Hi Thorsten,

I downloaded the file and had a quicklook just in case I uploaded the wrong 
thing. It is fine. So I have no idea why it does not work for you. I can only 
suggest looking carefully at your latex log (i.e. sampl-nose.log, where you run 
latex), and your dvips log (that's come out to the console) to where it is 
looking for the tfm files and the pfb files and make sure you are not look at 
your old ones, seeing as you have multiple tries. oh, and where the 
"c70nose.fd" file is. That should also be seen in sample-nose.log; you want to 
use the one I included in the tar ball. Although it should be functionally the 
same as your own.

Item 3 is a mistake, sorry. However, extra entries are not used so shouldn't be 
a problem.
Item 6. "freetype-py" is the python wrapper around "libfreetype". I can 
generate both versions of the "subfonts-corrected.pe" if that helps. I'll 
suggest you try to get my tar ball working first though.

The language unit is called "character" and the visual graphic unit is call 
"glyph". In this case, "missing character" and "missing glyph" are both fine.

The difference between Noto CJK and Source CJK is quite small. Get one working, 
then you can think about switching :-).

 Hello Hin-Tak,
 after some days being more or

 online and test things.
 1. I downloaded and unpacked the files from http://htl10.users.sf.net/f
 ixed-nose.tar.bz2. for a first, quick test (I
 hope to have more time
 the next days). First
 I tried to it under Windows, there I was told,
 the file is corrupt. But repeating under Ubuntu
 worked like a charm.
 Under Windows I put the *.pfb files into the appropriate

 3. I noticed the
 following: You sent me via http://htl10.users.sf.net/f

 the same number
 of *.tfm files. But in dvips-psfonts.map.add 417 *.pfb
 files each are listed. Is that a discrepancy or
 is it normal? 
 Before I
 leave for work now, a few additional notes:
 4. Thank you for your hint,
 that NotoCJK Serif and Adobe Source CJK
 Serif are not quite the same! If I understand
 you right, the Adobe
 fonts seem to be the
 more complete ones? So I should use them in
 5. I
 feel the same as you about Noto-Medium being too thick.
 chinese signs stick out of my text being
 much darker in the moment.
 When before
 starting I looked at the font in a viewer, the signs
 thinner than the font Palatino I use
 as my main font. I would have
 changed that
 already, had I not run into much bigger problems. Now
 should be one of my next tasks...
 6. For installing
 freetype under Ubuntu it seems to be sufficient to
 apt-get install libfreetype6
 So I hope to be ready for doing more the next
