The other possibility, if i have well learned Gerben's lessons, is to  
place the Map file in


and to run from the command line

updmap --enable Map tu.map

(without sudo, etc.) It's a clean install, that also doesn't risk to  
be hurt by a latter update and doesn't need any texhash or mktexlsr,  
but it's for a single user's use. If there are other users in your  
system, they are not concerned. It works well, I've just checked it  
for another map file :-)------------------------- Info --------------------------
