Log file keeps creating in home directory

Postby matjaz132 » 2018-11-08 08:05


I've been having a problem on my two laptops for 2 days now. I'm running Debian Stable and for the past maybe 2 days I'm getting a file named missfont.log in my home directory. It's contents are:

Code: Select all
mktexpk --mfmode / --bdpi 600 --mag 1+120/600 --dpi 720 cmbx12
mktexpk --mfmode / --bdpi 600 --mag 1+120/600 --dpi 720 cmr10
mktextfm cmbx12
mktextfm cmr10

It's really random. Usually it's when I move windows, workspaces, etc,.. but this is just random I think. Over time this file gets bigger and bigger and its contents are multiplied.

Anyone knows what's causing this problem? I've googled and some Latex program file seems to be the problem but I don't have anything related to Tex installed on both machines.

must be some software that you use.
Code: Select all
apt-file search mktexpk
texlive-binaries: /usr/bin/mktexpk

have you tried configuring that software to not "miss fonts"?
have you tried installing those "missing fonts"?
