Hi, you need the Mathematica fonts (Math1 here). If you have just one picture the toolkit from: http://www.mathsource.com/Content/WhatsNew/0210-519 may help you. If you use ghostscript you should add the Mathematica font directory to the GS_LIBPATH variable. If you are using an actual TeX, dvips scan the fonts in pictures and you should use the fontmap from my virtual font package from http://phong.informatik.uni-leipzig.de/~kuska/ In Mathematica 4.0 the font package is included and you need only look in your Mathematica tree for the wolfram.map file that neds dvips.
