I have mathdesign installed with texlive 2013. Nothing special about the installation, at least mathdesign or its fonts are not installed by myself.

Everything worked half year ago, but latest updates now cause an error with this code:

\documentclass{minimal}
\usepackage[charter]{mathdesign}
\begin{document}
Hello

Here's the output of \listfiles

The error is this one

Cannot find font md-chr8y in map file(s).

What can I do to solve this font problem?

  • It seems that an entry in the map file is missing. Check whether you have the line Map mdbch.map in the file C:\texlive\2013\texmf-dist\web2c\updmap.cfg – egreg Jan 17 '14 at 21:53
  • Yes there is a line Map mdbch.map in that file. There is also a line md-chr8y CharterBT-Roman " TeXnANSIEncoding ReEncodeFont " <texnansi.enc <bchr8a.pfb in the file pdftex.map and bchr8a.pfb exists. – Matthias Pospiech Jan 17 '14 at 22:07
  • Please, check the path recorded in the log file of pdftex.map – egreg Jan 17 '14 at 22:29
  • pdftex.map is located at C:\texlive\2013\texmf-var\fonts\map\pdftex\updmap However no log file is there. – Matthias Pospiech Jan 18 '14 at 7:25
  • I meant the log file relative to the file you're trying to compile. Search for pdftex.map. – egreg Jan 18 '14 at 10:05

I renamed the file c:/Users/Matthias Pospiech/.texlive2013/texmf-var/fonts/map/pdftex/updmap/pdftex.map and ran updmap-sys and updmap. The latter recreated the file pdftex.map. The font worked after that again.

texnansi.enc is now missing from fonts/enc/dvips/base where it was in previous versions, copy it back and it will work

    Welcome to TeX - LaTeX! As it stands this more a comment than an answer. Where is this file to be found? – Andrew Swann Oct 16 '15 at 11:05
