The correct pathname would be: /usr/local/texlive/2011/texmf-dist/fonts/misc/xetex/fontmapping. Since your files are local additions to the TeX distribution it's better you save them in


sudo mkdir -p /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local/fonts/misc/xetex/fontmapping/dev2tel	# for easier reading
sudo cp </path/to/your/file.map> /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local/fonts/misc/xetex/fontmapping/dev2tel
sudo teckit_compile /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local/fonts/misc/xetex/fontmapping/dev2tel/<your file.map> -o /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local/fonts/misc/xetex/fontmapping/dev2tel/<your file.tec>
sudo mktexlsr /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local

If the PDF output is still quite empty we'd need the source file and the LOG file from the XeLaTeX run.



Theory and practice are the same, in theory, but, in practice, they are different.
