Additional Notes (ctd) from Bruno


In order to know where TeX and friends look for files with specific
extensions, you can use (in Terminal) the command-line utility kpsewhich.
Its usage is documented in section 3.5 of
    /Library/teTeX/share/texmf.tetex/doc/programs/kpathsea.pdf. 
For example: 
(. meaning the current directory):



$ kpsewhich --show-path=.pfb
.
/Users//Library/texmf/fonts/type1//
!!/usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.local/fonts/type1//
!!/usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.gwtex/fonts/type1//
!!/usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.tetex/fonts/type1//
!!/usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf/fonts/type1//

$ kpsewhich --show-path=.map
.
/Users//Library/texmf/fonts/map//
!!/usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.local/fonts/map//
!!/usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.gwtex/fonts/map//
!!/usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.tetex/fonts/map//
!!/usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf/fonts/map//
/Users//Library/texmf/fontname
!!/usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.local/fontname
!!/usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.gwtex/fontname
!!/usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.tetex/tex/latex//
!!/usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf/tex/latex//
/Users//Library/texmf/xetex/generic//
