10pt loadable: Metric (TFM) file not found

While using latex in debian 6.0 we might come across the following error.

10pt loadable: Metric (TFM) file not found

This is because the font the latex is trying to use is not installed in the system

The workaround for the problem is to install the package


In debian we can do it using the command

$ sudo apt-get install texlive-fonts-recommended

After installing the package the above error should not appear while using latex.
