Just a shot in the dark: I've been using texfont a lot these last weeks and have experienced that it will give you the error message "no afm files found" when, in fact, the error is somewhere else (in my case, there was a typo in the encoding used). I would suggest you run texfont on one font file at a time, don't use the *-shortcut for the time being. Moreover, are you sure that your system is finding texnansi.enc? What does
kpsewhich texnansi.enc
Finally: are the afm files in good standing? How did you produce them?

Best, good luck

TeXFont 1.5 - ConTeXt / PRAGMA ADE 2000-2001 (STILL BETA)

The TeXfont I'm running is 2.2.1! (I know I added a little bit of .ttf processing code after 2.1)

Ok, I've got 2.2.1 running...

I tried things manually without the --pattern option and got a


If this file was generated, that's a good sign that the files were installed. What do you see in: (texlocal)\fonts\tfm\microsoft\times ?

ok, there are tfm files there, produced by the beta TeXFont, in TeXLive\texmf-local\...

But now I can't seem to repeat this with the latest version, and TeXFont does
not find the afm files. As I told Taco:

--vendor=microsoft --collection=timesnewroman --encoding=texnansi
--pattern=times*.afm --rootlist=C:[...]\system_fonts

TeXFont 2.2.1 - ConTeXt / PRAGMA ADE 2000-2004

mktexlsr: Updating c:/TeXLive/texmf-local/ls-R...
mktexlsr: Done.
       encoding vector : texnansi
           vendor name : microsoft
           source path : .
       font collection : timesnewroman
       texmf font root : c:/texlive/texmf-local
       pdftex map file : texnansi-microsoft-timesnewroman.map
      processing files : all in pattern times*.afm
    locating afm files : using otf files
    processing aborted : no afm files found

But the afm files are right there in \system_fonts!?!

Any further suggestions will be appreciated!
