Re: arfonts package can't find fonts

Yes, I got the error message that says the file already exists.

I deleted the link then forced the ln call as you instructed me to do, then ran pdflatex from the console but to no avail.

Here's the output:

well, you cannot get this message compiling the code from your original post, simply because there's no usage of bold+italic...

The real name seems to be `ae_almohanad_boldItalitalic.pfb' in this case, so you could try
  1. ln -s `kpsewhich ae_almohanad_boldItalitalic.pfb` ae_AlMohanad_boldItalic.pfb

In any case you should contact the maintainer of the arabi package about these discrepancies between mapped and real file names.
