This can happen if either
mktexpk hasn't been installed
properly, or if the local installation of Metafont isn't correct.
mf is a command not found by
mktexpk, then you need
to install Metafont (see section 2.5 `unixtex.ftp': Obtaining TeX).
If Metafont runs, but generates fonts at the wrong resolution, you need
to be sure the `M' and `D' lines in your Dvips configuration
file match (see section `Config files' in Dvips). For example, if
mktexpk is generating 300dpi fonts, but you need
600dpi fonts, you should have:
M ljfour D 600
If Metafont runs but generates fonts at a resolution of 2602dpi
(and prints out the name of each character as well as just a character
number, and maybe tries to display the characters), then your Metafont
base file probably hasn't been made properly. (It's using the default
proof mode, instead of an actual device mode.) To make a proper
`plain.base', assuming the local mode definitions are contained in
a file `modes.mf', run the following command (assuming Unix):
inimf "plain; input modes; dump"
Then copy the `plain.base' file from the current directory to where the base files are stored on your system (`/usr/local/share/texmf/web2c' by default), and make a link (either hard or soft) from `plain.base' to `mf.base' in that directory. See section `inimf invocation' in Web2c.
