The following depends on whether you installed the fonts system-wide,  
in /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local/, or in your user account only, in  

And, in the second case, whether you're willing the global map files  
(such as psfonts.map) to be updated system-wide or in your user  
account; if you choose the latter possibility (global map files  
created in your user account), you'll have a non-standard setup,  
prone to provoke long and painless debugging in this list, and I  
strongly recommend against it. In the following I'll assume you want  
global map files updated system-wide.

Never ever do this. In Terminal:

- For a system-wide font install:

	sudo -H updmap-sys --enable Map mtpro2.map

- For a user-specific font install:

	sudo updmap-sys --enable Map mtpro2.map

You should never edit these files manually. See answer 1

After writing this I see that Gary Gray has posted more step-by-step  
instructions, and mentioned belleek.map which I had forgotten.

Hope this helps nonetheless,
