[Tuglist] Installing `MathTime' fonts

Dear Sri Radhakrishnan,

Thank you for your valuable advice.  

I installed txfonts (for MikTeX v2.1) following the instructions given in the documentation.  
Though the ps and pdf files were generated successfully, gsview (ver. 4) didn't display 
anything on the screen and acrobat reader (ver. 4) said, "There was an error opening this 
document .  The file does not exist" [YAP(ver. 0.98n), the dvi previewer for MikTeX, displayed it 
correctly].   I could view them with the respective viewers only after
copying *.pfb files of adobe and Ghostscript (ver. 6.5) to the type1 fonts directory of TeX (I went 
through one of the earlier mails in tuglist regarding your solutions to some problems with dvips 
and txfonts and guessed that it could also be the solution to my problem).
I donot know if all MikTeX users (and possibly all RedHat Linux users also, as the earlier mail 
was from a RedHat Linux user) should follow this procedure.

Also I am now getting these annoying warnings like :

Warning: PDFLATEX (file txr.map): entry for `rtxptmb' already exists, duplicate
s ignored ...

written all over the log file.  How should I fix it ? Kindly advice.

With regards

Yours sincerely,
