This file, above, might never be found, it's in a branch that's only  
searched for MF files.

This file will never be found. It is in a branch were only STY or CLS  
(or old TEX) files are searched. (You could delete both, but first  
check whether they have the same contents as this third one below.)

This looks much better.

According to this now it is working: the MAP file is found and it has  
entries for dvips or pdfTeX for the TeX font name, that point to a  
PFB font file (although no encoding is mentioned/used), and before  
this the VF and TFM files were found to compute the words and lines  
and paragraphs and pages from the text input.

Is the font really working? Do you see in a viewer or on paper the  
Greek text you've input in the TeX source? If not, than an ENC file  
for the font would be needed ...
