Thanks for the reply. Indeed, Computer Modern Roman, Latin Modern Roman, AE and Concrete Roman fonts do work normally, while no other font works for .pdf at all (I tested Utopia, Times, Palatino, Bitstream Charter, New Century Schoolbook, Bookman, Bera and Zapf Chancery). Well, I guess all I can do is reinstall of TL.

one imagines that anyone who couldn't produce any output using adobe
standard encoding fonts would have complained.  (note that, unless
something else is wrong, you _could_ have used cm fonts and the like.)

if your installation really doesn't have 8r.enc, dvi output wouldn't
have worked either -- at the point when the fonts had to be loaded (when
printing or viewing) the same failure would have occurred.
