Hi all,

i'm using iTeXMac and tetex (installed with i-installer) and tried to 
install some Type1 fonts from Bitstream. A thing i did several times 
with CMacTeX on my old MacOS 9 system, so i know which file has to be 
where and such. I copied all files (tfm,vf,fd,map,pfb) in the right 
places inside my local texmf tree. I ran texhash as root and i tried 
to enable the maps via

  'sudo updmap --enable MixedMap bsb.map'

without any error message. But if i try to compile a LaTeX file using 
this new font pdftex is complaining that the used font couldn't be 
found :-(

Warning: pdflatex (file bsbr0): Font bsbr0 at 600 not found

latex->dvips works fine, i.e. it uses the right font. I thought the 
map type 'MixedMap' stands for dvips and pdftex but actually it 
doesn't make any difference which type i choose. I searched in the 
tetex docs for any hints about the difference but couldn't find it. 
Maybe i'm too blind to see or missed the obvious and at the moment 
i'm just confused 8-( Any suggestions to help me out?

Thanks and best regards

The best part about hating people is that i never run out of great ideas.
