The TeXLive 2014 was installed as I usually install them: Selected ADVANCED, then selected the collections

  • Essential programs and files
  • Generic recommended
  • LaTeX recommended
  • Windows only
  • Graphics and pictures
  • Graphics and font utilities

Having done that, I tried one of my standard latex files and got the error message below. I understand it to be a missing font. In TeXLive 2013 no error message appeared.

Could anyone tell how I can add what is missing?

Hewe is what pdflatex tells me:

kpathsea: Running mktexmf tcrm1095.mf

The command name is C:\sys\texlive\bin\win32\mktexmf name = tcrm1095, rootname = tcrm, pointsize = 1095 mktexmf: empty or non-existent rootfile! Cannot find tcrm1095.mf. kpathsea: Appending font creation commands to missfont.log.

    I don't know what others do, but I habitually install everything, as it generally saves me from troubles of this sort. Do you have serious disk space problems? – Brent.Longborough Aug 2 '14 at 7:23

    The file in question is part of the ec bundle (for me, kpsewhich tcrm1095.mf gives /usr/local/texlive/2014/texmf-dist/fonts/source/jknappen/ec/tcrm1095.mf). So the obvious solution is to install the ec package using tlmgr: does that help? – Joseph Wright Aug 2 '14 at 8:19

    Joseph, Your answer solved my problem, so when the ec package had been installed with the tlmgr install ec then the \begin{itemize} no longer gave an error message. Thnx. Brent, LaTeX is used for output of a program of mine used by others. They complain about the huge space taken up by the TeXLive files. Therefore I try to restrain my installation to what is needed and nothing more. – Christer Aug 3 '14 at 8:37
  • @JosephWright: Your comment is now an answer. Post your own, if you wish (then you can remove mine, as you are a mod) – serv-inc Jan 5 '16 at 14:53

@JosephWright answered this in the comments:

or just

habitually install everything

as @Brent.Longborough advised.
