I also tried creating /usr/bin/cont-en as a symlink to pdfetex and pdftex (not at the same time, of course). The results were, well, different: First, with cont-en as a link to pdftex: | [EMAIL PROTECTED]:/var/tmp$ texexec ut.tex | | TeXExec 4.3 - ConTeXt / PRAGMA ADE 1997-2004 | | executable : pdfetex | format : cont-en | inputfile : ut | output : standard | interface : en | current mode : none | TeX run : 1 | | This is pdfTeX, Version 3.14159-1.00a-pretest-20011114-ojmw (Web2C 7.3.7) | I can't find the format file `cont-en.fmt'! | | return code : 256 | run time : 1 seconds | | total run time : 4 seconds Can't find 'cont-en.fmt'? Well, that makes sense, doesn't it? Since, as I understand it, ConTeXt normally uses pdfetex, which would need cont-en.efmt. But it was worth a try. So then I tried pdfetex: | [EMAIL PROTECTED]:/var/tmp$ texexec ut.tex | | TeXExec 4.3 - ConTeXt / PRAGMA ADE 1997-2004 | | executable : pdfetex | format : cont-en | inputfile : ut | output : standard | interface : en | current mode : none | TeX run : 1 | | This is pdfeTeX, Version 3.14159-1.00a-pretest-20011114-ojmw-2.1 (Web2C 7.3.7) | This is pdfeTeX, Version 3.14159-1.00a-pretest-20011114-ojmw-2.1 (Web2C 7.3.7) | (/usr/share/texmf/web2c/natural.tcx) | ** | ! End of file on the terminal... why? | entering extended mode | (./ut.tex | Error: cont-en (file pdftex.cfg): cannot open config file | | return code : 65280 | run time : 3 seconds | | total run time : 6 seconds Hmm ... two questions here: what is the 'End of file on the terminal?' Is that referring to natural.tcx (which comes from the ConTeXt distribution)? And what about pdftex.cfg? Indeed, it doesn't exist. But it doesn't exist on the machines where I have ConTeXt working, either. So I don't know if either of the above results are meaningful. Oh, by the way, the input file was this: \usetypescriptfile [type-utopia] \usetypescript [UtopiaFace] \showbodyfont [Utopia] \end And yes, the typescript in question is available; both it and this test file have worked for me on another machine. -- Matt Gushee When a nation follows the Way, Englewood, Colorado, USA Horses bear manure through [EMAIL PROTECTED] its fields; http://www.havenrock.com/ When a nation ignores the Way, Horses bear soldiers through its streets. --Lao Tzu (Peter Merel, trans.) _______________________________________________ ntg-context mailing list [EMAIL PROTECTED] http://www.ntg.nl/mailman/listinfo/ntg-context
