Still no luck!!! :-(

Okay, so I got really upset with teTeX so I decided to get rid of it.  Earlier 
I said that I was using Fedora Core 2.  Now I am sitting on a SuSE 8.0 Pro 
machine.  I did the following:

1)  Uninstalled whatever TeX came with SuSE
2)  Downloaded and installed from texlive2003-inst-20030928.iso
3)  I chose not to install latex.  Just context and pdftex alongwith whatever 
texlive said about anything being essential files
4)  Next I wiped off whatever ConTeXt came with texlive and followed 
instructions on this page:

http://home.salamander.com/~wmcclain/context-help.html

to install the latest ConTeXt from pragma website.

5) Then I found that adobekb.tex was still NOT installed on my system---yes 
the latest ConTeXt from pragma-ade still does not have adobekb.tex.  But as 
Hans suggested, I do have the file type-akb.tex.  As Patrick suggested, I 
downloaded and installed adobekb.tex in the TeX tree.

6)  So after all this, I try both type-akb and adobekb and the palatino font 
still refuses to cooperate.

Here are the errors that I am getting:

Re: [NTG-context] Re: How to use PostScript font

2004-08-21 Thread Salman Khilji
I found out that while trying to install the latest ConTeXt over whatever came 
with texlive2003-inst-20030928.iso, I screwed up somewhere and ConTeXt would 
not even generate me a pdf file with cmr fonts.

So here is what I did.

1) I deleted everything about TeX from my system
2) Installed TeXLive from the iso with default options.  I did not change 
anything.  Just accepted the defaults.
3) I did not install the latest ConTeXt.  I think I will be fine with whatever 
comes with TeXLive as of Sept, 2003.
4) Now I can generate a hello world pdf file with cmr fonts just fine.
5) Yes, I do have the type-akb.tex on my system.
6) On the following:

\usetypescriptfile[type-akb]
\usetypescript[palatino][\defaultencoding]
\setupbodyfont[palatino,12pt]

Re: [NTG-context] Re: How to use PostScript font (SOLVED)

2004-08-21 Thread Salman Khilji
Okay.  Problem solved.  The thing is that I did not ask the texlive 
distribution to install the extra fonts package.  The palatino fonts were 
part of the extra fonts. 

Now I have another question.  It seems like \setupbodyfont[palatino] produces 
different results than \setupbodyfont[ppl].
The former tries to use palatino in all the variations in the following 
example.  The palatino fonts seems to be missing the serif variant, so the 
\ss and the normal lines look the same---i.e ConTeXt decided to use the same 
roman variant for both the \rm and the \ss line.  Even the equation uses some 
sort of postscript font that I am not familiar with.

The latter---\setupbodyfont[ppl]---is not very forceful---it uses palatino in 
the \rm, \em, and \sl lines.  Everywhere else the CMR font is used.

What causes this behavior?

[NTG-context] Custom Numbering Problem

2004-08-11 Thread Salman Khilji
Two problems:

1)  With the following:

\setuphead[section][ownnumber=yes]
\setupbodyfont[cmr,12pt]
\starttext
\completecontent
\section{1a0101}{Objective}
There is no objective at this moment.
\stoptext


There is no spacing between the text 1a0101 and Objective in the table of 
contents---this looks really ugly.

However, what I really want is the ownnumber to apply to \title, not a 
\section.  So if I do this:

\setuphead[title][ownnumber=yes]
\setupbodyfont[cmr,12pt]
\starttext
\completecontent
\title{1a0101}{Minimum Radius Turn}
\section{Objective}
There is no objective at this moment.
\stoptext

Then the number 1a0101 does not appear right next to a title. (I only see 
Minimum Radius Turn as opposed to the expected 1a0101  Minimum Radius 
Turn.  Also my \section{Objective} has numbering.  I thought numbering was 
turned off by default on \title \section \subsection etc.

[NTG-context] PDFTeX sources

2004-07-29 Thread Salman Khilji
1)  I want to know the simplest way (and the minimal way) to compile PDFTeX on 
Windows.  From the manual, I see that you have to download

web-7.3.tar.gz
web2c-7.3.tar.gz
pdftex.tar.gz

However, this assumes that you have ./configure available (means UNIX or 
Cygwin).  While I have been using Linux for the past two years, I'm afraid, I 
am too incompetent, dumb, lazy, stupid, and stubborn to learn autoconf and 
autotools---I want to know exactly what steps are performed while compiling 
the program and it would be best understood if I had a simple Visual C++ 
project file to work with.

I want to be able to compile pdfTeX from sources using an already available 
DSP (MS Visual C++ project file)---this means it should somehow use an 
already existing config.h file.

I downloaded the MikTeX sources, but it comes with 65535 other files and 
directories that I do not need and also mandates the download of Cygwin.

2)  Basically, I want to learn a little about the internals of pdfTeX to 
investigate if I can take the PDF specific C source code out of it and 
somehow use then in the TeX++ project (which is a reincarnation of CommonTeX, 
which was an implementation of TeX written in C from scratch by Pat Monardo).  
I must admit that TeX++ is a piece of cake to install and compile simply 
because there is no autoconf and autotools to convolute the project.

I have been reading TeX, the program these days from cover to cover and 
comparing the source code to the TeX++ sources and the two are as close as it 
can get.  So I suppose, one could take PDFTeX, strip it out of the web2c 
files, massage the rest to fit TeX++, and have an easy to compile, and extend 
version of TeX that produces PDF files directly.

Any inputs on this matter?

[NTG-context] How to read syntax descriptions

2004-07-14 Thread Salman Khilji
In the beginner's manual, we have for \startitemize the following:

\startitemize[..,..,..][..,..=..,..] ... \stopitemize

I was wondering how do you read this in english?  Based on the examples, am I 
correct to say the following?

1)  The \startitemize is optionally followed by a comma separated list of 
parameters enclosed in brackets.

2) Then a set of key-value pairs enclosed in brackets follows.  Again this is 
optional.

If this is correct, then what about \setupitemize?.  It says

\setupitemize[.1.][..,.2.,..][..,..=..,..]

So again let me guess

.1. stands for a number
The third set could be key-value pairs

What about the set in the middle?

Can we have an explanation for these please.

Salman
