 Winston Chang 2002-02-20 19:51:39 EST From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.8) Gecko/20020205 Description of problem: When running pdflatex on any latex file, it gives warnings regarding entries in pdftex.map. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): tetex-latex-1.0.7-38.2 How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Create a latex file like this: \documentclass{article} \begin{document} \section{foo} bar \end{document} 2. Run pdftex on the file. Actual Results: The following errors are given: Warning: pdflatex (file /usr/share/texmf/dvips/config/pdftex.map): invalid entry for rtxphvbo': SlantFont/ExtendFont can be used only with embedded T1 fonts Warning: pdflatex (file /usr/share/texmf/dvips/config/pdftex.map): invalid entry for rtxphvro': SlantFont/ExtendFont can be used only with embedded T1 fonts Warning: pdflatex (file /usr/share/texmf/dvips/config/pdftex.map): invalid entry for rtxptmbo': SlantFont/ExtendFont can be used only with embedded T1 fonts Warning: pdflatex (file /usr/share/texmf/dvips/config/pdftex.map): invalid entry for rtxptmro': SlantFont/ExtendFont can be used only with embedded T1 fonts Expected Results: No error should have occurred. Additional info: Documents usually look fine in xpdf, gv, and Acrobat Reader, but printing certain resulting documents from Acrobat on Mac OS X results in a document that uses Courier in place of Computer Modern in some places. The previous example doesn't even show up in Acrobat Reader. I haven't checked printing from other platforms. The printers I used were an HP 4500 and an Apple Laserwriter 4/600 PS. When using latex, dvips, and ps2pdf, this problem doesn't occur, even when forcing it to use type 1 fonts. The nature of the problem is described at http://tug.org/pipermail/pdftex/2002-January/002119.html Winston Chang 2002-02-21 15:41:42 EST In reproduction step 2, it should say "Run pdflatex on the file" instead of pdftex. Tim Waugh 2002-02-25 11:47:28 EST I've managed to get rid of the Helvetica warnings by following the advice in that mail, but I'm not sure exactly what the lines should look like for Times Roman. Winston Chang 2002-02-25 11:58:06 EST That message says: ------- You can either use the close approximation to it that comes with ghostscript, and have a map file line something like ptmro8r NimbusRomNo9L-Regu "0.167 SlantFont" , would know better? Tim Waugh 2002-02-25 12:09:01 EST (I have already emailed him to ask for more details.) I favour the first method if it is possible, since it makes for smaller PDF files. But really, any solution would be welcome. :-)  Tim Waugh 2002-02-26 03:40:06 EST `(Putting a note here so I don't forget.) Apparently this is the correct line: rtxptmro NimbusRomNo9L-Regu "0.167 SlantFont"
