BaseTeX with TeXShop

Postby elim » Sat May 19, 2012 5:16 pm

I'm looking for a small TeX package for OS X Lion.

I found BaseTeX and TeXShop solution which looks fit my preference since I just don't like 1.8Gb total solutions of MacTeX.

But I got errors for unicode content with BaseTeX, even simply compile the sample file shipped with BaseTeX in its documentation BaseTeX.pdf (see compiling output below).

I installed the fonts needed, but the errors still there. I'm googling around, no solution found. See below for the compiler output.
  1. ...

  32. Output written on BaseTex1.pdf (1 page).

Any help is much appreciated. Thanks.

Which fonts, and how did you install them? Because there seems to be a metric file missing:

Font EU1/lmr/m/n/10=[lmroman10-regular]:mapping=tex-text at 10.0pt not loadable: Metric (TFM) file or installed font not found.

I found the msg below from web and so installed Latin Modern Roman using font book to the collection Modern. I don't know what else I can do though...

This message tells you that fontspec does not receive the requested font from the Mac OS X font service.

Check with Font Book („Schriftsammlung“) whether the Latin Modern fonts are known to the system. If not, then create a new library in Font Book and then add the fonts! Add don't add the PostScript Type 1 fonts when XeTeX deals with OpenType features! Finally make the library and its fonts active.

Apple once provided its Font Tools suite. It can still be downloaded and used – you just need PowerPC hardware or a Mac OS X in which Rosetta works. No Lion...
