It really helps. Thank you for support.

And one more question.

I have a document which uses a lot of different russian fonts.
If  TexLive does not found metric file it calls MF to create it (and it
is desired behavour).
BUT: after creating metic file, compliling of TEX file fails with
diffents errors.

At the next start LaTeX found created on prior start metric file, and
continue compliation.
But then it need one more font the situations repeats.

So I have to restart compilation many times, one start for each font.

MikTeX for example, do not stop compiling of source file after building
font files.
So Miktex can build any number of needed fonts at one start, without any

There are 2 examples in attach.
"Slides.tex" is made using "beamer" style, which use a lot of fonts, and
this is a good example (showing my words).
"test.tex" is very simple file, but also showing this problem - errors
(with font) at first run.

Best regards,
