For some reason I cannot get textgreek to work with the artemisia option in scrbook.

My absolute MWE:




The process exited with error(s).

In the log file it shows:

!pdfTeX error: pdflatex (file gartemisiarg6r): Font gartemisiarg6r at 611 not found

which is weird, as the file is located in my MiKTeX dirs at C:\Program Files (x86)\MiKTeX 2.9\fonts\tfm\public\gfsartemisia\gartemisiarg6r.tfm

The package gfsartemisia is installed and I have even reinstalled it.

PS: It works with euler and cbgreek, however I don't like the curvy letters of the former and the latter has pixelated edges.

    Maybe you need to run the updmap stuff which MikTeX often fails to do. – cfr Mar 10 '18 at 2:05

    If your system is uptodate and you have the new MiKTeX console you can run an entry in the tasks menu to recreate the font maps. You probably should do it in user mode. – Ulrike Fischer Mar 10 '18 at 8:56
  • @cfr Running updmap.exe in the \miketx\bin folder solved the problem. If you turn it into an answer, I will select it. Is updmap also called by the task menu in the MiKTeX Console? – basseur Mar 10 '18 at 9:02

    @UlrikeFischer Is there a duplicate? If not, would you write an answer, please? I don't know anything about MiKTeX! – cfr Mar 11 '18 at 2:14

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because the issue was due to improper installation of the software (updating the map files was needed) – egreg Apr 12 '18 at 11:57

You may use the xelatex compiler and in addition maybe you have to add the following in preamble:
