Question Latex + Fontenc


Hi,

I have moved from LFS to Debian on my notebook and whenever I use
Code:
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
in my Latex-documents now, I get

Code:
[PDFLaTeX] finished with exit status 1
/usr/share/texmf-tetex/tex/latex/base/fontenc.sty:100:Font T1/cmr/m/n/10=ecrm1000 at 10.0pt not loadable: Metric (TFM) file not found. \fontencoding\encodingdefault\selectfont
./la.tex:14:Font T1/cmr/m/n/17.28=ecrm1728 at 17.28pt not loadable: Metric (TFM) file notfound. \maketitle
./la.tex:14:Font T1/cmr/m/n/12=ecrm1200 at 12.0pt not loadable: Metric (TFM) file not found. \maketitle
./la.tex:16:Font T1/cmr/bx/n/10=ecbx1000 at 10.0pt not loadable: Metric (TFM) file not found. \begin{abstract}
What's the reason for this? How do I solve this or where do I start digging?

Thanx for any hints ;-)

-Christoph =)

run latex as root once

you just need to run latex logged as root once, using the file with the "\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}" as input to generate the font, wich you has no permission as a normal user.

i have done it in my slackware with the same problem and it works now. hope this could help

Hi and thanks for your reply!

I'll try that next time I set up a new system!

I found out, that the user you create during setup isn't in the 'users' group by default. Adding him Solved the problem for me so far ;-)

oops

in fact, my previous solution worked for a while, but when I need a different font size i have the same problem again. then I try some with the texconfig and the command "texconfig font" give me the answer.

so i see that "texconfig font rw" solved my problem and i dont need to run latex as root anymore.
