Re: [NTG-context] ConTeXt MKIV bug: Chinese left aligned does not work as should

 Hi, Hans:
 
 It seems that left aligned (flushright) does not work for chinese.
 I attach the minimal test files in the mail.
 To test the file, please download the zhfonts.tex from
 http://code.google.com/p/ctxnotes/downloads/list, and the adobe
 Chinese fonts.
 (I also mailed you these files long ago for other problems)

taco and i looked into this

it has to do with the fact that the intercharacter spacing has more 
stretch than the leftskip and since raggedright is achieved differently 
from raggedleft, there is no easy solution; we could make raggedright 
behave like raggedleft but that would influence hyphenation too much

however, there is a way out ...

\startbuffer
1中%
中%
中%
中%
\stopbuffer

\framedtext
 [align={broad,flushright},width=90mm]
 {\getbuffer}

\framedtext
 [align={broad,flushleft},width=90mm]
 {\getbuffer}

\framedtext
 [align=middle,width=90mm]
 {\getbuffer}

some time in the future we can think of language specific defaults, like

\let\raggedleft\veryraggedleft
\let\raggedleft\veryraggedright

for chinese but first we need to investigate to what extend we need such 
language specific defaults

adapting the leftskip node in the nodelist is also an option, but that 
might have unwanted side effects so best is to keep it under user control

make sure to wikify this ...

well, it all depends on hwo one defined raggedleft and raggedright; it

i'm pretty sure that there are more differences between context and

Peter Münster wrote:
 
 LuaTeX (and TeX/ConTeXt in general) is not compatible with security. The

Depends a bit on how you define security but it is true that context
does not 'do well' in restricted environments. The luatex executable
actually has a --safer switch (a la ghostscript) but if it would be
turned on, context mkiv wouldn't work.

 In my opinion, the only options for live.contextgarden.net are:

 a) just don't care, if there is a problem, restore from backup

this is the current approach, and restore hasn't been needed yet
(afaik).

 b) chroot jail

possible new approach, but I suspect it won't be implemented until
after a).

 c) virtual machine with virtual disk in non-persistent mode (at boot time
   the disk is always a fresh installation)

i doubt this could be made to work as-is (contextgarden.net itself
is a fairly limited virtual machine)

 - perhaps some other ideas...

A variation of c) may well be possible. Actually, if we can find funding
we could even move contextgarden.net + context/maps.aanhet.net to a
dedicated server. I could easily arrange hardware and a hosting spot
for that, but we would have to set up some kind of paypal construct
to get the finances sorted out. Patrick, Mojca, Hans, if there is
interest is such a solution, just let me know, and I will investigate
further.

[NTG-context] small problem with minimals

2008-11-10 Thread Thomas A. Schmitz
Hi all, esp. Mojca,

I have encountered a small problem with the minimals: some metafun  
stuff that Aditya and I use in our presentation module stopped working  
recently (sorry, I can't tell when exactly). The error message is

!luaTeX error (file lm-rmtt.enc): cannot find encoding file for reading
  == Fatal error occurred, no output PDF file produced!
MtxRun | fatal error, code: 70

which is a bit bizarre (I thought luatex didn't use any enc files?).  
Anyway, the same file compiles fine with the same version of ConTeXt  
and luatex under texlive 2008 because there, the enc file is present:

luatools lm-rmtt.enc
/usr/local/texlive/2008/texmf-dist/fonts/enc/dvips/lm/lm-rmtt.enc

Should this file be added to the minimals or is there a different  
problem somewhere down the line? If absolutely necessary, I can make a  
minimal example, but it would take a lot of work...

All best

Thomas

Re: [NTG-context] bug in latest beta?

 Hi all,

 the following code used to work, but broke in the latest beta. \at
 works well, but \in appears as a math member of set symbol ( ∈ ).

You could use the last stable for the moment.

 \placefigure[here][abc]{xyz}{123}

 abc \at[abc].
 abc \in[abc].

 \stoptext
 


If you still want to use the last beta use the following patch,
Hans removed a few lines of code from enco-ini.mkiv and this
breaks the \in command because it is redefined later in the core
from the math commands.

\def\definecommand#1 #2 %
   {\setvalue{\string#1}{\dohandlecommand{#1}}%
\setvalue{\characterencoding\string#1}{#2}}

 In a metafun label (which I can't replace with \sometxt):

 label.top(decimal value,origin) ;

 label.top(textext(decimal value),origin) ;

Maybe that's the reason ...
decimal value
will be typeset with metapost, while textext will be typeset with TeX.

I have a feeling that Hans defined lmtt as default (fallback) font
somewhere in metafun code, so that one gets used.

font-ini.mkii:% [texnansi-lmtt10]
font-ini.mkii:% [ec-lmtt10]
font-ini.mkii:% [texnansi-lmtt10]
font-ini.mkiv:% [texnansi-lmtt10]
meta-ini.mkii:  defaultfont:=rm-lmtt10;
meta-ini.mkiv:defaultfont:=rm-lmtt10;
meta-tex.mkii:\definefontsynonym[MPtxtfont][texnansi-lmtt10]

But I have no idea when this has happened. I remember having to add
texnansi-lmtt because of XeTeX complaining of (most probably) exactly
the same thing. There are probably zero benefits if this gets fixed
back.

 forget about sometxt ...

[unless you work with mkii]

 that's mojca's personal hack

Suggestion that I need to forget XeTeX I guess :) :) :)

 That will be great. It will be nice to have label.top(a string) be 
 equivalent to label.top(textext(a string)). That will work with both 
 mkii and mkiv (and xetex). This way, in MKIV, one can forget about 
 \sometxt and textext :-)

only mkiv (ok, i can make some mechanism for mkii using multipass but 
extending mkii has a real low priority)

 There's indeed something with the rounded corner option...

technically this had to with the fact that only glyphs, rules and 
leaders are taken into account when postprocessing the node list for 
special code injection, so i now insert a zero dimension rule

Hi, Hans:

wikified in http://wiki.contextgarden.net/Chinese_Flush_Right

And I hope there is a perfect solution soon  (it is strange that LaTeX

 Hi, Hans:

 It seems that left aligned (flushright) does not work for chinese.
 I attach the minimal test files in the mail.
 To test the file, please download the zhfonts.tex from
 http://code.google.com/p/ctxnotes/downloads/list, and the adobe
 Chinese fonts.
 (I also mailed you these files long ago for other problems)

 taco and i looked into this

 it has to do with the fact that the intercharacter spacing has more
 stretch than the leftskip and since raggedright is achieved differently
 from raggedleft, there is no easy solution; we could make raggedright
 behave like raggedleft but that would influence hyphenation too much

 however, there is a way out ...

 \startbuffer
 1中%
 中%
 中%
 中%
 \stopbuffer

 \framedtext
 [align={broad,flushright},width=90mm]
 {\getbuffer}

 \framedtext
 [align={broad,flushleft},width=90mm]
 {\getbuffer}

 \framedtext
 [align=middle,width=90mm]
 {\getbuffer}

 some time in the future we can think of language specific defaults, like

 \let\raggedleft\veryraggedleft
 \let\raggedleft\veryraggedright

 for chinese but first we need to investigate to what extend we need such
 language specific defaults

 adapting the leftskip node in the nodelist is also an option, but that
 might have unwanted side effects so best is to keep it under user control

 make sure to wikify this ...

Re: [NTG-context] ConTeXt Live not working

2008-11-10 Thread Patrick Gundlach
Hi all,


 In my opinion, the only options for live.contextgarden.net are:

 a) just don't care, if there is a problem, restore from backup

 this is the current approach, and restore hasn't been needed yet
 (afaik).

Right.


 b) chroot jail

 possible new approach, but I suspect it won't be implemented until
 after a).

Well, for the new server I will chroot TeX, I am playing with it. So
until then a) is the approach (keep fingers crossed).


 c) virtual machine with virtual disk in non-persistent mode (at boot time
   the disk is always a fresh installation)

 i doubt this could be made to work as-is (contextgarden.net itself
 is a fairly limited virtual machine)

That is true.

 - perhaps some other ideas...

Maybe I will run live on another machine, but first I will move all the
stuff to the new server (time is so precious these days...).

Patrick

 maybe a bsd-like jail(8).
 http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/jails-intro.html

 It is said that linux-vserver had the same feature. I hadn't tried that yet.
I've done limited tests at home and it worked wery well.
Setup is not so hard, but requires some FreeBSD knowledge.
I think should be the right solution.

Cheers
