LaTeX

After a fresh install of Fedora, I sometimes see the error “pdfTeX error (font expansion): auto expansion is only possible with scalable fonts” when running pdflatex. Installing the texlive-collection-fontsextra package collection seems to fix this.

The following error is fixed by installing texlive-updmap-map:

kpathsea: Running mktexpk --mfmode / --bdpi 600 --mag 1+57/600 --dpi 657 ptmri8r
gsftopk: fatal: map file `psfonts.map' not found.
mktexpk: don't know how to create bitmap font for ptmri8r.
mktexpk: perhaps ptmri8r is missing from the map file.
kpathsea: Appending font creation commands to missfont.log.
 )
!pdfTeX error: pdflatex (file ptmri8r): Font ptmri8r at 657 not found
 ==> Fatal error occurred, no output PDF file produced!
make: *** [Makefile:48: 02_summary.pdf] Error 1
