When I try to typeset one of my tex files using pdflatex (Version 3.141592-1.21a-2.2), mktexpk gives me error 
messages such as the one I attach to in the end of this email.  I have tried to resolve this problem, and I can't find an 
answer yet -- why it says "Mismatched"?  Isn't ljfour supposed to be 600 dpi?  

If anybody could give me any suggestions as to where I should look for or what seems to be going wrong?  

Thanks in advance!
