During the gwTeX installation, the various OS X fonts used by
gtamacfonts are converted from the suitcases inside /Library/Fonts/
and /System/Library/Fonts/ to .ttf format by applying Fondu, and the
result of the conversion is put inside /usr/local/gwTeX/texmf.gwtex/
fonts/truetype/gtamacfonts/. This has to be done at install time
because of licensing issues: the fonts are part of OS X and cannot be
In order to know exactly what steps need to be taken, and assuming
you have basic knowledge of the Perl scripting language, you can
inspect texlive.configure within the gwTeX i-Package (i.e. within the
texlive.ii2 bundle) and see exactly what it does.
Alternatively, you can inspect the directory /usr/local/gwTeX/
texmf.gwtex/ of a working gwTeX installation, and copy every bit
located within a gtamacfonts subdirectory to a matching location
within /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local/, and then take the usual steps:
sudo -H updmap-sys --enable Map gtamacfonts(-atl).map
The parentheses () above were added by me, to point out that I don't
know which map file fragments need to be used: gtamacfonts.map or
gtamacfonts-atl.map or both.
Hope this helps,
