You have installed the *.enc files, which is a cause for many
problems.  If you've got the time to spare, I would advise you to use
Fontforge to generate the fonts: you will get nice Type1 fonts
embedded in your PDF or PS output, and DVI will show the Chinese
characters instantly without the need to generate any PK fonts.

Remove the *.enc files, update the TEXMF tree and see if you've got
the same problems.  If you do, then please provide us with some more

And don't mix with the UCS package.  The author didn't read the CJK
mailing archives carefully enough.  Tsk tsk.

teTeX isn't maintained by Thomas Esser anymore, so a switch is
