[The following installation method has been tested on a Linux system running teTeX 3.0. It should be applicable to any teTeX 3.0 and to systems using TeX Live 2004/2005.]

Where to install
-----------------------

Additions like the MTProII fonts should go into the local TEXMF-tree. You can find its location with the command

$ kpsexpand \$TEXMFLOCAL

[Note that the commandline prompt '$' is used for ordinary users. '#' is used for root. On some sytems you will have to use 'sudo' to obtain root privileges.]

In the following, TEXMFLOCAL will be used for this location.

Installation of the files
--------------------------------

Unpack the ZIP file into a temporary directory. Among other things, you will get a directory called 'texmf' with subdirectories 'doc', 'dvips', 'fonts', 'source', 'tex', and 'tpm'. Copy these subdirectories excluding 'dvips' to TEXMFLOCAL. Afterwards, refresh the file-name database with the command

# mktexlsr

Registering the map file
----------------------------------

The map file 'mtpro2.map' is registered for use with dvips, pdftex, xdvi, ... using the command

# updmap-sys --enable Map mtpro2.map

[Note that on TeX Live on Windows you might have to use

# updmap-sys --enable Map=mtpro2.map

instead.]

If you had copied the 'dvips' subdirectory, too, calling updmap-sys would have produced a warning

!!! WARNING: Identical copy of used file for `mtpro2.map'
exists in obsolete location
TEXMFLOCAL/dvips/mtpro2/mtpro2.map
Please, consider removing this file.

This warning is harmless, but it is still better to remove the map file from this obsolete location.


Now, the MTProII fonts should be ready to use. If there are errors, please check with kpsewhich that files like 'mtpro2.sty', 'mtp2.tex', 'mt2mit.tfm', and 'mt2bmit.pfb' are found by TeX, dvips, .... Also make sure that the mapfile used ('kpsewhich psfonts.map', 'kpsewhich pdftex.map', ...) contain the relevant entries. For example:

$ grep mt2bmit $(kpsewhich pdftex.map)
mt2bmit MT2BMIT <mt2bmit.pfb


[[Edit: I removed the 'draft' from the title, since I ahvae gone through the instructions again and haven't found any pitfalls.]]
