I am using Miktex and texstudio to typeset. I have to use this indian rupee symbol in tex file.. But I could not use that in my texstudio.

How to I use it.

What I am Using??

  1. I am using Windows 8.1 enterprise edition.

  2. MiKTeX for LaTeX and TeXStudio as editor.

When I am in MiKTeX it is giving this error:

Process started: pdflatex.exe -synctex=1 -interaction=nonstopmode "integers-decimal-rational".tex
Trying to make PK font tfrupee at 720 DPI...
Running miktex-makemf.exe...
miktex-makemf: The tfrupee source file could not be found. Running ttf2pk.exe...
miktex-makepk: PK font tfrupee could not be created.
Process exited with error(s)
  • Under MiKTeX, you probably have simply to run updmap.exe from the command map, to update the type 1 fonts database: on installing fonts, it may happen MiKTeX doesn't run it.

  • Just type upmap.exe (or updmap --verbose if you want to have details) from the command prompt (I don't know to launch the command prompt on Windows 8.1, as I run Windows 7, bt if you don't know, you'll find it in the Help).
