Description Philip Hirschhorn 2000-12-15 06:37:38 UTC
I have tetex set up to use a local texmf tree /usr/share/texmf.local, in
which I have a font (in pk form) not a part of tetex.  When I give a
"dvips" command directly, the font is found and used correctly.

I also have /etc/printcap configured by printtool to print to a remote
postscript printer, so the input filter calls dvips for dvi files. 
However, when I give an "lpr filename.dvi" command, the font in my local
texmf tree isn't found, and cmr10 is substituted instead.

Comment 1 Philip Hirschhorn 2000-12-22 04:24:19 UTC
Resolved!  I updated tetex to the latest version of the distribution and the
problem disappeared.  (Of course, I still have no idea why the problem was there
in the first place.)

I'm closing this. Reopen it if your problem returns.
