Hi Agnes and Camille (and help-list),

In Ubuntu 11.10 I needed to use su permissions to copy and gzip the *.afm
files manually into "/usr/lib/R/library/grDevices/afm/" to get the Arial
embedding to work in R for postscript. 

Ie. after following the instructions by Agnes and Camille, I did 
  sudo cp arial*.afm /usr/lib/R/library/grDevices/afm/
  gzip /usr/lib/R/library/grDevices/afm/arial*.afm

Then the postscript toy example in this thread worked.
