  Hello all,

 I'm installing a new etruscan font (Peter Wilson's from CTAN).
After downloading the ``etruscan" directory I tried to follow the
(sometimes conflicting) guidelines in the TeX FAQ and the README file
in the ``etruscan" directory.
Here are precisely the commands I executed :

  1) cd /usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.local
  2) mkdir tex/generic/etruscan/
  3) cp ~/Documents/LaTeX/etruscan/*.sty tex/generic/etruscan/
  and cp ~/Documents/LaTeX/etruscan/*.fd tex/generic/etruscan/
  4) cd fonts
  5) mkdir afm, and mkdir afm/public, and mkdir afm/public/archaic
  6) cp ~/Documents/LaTeX/etruscan/*.afm afm/public/archaic/
  7) mkdir type1/public/archaic
  8) cp ~/Documents/LaTeX/etruscan/*.pfb type1/public/archaic/
  9)  mkdir tfm/public/archaic
  8) cp ~/Documents/LaTeX/etruscan/*.tfm tfm/public/archaic/
  10) mkdir map/pdftex/etruscan
  11) cp ~/Documents/LaTeX/etruscan/*.map map/pdftex/etruscan/
  12) updmap --enable Map map/pdftex/etruscan/etruscan.map

  12) mkdir map/dvips/etruscan
  13) cp ~/Documents/LaTeX/etruscan/*.map map/dvips/etruscan/
  14) updmap --enable Map map/dvips/etruscan/etruscan.map
  15) updmap

  This runs without error messages, but when I compile the .tex file
the characters displayed are ordinary Latin instead of the etruscan ones
they should be, and the console gives the following warnings :

 Warning: /usr/local/teTeX/bin/powerpc-apple-darwin-current/pdflatex (file
): kpathsea: Running mktexpk --mfmode / --bdpi 600 --mag 1+264/600 --dpi
864 etr10
mktexpk: don't know how to create bitmap font for etr10.
Font etr10 at 600 not found

Warning: /usr/local/teTeX/bin/powerpc-apple-darwin-current/pdflatex (file
): Font etr10 at 864 not found

  What am I doing wrong ?


NB : I'm working with TexShop 2.03
