I have decided to change font and heard about the fourier package. I thought I just had to type \usepackage{fourier} for it to work but the text then completely disappeared. Here is the document preamble

\usepackage[vscale=0.82, vmarginratio=1:1, hscale=0.8,  
hmarginratio=1:1,   headsep=15pt, footskip=20pt]{geometry}

I'm sorry if the question is stupid, I just have no clue how latex works, are there now two font package?

More info When I compile I can see

Trying to make PK font futri8r at 552 DPI...
Running miktex-makemf.exe...
miktex-makemf: The futri8r source file could not be found. Running ttf2pk.exe..
miktex-makepk: PK font futri8r could not be created

  • You have a faulty installation: the fonts are not enabled in the map file.

  • What do I have to install? Miktex again?

    You just have to run from the command line (both as administrator and as user): \updmap.exe.

What MiKTeX often doesn't do is this: after installing a font and the packages required to use it, the type 1 fonts database has to be updated. The reason is essentially that LaTeX uses conventioal font names and a system of metric files to compose the document, then dvips or pdflatex have to know where the real fonts are to be found. This is stored in several fikes named psfonts.map and the like.

When you install a new font these files have to be updated, which MiKTeX doesn't always do, so you have to do it on your own with the command line: updmap.exe, both as administrator and as user.
