During an update of MiKTeX in December 2016, the garamondx package has been marked as obsolete and removed automatically. I re-installed the package in a local tree according to the documentation in the README file. pdflatex, invoked from a command line, however, keeps failing. Using the minimal example

\documentclass[fontsize=11pt, paper=a4, DIV=9]{scrartcl}

\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[ngerman]{babel}
\usepackage{garamondx}

\begin{document}
Hello world.
\end{document}

the following error message occurs:

Trying to make PK font zgmr8r at 657 DPI...
Sorry, but makepk did not succeed.
The log file hopefully contains the information to get MiKTeX going again:
  C:/Users/Admin/AppData/Local/MiKTeX/2.9/miktex/log/miktex-makepk.log
You may want to visit the MiKTeX project page, if you need help.
!pdfTeX error: pdflatex (file zgmr8r): Font zgmr8r at 657 not found
==> Fatal error occurred, no output PDF file produced!

This is the log file:

!pdfTeX error: pdflatex (file zgmr8r): Font zgmr8r at 657 not found
 ==> Fatal error occurred, no output PDF file produced!

The makepk log file does not contain any useful hint:

2017-01-27 20:53:00,463+0100 INFO  makepk - Trying to make PK font zgmr8r at 657 DPI...

I am afraid I have missed some step during the manual re-installation of the garamondx package. What can I do to solve the problem?

    Mentioning ‘Trying to make PK font’ is already a useful hint… – Bernard Jan 27 '17 at 22:23

You have to write this line in the updmap.cfg file in Local root\miktex\config (if the file doesn't exist, create it):

Map zgm.map

Then run from the command line (as administrator): updmap.exe --verbose (the switch is to read what happens). This will regenerate dvips.map & friends, which are databases of available postscript fonts on the system. Then, the compiler will no more try to make bitmap font files.

    I've been fiddling with postscript fonts in LaTeX for more than 20 years, and I had time to learn! ;o) – Bernard Jan 27 '17 at 21:28

    More seriously, it's the general procedure to make an effective use of ps fonts in TeX, without bitmaps. – Bernard Jan 27 '17 at 21:29

    B.t.w., it happens from time to time with MiKTeX, that you install a font package, and when you use this font in document, it tries to make .pk fonts. This means dvips, or pdflatex, doesn't find the type 1 version of the fonts because dvips.map, or pdftex.map, was not updated. The solution simply consists in running updmap.exe as administrator from the command line. – Bernard Jan 27 '17 at 22:22

    I wouldn't say so, really. I'm a man who experienced some problems with fonts under MiKTeX. – Bernard Jan 27 '17 at 22:27
