Hi Patrick,

Well, what I wanted is to install and use a new font called Hudson. It is a font that consists of just one file (hudson.pdf + hudson.afm).

I installed Hudson with texfont, but I got a serious error message. Apparently I need a line like this in my file:

\definetypeface[hudson][rm][serif][palatino][default]
\setupbodyfont[hudson,12pt,rm]

Then I got a cryptic error message which referred to the font ec-uplbi8a. Someone found out that the palatino font may not be correctly installed on my system, even though in Latex I don't have any problems.

Willi advised me run texfont on texfont.bat, which installs Palatino and a number of other fonts.

Nevertheless, still one palatino size (720) apparently is not available. (The pdf file that results is corrupted.) I guess that size has to be generated in some way or another.

Well, my goal still is to use the Hudson font, and palatino, of course. The suggestion in the Wiki does not work either, I'm afraid.

With the instruction
\usetypescript[palatino][\defaultencoding]
\setupbodyfont[palatino,12pt]

from the Wiki, the log file reads:

Output written on testhuds-con.pdf (1 page, 1869 bytes).

But this warning comes up whatever I do.

I am totally lost now.

Kind regards,

Robert
