This is *very* interesting.

Before it started to work with the MAP files in Fink's teTeX, somehow  
these PK fonts were generated from the PS fonts, because there was no  
rule present that was mapping a TeX font name like pkur<font  
encoding> to a PostScript or TrueType font. I-Installer's teTeX is  
still missing the MAP file entries, so it assumes PK fonts are used –  
and finds them in your private TeX tree.

Since the PK fonts are bitmaps, optimised for a high resolution  
device (600 dpi), they can look on a low resolution screen (<100 dpi)  
a bit rough due to scaling. (This is not the merit of any pdfTeX  
simulation like simpdftex or its elder version altpdftex.)

As I mentioned yesterday: put your pku.map into i-Installer's local  
teTeX tree and run updmap for this system! This will make both  
systems more equal.

And both systems could share the standard fonts. 100 MB disk space or  
more ...



How many Microsoft engineers does it take to screw in a light-bulb?
They just redefine "dark" as the new standard.
