I'm stuck here for hours trying to install fonts for TeXLive 2013. I did the same stuff as always:

  1. unzip to /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local
  2. run sudo mktexlsr
  3. then sudo updmap-sys --enable Map 5ch.map

After running the last line I'm getting message:

updmap: resetting $HOME value (was /Users/sFun) to root's actual home (/var/root).
updmap is using the following updmap.cfg files (in precedence order):
updmap is using the following updmap.cfg file for writing changes:
dvips output dir: "/usr/local/texlive/2013/texmf-var/fonts/map/dvips/updmap"
pdftex output dir: "/usr/local/texlive/2013/texmf-var/fonts/map/pdftex/updmap"
dvipdfmx output dir: "/usr/local/texlive/2013/texmf-var/fonts/map/dvipdfmx/updmap"
pxdvi output dir: "/usr/local/texlive/2013/texmf-var/fonts/map/pxdvi/updmap"

ERROR:  The following map file(s) couldn't be found:
  5ch.map (in /usr/local/texlive/2013/texmf-config/web2c/updmap.cfg)

  Did you run mktexlsr?

  You can disable non-existent map entries using the option

I also tried the same stuff for the texmf in the user library - same error message:(

    It's better to append the line Map 5ch.map to the /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local/web2c/updmap.cfg file (create it if it doesn't exist yet). Then simply run sudo updmap-sys – egreg Sep 27 '13 at 17:30
  • Hm, I remove Map 5ch.map from the 2013/.../updmap.cfg and append as u said, then run updmap-sys: no error message, but font seems to be not there: aTeX Font Warning: Font shape `T1/5ch/m/n' undefined(Font) – SmartFun Sep 27 '13 at 17:42
  • That's a different problem: there should be a t15ch.fd file in the distribution or a .sty file with the necessary \DeclareFontShape commands – egreg Sep 27 '13 at 17:44
  • But I have t15ch.fd file in the distribution with \DeclareFontShape{T1}{5ch}{m}{n}{ <-> 5chr8t }{} – SmartFun Sep 27 '13 at 17:51

    Thus either the file is not in the correct place or mktexlsr didn't succeed. – egreg Sep 27 '13 at 18:04

I finally installed my fonts. Somehow it does not work with updmap-sys. I just installed the fonts to my Library (~/Library/texmf) then create the updmap config file there (~/Library/texmf/web2c/updmap.cfg) and execute the updmap command.
