Issue #415 has been updated by mtjm.

I know two ways: use the QX encoding, or a Unicode TeX engine like XeTeX with OpenType fonts (see https://wiki.parabolagnulinux.org/TeXLive).

The fonts have a license probably prohibiting selling and modification, so they are removed.  The package should be changed to not generate these errors.
Bug #415: [texlive-most] Errors during installation

Author: niitotantei
Status: open
Priority: bug

I got a lot of errors of this kind during the installation of TeX Live:

However, it seems that @pdflatex@ compiles documents written in English correctly (I tried compiling the @https://gnu.org/licenses/gpl.tex@). The problem happens when I try to compile documents written in Polish (which use @\usepackage[MeX]{polski}@ or @\usepackage[OT4]{fontenc}@). I’ve included the compilation log for those.

Are the font packages missing because of some freedom issues? If that’s the case, is there any way to compile documents written in Polish using different fonts?
