Re: Persistent font problems

You're correct. I just did a clean font. I viewed my example with xdvi
and tried "kpsewhich" again. No response again.

However I did notice that there is no font problem with xdvi (and the
rests are okay, they have also been a problem)...see the attached png.

xdvi version 22.05d-k

It seems the problem is the conversion from dvi to postscript. Perhaps I
am not using the correct tools to convert to postscript?

If I use dvips to convert to ps I get the attached png
(badfont_dvips.png). A real mess.

> dvips -v
This is dvips(k) 5.86 Copyright 1999 Radical Eye Software 

My example with just the rests and numbers broken in the previous email
used "ly2dvi -P -s papersize="letter" $^".

Which tool should I be using? Evidently both ly2dvi and dvips are broken
somehow (or I'm not using them correctly).

Thanks for your help.
