Hi,

I am trying to setup the lates PyX 0.10 version on my mac (10.5.8)  (first time user). I installed PyX and then ran the 'Hello world' program and got and error stating that it can find the font mapping file 'psfonts.map'


Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/Users/viralb/Documents/rectangle", line 4, in <module>
    c.text(0, 0, "Hello, world!")
  File "/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.5/lib/python2.5/site-packages/pyx/canvas.py", line 309, in text
    return self.insert(self.texrunner.text(x, y, atext, *args, **kwargs))
  File "/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.5/lib/python2.5/site-packages/pyx/text.py", line 1199, in text
    self.execute(expr, self.defaulttexmessagesdefaultrun + self.texmessagesdefaultrun + texmessages)
  File "/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.5/lib/python2.5/site-packages/pyx/text.py", line 899, in execute
    self.fontmap = dvifile.readfontmap(self.fontmaps.split())
  File "/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.5/lib/python2.5/site-packages/pyx/dvifile.py", line 386, in readfontmap
    raise RuntimeError("cannot find font mapping file '%s'" % filename)
RuntimeError: cannot find font mapping file 'psfonts.map'


I tried the different solutions by putting adding text.set (fontmaps='psfonts.map') to the code but to no avail. As per this link about a similar problem from an earlier user     http://www.mail-archive.com/pyx-user@lists.sourceforge.net/msg00578.html     I ran the code with the following output...

This is where my problem deviates from the question in this mail archive as the psfonts.map is not detected at all....It would be great if you could help me locate the problem and solve it.

Thanks,
