This question already has an answer here:

I have been trying to install a font called Frutiger that I have in a zip file myfonts.zip using this guide on TUG site. By the way, I'm on a Mac with MacTeX. The zip file has this tree structure:

myfonts/fonts/amf/frutiger/*.amf files
myfonts/fonts/tmf/frutiger/*.tmf files
myfonts/fonts/type1/frutiger/*.pfb files
myfonts/fonts/vf/frutiger/*.vf files
myfonts/tex/latex/psnfss/*.fd files

I have put the above files into /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local/. For example myfont.map is in /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local/dvips/psfonts/frutiger.map and so on.

Then I did these steps:

1. Run 'sudo -H mktexlsr' in the console.
2. Run 'sudo -H updmap-sys --enable Map=myfont.map'
3. Run 'sudo -H mktexlsr' again.

In my .tex file I added \usepackage{frutiger}. When I run my .tex file with PDFLaTeX I get this error:

! LaTeX Error: File `frutiger.sty' not found.

I have tried to download and put frutiger.sty in the same folder as my .tex file but the new font is not showing up. I have tried the above steps several times but it does not seem like the font is being installed correctly. Last time I got this output in the console.

1. sudo -H mktexlsr
mktexlsr: Updating /usr/local/texlive/2012/../texmf-local/ls-R... 
mktexlsr: Updating /usr/local/texlive/2012/texmf/ls-R... 
mktexlsr: Updating /usr/local/texlive/2012/texmf-config/ls-R... 
mktexlsr: Updating /usr/local/texlive/2012/texmf-dist/ls-R... 
mktexlsr: Updating /usr/local/texlive/2012/texmf-var/ls-R... 
mktexlsr: Done.

2. sudo -H updmap-sys --enable Map=frutiger.map
updmap is using the following updmap.cfg files (in precedence order):
updmap is using the following updmap.cfg file for writing changes:
/usr/local/texlive/2012/texmf-config/web2c/updmap.cfg unchanged.  Map files not recreated.

3. sudo -H mktexlsr
mktexlsr: ... Same as in step 1 ....

Do you have any clue on what could be wrong?

EDIT: Here is the content of frutiger.sty:

    [2005/08/08 v1.2 Style file for Linotype Frutiger]
%% End of file 'frutiger.sty'

Here is a minimal example of what I'm trying to do.

\title{\textbf{Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet consectetur adipiscing elit}}
\section{Section I}

Adding \usepackage{frutiger} doesn't change the font more than that bold text becomes normal. I have checked the zip file and it seems to be okay as I can read the files with an editor. Also, I tried to force the map to be recreated using sudo -H updmap-sys --force --enable Map=frutiger.map. AFAIK there is no difference. Adding \fontfamily{pfr}\fontseries{m}\selectfont before any text makes the text look like Frutiger, I don't know if it actually is real Frutiger though. How do I find out?

  • Welcome to TeX.sx! What happens if you have frutiger.sty in the same folder as the document? – egreg Apr 27 '13 at 16:25
  • Frutiger is a sans serif font. If you add \renewcommand{\familydefault}{\sfdefault} after \usepackage{frutiger} you'll get it as main text font. – egreg Apr 27 '13 at 17:07
  • frutiger.sty should go in /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local/tex/latex/frutiger (remember sudo mktexlsr). Can you add the contents of frutiger.sty? – egreg Apr 27 '13 at 17:32
  • Can you copy the contents of frutiger.sty and paste it into your question? – egreg Apr 27 '13 at 17:52
  • Does Manual font installation help you? – Speravir Apr 27 '13 at 18:07
