[NTG-context] Using capsule versoion of TeX from Pragma.

2005-01-30 Thread John Culleton
To help solve some other problems I disabled the path to my existing TeXLive 
distro, downloaded the minimal Linux-tex from Pragma, and unzipped it 
in /usr/local. 

 Following TeXLive conventions I established a path 
to  /usr/local/tex/texmf-linux/bin in /etc/profile 
and rebooted. 

The executables at the end of that path  were not executable so I made them 
executable. (chmod 777 *)
I also made the setuptex script in /usr/local/tex executable.
Per the instructions in setuptex I ran the following:

./setuptex .  #note period
mktexlsr
texexec --make --alone

and got the following error message
 
/usr/bin/env: ruby: No such file or directory

at this point I thought I had best stop stumbling around and ask for help. 
My base system is Slackware LInux 10.0.

There should be a package named ruby or similar on Slackware, and that
has to be installed.

As it happens, there isn't, and this a full Slackware install. I have 
installed many versions of TeXlive over the years. I have upgraded Context 
several times.  This error message is new. 

If Ruby is necessary to make the minimal linux package offered on  Pragma 
functional it would be helpful to specify that in the readme. I thought the 
Pragma Linux TeX package was self-contained. It would also be helpful if a 
fmtutil.cnf file were included so that fmtutil would work. 

I will try downloading ruby from somewhere, installing that and moving 
forward. If that doesn't work then I will give up on the Pragma minmal 
distro. It is a good idea, but it doesn't work correctly.

About one week ago, I installed the latest teTeX-beta (about 100 MB to
download). And now I checked for usage of ruby:
ls -lu `which ruby`
-rwxr-xr-x1 root root 5363 Sep 23  2003 /usr/bin/ruby

So, it seems, ruby wasn't needed...

I've just made a little script for my brother to install the newest teTeX
on SuSE (should work also for other distributions).
Perhaps you'll find it useful, so I attach it to this message. Just run it
as root and then log in again to get the right PATH.
There is also the latest version of pdfTeX.

Cheers, Peter

[NTG-context] Help: Context update problem

2005-01-30 Thread Fei He
Hello folks,
 
I ran into this strange problem today. First, I was trying to use
Chinese in Context. After I generated those font files, it occurred to
me that I might want to run: texexec --make. However, I got the
following error message:

C:\localtexmf\tex\context\base\font-uni.tex
loading: context font macros / UNICODE Support
system (E-TEX): [line 423] \protected
! Undefined control sequence.

Naturally, I thought it might help by updating context again. But no
luck. Still run into the same problem. The font-uni.tex file is
untouched whatsoever. Does it have something to do with the Chinese
font? Thanks a lot in advance!!

Best,
Fei

It's something preliminary. Teh new website is generated automatically from xml 
files that also are used to genenerate the show-* interfaces; and since 
style.pdf is not yet described there, it is not present and accessible.

Last week i added a chapter about protruding and hz, so I may as well upload a 
new version some day soon

i wonder if it makes sense to add a biblography corner to the wiki, where users

so that ww have a nice 'example' bibliographic test file as well (xml version as
