Gentium source could not be found

Postby ipc2002 » Sun May 20, 2018 11:28 am

Dear all,

I have following problem, I like to use the gentium package but I only got the error:

miktex-makemf did not succeed for the following reason: The ec-gentiumplus-italic source file could not be found
Sorry, but miktex-makepk did not succeed for the following reason: PK font ec-gentiumplus-italic could not be created.

Any ideas about that?

Here is my minimal example:

  1. \documentclass[a5paper,11pt]{scrbook}
  2.  
  3. \usepackage{lipsum}
  4.  
  5. \usepackage[ngerman]{babel}
  6.  
  7. \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
  8. \usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
  9.  
  10. \usepackage{gentium}
  11.  
  12. \begin{document}
  13. \chapter{Gentium}
  14. Test
  15. \section{Gentium}
  16. \lipsum
  17.  
  18. \end{document}


I'm using MiKTex 2.9.6643-x64 and TeXstudio 2.12.8

Thanks a lot in advance!

Mathias.

Hi Mathias,

welcome to the forum!

Try this - run at the command line (cmd):

updmap --admin

Hello Stefan,

thans for your advice. Your recommanded command ran without any error with admin privilages ... but still the same error with the missing source file :(.
I also tried to use the MiKTeX Console -> Task -> Refresh font map files ... but as well without success :/.

May any other idea or logfile I could share/check?

Thx and BR Mathias.

Stupid I'am ...
Its necessary to update also the file name database:
initexmf --admin --update-fndb
Works like charm now! Thanks a lot!
