I wrote a long report with chapters using TexLiVE 2009. When I move to 12.10, the system had upgraded to Texlive 2012. However, I found that some fonts were not working, whereas they were a part of the distribution (Texlive). Therefore, I uninstalled the whole thing (TexLive) and then reinstalled.

Compilation command

pdflatex myreport.tex 

I now have the following error while compiling:

This is pdfTeX, Version 3.1415926-2.4-1.40.13 (TeX Live 2012/Debian)
\write18 enabled

kpathsea: Running mktexfmt pdflatex.fmt
I can't find the format file 'pdflatex.fmt'!

How do I solve this issue?
