I got ttf2tfm compiled and coud convert a true type font ( converted from mac to win via ttconverter ) into a vf and a tfm file. I put these to files into the txfm/fonts/vf and texfm/fonts/tfm directories. But pdftex does not recognize them if I call pdftex fonttest. ttf2tfm made also a map file but i don't know where to put it in. I looked at http://www.radamir.com/tex/ttf-tex.htm but I have neither an texmf/ttf2tfm/base/ directory  nor a texmf/pdftex/base dir, where I could copy the encoding and map files.

I think that the equivalent of 'base' directories in miktex are 'config' directories in teTeX. But using either 'base' or 'config' for the directory name doesn't help me; I can get pdftex to 'accept' the font via TeXShop, but the characters are all squares, squished together. As if it can't find the font file itself, and doesn't know the width (or is getting the width wrong).

Has anyone used a truetype font with TeXShop and teTeX on Mac OS X?
