tex-common (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: tex-common

The following message gets generated for what appears to be every font .cnf configuration operation.

This is a major problem as many packages depend on tex-common to install.

 | Invalid essential entry in /etc/texmf/texmf.d/55Fonts.cnf │
 │ │
 │ An essential entry is invalid in /etc/texmf/texmf.d/55Fonts.cnf: TEXFONTMAPS does not contain: │
 │ │
 │ $TEXMF/{fonts/,}map//;$TEXMF/dvips//|.;$TEXMF{/fonts/map,}{/$progname,/pdftex,/dvips,}// │
 │ │
 │ TeX will not work until the configuration files are fixed. The version of /etc/texmf/texmf.d/55Fonts.cnf that is provided by the package should be │
 │ available as /etc/texmf/texmf.d/55Fonts.cnf.ucf-dist. │
 │ │
 │ The configuration process has been aborted.

The correct .cnf files appear to be missing from Ubuntu.
