I've just reinstalled MiKTeX. And I'm trying to use a chess font with either
chessfss. But either package raises the error
Sorry, but miktex-makepk did not succeed for the following reason: PK font SkakNew-Figurine could not be created. The log file hopefully contains the information to get MiKTeX going again: .../AppData/Local/MiKTeX/2.9/miktex/log/miktex-makepk.log You may want to visit the MiKTeX project page, if you need help.
The log file in turn is not terribly illuminating, terminating with the lines
2018-05-22 14:51:30,072-0500 INFO makepk - running: miktex-ttf2pk.exe -q -t SkakNew-Figurine 2018-05-22 14:51:30,337-0500 FATAL miktex-makepk - PK font SkakNew-Figurine could not be created.
What could be the cause of this?
