Dear Norbert and all other members of this list.

I attach here the required file updmap.log. The date of it in my
computer is 2 January 2012, which is at least a couple of updates.
Just for your information I also give the tlmgr.log from the same

I use email attachments for both files, I hope this is not a problem
for the list.

Thanks again,
