[This question brings together issues from threads including http://tug.org/pipermail/texhax/2016-June/022316.html and http://tug.org/pipermail/macostex-archives/2014-August/052810.html.]

How with current LaTeX (TeXLive 2016 ) do I get all at once:

    (1) Adobe Times for normal text (along with italic, bold, and bold italic);
    (2) Adobe Courier for typewriter (along with italic, bold, and bold italic) ;
    (3) Adobe Helvetica for sans serif (along with italic, bold, and bold italic);
    (4) Adobe Small Caps for text small caps (along with bold); and
    (5) MathTimePro 2 for math?

I’m using the Adobe Times font files tir_____.pfb, etc.; Adobe Courier font files com_____.pfb, etc.; Adobe Helvetica font files hv______.pfb, etc.; 
and Adobe Small Caps font file tirsc___.pfb.

And I ran updmap after adding to my local config file ~/Library/texmf/web2c/updmap.cfg the entry:

      LW35 ADOBE

Examining the .pdf output from a test file in Adobe Reader reveals that the following in preamble takes care of (1) - (3) and (5), but NOT (4):


How can I add (4) to that?


(a) If I append to the preamble 


with the older version 1.29 of Michael Sharpe’s package newtxtext (as posted at https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/3825336/TeX/index.html), which is in my user's texmf, 
then I do get (4) Adobe Small Caps as well as (1) Adobe Times for text and (5) MathTime Pro2 for math. 
However, for typewriter I now get tx fonts t1xtt and for sans serif TeX Gyre Heros.

(b) If instead I use the current version 1.466 of Sharpe’s package, as distributed with TeXLive 2016 — removing the older version so as to force loading of the newer one, and omitting \usepackage{text comp} from the preamble because otherwise a  clash is generated — 
then I get NONE of the Adobe fonts but rather the various TeX GyreTermes for normal text (including for small caps), TeX Gyre Heros for sans seif, and tx fonts for typewriter. And MathTime Pro 2 for math.
