[Tex/LaTex] Tengwar script in TeX Live


I tried to compile this example but the LaTeX compiler gives the following errors. What can I do?

name = tngani, rootname = tngani, pointsize = mktexmf: empty or non-existent rootfile!

Cannot find font tngani in map file(s).

kpathsea: Running mktexmf tngani.mf The command name is 
C:\texlive\2011\bin\win32\mktexmf Cannot find tngani.mf .
I try ps2pk --> gsftopk --> ttf2pk --> hbf2gf. ps2pk cannot be used.
I try gsftopk. gsftopk.exe tngani 1650 gsftopk cannot be used.
Next I try ttf2pk. ttf2pk.exe -q tngani 1650 ttf2pk failed.
Finally I try hbf2gf. hbf2gf.exe -q -p tngani 1650
All trials failed.

The tengwarscript package provides only the metric files for the fonts, but not the fonts themselves which must be downloaded from the sites shown in the documentation.

You can, for instance, download the "Annatar" fonts from here and unpack the ZIP file; then move the .ttf files in


which should be


for a Unix system (create the necessary directories). Then a run of mktexlsr will make the font available. Add the declaration


just after the \documentclass line and the document should compile.

For other font families, look around on the net, for instance here. Unfortunately, a link where several font families were available for download has disappeared.
