Thank you so much, dear CVR. updmap didn't help. So, I then did the
second command and got the .ps file, which I converted into pdf without

This is so important for me since I do all my writing in LaTeX. It is so
convenient because I can save all my references and other such details
as comments in the .tex file itself.

Thanks and warmest regards,
