I have been watching this thread and meant to respond sooner. Any dvips which uses t1part for font subsetting is BROKEN with respect to font subsetting. Use the latest dvips from TeX Live 6.0, which uses the writet1 module from pdftex to take care of susetting. There are other bugs in dvips

I am using teTeX 1.0.7 and I don't have an adobe.map file. I do, however, have a file named ar-std-adobe-kb.map that has these lines in it: ptmb8r Times-Bold TeXBase1Encoding ReEncodeFont 8r.enc ptmb8a.pfb ptmbi8r Times-BoldItalic TeXBase1Encoding ReEncodeFont 8r.enc ptmbi8a.pfb ptmr8r

I thought it was a known fact that Red Hat boobooed and used a *prerelease* version of gcc (2.96) to make the system libs and what not for RH 7.0. Which is probably the cause of the problems. I don't know what to recommend in this case. Switch to Debian? Not trying to start a flame war with

Can we see the problem file? Can you make it available via ftp/web. If not, mail it directly to me. I can confirm Rainer's mail that T1Lib works with the CM fonts. I tested xpdf for use here at the AMS (when we ran into problems with Reader on Digital UNIX). Thanks, Tom On Wed, 1 Nov 2000,
