Has anyone here used the comicsans package? I think I followed the  
installation instructions, but I'm getting an error when typesetting:

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

I grabbed the fonts comic.ttf and comicbd.ttf from a Windows machine  
and they are readable by Font Book, so I am not sure why they are not
