\usepackage{lmodern} instead ;-)
I know there's no better solution, or LM fonts would use the same
TeX names in map files...

In texmf/web2c/updmap.cfg which is just copied from CD/DVD during
installation, but not in texmf-var/web2c/. Seems that install-pkg.sh
doesn't know how to update proper updmap.cfg :(

updmap --enable MixedMap cm-super-t2a.map
updmap --enable MixedMap cm-super-t1.map
