I've just uploaded tt2001, an EC/TC Type1 font collection to CTAN. I've
attached its README to my e-mail. Please find an appropriate location
for the fonts, and move them there.

Thank you,

This is version 1.0 of Tt2001.

This is Tt2001, a TeX .pfb font collection, converted to .pfb in 2001 by the
author of TeXtrace, using TeXtrace. It contains almost _all_ the EC (European
Computer Modern) and TC (Text Companion) fonts in all possible design sizes,
_all_ the AMS fonts in all possible design sizes, plus some more.

Author: pts at inf.bme.hu

The missing EC/TC fonts are:

        fcvt0500.pfb fcvi0500.pfb fctt0500.pfb fcst0500.pfb fcit0500.pfb
        fctc0500.pfb fcff0500.pfb fcff0600.pfb fcff0700.pfb fcff0800.pfb
        fcfi0500.pfb fcfi0600.pfb fcfi0700.pfb fcfi0800.pfb fcfb2488.pfb
        fcfb2986.pfb fcfb3583.pfb fcfs2488.pfb fcfs2986.pfb fcfs3583.pfb
        fymisc10.pfb ucfb2488.pfb ucfb2986.pfb ucfb3583.pfb ucfs2488.pfb
        ucfs2986.pfb ucfs3583.pfb ucff0500.pfb ucff0600.pfb ucff0700.pfb
        ucff0800.pfb ucff1728.pfb ucff2074.pfb ucff2986.pfb ucff3583.pfb
        ucfi0500.pfb ucfi0600.pfb ucfi0700.pfb ucfi0800.pfb ucfi2986.pfb
        ucfi3583.pfb ucit0500.pfb ucst0500.pfb uctt0500.pfb ucvi0500.pfb

They are missing because METAFONT failed to generate them. The missing EC
fonts are just some typewriter fonts at 5pt, plus some Fibonacci and funny

Quick and dirty UNIX shell command to find the missing fonts:

        ls `awk -F '<' '/^[a-z]/{print$2}' <ecpfb.map` 2>&1 >/dev/null |
        awk -F ':' '{print substr($2,2)}'

TeXtrace is available from the net: http://textrace.sf.net

TeXtrace was first presented at EuroTeX 2001 http://www.ntg.nl/eurotex/.

Tanakori Uchiyama has reported:

        By the way, there is a musixps-unix.tar.gz at CTAN.
        I think that it is easy to get and use it.

Quoting subsubsection 5.4.1 of dvips.dvi:

Commercial versions of the Computer Modern fonts are available from Blue
Sky; public domain versions are available from CTAN sites (for CTAN info,
see section `unixtex.ftp'' in Kpathsea) in:


You may need to modify these fonts; see http:///xxx.lanl.gov/faq/bakoma.html

Knuth's original CM (Computer Modern) fonts (_not_ including European
accentend letters) were converted to .pfb by Bluesky in 1991. These Bluesky
.pfb fonts (such as cmr10.pfb) are part of the standard teTeX distribution,
and are available from CTAN since years ago.

Some auxilary fonts (such as the MetaFont logo and the Wasy fonts) were
converted to .pfb by Taco Hoekwater, 1998.

Some fonts, such as Times, Helvetica and Charter were _originally_ in PFB
format, so they need no conversion. Many of them are part of the standard
teTeX distribution, and also from CTAN.
