The marvosym package was updated on 2006/05/11 to v2.1 and a note  
with that documentation says the internal font name was changed to  
umvs, thus the need for the umvs.tfm file.

Since I have the latest gwTeX update it appears that one of the  
marvosym.map files was updated and the other not and the new tfm file  
is not there.

I downloaded the latest marvosym package and installed it all into  
texmf.pkgs for now and it's all working correctly.

All in all the change from the older teTeX based i-package to the new  
TeX Live based gwTeX went quite smoothly. I planned ahead (with Bruno  
Voisin's very helpful remarks) and collected copies of all the fonts  
(type1, map, tfm, tex/latex, etc.), both commercial and free) I had  
installed in texmf.local in the teTeX based system. I even wrote a  
shell script to execute all the necessary updmap-sys commands, etc.  
Putting them in the right place in texmf.pkgs in gwTeX went smoothly  
(well, I had to augment the script with a few more things and then  
updated the script if I ever have to do it again) and I'm pretty  
happy after playing around quite a bit. The only other thing I ran  
into was some files I had put into my personal tree (~/Library/texmf/ 
tex/latex/...) that interfered with new versions in gwTeX.

Now, once I'm happily living with gwTeX is it ok to blow away the  
teTeX version by simply doing

cd /usr/local/
sudo rm -fr teTeX

and then deleting the symbolic link in /Library/? Anything else I  
need to do? Receipts (e.g., for tex.ii) to remove? Will the TeX  
Distribution Preference Pane in System Preferences update itself  

Good Luck,

Herb Schulz
