I downloaded "PSCyr-0.4-beta9-tex.tar.gz" and "PSCyr-0.4-beta9-type1.tar.gz" archives but I don't know what I should do with it. In google I don't found guide for installing this on mac os x.

  • Welcome to TeX.SX! Where did you download them from? – egreg Dec 12 '14 at 21:09

The best is to use the Terminal.

  1. Create a working directory and move there the two archives

  2. Open a Terminal window and cd to the created directory

  3. Uncompress the two files with

    tar zxf PSCyr-0.4-beta9-tex.tar.gz
    tar zxf PSCyr-0.4-beta9-type1.tar.gz
  4. Do cd PSCyr

  5. Do cp install.sh install-tl.sh

  6. Open the install-tl.sh file with a text editor and modify it so that it contains

    INSTALLDIR=`kpsewhich -expand-var='$TEXMFLOCAL'`
    mkdir -p $INSTALLDIR/{tex/latex,fonts/tfm/public,fonts/vf/public,fonts/type1/public,fonts/map/dvips,fonts/afm/public,doc/fonts}/pscyr
    mv dvips/pscyr/* $INSTALLDIR/fonts/map/dvips/pscyr
    mv tex/latex/pscyr/* $INSTALLDIR/tex/latex/pscyr
    mv fonts/tfm/public/pscyr/* $INSTALLDIR/fonts/tfm/public/pscyr
    mv fonts/vf/public/pscyr/* $INSTALLDIR/fonts/vf/public/pscyr
    mv fonts/type1/public/pscyr/* $INSTALLDIR/fonts/type1/public/pscyr
    mv fonts/afm/public/pscyr/* $INSTALLDIR/fonts/afm/public/pscyr
    mv LICENSE doc/README.koi doc/PROBLEMS ChangeLog $INSTALLDIR/doc/fonts/pscyr
    echo "Map pscyr.map\n" >> $INSTALLDIR/web2c/updmap.cfg

    There are a few lines to remove and TEXMF should be changed into INSTALLDIR (setting TEXMF could confuse the system); also TEXMFMAIN must be changed into TEXMFLOCAL. You can also just remove all the contents and paste the code above.

  7. Do sudo sh install-tl.sh (type the administrator password when requested)

  8. Enjoy.

I created the following test file, using http://generator.lorem-ipsum.info/_russian

Here's the output

  • After installation latex don't makes pdf but dvi creates without error (as I think :D). If I'll comment \usepackage{pscyr} then all work properly. This is log of PSCyr installation: pastebin.com/jwzhmnVG – 0x1337 Dec 13 '14 at 14:56
  • @0x1337 The pscyr.map file, together with t2a.enc and t2d.enc might have been saved in the wrong directory. I realize now that there was a small error in the file (I fixed it in my own setting and forgot to fix it also in my answer). The line starting with mv dvips/pscyr/* has to be fixed as it's now. You can remedy manually by doing sudo mkdir /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local/fonts/maps/dvips/pscyr and sudo mv /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local/dvips/pscyr/* /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local/fonts/maps/dvips/pscyr. Then run sudo updmap-sys. – egreg Dec 13 '14 at 15:05
  • I done it. But also I have errors... pastebin.com/jDdVCTGq My install-tl.sh - pastebin.com/xxb6vWYR – 0x1337 Dec 13 '14 at 15:37
  • @0x1337 I don't know where I have my head. ;-) Running sudo mktexlsr should be done before sudo updmap-sys. Sorry. – egreg Dec 13 '14 at 15:38
