2. Revised metric files, in view of 1.
Changes in version 1.03
1. Resolved problem in script creating zmn*.pfb.
2. Brought MathItalicA into conformity with other newtx addons. Newtxmath, version 1.15 or higher, is required.

1. Provided expanded symbolsA font.
1. You must have in your possession Version 2 or later of MinionPro-Regular.otf, MinionPro-Bold.otf, MinionPro-It.otf and MinionPro-BoldIt.otf. These fonts must be converted to PostScript format with modifications to the filenames and the PostScript names as specified in the documentation.
2. The map file zmn.map must be enabled before using the option 'minion' with newtxmath.
It is simplest to carry out the font conversion first, as described in the documentation, placing the resulting .pfb files in the downloaded TDS inside fonts/type1/adobe/minion2. The install the TDS as follows:
Mac OS X: To install, open a Terminal window and cd to inside the downloaded TDS folder.
Method A (recommended): type
sudo cp -Rfp * /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local
sudo -H updmap-sys --enable Map=zmn.map
Method B: If you insist on making your font installations in your home folder, potentially making your personal installation become out of sync with updates to TeXLive, use instead
(i) if you checked Update for All Users in TeXLive utility
cp -Rfp * ~/Library/texmf
updmap --enable Map=zmn.map
cp -Rfp * ~/Library/texmf
sudo updmap-sys --enable Map=zmn.map
Linux: Very similar to Mac OS X.
MikTeX: Copy the newtxTDS.zip to the root of the folder you use for personal additions to the TeX trees, open a command window, chdir to that folder, and type
initexmf --edit-config-file updmap
The latter command should open updmap.cfg in your default editor, commonly Notepad. Add the line
to updmap.cfg, save and close. Then, in the command window, type
You can ignore error messages that may occur here. This should result in a properly enabled zmn.
