I'm using Miktex2.9.6236-x64. I have another computer on which I use Miktex2.9.5496. The following minimal example works only on the older version. On the newer version I'm getting the error shown below and no PDF is produced after compiling with PDFLatex. Is there a way to fix this on the new version?

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{yfonts}


\begin{document}

\begin{equation}
\textgoth{T}
\end{equation}  


\end{document}

Error message:

Sorry, but makepk did not succeed. The log file hopefully contains the information to get MiKTeX going again: C:/Users/.../AppData/Local/MiKTeX/2.9/miktex/log/miktex-makepk.log You may want to visit the MiKTeX project page, if you need help.

Process exited with error(s)

P.S. I've tried to solve this with updating the packages, making sure the required pacakages are installed, uninstalling Mixtex then reinstalling it, and I tried "updmap --verbose".

Thanks a lot.

  • Welcome to TeX.SX! This seems a problem in finding the right Type1 font. It doesn't happen with TeX Live. – egreg Apr 28 '17 at 23:47

    @egreg , yes it could be very true, thanks for pointing it out. But, up to my knowledge, Tex Live doesn't allow you to install 64-bit binaries on Windows, Miktex does, and these binaries work better when you deal with large files, and I do work with some very large files. – Rami Apr 29 '17 at 0:10

The type1 version of yfonts is not part of MiKTeX. You can download the zipped directory containing these fonts from CTAN, and install these fonts in a local texmf directory. If you don't have one, create it and validate it as a root directory with MiKTeX Settings, Roots tab.

In this directory, create LocalTeXMF\fonts\afm\yfonts, LocalTeXMF\fonts\map\yfonts and LocalTeXMF\fonts\type1\yfonts directories, in which you'll place the afm, yfrak.map and .pfb files. You don't need config_yfrak.

Next, create (if it doesn't exist yet) an updmap.cfg file in directory LocalTeXMF\miktex\config, and add this line: Map yfrak.map.

Last step: refresh the FNDB via MiKTeX Settings and run from the command line (as Administrator): updmap --verbose. That's all (!)

  • It worked! Thank you very much @Bernard !!! I thought about trying to install the font package manually, but it seemed that I needed to do a lot when I looked it up, so I was too lazy I guess. Thumbs up! – Rami Apr 29 '17 at 1:20

    You could make a feature request for miktex to include the package -- as it is part of texlive there is no reason why it shouldn't be in miktex too. – Ulrike Fischer Apr 29 '17 at 11:06
