  • Welcome to TeX.SX! Please help us help you and add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. Reproducing the problem and finding out what the issue is will be much easier when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}. – DG' Feb 3 at 8:19
  • Judging from the little information you gave, looks like you are trying to use Arial as a font, but there is no such thing (on your system) that works with dvips. You could try urw-arial instead: ctan.org/pkg/urw-arial – DG' Feb 3 at 8:23

    You are probably including a graphic that refers to arial. – Ulrike Fischer Feb 3 at 8:42
  • I have download from ctan.org but i do not know how to install or what i have to do with it. – Shahid Rafiq Feb 3 at 20:04
