Hello oh knowledgeable ones,

on my Leopard-testbed (external HD via Archive&Install, preserve  
users) I have difficulties to use the GTMACFONTS.
I have installed Tex via iinstaller (full) and was asked to confirm  
the paper-size only. I run a MBP 2.33 GH 2GB Ram (German System  
Leopard 10.5.1, all updates applied)

In TexShop I get the following error-code:

!pdfTeX error: /usr/texbin/pdflatex (file Didot.ttf): cannot open  
TrueType font
  file for reading
  ==> Fatal error occurred, no output PDF file produced!

I can find (while "Calvin" is the external HD with my Leopard  
installation as well as my Tex-Installation)






has NOT been created ("Folder doesn't exist)

While I have:

Calvin/Previous Systems.localized/2007-11-27_1045/usr/local/gwTeX/ 

I have run iinstaller several times (Expert/configuration mode) and  
selected all available checkboxes in the configuration-dialog.

Now what can I do? I planned to move to Leopard this week and am  
afraid to face the same difficulties.

Is there a safe way to copy the files from my "previous system" to the  
new one?

Thanks a bunch,

Rolf Schmolling
