    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.

    ~~~~~~~~~~ My installation:~~~~~~~~~~  
    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.
