[texhax] Texlive and fonts

Hi all,

I've recently installed a new Fedora 11 system with texlive 2007-42. This is
the first time I have texlive I should say. I have two adobe fonts that I've
used for a long time with tex and, although the installation process has
differed I have always managed to get it to work. This time I've installed
the fonts and the maps in a local texmf directory. updmap finds them and
complains about nothing. I can process documents with these fonts using
latex, producing dvi but I can't use pdflatex, nor dvips on the dvi file
produced. The error I'm getting is:

pdfTeX warning: pdflatex (file padr8r): Font padr8r at 864 not found

This must have something to do with the searchpats becuase these files exist
in the appropriate directories (I think) in my local texmf tree (in
/home/user/texmf/fonts/tfm etc..)

Any hints would be greatly appreciated.
