Initial Comment:
Hello,

Trying to get ttf fonts working both with dvips and
pdflatex I experimented with converting the ttf to
Type42 using fontforge, disassembling it via t1disasm
and creating a pfb with t1asm. The resulting pfb is
included via dvips and both ghostscript and distiller
can interpret it.
Unfortunately, pdflatex gives me the following error
trying to include the pfb: 
Error: pdftex (file FranklinGothic-Medium.pfb):
unexpected end of file
 ==> Fatal error occurred, the output PDF file is not
finished!

Cheers,
Michael

You may find the pfb, tfm, vf at
http://www.hft.ei.tum.de/mz/test_t42.zip

I suppose the error is due to pdftex trying to subset the
Type42 font. 

Cheers,
Michael

Please include some test files; at least the pfb is needed.
Also please login when commenting on this or any other bug.
