### Gentium source could not be found

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.

Here is my minimal example:

\documentclass[a5paper,11pt]{scrbook} \usepackage{lipsum} \usepackage[ngerman]{babel} \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}\usepackage[T1]{fontenc} \usepackage{gentium} \begin{document}\chapter{Gentium}Test\section{Gentium}\lipsum \end{document}

I'm using MiKTex 2.9.6643-x64 and TeXstudio 2.12.8

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!
