My fonts are in the appropriate locations of ~/Library/texmf. And
upmap.cfg is in ~/Library/web2c. I edited it to delete the superfluous
stuff, as you said to do. I deleted ~/Library/texlive/2012. I run
"updmap" and get output:
updmap is using the following updmap.cfg files (in precedence order):
MacHD/Users/murray/Library/texlive/2012/) failed, goodbye:
The following minimal .tex file processes OK:
Here is some text. And here is some math:
However, including trying to modify font characteristics -- using the
[12pt] option to the documentclass, or using \large, etc., causes
compilation to fail with the same sort of error as before:
kpathsea: Running mktexpk --mfmode / --bdpi 600 --mag 1+70/600 --dpi
gsftopk: fatal: map file `psfonts.map
' not found.
mktexpk: don't know how to create bitmap font for hlcrv.
mktexpk: perhaps hlcrv is missing from the map file.
Moreover, merely putting \emph or \textbf or \texsf around some text,
although it does allow compilation, causes no change in the output to
italic, bold, or serif, respectively!
Note: Same kind of compilation error still for MathTimePro 2. Surely I
should _not_ want to include a map file for belleek in my updmap.cfg: I
have the actual MathTime Pro 2 Type 1 fonts, and support files,
installed (in the appropriate ~/Library/texmf locations).
Is there anything I should do in order to undo having run "sudo updmap"
(contrary to what you had, indeed, explicitly said -- I did it because I
was getting the Permission denied when I ran just "updmap")?
