I note that these directions put the MnSymbol files in /usr/local/share, which is, therefore, what I did. The log, though, indicates that it's using MnSymbol.map in /usr/local/texlive/2009.

Howdy,

I don't know if this is what is causing the problem but at first glance it appears that you have run updmap rather than updmap-sys at some point and now you are seeing TeX pick up your private map file in ~/.texlive2009/texmf-var/. Please try to remove the .texlive2009 directory (you may have to use sudo if it is owned by root which is what would happen if you ran sudo updmap). This is somewhat of a guess.

Good Luck,

Herb Schulz
