# Trying to make PK font tfrupee at 657 DPI

I am getting an error of The tfrupee source file could not be found, which is a part of tfrupee package. I was trying to insert the rupee symbol. I am using MikTeX 2.9 + TeXmaker + Windows 7.

I am not very tech friendly person and I am learning LaTeX.

• Welcome to TeX.SX! You can have a look at our starter guide to familiarize yourself further with our format. Aug 2 '13 at 8:33
• \documentclass[12pt]{article} \usepackage[T1]{fontenc} \usepackage{tfrupee} \begin{document} \rupee \end{document} Aug 2 '13 at 8:37
• May be Update MiKTeX Use the Start menu to start MiKTeX Options.Click Refresh FNDB and above code should work. I don't have MiKTeX to test. Aug 2 '13 at 8:44
• The miktex package seems to be faulty, it doesn't activate the map file correctly. Add \pdfmapfile{=tfrupee.map} to your document and make a bug report. Aug 2 '13 at 8:53
• Thanks to all of you. The solution by Ulrike Fischer worked. I am grateful to him and all of you for your suggestion. I am feeling great to be in this forum. Aug 3 '13 at 5:45

## Update:

Text below is now historic. The bug was fixed in February 2014, cf. linked bug entry.

It seems to be a problem of the MiKTeX package tfrupee itself: The map file though present in the package is not activated, i.e. the contents are not copied into the distribution wide configuration file.

As a workaround you can add the following line into your document

\pdfmapfile{=tfrupee.map}


But a real solution can only be done by the developer of MiKTeX. For this, a bug is filed in the MiKTeX Bug tracker under font tfrupe not activated (yes, with typo).

• This bug is started again with MikTeX since yesterday. I didn't face this issue earlier with previous installer. I just uninstalled earlier version due to space crunch on my system few days. When I downloaded and installed the MikTeX x64 again yesterday, I faced this issue with pdfLaTeX though it works the above mentioned workaround. However, I don't have any issue with XeLaTeX. Just wondering how to resolve this in pdfLaTeX too! Nov 30 '17 at 13:13
