For some reason I get an error message when using \textsc{} with txfontsb.sty. It can be my installation but since txfonts.sty is working I am bewildered. The MWE is here:

  \documentclass{article}

% \usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
  \usepackage[LY1]{fontenc}
% \usepackage{txfonts}%  works
  \usepackage{txfontsb}% error message

  \begin{document}
  \textsc{Hello world.}%
  \end{document}

As you see I have also tried using T1 instead of LY1 (without success). The error message I get is

LaTeX Font Warning: Font shape `LY1/txrc/m/sc' undefined

My font directory listings are

texmf-texlive-dist/tex/latex/txfontsb:

lgrtxr.fd   lgrtxrc.fd  lgrtxry.fd  lgrtxryc.fd 
ot1txrc.fd  ot1txryc.fd txfontsb.sty

texmf-texlive-dist/tex/latex/txfonts:

ly1txr.fd   omltxmi.fd  omstxsy.fd  ot1txss.fd  
t1txss.fd   ts1txss.fd  utxexa.fd   utxss.fd    
utxsyc.fd   ly1txss.fd  omltxr.fd   omxtxex.fd  
ot1txtt.fd  t1txtt.fd   ts1txtt.fd  utxmia.fd   
utxsya.fd   utxtt.fd    ly1txtt.fd  omstxr.fd   
ot1txr.fd   t1txr.fd    ts1txr.fd   txfonts.sty 
utxr.fd utxsyb.fd

Any clues?

  • This is not an error but only a warning. Your font doesn't have a scshape and so LaTeX will fall back to another font. Commented Apr 10, 2013 at 13:37
  • Thanks for correcting me. What I don't understand is why this happens. The manual states that SC is included.

  • The package can only be used with OT1-encoding. There are no support files for T1 or LY1 - which imho makes it quite useless. Commented Apr 10, 2013 at 14:02
  • I am quite embarrassed. Should have noticed it myself... Do you know about an alternative to txfontsb? My particular needs are: more ink to the letters than e.g. CM, bold greek letters, a good collection of math operators and not-so-wide but still good-looking equations.

  • @UlrikeFischer ... or LGR encoding, which seems to be the main use case: writing greek text with txfontsb.

This is not an error but only a warning. Your font doesn't have a scshape and so LaTeX will fall back to another font.

Also the package can only be used with OT1-encoding. There are no support files for T1 or LY1 - which imho makes it quite useless.
