My fight with the fonts continues, I think I managed to debug most of my
problems. However, I found out that my TeXLive installation seems to lack
some of the very basic postscript font files (i.e they do not exist on my
computer) and thus I still cannot install all the fonts mentioned in the
type-tmf.bat file (of which I now have a version that really works with
latest TeXLive+Windows, if somebody is interested).
The TeXfont manual says (p. 4, under "Generating metrics") "Installation
here comes down to copying the afm and pfb files, as well as generating
the tfm and vf files." This sentence leads me to believe that I cannot
generate the missing pfb files myself out of something else, so where can
I find them?
I lack the following:
uhvb8an.pfb, uhvbi8a.pfb, uhvr8an.pfb, uhvri8a.pfb, uhvri8an.pfb
(No wonder Helvetica has been giving me gray hairs all the way through!)
bit/charter (NOT bitstrea/charter on TeXLive):
bchb8a.pfb, bchbi8a.pfb, bchr8a.pfb, bchri8a.pfb
ubkb8a.pfb, ubkbi8a.pfb, ubkr8a.pfb, ubkri8a.pfb
I seem to have all the .afm files for these fonts, just the .pfb:s are
totally missing - any ideas of where I could get them and how?
For the record: the combination I use just now is WinXP+TeXLive 7+(newest)
ConTeXt, but I think the problem originates from TeXLive 7 full
installation and is not system dependent.
Thank you for any help,
