Hi Norbert,

there is a difference in the location of the modified (created, if 
nonexisting) updmap.cfg file. Using the procedure decribed in 
http://www.tug.org/fonts/fontinstall.html the file is 
2012/texmf-config/web2c/updmap.cfg while you wrote about the file 

Meantime I obtained an advice to use (create) the file 
texmf-local/web2c/updmap-local.cfg. This differes from your advice only 
in the name of the file (is in the same directory). I wonder whether 
there is a missprint or whether both names are acceptable.

Best wishes,
