MiKTeX 2.9 Problem with cm-super

Postby M.A » Sun Dec 12, 2010 10:16 pm

Hi everybody,

I have installed before few days MiKTeX 2.9 with cm-super package. However, it seems that pdflatex doesn't use the outline fonts properly with T1 encoding
Running the following tex file:
  1. \documentclass{article}
  2. \usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
  3. \begin{document}
  4. \textbf{\textsc {Test}}
  5. \end{document}

will produce a pdf using T3 fonts!!
I made sure that cm-super is installed properly by using verify switch in the mpm (package manager) command.

Here is the log file:

It is worth noting that everything was fine with MiKTeX 2.8.

Is the problem only with bold small caps? Or with anything else?

Thanks for reply.
It is with everything when you use T1 encoding. I used bold small caps in the example because it can't be generated with OT1 encoding.

I got the solution from the miktex-mailing list
It can be solved by updating pdftex.map by running
initexmf --mkmaps
