Having installed this package in the personal area makes it a bit  
useless. And this is true only for this particular case where you  
need to enable a MAP file fragment, namely MinionPro.map. Your  
personal setup probably has no useful updmap.cfg file, so when you  

	updmap --enable Map=MinionPro.map

TeX would find your MAP file and then see only MinionPro fonts mapped  
to TeX font names (or vice-versa). So its best to first copy the  
system's updmap.cfg into ~/.texlive2007/texmf-config/web2c, which  
first needs to be created:

	mkdir -p ~/.texlive2007/texmf-config/web2c

Then you could enable the MAP file fragment.

The dirty trick could be to invoke 'sudo updmap --enable  
Map=MinionPro.map' – which will make your private parts owned by  
root, unalterable.

Because you tried to enable Minion.map?



If you're not confused, you're not paying attention.
