Hi Jordan,
since I have produced the virtual fonts, I'm resposible for that. I have
installed the fonts on several MikTeX installations and all works fine.
So to Your questions:
1.) Yap can't display PostScript fonts. The next release of MikTeX will
be able to
convert type 1 fonts into TeX's pk format. 2.) I recommend that You
unpack the archive with the fonts
(You can download the latest version from my home page
http://www.mpae.gwdg.de/~kuska ) on a seperate texmf tree.
Edit the miktex.ini file in
texmf\miktex\config
and find the dvips section. Extend the DVIPSHEADERS by something like
[dvips]
## Where Dvips searches for header files.
DVIPSHEADERS=.;%R\dvips//;%R\fonts\type1//;C:\Math3.0\SystemFiles\Fonts\Type
1;
now dvips may find the fonts for inclusion (if You don't download it to
the printer)
- than You must tell the
configure program
texmf\miktex\config\configure --root-directories <miktex
root>;<mathfont texmf tree>
and You must force to update the file name data base by
texmf\miktex\config\configure --update-fndb
You may copy the wolfram.map file into the miktex\dvips\init directory
and add
this map file to the dvips configuration.
2.1) Setting up ghostscript is a differnt task. And has nothing to do
with the TeX fonts
if You use the map, that copys the type 1 fonts to the postscript
file all works fine
if You uses the map for printer resident fonts You must add the
Mathematica
Type1 font directory to the GS_LIB_PATH (via environment and/or
command line)
and edit the FONTMAP file in the ghostscript directory.
Contact me if Your problems persist. Hope that helps
Jens
