[reportlab-users] renderPM problem

The missing T1 files error is caused by not having available the
standard font PFB files. You can get these from Adobe maybe.
In my Acrobat reader 5.0 resource/font dir I see these
AdobeFnt.lst ZX______.PFB _AI_____.PFB _ei_____.pfb com_____.pfb
PFM ZY______.PFB _A______.PFB _er_____.pfb coo_____.pfb
SY______.PFB _ABI____.PFB _eb_____.pfb cob_____.pfb
ZD______.PFB _AB_____.PFB _ebi____.pfb cobo____.pfb
The files used to be available separately at
ftp://ftp.adobe.com/pub/adobe/type/win/all/, but I can only see loose
.afm files there now.
is a self expanding zip format exe file that contains some substitute
font files. If all else fails you can change the default mapping in
reportlab\pdfbase\_fontdata.py to use these euro fonts rather than the
originals. It seems the pfb/afm files are being phased out in favour of
.otf, but I cant seem to locate those on Adobe's site either.
