I have the Minionpro Font files in the same directory as the master LaTeX file. When compiling, the path to the MinionPro fonts folder would be ../minion/ containing:


Now I am asking myself, how to use the MinionPro font in a LaTeX document compiled with lualatex? I have tried the following:

\setmainfont[ Path = ../minion/,Mapping=tex-text]{MinionPro-Medium}
\setmathfont[Path = ../minion/]{MinionPro-Medium}

but the Math parts look horrible and contain characters not from minion pro. The big integral sign is not used etc.. I have been able to use the local fonts folder successfully with pdflatex (How can I distribute a non-CTAN font with my source files?).

Now to the central question: Are all the above listed .otf files complementary? How to use this font? I want to use it for math mode as well as for text mode. I prefer the medium version of the font, as the thickness is perfectly for my taste. Which file contains the math bits? Please note: I don't want to install the .otf in the system as I want to have them in the directory where I have them right now.

I know that are many beginner questions but I am really stuck on this task. I would be happy if someone could guide me on how to use MinionPro, having it in my local folder.

    I believe the font you need for math is Minion Math. See this answer for details. – Xavier Aug 2 '13 at 15:23
  • I could use MnSymbol, as this seems to complement the missing Symbols, but I don't know how to use MnSymbol with luatex. \setmathfont{MnSymbol} gives me errors and produces no output : !LuaTeX error (file /usr/local/texlive/2013/texmf-dist/fonts/opentype/public/mns ymbol/MnSymbol-Bold10.otf): Invalid character. – GEO Aug 3 '13 at 9:14
  • Have you tried \usepackage{mnsymbol}? – Xavier Aug 3 '13 at 13:20
  • Yeah, no success (If I use \usepackage{mnsymbol} together with \setmathfont{MnSymbol}). When I only use \usepackage{mnsymbol} the symbols are from mnsymbol but the letters etc. are still computer modern. – GEO Aug 3 '13 at 14:42

    I believe you need \setmainsfont{Minion Pro} for the main font, and \usepackage{mnsymbol} for the symbols. Read the manual / instructions of mnsymbol. – Xavier Aug 3 '13 at 15:20
