Dear cartel, >===== Original Message From "Thomas A.Schmitz" <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> ===== What does > >kpsewhich -var-value TEXMFLOCAL >produce?
1.I have 2 trees: C:\Context (from mswintex.zip) and C:\TeXLive (from July04). kpsewhich -var-value TEXMFLOCAL works for the \Context tree: >C:\ConTeXt\texmf-mswin\bin\kpsewhich -var-value TEXMFLOCAL c:/ConTeXt/texmf-local >C:\ConTeXt\texmf-mswin\bin\kpsewhich -var-value TEXMFMAIN c:/ConTeXt/texmf 2. What I would like: how do I properly modify texmf.cnf (presumably C:\ConTeXt\texmf-local\web2c\texmf.cnf is the main one) so that a. C:\ConTeXt is given priority over C:\TeXLive; b. C:\TeXLive\texmf-var\web2c formats are searched after C:\ConTeXt\texmf-local\web2c c. C:\ConTeXt utilities like TeXFont install files to C:\ConTeXt\texmf-local\ instead of to C:\TeXLive\texmf-local (for some reason the C:\ConTeXt tree does recognize C:\TeXLive\texmf-local by default) Of course, I may be missing the big picture here, in which case please enlighten me! Part of my problem is that 1. apparently I can make both pdfetex and aleph formats in the TeXLive tree (efmt and fmt respectively), but only one of them in the ConTeXt tree (both are dumped as cont-en.fmt) 2. I can't just dump cont-tmf.zip into TeXLive\texmf-var, because some utilities (like texfont.exe) do not get updated or replaced. So I would have to manually delete e.g., texfont.exe and replace it with the new texfont.bat, making a mess of my TeXLive system. I really wish that updating/upgrading were not always such a pain...
