More or less. For example, in


says ``... when installing on TeTeX 3.0, instead of following the  
directions given and putting psfonts.mkr2 into your psfonts.map, the  
correct procedure is to run:
updmap --enable MixedMap /path/to/psfonts.mkr2''

What you really need in these days is

sudo updmap-sys --enable Map=psfonts.mkr2

(I'm not sure if it is a mixed map; from what I see in


it looks to me as map, not mixed map, but I may be wrong. What I'm  
*really* sure is that you need `` sudo updmap-sys ...'', not only ``  
updmap ...''.)

You have to tell us where have you installed all the files, including  

I would advise you to join the TeX on Mac OS X mailing list:


You certainly will find there people who have installed the package  
in the MacTeX distribution.
