As announced in my posting "texlive-2012.20120611-20120471.1.x86_64
for openSUSE 12.2 - mf.base missing" (Date: Tue, 05 Mar 2013 17:40:37
+0100) in above package I miss the following file:


Some additional info about installed packages you find in the
attached "tex.log" file. In the attached "out" file you find output
of the following command:

pdflatex article.tex

My questions are:

Which OBS package provides above file (as mention in my earlier
posting due to dependencies of texlive-achemso I cannot install
texlive which comes wit opensuse 12.2)?

Which OBS packages are generally needed to replace the texlive
package which comes wit opensuse 12.2?

Thank you very much.

The new TeXLive system support things like

zypper install 'tex(ptmr7t.tfm)'

for times you may not want MetaFont as there is not .mf file around.
To use zypper in this way the repository for openSUSE 12.2

should been added.
