I am using Ubuntu 12.04. I have full TeXlive.

I wanted Indian rupee symbol. I downloaded tfrupee from CTAN. I did following:

unzip tfrupee.zip  
cd tfrupee/  
sudo cp -rv fonts/type1/tfrupee/ /usr/share/texmf/fonts/type1/  
sudo cp -rv fonts/afm/tfrupee/ /usr/share/texmf/fonts/afm/  
sudo cp -rv fonts/tfm/tfrupee/ /usr/share/texmf/fonts/tfm/  
sudo cp -rv fonts/map/dvips/tfrupee/ /usr/share/texmf/fonts/map/dvips/  
sudo cp -rv fonts/source/tfrupee/ /usr/share/texmf/fonts/source/  
sudo cp -rv tex/latex/tfrupee/ /usr/share/texmf/tex/latex/  
sudo texhash  
sudo updmap-sys --enable Map=tfrupee.map

Now, Kile recognizes tfrupee package, but it does not recognize \rupee symbol.

Please help.

  • Try with updmap-sys --enable Map newfont.map. (without =) – user11232 May 2 '12 at 7:11
  • Welcome to TeX.sx! Usually, we don't put a greeting or a "thank you" in our posts. While this might seem strange at first, it is not a sign of lack of politeness, but rather part of our trying to keep everything very concise. Upvoting is the preferred way here to say "thank you" to users who helped you. Also, you don't have to sign with your name since it automatically appears in the lower right corner of your post. – Torbjørn T. May 2 '12 at 7:12
  • I tried updmap-sys --enable Map newfont.map. but failed... – Kedar May 2 '12 at 7:59
  • i think Torbjørn T. meant "newfont" to be an example. in your case, that example would signify "updmap-sys --enable Map tfrupee.map" – wasteofspace May 2 '12 at 9:04
  • Yes had tried updmap-sys --enable Map tfrupee.map – Kedar May 2 '12 at 9:50
