Hi everyone,

I'm having issues using LaTeX text processing with the xpdf distiller. After playing with my settings, I finally managed to get vector graphics output using LaTeX test processing. However, a weird error message pops up in the terminal every time (mostly annoying, the plotting actually works):

Error: No paper information available - using defaults
Error: No display font for 'Courier'
Error: No display font for 'Courier-Bold'
Error: No display font for 'Courier-BoldOblique'
Error: No display font for 'Courier-Oblique'
Error: No display font for 'Helvetica'
Error: No display font for 'Helvetica-Bold'
Error: No display font for 'Helvetica-BoldOblique'
Error: No display font for 'Helvetica-Oblique'
Error: No display font for 'Symbol'
Error: No display font for 'Times-Bold'
Error: No display font for 'Times-BoldItalic'
Error: No display font for 'Times-Italic'
Error: No display font for 'Times-Roman'
Error: No display font for 'ZapfDingbats'

I attach my matplotlibrc file for reference. Note especially the stuff at the end with usetex=True and distiller = xpdf. If you know any other settings that might work better, please let me know! I suspect these settings are the sources of my annoying error messages.

Do you have the relevant latex font packages installed? Like psnfss? I suspect this is an issue with your latex installation, not matplotlib.

First of all, the "No paper info available" should not be relevant for fonts? Second, this problem appeared recently, after an upgrade of matplotlib. But, it could be that you are right. I still don't know how to fix it, though, and latex itself gives no error messages. I'm thinking there's something with xpdf.
