I use texlive and lyx quiet often to write papers, and found out that my pdf were generated using type 3 fonts.
I finally found that the cm map file is not setup in the config file !

Additional info:
* package version(s)
* config and/or log files etc.

Steps to reproduce:
- install texlive
- try to produce a pdf with type 1 font only, with a sig-alternate style for example (
- pdf has several unknown fonts that are type 3

Steps to solve the problem :
- launch updmap --edit and add Map
- pdflatex your_file.tex
- pdffonts your_file.pdf : everything is type 1 now !
This task depends upon

I found another map that is missing (used for math symbols) : I added Map to get some type 1 math symbols in my pdf.

Could you attach a minimal .tex file which reproduces the issue ? I would like to test whether it still affects our TeXlive 2010 packages.

Here it is. You need ams proceedings cls file ( but maybe try with a standard ieee article. At least when removing the two added maps I get type 3 fonts in the pdf of this tex file.

I cannot reproduce the problem with a pristine installation of texlive-bin 2009.5-5 and texlive-core 2009.16776-1, neither with a pristine installation of texlive 2010 from [testing]. It may have appeared during an upgrade.

Ok, maybe during an upgrade, as it has been several times upgraded since my first installation.

Sorry for bothering, at least this bug may help others to understand type 1 fonts problems…
