Two things:

Did you look at the thread from July 28-29 at:


I successfully installed these fonts and I know almost nothing about  
installing fonts for LaTeX. :-)

In addition, please don't start a new thread by replying to a message  
from a different thread. It messes up everything in threaded mail  
clients (e.g., Apple's Mail).

Thank you.
