[texhax] (SOLVED) Inconsolata font.

Thanks to everyone who responded to my cri de coeur.

For the record, the solution to the problem was (in short) to do:

sudo yum install texlive
sudo yum install tex-inconsolata.noarch
sudo yum install texlive-collection-fontsrecommended

the last bit being the part that got me over that last hump in respect
of an error "Metric (TFM) file not found".

This worked for me, but a couple of respondents indicated that a
more efficient and easier procedure would be:

I haven't actually *tried* that, given that I had got things working and
didn't dare do anything that might put my system back into bozo mode! :-)

Again, thanks to all who proffered advice.  I am particular grateful for
having my attention drawn to "yum search" of which I was previously
unaware. :-(  This is a *very* useful tool!
