Initial Comment:
After installation of MathPro 2 fonts (mtpro2), I am having problems concerning pdflatex. If I run Winedt/XeLatex/Miktex (Windows) or TexWorks/XeLateX/TexLive (Ubuntu), I have no problems (but only if I use latin1 encoding). See attached file. 

However, if I change to PdfLatex I run into problems using Texworks/PdfLatex/TexLive (Ubuntu): I get the following message:

This is pdfTeX, Version 3.1415926-1.40.10 (TeX Live 2009/Debian)
entering extended mode
LaTeX2e <2009/09/24>
Babel <v3.8l> and hyphenation patterns for english, usenglishmax, dumylang, noh

kpathsea: Running mktexpk --mfmode / --bdpi 600 --mag 4+0/600 --dpi 2400 mt2exf
mktexpk: don't know how to create bitmap font for mt2exf.
kpathsea: Appending font creation commands to missfont.log.
!pdfTeX error: /usr/bin/pdflatex (file mt2exf): Font mt2exf at 2400 not found
 ==> Fatal error occurred, no output PDF file produced!

Under Windows it is weird: I get the message that the system can't find the file it is running...

Many thanks, 
Hamilton Bueno
