Well, then it isn't with fontinst something is wrong, but somewhere else in
your set-up. Turn on all font-related tracing you can, and read pdfTeX's
log files carefully.

? You _are_ saying you want lining digits (argument #3 is t1, not t1j).
Then what is your problem?

Usually it is, but the padr8x entry seems OK. A couple of the others are
bad though.

padrij is AGaramond-ItalicOsF, not AGaramond-Italic.

That should be AGaramond-BoldOsF, and so on for the other *j* fonts.

A common error is that your ls-R file isn't up to date. Another common
error is that the driver isn't reading the files that you think it is. We
have no way of tracing down the error for you; you'll have to do that
