MnSymbol is a symbol font designed to be used in conjunction with Adobe
MinionPro.

All files in this archive are in the public domain.

WARNING
=======

This version includes a bugfix that causes incompatibilities with
previous versions. The symbols

  \...harpoonup and \...harpoondown

are now called

  \...harpoonccw and \...harpooncw

(This was needed for compatibility with amsfonts.sty.)

INSTALLATION
============

To install the fonts:

(0) If you have already a version of MnSymbol installed, delete the old
TFM and PK files.

(1) Run

  $ cd tex
  $ latex MnSymbol.ins

and copy the resulting file MnSymbol.sty to

   .../texmf/tex/latex/MnSymbol/MnSymbol.sty

(2) Copy all files in the "source" directory into the directory

   .../texmf/fonts/source/public/MnSymbol/

(3) Copy the documentation (MnSymbol.ps, MnSymbol.pdf, README) into the
directory

   .../texmf/doc/latex/MnSymbol/

(4) To install the PostScript fonts (courtesy of Michael Zedler) copy

  o enc/MnSymbol.map into .../texmf/fonts/map/dvips/MnSymbol
  o enc/*.enc        into .../texmf/fonts/enc/dvips/MnSymbol
  o pfb/*.pfb        into .../texmf/fonts/type1/public/MnSymbol

(These fonts are not strictly necessary but recommended.)

(5) You can copy the files in the "tfm" directory to

   .../texmf/fonts/tfm/public/MnSymbol

This is optional since these files can be generated automatically.
But it saves some time.

(6) Regenerate the file database:

  $ mktexlsr

If you installed the PostScript fonts you also need to run updmap or
updmap-sys to make them available:

  $ updmap-sys --enable MixedMap MnSymbol.map

(7) Happy TeXing.

mn­sym­bol – Math­e­mat­i­cal sym­bol font for Adobe Min­ionPro

MnSym­bol is a sym­bol font fam­ily, de­signed to be used in con­junc­tion with Adobe Min­ion Pro (via the Min­ionPro pack­age). Al­most all of LaTeX and AMS math­e­mat­i­cal sym­bols are pro­vided; re­main­ing cov­er­age is avail­able from the Min­ionPro font with the Min­ionPro pack­age.

The fonts are avail­able both as source and as Adobe Type 1 for­mat, and a com­pre­hen­sive sup­port pack­age is pro­vided.

While the fonts were de­signed to fit with Mi­non Pro, the de­sign should fit well with other re­nais­sance or baroque faces: in­deed, it will prob­a­bly work with most fonts that are nei­ther too wide nor too thin, for ex­am­ple Palatino or Times; it is known to look good with Sabon. There is no pack­age de­signed to con­fig­ure its use with any font other than Min­ion Pro, but (for ex­am­ple) sim­ply load­ing mn­sym­bol af­ter math­pazo will prob­a­bly do what is needed.
