I've installed MacTeX2012. I'm running as a user with admin privileges.
However, I cannot successfully process any documents that use my local
fonts, installed in ~/Library/texmf.
But I get errors like the following (for a lucida test document):
kpathsea: Running mktexpk --mfmode / --bdpi 600 --mag 0+294/600 --dpi
gsftopk: fatal: map file `psfonts.map
' not found.
mktexpk: don't know how to create bitmap font for hlhr8r.
mktexpk: perhaps hlhr8r is missing from the map file.
kpathsea: Appending font creation commands to missfont.log.
!pdfTeX error: /usr/texbin/pdflatex (file hlhr8r): Font hlhr8r at 294
I _do_ have the requisite updmap.cfg file in ~/Library/texmf/web2c, with
entries such as:
Map lucida.map #localtexmf/dvips/lucida/lucida.map
Map mtpro2 #localtexmf/dvips/mtpro2/mtpro2.map
Per what I understand the instructions in "TeXLive2012Changes.pdf" (H.
Schulz, 2012/06/11) to say, I did run
and then, since I had not updated anything with the 2012 TeXLive Utility
or set its preference to include "Automatically enable fonts in my home
directory", I did also run:
But that didn't seem to do anything because I get "Permission denied":
goodbye: Permission denied
So I next ran
and that created new map files but said it couldn't find the requisite
map files, including lucida.map (precisely what was needed for the test
lucida document) and asked whether I had run mktexlsr.
So I tried to run mktexlsr, but I got a series of "no write permission"
errors. So of course I then ran
which updated /usr/local/texlive/2011/../texmf-local/ls-R....
when that tries
Still document would not compile. I tried again
but still no luck in compilation.
What's wrong and how to fix?
