Dear Peter

Apologies, but if you mean that what I am doing is "quatsch", then I  
accept. I am not lying. What happened is as follows: I installed  
MnSymbol and it worked. After many attempts to get MinionPro to work  
I decided that maybe something has gone wrong in the system. In fact,  
I even managed to get both working on MiKTeX. You see, I have been a  
Windows user for many years and am also new to tex.  So as is usual  
with Windows apps, if nothing works uninstall and start again.

As for Time Machine: I don't have it, I'm have 10.4.

I currently have the files in:


The map file is MinionPro.map and is currently located in:


I attach the proof below. What is interesting is that in the error  
message it is written 'Minion.map'. Where is this coming from because  
it is MinionPro.map.

I also send proof of the location of the tfm files.
