I managed a few weeks ago to make hebrew work on LaTeX (using TeXShop).
Now I updated to MacTex 2015.
Since the upgrade, the hebrew is gone!
All I get is this non-informative message:
kpathsea: Running mktexpk --mfmode / --bdpi 600 --mag 1+120/600 --dpi 720 rdavidi
mktexpk: don't know how to create bitmap font for rdavidi.
mktexpk: perhaps rdavidi is missing from the map file.
kpathsea: Appending font creation commands to missfont.log.)
(see the transcript file for additional information)
!pdfTeX error: /usr/texbin/pdflatex (file rdavidi): Font rdavidi at 720 not found
What can I do to restore hebrew? Or how do I re-install that rdavidi font?
My configuration: MacTex 2015 (with Live Tex installed), TeXShop, rendering via pdfLaTeX. I intend mainly to write in hebrew, a bit english, and a lot of math.
Supposedly the instructions are:
Download http://sourceforge.net/projects/ivritex/files/culmus-latex/. Notice you should download 0.7r1.
Unpack the archive and load up Terminal; cd to unpacked directory
TEXMFDIR is a makefile variable used to point to where we’re going to unpack and install everything - we’re going to use
So, paste this into Terminal:
sudo make TEXMFDIR=/usr/local/texlive/texmf-local/
...followed by your root password.
Write the same line but add install in the end
sudo make TEXMFDIR=/usr/local/texlive/texmf-local/ install
Voilà! You should now be able to compile LaTeX files with Hebrew on OS X. Remember to have
\unsethebrew where you wish to type Hebrew.
Also works for Yosemite (10.10.4).
