What is the procedure to install Type 1 font in MiKTeX 2.9?

Can anybody help me?

    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. You don't have to sign with your name since it automatically appears in the lower right corner of your post. – percusse Jul 28 '12 at 10:09
  • Do you compile with XeLaTeX or LuaLaTeX? See for example: tex.stackexchange.com/questions/24691/… – Marco Daniel Jul 28 '12 at 11:26

    @Katrijn The page is outdated. E.g. today you shouldn't change config.ps. – Ulrike Fischer Jul 28 '12 at 14:06

    Your question is to vage. Possible answers can be anything from "use fontinst" to "use the package manager of miktex". – Ulrike Fischer Jul 28 '12 at 14:30

LaTeX can't use Type1 fonts directly. It needs to have metric informations in files .tfm.

There are Type 1 fonts already prepared for using with LaTeX. For example you can use the font libertine with including \usepackage{libertine} in your document. The package libertine-legacy on CTAN contains all you need.

If your font (can you give us the name?) is not yet prepared for using with LaTeX you have to do this by your own. The perl script ìnstallfont by Josef Kleber also may be helpful (search CTAN).

To learn more how to install fonts the font installation guide might be again helpful too.

  • And in the year 2012 modern TeX engines (i.e. XeTeX and LuaTeX) can use OpenType fonts without any installation magic. So: Use OpenType fonts with XeTeX/LuaTeX. – Martin Schröder Jul 30 '12 at 8:37
