Hi Radhakrishnan,

Thank you very much for instructions on copying files.. I have not
been able to locate a few files though. Can you please let me know
how/what I missed these?

I found these on my machine..I wasn't looking in the right place..

The readme that comes along with Wikner's fonts does not mention .pfb
files. Looks like I have to create them using some commnad? Can you
tell me what I should do ?

I didn't find any *.fd files at all..

> copy the *.map file to:
>   $TEXMF/dvips/config

Couldn't find any .map files either.

Thanks a lot!
