Here's what I have for mathtime pro 2 (I don't know if you need all of  

sudo mktexlsr
sudo -H updmap-sys --nohash --nomkmap --syncwithtrees
sudo -H updmap-sys --nohash --nomkmap --disable belleek.map
sudo -H updmap-sys --nohash --nomkmap --enable Map mt-yy.map
sudo -H updmap-sys --nohash --nomkmap --enable Map mt-plus.map
sudo -H updmap-sys --nohash --nomkmap --enable Map mtpro2.map
sudo -H updmap-sys

You don't need the mktexlsr line since things are in your personal  
texmf tree. You SHOULDN'T use the -H option since that wouldn't look  
into you personal texmf tree. If you want to produce a personal map  
file you don't need the sudo and use updmap rather than updmap-sys.

I've taken to putting all added fonts into /usr/local/texlive/texmf- 
local/ and using the system update. Then I can switch user to do  
testing and still have access to all of the fonts.

Good Luck,
