Jason,

If it is not found, then one can only conclude it is not on your TeX-path. Try 
first to put the modules in the directory where also your primary source is.

[NTG-context] Minimal ConTeXt and texfont!

2010-12-13 Thread Verhaag, G.C.H.M.

Hi,

I've removed my old TeXLive installation from my Linux box, an decided 
to start using ConTeXt only!


So, I installed the ConTeXt minimals (from contextgarden) and everything 
seems to work just fine, but..


I want to try to install some new fonts and it is common practice to use 
texfont for that. ConTeXt comes with its own texfont, but when I type 
texfont at my linux-prompt, no texfont can be found? Do I need to 
install additional tools to be able to build new fonts?


Any suggestions? Thanks in advance!

Regards,
Gerard Verhaag

You normally don't need texfont nor any other tools.

What version of ConTeXt (MarkII or MarkIV) and if MarkII, which engine  
(pdfTeX or XeTeX) do you use? On which OS?
What kind of fonts do you want to use (OPenType, TrueType, PS Type1 or  
other)?


Have a look at the wiki* and Wolfgang's simplefonts[2] module (to  
avoid the need to write typescripts).

TeXfont used to be a common practice until the arrival of MKIV. It's
not maintained, it is somewhat buggy, it has been removed from
standard tools (though you can still make it work easily), but I would
strongly recommend you to use ConTeXt MKIV (LuaTeX instead of pdfTeX)
if you need non-texie fonts. In that case all you need to do is to put
your fonts into texmf-fonts or texmf-local under
tex/opentype/company/fontname (the part tex/opentype is the most
important part - assuming that you are indeed dealing with OpenType
fonts).

Alternatively you may configure OSFONTDIR to point to the folders
where you have your system fonts and they will be picked up
automatically. If you use XeTeX your system font should be found by
default.

You only need the right typescripts, but no font conversion at all.

I agree that digits, upper and lower case latin and greek does not capture

nabla={normal,italic}

or

nabla={bold,normal}


I came to work with some similar operators in differential geometry, so as I 
remember or I can find:


grad (also horizontally flipped greek Delta)
div (looking like normal greek Delta)
curl, rot - the same as div (but in R3 space, whilst div is for R1)
Laplace operator


Unlike Nabla, these characters do not have any bold or sans-serif 
variants, so it does not make sense to define math-mappings for them.


The only other character that I could find with multiple alternatives is 
the partial symbol. So, I suggest the following macro:


\definemathmappings % and \setupmathmappings
 []
 [digits=...,
  uclatin=,
  lclatin=,
  ucgreek=...,
  lcgreek=...,
  nabla=...,
  partial=...]

Other symbols (blackboard sum, differential operator, etc) are better 
handled by a dedicated macro rather than input mappings.


If there are no other concerns, Hans, Mojca, and I can take this offline.

[NTG-context] xml: test for attribute

test that shows what I'm trying to do:


\startbuffer[test]
a
  bsome text/b
  b important=differentmore text/b
/a
\stopbuffer

\startxmlsetups xml:testsetups
\xmlsetsetup{\xmldocument}{a|b}{xml:*}
\stopxmlsetups

Re: [NTG-context] xml: test for attribute

Hi all,

I thought I had done this and it was easy, but I can't find a solution:
I want to test whether a xml tag has an attribute and vary the typeset
content accordingly. There used to be \xmldoifelseempty, but that has
been commented out (lxml-ini.mkiv). What else could I use? Here's a
small test that shows what I'm trying to do:

\startbuffer[test]
a
bsome text/b
b important=differentmore text/b
/a
\stopbuffer

\startxmlsetups xml:testsetups
\xmlsetsetup{\xmldocument}{a|b}{xml:*}
\stopxmlsetups

\xmlregistersetup{xml:testsetups}

\startxmlsetups xml:a
\xmlflush{#1}
\stopxmlsetups

\startxmlsetups xml:b
\xmldoifelse{#1}{./[...@important]}
%\doifemptyelse{\expanded{\xmlatt{#1}{important}}}


something like this:

\doifelse {\xmlatt{#1}{important}} {} {
  \color[darkblue]{EMPTY: \xmlflush{#1}}
} {
  \color[darkred]{NOTEMPTY: \xmlatt{#1}{important}}
}
\par

or (untested): \xmldoifelse{#1}{./[...@important==''])

Re: [NTG-context] writebetweenlist regression (mkiv)

Hello there.

Currently \writebetweenlist doesn't work as advised. It inserts the
argument before the last entry of the list. The minimal example is
provided by the reference itself.

http://wiki.contextgarden.net/Reference/en/writebetweenlist

The rule is correctly inserted at http://live.contextgarden.net/ and in
the ConTeXt shipped with TeXlive 2010 (2010.05.24), but not with the
current beta and the 2010.07.30 version. mkii works fine.

It prints

--rule--
List entry A
List entry B


Unfortunately, I can confirm this with current version:

ver: 2010.12.12 17:06 MKIV

Help please!


There is a good reason for this. Inbetween has multiple usage and these 
are conflicting:


- in order to get the right page info associated it needs to be anchored 
in the text stream

- in that case a node can interfere with spacing and can come unexpected
- sometimes direct flushing is needed, sometimes delayed

btw, all these issues have been observed by users every now and then

Now, if unexpected interference is the hardest to track down, inbetween 
is an immediate action. In principle one can influence that but it's not 
that intuitive. So, I've now added an option to (1) the flushers and (2) 
the list placers.


The following example shows this:

\definelist[testlist][criterium=all]

\starttext

Regular list entries are bound to a specific location in order to
get the right pagenumber etc.\ associated. When pushing something
inbetween (in mkiv) it ends up directtly in the list. This is the
default because otherwise users will wonder why spacing might get
messed up (due to an unseen but present node). It is possible to
force a location by explicitly setting \type {location} to \type
{here}.

Another way to force a certain order is to set the \type {order}
variable when placing a list. The \type {command} option only
pushes commands into the right order, and \type {all} orders all
entries (which might be too much). In this case no specific
location is needed with the inbetween method. Maybe additional
mechanisms show up some day.

\subject{normal}  \placelist[testlist]
\subject{command} \placelist[testlist][order=command]
\subject{all} \placelist[testlist][order=all]

\page \input tufte

\writetolist [testlist]   {1} {One}
\writebetweenlist[testlist] 
{\blackrule[color=red,width=\hsize]}


\writebetweenlist[testlist][location=here]{\blackrule[color=blue,width=\hsize]}
\writetolist [testlist]   {2} {Second}
\writetolist [testlist][location=none]{W} {Whatever}
\writebetweenlist[testlist] 
{\blackrule[color=green,width=\hsize]}


\stoptext

I admit that it's not an easy mechanism but any default would at some 
point trigger complaints. So it probably needs to be wikified.

Re: [NTG-context] winter cleanup in the wiki

2010-12-13 Thread Jonas Stein

 there are (were) many duplicate installation pages in the
 wiki.

 I merged some and deleted a lot duplicate stuff.
 The work is not finished yet.

 i created a new category in the wiki:
 http://wiki.contextgarden.net/Category:deleteme

 These articles are merged to others and no longer needed.

 Is the part about Configuration files still up to date?
 http://wiki.contextgarden.net/Installation_hints

 Its last edited in 2008 and links to manuals from 2001 and 2003.

 maybe add a note there that it might make more sense to install the

here is that note:

Re: [NTG-context] installation on debian testing

2010-12-13 Thread Jonas Stein
within the time Norbert Preining prepared a new .deb package 
including context (2010.07.30-1) 

its status is experimental for now.

There will be context 2009 in debian 6.0 stable. 
So this might be a good solution for most debian users for the next
months (or years).

i have just testet it on debian testing (squeeze) and it works fine.

Here is how to do it:

1. Download the .deb 
http://packages.debian.org/experimental/all/context/download

2. run as root
dpkg -i context_2010.07.30-1_all.deb

3. work with context.

Thanks a lot to Norbert!

Re: [NTG-context] How about a forum

2010-12-13 Thread Jonas Stein

 wondering why there ist no forum for Context. I spend a lot of time 
 getting into new themes, and I always like the functions of forums.

What functions do you miss?

Have you tried the gmane mirror?
You can configure your newsreader to be coloured like a forum.
Some even support to exchange smileys to icons.

If you like to have a signature, you can write a line below -- 
If you want to show your avatar/face to the world 
you can use xface.

Its a evidence of good technology, that mailinglists and newsserver
still live in professional area after more then 20 years.

choose your favourite one here:

We should remove the links to these page before we delete 'em. There is a
