Using the rupee symbol is LaTeX


First download tfrupee.zip from here

unzip tfrupee.zip  
cd tfrupee/  
sudo cp -rv fonts/type1/tfrupee/ /usr/share/texmf/fonts/type1/  
sudo cp -rv fonts/afm/tfrupee/ /usr/share/texmf/fonts/afm/  
sudo cp -rv fonts/tfm/tfrupee/ /usr/share/texmf/fonts/tfm/  
sudo cp -rv fonts/map/dvips/tfrupee/ /usr/share/texmf/fonts/map/dvips/  
sudo cp -rv fonts/source/tfrupee/ /usr/share/texmf/fonts/source/  
sudo cp -rv tex/latex/tfrupee/ /usr/share/texmf/tex/latex/  
sudo texhash  
sudo updmap-sys --enable Map=tfrupee.map

Test it with this simple tex file.

\documentclass[12pt]{article}  
\usepackage{tfrupee}  
\begin{document}  
\rupee~7,000  
\end{document}
