I'm trying to install a set of fonts but unsuccessful. (oxford uni but poor documentation) http://spivey.oriel.ox.ac.uk/mike/fuzz/ https://iainhouston.com/blog/z_on_osx.html

I have bunch of tfm files, a bunch of mf files and a bunch of pk files.

I using windows 7 and texlive 2016.

I tried copying all these files to:


and then to:


I've ran mktexlsr and udmap but I get cannot find oxsz10 in map files. Do you have any tip on how to do (I guess the mapping of the fonts?) I don't have any map files?

1 Answer 1


I found in the tgz various .mf and a fuzz.sty. Move the mf to \texmf-local\fonts\source\local and the sty to \texmf-local\tex\latex. Then run mktexlsr (probably not needed, but doesn't harm) and then try to compile as a test the tut.tex in the tgz.

The fonts are metafonts, so no map-file is involved. The needed .tfm and .pk files are normally created during the compilation.

  • For some reason the texmf-local didn't work. I ended up creating a new directory fuzz, updating texmf.cnf, and moving the *.sty to fuzz\latex and *.mf to fuzz\fonts\source\local. Apr 10, 2017 at 20:04
  • Thanks for the pointers though! :) Apr 10, 2017 at 20:05
  • This is failing now that I'm trying to use \emph I get Font U/oxsz/m/n/7=oxsz7 at 7.0pt not loadable: Metric (TFM) file not found. ...ph Apr 10, 2017 at 20:46
  • The mf is in the folder, so it sound as if the generation of the tfm failed for you (works fine for me). But what do expect to get from using \emph? The font contains no chars, only some symbols. It is not meant for normal text use. Apr 10, 2017 at 21:12
  • I didn't expect the font to be applied everywhere. Indeed my intention was to emph something other than the equations. But you're right in spite of the error I can get it to work on the document normally and I'm unlikely to apply emph to the equation symbols. Apr 11, 2017 at 9:28
