I have been trying to compile a beamer presentation and have tried everything: reinstalling (MikTeX) and running updmap.exe etc... but to no avail. I keep getting this message. I will appreciate any help that I can get with this. Thanks!!.

Error

Running miktex-hbf2gf.exe... Couldn't open `mathkerncmss.cfg'

hbf2gf (CJK ver. 4.8.4)

Sorry, but miktex-maketfm did not succeed.

The log file hopefully contains the information to get MiKTeX going again:

This is a packaging error in miktex. The sansmathaccent package is missing the tfm and vf files (https://ctan.org/tex-archive/fonts/sansmathaccent/tfm, https://ctan.org/tex-archive/fonts/sansmathaccent/vf).

I made a bug report

https://github.com/MiKTeX/miktex-packaging/issues/162

The issue should be resolved fast.

  • Thanks for your help Ulrike. I will wait for the updates.

I am having the same problem - after searching it I found the post Error: ! Font OT1/mathkerncmss/m/sl/10.95=mathkerncmssi10 at 10.95pt not loadable: Met ric (TFM) file not found which I believe is the same issue, and gives the 2 solutions:

  • Uninstalling the package sansmathaccent and clicking "no" when asked to install - this seems to work for some people, but didn't work for me.
  • Including the package newcent - this makes it compile, but also changes the font which is undesirable.

  • I tried doing both the steps myself and the first one didn't work for me as well. The second one renders a different font so not useful for me.
