The font 'rmtmi.pfb' is missing, even though 'locate' finds several
rmtmi-related font files ... just not this particular one!

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.latex caro
2.dvips caro

Actual Results:  [kelley@Intrusion kelley]$ dvips caro
This is dvipsk 5.86 p1.5d Copyright 1996-2001 ASCII
based on dvipsk 5.86 Copyright 1999 Radical Eye Software

<texc.pro><8r.enc><texps.pro>. <rmtmi.pfb>This is DVIPS, t1part module 
rmtmi.pfb: No such file or directory

Do you know when this last worked?
Comment 3 Dan Kelley 2001-08-03 13:06:21 EDT
Hello.  I don't when/if it worked last, actually.  I'm pretty sure I've made 
this work in the past, but I'm not sure if was on my intel machine [on which 
I've had pretty much each of the RH versions, over time] or on a solaris box 
that I used before switching to RH.

Since it's such a simple test-case, one might hope for help from some of the 
Tex/LaTeX discussion groups, but I figured that you folks at RH would have a 
special interest in getting this to work, since having a solid LaTeX, 
combining all the various components, is something that one disto can offer 
over another.  [Note: the test works perfectly in my friend's debian box.]

Let me know if I can help.  I did a _lot_ of web surfing to try to find an 
answer, but I didn't turn up much that made sense to me.

Comment 4 Tim Waugh 2001-08-03 18:59:46 EDT
Okay, which version of Debian does your friend have?

(If I can compare a working teTeX with a broken one I stand a better chance of
fixing it.)
Comment 5 Dan Kelley 2001-08-07 16:17:34 EDT
Sorry, the person who told me that it worked on debian is taking some time off
and cannot be reached.  (A new baby arrived!).  However, I found the email, and
have pasted the guts of it below.  It _might_ help. If not, I probably can't do
much more investigation on the debian end.  You folks must have a box with
Debian on it, to check for these sorts of issues, right?  :-)

OK, jokes aside, the below is what my friend sent, from a Debian box:

Okay, it's a newer dvipsk (5.86d vs 5.86).  Perhaps it's that.
Comment 7 Tim Waugh 2001-11-08 06:25:05 EST
(I can't even get this to work with TeXLive..)
Comment 8 Tim Waugh 2001-11-10 12:42:05 EST
A suggested work-around: use
