    ProTeX & Makor2

    I have not been able to get this to output in Hebrew:
    \input{makor2}
    \documentclass{article}
    \begin{document}
    Hebrew Test \
    \end{document}

    I have read and followed the installation instructions, many times.
    Google finds posts of others with similar problems, but no answers.
    YouTube provides no video instruction and User Groups are scarce.
    Win32 XP Intel Pentium
    Never installed any version of TeX (Clean)

    Download (Protext) to
    C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\My Documents\Typesetting\
    Expand (Protext)

    Run (TeX Setup) Application
    Install (MikTeX 2.9)
    C:\Program Files\MikTeX 2.9

    Install (TeXMakerX 2.1)
    C:\Program Files\TeXMakerX

    Created a Folder
    C:\texmf\
    Downloaded (makor) 2 to it
    C:\texmf\Makor.zip
    uncompressed (makor)

    MiK TEX Settings (Admin)
    Added “Roots” Path
    C:\texmf\makor\
    Added (Omega) package
    and “Refresh FNDB”
    My problems with (mkr2man.pdf) instructions
    “... know where the `root' of your local TEX directory is.”
    “... uncompress makor.zip” in it.

    1) Where is it ?
    C:\ Documents and Settings \ All Users \ Application Data \ MiKTeX \ 2.9
    C:\ Documents and Settings \ Owner \ Application Data \ MiKTeX \ 2.9
    C:\ Program Files \ MiKTeX 2.9

    I have not found that (..texmf/) was created
    2) Would the Folder I created work ? (C:\texmf)

    “Next, move to the <texmf-root>/tex/makor2 directory.
    Place the contents of the file psfonts.mkr2 into your file psfonts.map,”

    I found psfonts.map at
    C:\ Documents and Settings \ All Users \ Application Data \ MiKTeX \ 2.9 \ dvips \ psfonts.map
    and found psfonts.mkr2 at
    C: \ texmf \ makor \ tex \ makor2 \ psfonts.mkr2

    Within psfonts.map it says
    %%% DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE! It will be replaced when MiKTeX is updated.
    %%% Run the following command to edit a local version of this file:
    %%% initexmf --edit-config-file updmap

    3) Are both files appended together or sorted alphabetically ?
    4) What Directory should “initexmf --edit-config-file updmap” be exicuted in ?
    5) What is the procedure ?
    6) Is there anything else that needs to be added to this file ?
    7) Where should the Output file be written, if it's to be a local version ?
    8) Are there any other “CMD”s that need to be executed ? (like updmap stuff)

    ”Now, update the filename database …., and that's it!”
    MiK TEX Settings (Admin)
    “Refresh FNDB”.

    I suspect my
    a) unidentified <texmf-Root> directory to be the first problem.
    b) combining psfonts of .mkr2 and .map to be the next.

    I have “... uncompress makor.zip” in <texmf-root> (C:\ Program Files \ MiKTeX
    2.9)
    This answers my questions 1 & 2.
    I still need questions 3 through 8 answered.

    For anyone addressing the same problem.

    1) Where is it ? <texmf> = C:\ Program Files \ MiKTeX 2.9
    2) Would the Folder I created work ? No need for it.
    3) Are both files appended together or sorted alphabetically ? Alphabetically
    4) What Directory should “initexmf --edit-config-file updmap” be exicuted in ?
    C:\Documents and Settings\Owner>
    5) What is the procedure ?
    Start > Run > CMD opens to “C:\Documents end Settings\Owner>”
    initexmf --edit-config-file updmap
    Opens
    C:\Documents end Settings\Owner\Application
    Data\Miktex\2.9\miktex\config\updmap.cfg
    in Notepad
    Enter
    Map \makor\tex\makor2\psfonts.mkr2
    Save and Close
    6) Is there anything else that needs to be added to this file ? No
    7) Where should the Output file be written, if it's to be a local version ?
    Back to itself
    8) Are there any other “CMD” that need to be executed ? Yes
    At the DOS prompt
    initexmf –mkmaps
    This creates the Local psfonts.map
    At the DOS prompt
    initexmf –u
    This updates the data base

    Now I have the fonts installed, I still have to get the code to produce ezra,
    or david.
    I did expect more results from other users in this forum.
