> Is there anyone here using cm-super fonts?

I've been trying to install them but did not get any success so far:

- I put all *.pfb files in ~/Library/texmf/fonts/type1/public/cm-super/

- all dvips/*.map and dvips/*.enc files in 

- just to be sure, also all ready-to-use *.tfm files for ec and tc fonts 
(from CTAN) in ~/Library/texmf/fonts/tfm/jknappen/ec/ and 

(I never managed to configure TeXShop so that it launches Metafont to 
generate missing *.pk and *.tfm files on the fly, and I don't understand 
teTeX well enough to run its components directly from the terminal --- 
which component to run, and how? ---.)

However the tricky bit seems to be related to updmap and mktexlsr:

- I created a copy of udpmap in ~/Library/texmf/dvips/config/ and added 
the required lines (from the INSTALL file of the cm-super distribution) 
into the extra_modules section, then ran updmap from the terminal. 
Everything I got was

[legimc11:~] bvoisin% ~/Library/texmf/dvips/config/updmap
cat: *-adobe-bi.map: No such file or directory

and many more complains about "No such file or directory".

- I didn't even try to run mktexlsr.

I thought maybe running again the TeXGSInstaller would read my added 
files and do all the required initialization. Could this work?
