Description Bob T. 2008-02-27 09:09:44 EST
Description of problem:

If one specifies pdftexDownloadBase14 false in updmap.cfg, the pdftex.map should
have "fontflags" for the base 14 fonts; otherwise warning messages
are generated:

pdfTeX warning: pdflatex: No flags specified for non-embedded font
`Times-Roman' (ptmr8r) (I'm using 34): fix your map entry.

Font flags are described in the pdftex manual.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. use any of the base 14 fonts (Times, Helvetica, ...) in a document
2. process using pdflatex
Actual results:

Warning messages.

Expected results:

No warning messages.

Additional info:

The appropriate pdftex_ndl14.map entries would be

ptmr8r Times-Roman 34 "TeXBase1Encoding ReEncodeFont" <8r.enc

ptmb8r Times-Bold 262178 "TeXBase1Encoding ReEncodeFont" <8r.enc

ptmbi8r Times-BoldItalic 262242 "TeXBase1Encoding ReEncodeFont" <8r.enc

ptmri8r Times-Italic 98 "TeXBase1Encoding ReEncodeFont" <8r.enc

phvr8r Helvetica 32 "TeXBase1Encoding ReEncodeFont" <8r.enc

phvb8r Helvetica-Bold 262176 "TeXBase1Encoding ReEncodeFont" <8r.enc

phvbo8r Helvetica-BoldOblique 262240 "TeXBase1Encoding ReEncodeFont" <8r.enc

phvro8r Helvetica-Oblique 96 "TeXBase1Encoding ReEncodeFont" <8r.enc

Possibly the ptmr8y etc. lines should be similarly modified; I don't know what
they're for.
Comment 1 Bob T. 2008-02-27 11:16:34 EST
Additional revisions for Courier, Dingbat and Symbol fonts:

pcrb8r Courier-Bold  262179 "TeXBase1Encoding ReEncodeFont" <8r.enc
pcrbo8r Courier-BoldOblique  262243 "TeXBase1Encoding ReEncodeFont" <8r.enc
pcrr8r Courier 35 "TeXBase1Encoding ReEncodeFont" <8r.enc
pcrro8r Courier-Oblique  99 "TeXBase1Encoding ReEncodeFont" <8r.enc

Comment 2 Bob T. 2008-02-27 11:38:09 EST
The map file that should be corrected is


which belongs to the texlive-texmf-dvips-2007 package.
Comment 3 Jindrich Novy 2008-03-01 07:18:29 EST
Thanks for the fontflags descriptions. May I ask how did you acquire them?
Comment 4 Bob T. 2008-03-01 08:49:58 EST
Created attachment 296452 [details]
.tex file to test the base 14 pdf fonts

When processed by pdflatex, warning messages will say which fontflags are
assumed if not provided by pdftex.map.
Comment 5 Bob T. 2008-03-13 15:38:00 EDT
To be fixed upstream (texlive):

 >|After some discussion with Martin and Hartmut, the result was that the
 >|best approach would be for pdftex *not* to warn about the flags missing
 >|for the "base14" fonts when unembedded, since it already knows exactly
 >|what flags to use.  (It's rather nontrivial to add the flags to the map
 >|file(s), due to all the tools involved.)  This will be in the next
 >|pdftex release.
 >|However, it will (as I understand it) continue to warn about any other
 >|fonts which are unembedded without flags.  There are none such in TeX
 >|Live, as far as I know.
