methodological Analysis \emph{[in Russian]} = \foreignlanguage{russian}{\emph{Alekseev I. S.} Kon{ts}ep{ts}i{ya} dopolnitel{p1}nosti: istoriko-metodologi{ch}eski\u{i} analiz}

If I use the MinionPro font then the end result is just a load of boxes. But when I use the default (by removing the \usepackage{MinionPro} font then I get the desired result, as seen in this picture:

enter image description here

The error message I get when using MinonPro is something of the following form:

pdfTeX warning: pdflatex.exe (file C:/Users/Mats/AppData/Local/MiKTeX/2.9/fonts /type1/Adobe/MinionPro/MinionPro-It.pfb): glyph `afii10022' undefined

So what am I doing wrong? (Running MiKTeX 2.9)

  • Welcome to TeX.sx! Please add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. It will be much easier for us to reproduce your situation and find out what the issue is when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}.

  • There's no font for the OT2 encoding in the MinionPro family, I'd say.

  • @egreg, according to the Documentation of MinionPro there is an OT2 encoding, but may be it has not been installed, for FontPro there is a feature --cyrillic

  • If that is indeed the case, then how to I install the OT2 encoding? Mar 14, 2013 at 13:07
  • First, make sure that there are no files named OT2MinionPro*.fd in ...\MikTeX\tex\latex\MinionPro. If that is the case, then take a look at the FontPro site, but first uninstall your current version to avoid conflicts. (btw, use @name to notify other commentators)

Here's a short description of what I did. I am not sure what exactly did the trick, but at least I got my stuff to work.

I followed the instructions found here: http://kobi.nat.uni-magdeburg.de/patrick/pmwiki.php?n=Wiki.HOWTO-InstallMinionProInLATEXOnWindows

And then I did the same thing again, except for Local and not Roaming folder in AppData.

Then I deleted the updmap.cfg file found in the Roaming folder and then it worked.
