How to install fonts?

Postby alvamabel2018 » Thu Apr 19, 2018 7:44 pm

Hello. I have the following problem:

I want to use the TIPA package for phonetic characters in LaTeX. I am follwing the installation guide in the TIPA manual, and it looks to me like I am doing it correctly, but it sure as hell doesn't work. The fonts don't display like they're supposed to. No matter what I type in a \textipa command (used for displaying phonetic characters), I just get what looks like an apostrophe and a lambda.

I apologize for the poor description, but it's hard for me to provide more info, because I really don't know what I am doing. I am just following the installation guide. At least I think I am. I've placed a bunch of STY and FD and MAP and MF and DEF and TFM and PFB files in my TeX folder, but it doesn't work.

Can anyone help?

Hey I don't know if you ever found a solution to this, but I used .tff fonts and XeLaTeX instead, which was much easier. It let me create such monstrosities as this: https://files.daviddaily.dev/LaTeX/Commie%20UwUfesto/Hell.pdf using the Hellvetica font.
