Hmmm, didn't work for some reason :(

I get:

kpathsea: Running mktextfm tq24
/home/tl/TeX/texmf/web2c/mktexnam: Could not map typeface abbreviation q2 for tq24.
/home/tl/TeX/texmf/web2c/mktexnam: Need to update 
mktextfm: Running mf-nowin -progname=mf \mode:=ljfour; mag:=1; 
nonstopmode; input tq24
This is METAFONT, Version 2.71828 (Web2C 7.5.3)

kpathsea: Running mktexmf tq24
! I can't find file `tq24'.

I don't know where "q2" comes from. The tiqwah.map file contains no 
mention of "q2":

tq6 TeX-tq6 <tq6.pfb
tq7 TeX-tq7 <tq7.pfb
tq8 TeX-tq8 <tq8.pfb
tq9 TeX-tq9 <tq9.pfb
tq10 TeX-tq10 <tq10.pfb
tq11 TeX-tq11 <tq11.pfb
tq12 TeX-tq12 <tq12.pfb
tq14 TeX-tq14 <tq14.pfb
tq17 TeX-tq17 <tq17.pfb
tq24 TeX-tq24 <tq24.pfb
tq20 TeX-tq20 <tq20.pfb
tq36 TeX-tq36 <tq36.pfb

which worked fine on TeX Live 2003.

Sebastian recommended using texmf-var/web2c/updmap.cfg and searching
archives for possible clues, which I am doing at the moment but still have
not found a way to do this. I also learnt the "user-friendly" way of 
using "updmap --edit" but it didn't make any difference either.

Kind regards
