Hi all,

i've installed the latest i-Installer TeX package (Expert TL2004) and 
have tried to use Hans Hagen's makempy script [1] to create some 
outline fonts for a logo. But if i call the script in a terminal i 
get the following error:

>  MakeMPY 1.1 - MetaFun / PRAGMA ADE 2000-2004
>        processing file : outline.mpo
>             tex format : plain
>        requested texts : 1
>             generating : pdf file
>             generating : postscript file
>sh: line 1: acroread: command not found
>     processing aborted : invalid `acroread' run

I've installed Adobe Reader 6.0 but there is nothing like a acroread 
command. Do i have to create an alias for bash? Has anyone experience 
using this script?

Thanks in advance for all kind of infos
