# ! Font EU1/lmr/m/n/10=[lmroman10-regular]:mapping=tex-text at 10.0pt not loadab le: Metric (TFM) file not found

I have this sample code that I was trying to run but it kept on producing an error that says:

! Font \zf@basefont=Flama-Light at 10.0pt not loadable: Metric (TFM) file not found.
! Font \@tempfonta=Flama-Light at 10.0pt not loadable: Metric (TFM) file not found.
! Font \@tempfontb=Flama-Light at 10.0pt not loadable: Metric (TFM) file not found.
! Font EU1/lmr/m/n/10=[lmroman10-regular]:mapping=tex-text at 10.0pt not loadable: Metric (TFM) file not found.


Here is the code:

I've searched for answers in this website and found some similar problems and followed their answers but I still end up with the same errors. The code produced a PDF file but nothing is written on the slides.

• it is likely that the "flama" font doesn't have latex font support (pdflatex requires a .tfm file for each font). if this is a system font, you should be using xelatex. check other questions for the proper use of fontenc and inputenc for that approach -- it's different from what's used with pdflatex. – barbara beeton Aug 23 '13 at 18:28
• I don't see where the font is loaded, but then I don't recognise a hsrm theme for beamer: is this a local custom one? – Joseph Wright Aug 23 '13 at 18:52
• Ah, I've found github.com/hsrmbeamertheme/hsrmbeamertheme/blob/master/…. Looking over the code, it relies on fontspec being available, so XeLaTeX or LuaLaTeX, and presumably you having access to the font. Do you have a copy of Flama? It seems to be a commercial font. – Joseph Wright Aug 23 '13 at 19:42
• Oh now i get it. I don't have a copy of Flama @joseph and I'm not using xelatek either. Maybe i should just change my beamer theme since I'm short with time fixing the error anyways. – Blaire Aug 24 '13 at 5:17

In case anyone was drawn here, like me, by the tantalizing presence of the error message:

! Font EU1/lmr/m/n/10=[lmroman10-regular]:mapping=tex-text at 10.0pt not loadable: Metric (TFM) file not found.


My problem was that I needed to sudo apt-get install fonts-lmodern.

• Great, thanks, that was also my problem on a debian! – Silmathoron Sep 4 '17 at 16:18

I have succesfully used Beamer HSRM theme without 'flama' installed in Ubuntu 14 with 'xelatex', I just used an option I saw in the .sty file, this way:

\usetheme[noflama]{hsrm}


I also had to install micrsoft fonts in my Ubuntu 14 machine, because the 'noflama' option makes use of 'Arial' font instead of 'Flama'. (I installed them with these instructions: http://embraceubuntu.com/2005/09/09/installing-microsoft-fonts/, I think I had used hsrm without doing this in previous Ubuntu versions)

Sounds as if your theme should be used with xelatex. In this case don't load inputenc!

The beamer theme hsrm is clearly very much tied to the requirements of a particular university. In particular, it requires the Flama font, which is commercial and is assumed to be installed locally. It also requires the use of XeLaTeX or LuaLaTeX as a result. If you do have the font, use one of these engines and drop inputenc from your source. If you don't have the font you'll have to extract what you want/need from the theme by hand, at least dropping the font part.
