I've got sort of a problem installing a t1 font.
All the files are in their correct position in texmf.local, at least I 
have checked that 3 times before writing to the list.

I have manually made a map file and sudo updmap enabled it:

bfrb8r Frutiger-Bold " TeXBase1Encoding ReEncodeFont " <8r.enc <bfrb8a.pfb
bfrbi8r Frutiger-BoldItalic " TeXBase1Encoding ReEncodeFont " <8r.enc 
bfrc8r Frutiger-Condensed " TeXBase1Encoding ReEncodeFont " <8r.enc 
bfrci8r Frutiger-CondensedItalic " TeXBase1Encoding ReEncodeFont " 
<8r.enc <bfrci8a.pfb
bfrl8r Frutiger-Light " TeXBase1Encoding ReEncodeFont " <8r.enc <bfrl8a.pfb
bfrli8r Frutiger-LightItalic " TeXBase1Encoding ReEncodeFont " <8r.enc 
bfrr8r Frutiger-Regular " TeXBase1Encoding ReEncodeFont " <8r.enc 
bfrri8r Frutiger-Italic " TeXBase1Encoding ReEncodeFont " <8r.enc 

This map file is also found in its place by latex and pdflatex.

My hand-made .fd file looks like this:

   [2005/03/01 v1.0 LaTeX font definitions for 8r/bfr]



\DeclareFontShape{8r}{bfr}{bx}{n} {<->ssub * bfr/b/n}{}
\DeclareFontShape{8r}{bfr}{bx}{it}{<->ssub * bfr/b/it}{}


I know that this doesn't make use of the condensed and light variants, 
which is the smaller problem right now. Are there any suggestions how to 
include them?

This file resides in 

So far, are there any errors?

Using a document with


I get an error in the log file:

LaTeX Font Warning: Font shape `T1/bfr/m/n' undefined
(Font)              using `T1/cmr/m/n' instead on input line 9.

which makes me think: Somehow the .fd file is not found. I have already 
sudo texhash'ed a couple of times - no change.

Any suggestions? Is there a way to find out if the .fd file is being found?

Thanks in advance,
