as I already mentioned: this file plays no role. At least yet. It was already found.

Other fonts where also found: /usr/local/texlive/2012/../texmf-local/fonts/truetype/microsoft/comicsans/comic.ttf for example. Why is a PostScript Type 1 font file also needed? Can you locate this one? I presume: no! Because your locate command looks for file names containing the string "rcomic8r". So locate should list rcomic8r.tfm, rcomic8r.pfb, maybe more. Your error can also be that the PostScript Type 1 font file is rcomic8a.pfb… The "raw" PostScript Type 1 fonts are usually in the Adobe standard encoding, 8a.
