Re: [NTG-context] installing ConTeXt on ARM linux

2017-10-06 Thread Floris van Manen
i have this snazzy little €30 quad core ARM board with 8GB eMMC.
It runs my python3 scripts at 1/3 the speed of my MacBookPro mid 2009.

http://wiki.friendlyarm.com/wiki/index.php/NanoPi_NEO_Plus2

To me it looks like a perfect network ConTeXt server.
If there is something i can do to get the ConTeXt ARM going, please let me know.

We didn't yet attempt to set up 64-bit binaries, even though I admit a
crime of having Pine64 [1] in a drawer since the end of the
Kickstarted campaign (which was more than a year ago). I even
considered bringing it to the ConTeXt meeting and setting it up there,
but I only set up the Raspberry (there was enough of other things to
do and an unique opportunity to talk to other developers, so too much
hacking would not be desirable).

I can try to set it up (the only problem is that I will be away for
nearly a month and might not manage to set it up before I leave) in
which case you would get all the binaries working automatically. The
other alternative is that someone else builds both TeX Live binaries
and LuaTeX for now and we add a new machine to our buildfarm later. In
any case we need to manually add that architecture to the list to
start syncing the necessary binaries.

Johannes was thinking of adding binaries to TeX Live.

[NTG-context] Installing context on a web server

2013-07-19 Thread Stéphanie Vilayphiou

Hello,
I am using Context to produce PDF out of a website.
It works well on my local machine, but I can't seem to install Context 
system-wise on my server.


I first installed Context as a single-user on the server with 
first-setup.sh.

Then I realized I needed Context to be accessed by any user.

So I tried to run first-setup.sh in /opt/context as root.
First of all, I have troubles with rsync connections through first-setup.sh.



rsync: failed to connect to contextgarden.net: Connection timed out (110)
rsync error: error in socket IO (code 10) at clientserver.c(122) 
[Receiver=3.0.7]

So I copy/pasted the files from the single-user install in /opt/context/.
Then Context runs only if I source it with: source 
/opt/context/tex/setuptex but putting it in my $PATH doesn't work and 
it disappears from my path when I come back to su.



root@erba-web1:~# echo $PATH
/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin
root@erba-web1:~# PATH=$PATH:/opt/context/tex/texmf-linux-64/bin

root@erba-web1:~# exit
$ sudo su
root@erba-web1:/home/admin_esad# echo $PATH
/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin


(actually this $PATH thing doesn't work either on my local machine, I 
have to source it every time I want to use it...)


Any idea?

Does anyone else have that problem? Does root user get proper DNS settings?

I can check the server logs, but it's more likely that there are some
weird server settings on your side if it works for regular user and
only fails when you run sudo. Another (not likely, but possible)
option is that you actually run a different binary when you use sudo.

 So I copy/pasted the files from the single-user install in /opt/context/.
 Then Context runs only if I source it with: source

This is expected.

 (actually this $PATH thing doesn't work either on my local machine, I have

 Any idea?

What distribution is running on the server? See for example

http://askubuntu.com/questions/128413/setting-the-path-so-it-applies-to-all-users-including-root-sudo

You need to edit some configuration file that applies path to all
users. I would suggest hardcoding the path in that system setting
rather than sourcing setuptex. Please also be careful about setting
TEXMFCACHE path. Personally I would create a texmf.cnf file somewhere
next to texmf-foo trees setting that variable to something that won't
clash between users (each user needs his own TEXMFCACHE path).

Re: [NTG-context] Installing ConTeXt in Windows (XP)

2011-08-15 Thread Cecil Westerhof
2011/8/12 Willi Egger w.eg...@boede.nl

 just out of curiosity I installed TeXWorks under Windows (XP).

 In order to let TeXWorks use the minimals one needs to set things up.

 1. create a batch file e.g. TW-context.bat with the following content:

 call c:\context\tex\setuptex.bat c:\context\tex
 context %~dpn1.tex

 I saved the file in the Owners folder.
 Of course the path in the call statement must reflect the situation on your
 machine.

 2 Start TeXWorks
 3 Open under 'Edit' 'Preferences' and there the tab 'Typeseting'
 4 Add in the top window with plus the path to the batch-file e.g.
 C:/Documents and Settings/Owner
 5 Add with + in the processing tools window a new entry, fill the
 configuration screen in: Name: e.g. ContextMKIV
 6 Fill the Programme: (easiest with the Browse button) C:/Documents and
 Settings/Owner/TW-context.bat
 7 Add with + an new argument and fill in $basename
 8 Click the checkbox to have TW showing the generated pdf
 9 Click OK
 10 Change the default tool to be used to ContextMKIV
 11 Click OK

 and you are done!


For one reason or another it does not work. I think because the batch setups
an environment and does not compile the source. I do not get an error
message, but the pdf is not generated.

When I open a DOS prompt, I need to execute the batch file to get context
recognized as a command. When I execute context after executing the batch
file, the pdf is generated.

But when I change the batch file for:
C:/context/tex/texmf-mswin/bin/context.exe

The compilation is started, but does not work correctly, because the
environment is not set correctly. I tried executing the batch file to set
the environment, but that is not recognised in TeXworks.

I first tried to change the batch file and let it start TeXworks. That
worked, but then I had a better idea. In step four I set the path to:
C:/context/tex/texmf-mswin/bin

And now it works completely correct I think.

[NTG-context] Installing Context Minimals on Windows

2010-07-09 Thread John Devereux

Hi,

I normally use linux, but I now need to install context on Windows (7).

Right now the minimals installation fails for me in various ways,
depending on how I do it.

Running the graphical installer I get two dialogs 

update failed error code 1 and make failed error code 1.

Using the command line method I get a message about a vtable error when
I try to run context. (It looked like the one mentioned in earlier
postings, sorry I don't have the exact message now).

I want just MKIV + extras (and intend to try TexWorks).

Any hints appreciated.

Thanks,

I tried that.

But I tried it again, and got something different for some reason, the

unknown script context.lua... message.

After a few attempts it looks like for me I need to initialise with a plain:

  tex\setuptex.bat (as per wiki)

rather than 

  c:\context\tex\setuptex.bat c:\context\tex

(Which is what I was told to do by first-setup.bat)

And then it is working!

 Thanks. What confused me was that on my Mac the icon for the setuptex

 Anyway, the revised setuptex works perfectly with the
 ConTeXtMinimals.engine. Thank you again.

 But the question now is, which solution do you recommend? As a user,
 my preference is for the one that leaves setuptex alone and focuses on
 the engines that TeXShop uses, since it makes switching form MKII to
 MKIV very easy to do. (I would add that, as things stand now, I also
 have easy access to my Texlive 2007 setup.) However, I am much more
 interested in keeping my setup in line with development path that you,
 Hans, and the others set for the minimals, since, as I gather, they
 are the future of ConTeXt.

If *.engine works for you, feel free to use that one. You don't need
to bother about setuptex, really, unless you need to use TeX in bash.
And TeXWorks might be the new future of TeXShop anyway ...

[NTG-context] Installing ConTeXt Minimals on a Mac ... and using bibtex

2008-09-02 Thread Michael Green
I have the minimals installed in ~/Applications/context/

Context works great. However, I'm having trouble with bibtex.

[1] I export the following variables before using context.

. ~/Applications/context/tex/setuptex ~/Applications/context/tex
export TEXMFHOME='$HOME/Library/texmf'
export TEXMF='{$TEXMFHOME,!!$TEXMFPROJECT,!!$TEXMFFONTS,!! 
$TEXMFLOCAL,!!$TEXMFCONTEXT,!!$TEXMFEXTRA,!!$TEXMFMAIN}';

(I added export PATH=/Applications/ConTeXtMinimals/tex/texmf-osx-intel/ 
bin:$PATH but that didn't seem to make a difference in a couple of  
quick trials)

[2] The problem is that the minimal's bibtex can't find the bib file  
that I have stored in ~/Library/texmf/bibtex/bib/

It reports: I couldn't open database file bib-name.bib and I found  
no database files---while reading file file-name.aux

[3] which bibtex yields the path to the bibtex installed with the  
minimals:

/path-to-my-user-account/Applications/context/tex/texmf-osx-intel/bin/ 
bibtex

[4] When I open a new shell session, which bibtex points to /usr/ 
texbin/bibtex. In this new shell, bibtex finds the bib file.

It's a small thing, but if there's some other setting to make bibtex  
work in the same shell session that context does, that would be nice.

Thanks!

You need to add ~/Library/texmf/bibtex/bib to the variable BIBINPUTS, 
either in texmf.cnf or in your .bashrc/calling script.

 minimals:

 /path-to-my-user-account/Applications/context/tex/texmf-osx-intel/bin/

You have two different installations of tex on your computer. By default 
the old distribution is used. When you run setuptex (with appropriate 
arguments) the new distribution is used first.

I probably told you wrong, but:
1.) you have HOMETEXMF first and then TEXMFHOME: these need to be
equal
2.) unless you are following (3), don't modify the file in texmf/,
but create
/Applications/ConTeXtMinimals/tex/texmf-local/web2c/texmf.cnf
instead, else the file will be overwritten at first update
3.) even then I'm not completely sure, but I guess that  
environmental

variables override settings in texmf.cnf, so you either need to
a) modify setuptex (rename it and run the renamed file instead of
setuptex)
b) only export PATH and not run setuptex at all; in that case values
from texmf.cnf will be used
- maybe you need to run mktexlsr or luatools --generate




OK. One quick reply just to see if I am on track.

I have created /Applications/ConTeXtMinimals/tex/texmf-local/web2c/
texmf.cnf
where texmf.cnf now has
export HOMETEXMF=~/Library/texmf
export TEXMF='{$HOMETEXMF,$TEXMFLOCAL,!!$TEXMFOS,!!$TEXMFCONTEXT,!!


(hopefully the line continues ...)

The lines you have written here belong to setuptex, not to
texmf.cnf. The syntax for setuptex is slightly different.

HOMETEXMF = ~/Library/texmf
# single line
TEXMF = {$HOMETEXMF,!!$TEXMFPROJECT,!!$TEXMFFONTS,!!$TEXMFLOCAL,!! 
$TEXMFCONTEXT,!!$TEXMFEXTRA,!!$TEXMFMAIN}


But try putting™
  export HOMETEXMF=~/Library/texmf
# single line
  export TEXMF='{$HOMETEXMF,$TEXMFLOCAL,!!$TEXMFOS,!!$TEXMFCONTEXT,!! 
$TEXMFEXTRA,!!$TEXMFMAIN}'


into setuptex (replace the old variables). The problem is that if you
adapt texmf.cnf only, you still override those settings with setuptex.


I hope I have understood this properly.  I now have
HOMETEXMF = ~/Library/texmf
TEXMF = {$HOMETEXMF,!!$TEXMFPROJECT,!!$TEXMFFONTS,!!$TEXMFLOCAL,!!
in my /ConteXtMinimals/tex/texmf-local/texmf.cnf.

I have also inserted the lines
export HOMETEXMF=~/Library/texmf
and
export TEXMF='{$HOMETEXMF,$TEXMFLOCAL,!!$TEXMFOS,!!$TEXMFCONTEXT,!! 
$TEXMFEXTRA,!!$TEXMFMAIN}'


into a file formed by copying the content of setuptex.

But before I can test this, assuming that so far is so good, I need to  
turn my setuptex (which is natively a .tex file) into unix executable.  
How do I do this?


Alan


There is one thing that you could try (I never use TeXShop, but
there's a change that it works):


~/Library/TeXShop/Engines/ConTeXt-pdfTeX.engine

#!/bin/bash
export PATH=/Applications/ConTeXtMinimals/tex/texmf-osx-intel:$PATH
texexec $1

~/Library/TeXShop/Engines/ConTeXt-luaTeX.engine

#!/bin/bash
export PATH=/Applications/ConTeXtMinimals/tex/texmf-osx-intel:$PATH
export TEXMFCACHE=/Applications/ConTeXtMinimals/tex/texmf-cache
context $1

~/Library/TeXShop/Engines/ConTeXt-XeTeX.engine

#!/bin/bash
export PATH=/Applications/ConTeXtMinimals/tex/texmf-osx-intel:$PATH
texexec --xtx $1

(sorry for two different proposals - I should probably only send you a
single one)

Thanks. What confused me was that on my Mac the icon for the setuptex

Anyway, the revised setuptex works perfectly with the  
ConTeXtMinimals.engine. Thank you again.

But the question now is, which solution do you recommend? As a user,  
my preference is for the one that leaves setuptex alone and focuses on  
the engines that TeXShop uses, since it makes switching form MKII to  
MKIV very easy to do. (I would add that, as things stand now, I also  
have easy access to my Texlive 2007 setup.) However, I am much more  
interested in keeping my setup in line with development path that you,  
Hans, and the others set for the minimals, since, as I gather, they  
are the future of ConTeXt.

I'm sorry for not replying earlier.

On Sat, Aug 30, 2008 at 12:16 PM, Alan Bowen wrote:
 What follows are some queries that I will be happy to write up for the wiki.
 The aim (hope?) is to develop a set of instructions for installing the

 the world who help me in producing various publications; and since they too
 are not unix savvy, I need such instructions if we are to keep our
 installations functioning and up to date.)
 Once the ConTeXt minimals are installed in the Applications folder and the
 user can run
 \starttext
 Hello world!
 \stoptext
 which is where the wiki (Installationsection 1.2) currently leaves off,
 there still remain a few tasks.
 Specifically,
 (a) getting this ConTeXt installation to recognize a personal texmf
 directory

I usually put my files to texmf-local. Well, no, I actually copy
setuptex into mytex and make local modifications there, so that I
can include my own texmf trees (ugly solution). We just got a
complaint about non-existant TEXMFHOME during the conference. We took
setuptex from Hans' distribution and did not touch TEXMFHOME at all.
The problem is that Hans wanted to prevent old local files to
interefere with standalone tree, completely isolated from the outer
world.

We can either:
- fix setuptex, but I would like to have Hans' permission to do it
- create another setupfriendlytex :) and modify whatever we want there

The fix is super-easy: change
export HOMETEXMF=/nonexist
into
export HOMETEXMF=~/.texmf
(with or without the dot - up to you; MacTeX uses ~/Library/texmf or
something similar, I think, but should check)

And then add TEXMFHOME to the list:

export 
TEXMF='{$TEXMFHOME,$TEXMFLOCAL,!!$TEXMFOS,!!$TEXMFCONTEXT,!!$TEXMFEXTRA,!!$TEXMFMAIN}'

But I need someone to tell me to do that

 (b) running the various binaries (e.g., texmfstart, ctxtools) in
 /Applications/ConTeXtMinimals from Terminal

You can create ~/.bash_profile and put one of those lines into it (I
suggest (a), but (b) would suffice):
a) . /Applications/ConTeXtMinimals/tex/setuptex
b) export PATH=/Applications/ConTeXtMinimals/tex/texmf-osx-intel/bin:$PATH

Then, once you start a new shell, you'll see the programs in your
shell. /Applications/ConTeXtMinimals/tex assumes that you have
installed your files to that folder. Change accordingly. The minimals
are not a GUI program, so I would rather put it to some other folder,
but that's up to users. (I have the files simply in my home dir.)

The main problem is that GUI programs won't see that ~/.bash_profile,
so you need to follow the slighly off rules for TeXShop where there
are indeed quite some mistakes.

Can you please send the output of
find /Applications/ConTeXtMinimals | head -n 20
I suspect that you were setting the wrong folder during download of minimals.

 (c) establishing synchronization between  PDF output and its ConTeXt source.
 Currently, it does not seem to work (with TeXShop at least)
 Note, in the latest TeXShop there is
 Added support for SyncTeX. SyncTeX is new synchronization technology by
 Jerome Laurens which is included in TeX Live 2008 (but not earlier TeX
 distributions). The technology is built directly into pdfTeX and XeTeX. In
 modern TeX distributions, most typesetting actually calls pdfetex (even if
 using latex to output a dvi file), and thus the technology is available for
 such typesetting. To use the technology, add the flag --synctex=1
 Any advice on how to do (a), (b), and (c) will be much appreciated.

You can try
texexec --passon=-synctex=1 filename
but I didn't manage to make it work - it always pointed back to
\stoptext or \page, just as it pointed to the end of minipage in
LaTeX. Apart from the fact that I wasn't sure which tool to use to
make rsync work (when I was testing, TeXShop didn't support synctex
yet, TeXWorks behaved weird, and one would need to write support for
TextMate first, but when Patrick tried it, he have up after
discovering that it didn't work anyway).

While answering you I just got a reply from Jérôme:

 The problem comes from the synctex parser.
 I made different experiments and forgot to test the latest one with context.
 I will upload the new versions soon but I am afraid the various viewers must 
 be updated.
 You will have to wait a little longer...

So sadly I need to repeat the last sentence from him ...

I usually put my files to texmf-local. Well, no, I actually copy
setuptex into mytex and make local modifications there, so that I
can include my own texmf trees (ugly solution). We just got a
complaint about non-existant TEXMFHOME during the conference. We took
setuptex from Hans' distribution and did not touch TEXMFHOME at all.
The problem is that Hans wanted to prevent old local files to
interefere with standalone tree, completely isolated from the outer
world.

We can either:
- fix setuptex, but I would like to have Hans' permission to do it
- create another setupfriendlytex :) and modify whatever we want  
there


The fix is super-easy: change
   export HOMETEXMF=/nonexist
into
   export HOMETEXMF=~/.texmf
(with or without the dot - up to you; MacTeX uses ~/Library/texmf or
something similar, I think, but should check)

And then add TEXMFHOME to the list:

export TEXMF='{$TEXMFHOME,$TEXMFLOCAL,!!$TEXMFOS,!!$TEXMFCONTEXT,!! 
$TEXMFEXTRA,!!$TEXMFMAIN}'


But I need someone to tell me to do that


(b) running the various binaries (e.g., texmfstart, ctxtools) in
/Applications/ConTeXtMinimals from Terminal


You can create ~/.bash_profile and put one of those lines into it (I
suggest (a), but (b) would suffice):
a) . /Applications/ConTeXtMinimals/tex/setuptex
b) export PATH=/Applications/ConTeXtMinimals/tex/texmf-osx-intel/bin: 
$PATH


Then, once you start a new shell, you'll see the programs in your
shell. /Applications/ConTeXtMinimals/tex assumes that you have
installed your files to that folder. Change accordingly. The minimals
are not a GUI program, so I would rather put it to some other folder,
but that's up to users. (I have the files simply in my home dir.)

The main problem is that GUI programs won't see that ~/.bash_profile,
so you need to follow the slighly off rules for TeXShop where there
are indeed quite some mistakes.

Can you please send the output of
   find /Applications/ConTeXtMinimals | head -n 20
I suspect that you were setting the wrong folder during download of  
minimals.


(c) establishing synchronization between  PDF output and its  
ConTeXt source.

Currently, it does not seem to work (with TeXShop at least)
Note, in the latest TeXShop there is
Added support for SyncTeX. SyncTeX is new synchronization  
technology by
Jerome Laurens which is included in TeX Live 2008 (but not earlier  
TeX
distributions). The technology is built directly into pdfTeX and  
XeTeX. In

.bash_profile should be saved as a text file at the top level of  
your user account. That is, it should go right alongside the  
directories that are standardly installed, like Documents, Library,  
Movies, Music, Pictures, Public, and Sites.


Note 1: the dot in front means it won't be visible in the Finder,  
absent further fiddling and trickery.


Note 2: if you're using TeXShop, I think that these sorts of  
instructions go in engine files. If you look at the mac newbie  
installation instructions, you'll see that the bit about  
source ... is put into an engine file. I suspect, though I don't  
know, that the TEXMFHOME and TEXMF lines would be incorporated in a  
similar way.


This may be an easier route to trying this sort of thing out than  
using .bash_profile. It may be *much* easier if you're supporting  
other people. Again, I don't know.


By the way, Oliver B's problem appears to be resolved. Changes in  
the personal texmf tree are picked up now, without further  
intervention by the user.


Good luck!

Michael

 I will wait for word from you about the changes you suggest to fix (a) and
 for Jérôme to fix the sync parser (c).
 I tried both
  . /Applications/ConTeXtMinimals/tex/setuptex

Sorry ... Arthur told me that he fixed some issue, but it still
doesn't work (and probably has no chance to work), so you still need
both parts
. /Applications/ConTeXtMinimals/tex/setuptex
/Applications/ConTeXtMinimals/tex

 and
 export PATH=/Applications/ConTeXtMinimals/tex/texmf-osx-intel/bin:$PATH
 in ~/.bash_profile file (that is, in Users/alancbowen)
 but when I typed
 texmfstart ctxtools --contextversion
 it listed only those in my texlive2007 distribution---no mention of the
 ConTeXtMinimals.

I forgot to tell you that you need to either:
- run that command manually
- run bash
- open a new Terminal
after you do the changes

You don't need to run texmfstart, it's OK to call just ctxtools, but
--contextversion seems to be broken in the minimals (some broken
functionality in kpathsea-mimicking library).

You should be able to use
context --version
If context doesn't work, it means that you didn't set the PATH properly.

For setting HOMETEXMF you can help yourself, though it would be nice
if we provided a solution that worked out of the box. But I would like
to get a confirmation from Hans that it's OK to do that.

 where texmf.cnf now has

 export TEXMF='{$HOMETEXMF,$TEXMFLOCAL,!!$TEXMFOS,!!$TEXMFCONTEXT,!!

(hopefully the line continues ...)

The lines you have written here belong to setuptex, not to
texmf.cnf. The syntax for setuptex is slightly different.

HOMETEXMF = ~/Library/texmf
# single line
TEXMF = 
{$HOMETEXMF,!!$TEXMFPROJECT,!!$TEXMFFONTS,!!$TEXMFLOCAL,!!$TEXMFCONTEXT,!!$TEXMFEXTRA,!!$TEXMFMAIN}

But try putting
   export HOMETEXMF=~/Library/texmf
# single line
   export 
TEXMF='{$HOMETEXMF,$TEXMFLOCAL,!!$TEXMFOS,!!$TEXMFCONTEXT,!!$TEXMFEXTRA,!!$TEXMFMAIN}'

into setuptex (replace the old variables). The problem is that if you
adapt texmf.cnf only, you still override those settings with setuptex.

There is one thing that you could try (I never use TeXShop, but
there's a change that it works):


~/Library/TeXShop/Engines/ConTeXt-pdfTeX.engine

#!/bin/bash
export PATH=/Applications/ConTeXtMinimals/tex/texmf-osx-intel:$PATH

~/Library/TeXShop/Engines/ConTeXt-XeTeX.engine

#!/bin/bash
export PATH=/Applications/ConTeXtMinimals/tex/texmf-osx-intel:$PATH
texexec --xtx $1

(sorry for two different proposals - I should probably only send you a
single one)

Well, surprisingly a simple

works fine here (Linux + Zsh shell).

Mocja---Sorry! I should have added that with the ConTeXt-pdftex.engine

the desired outcome without changing setuptex.


Still, I will test out your first proposal tomorrow and report.

 add the flag --synctex=1

 Any advice on how to do (a), (b), and (c) will be much appreciated.

I installed ConTeXt Minimals in my home directory's Applications  
folder (not the applications folder for the system as a whole). I'm  
reluctant to write in because my understanding of what I'm doing is  
shallow and I haven't used my solution beyond a few simple tests.

With that said, adding the following three lines to .bash_profile  
seems to work for me.

source ~/Applications/context/tex/setuptex ~/Applications/context/tex
TEXMFHOME=$HOME/Library/texmf
TEXMF={$TEXMFHOME,!!$TEXMFPROJECT,!!$TEXMFFONTS,!!$TEXMFLOCAL,!! 
$TEXMFCONTEXT,!!$TEXMFEXTRA,!!$TEXMFMAIN}

Here is how I understand what I did.

(A) I think that the second and third lines (TEXMFHOME ... and  
TEXMF ...) handle issue (a).

I copied them from a message I read on the developer list.

http://archive.contextgarden.net/message/ 
20080607.102038.6212fc3c.en.html

I should add that the author, Oliver Buerschaper wrote to complain  
that additions to the personal texmf tree were not automatically  
recognized. He had to run luatools --generate again after changing  
something. I have no idea if this has been fixed since June, when he  
wrote his message. I assume it has, but haven't tested it.

(B) I think that the first line (source ...) handles issue (b). It  
tells the shell to look for TeX binaries in ~/Applications/context/tex.

This is the second instruction from the Linux/Mac/BSD section of the  
wiki's installation page, modified for my particular case.

 something. I have no idea if this has been fixed since June, when he
 wrote his message. I assume it has, but haven't tested it.

 (B) I think that the first line (source ...) handles issue (b). It
 tells the shell to look for TeX binaries in ~/Applications/context/ 
 tex.

 This is the second instruction from the Linux/Mac/BSD section of the
 wiki's installation page, modified for my particular case.

Thanks, Michael; this is very helpful. I will prepare a .bash_profile
file and try it out. Where did you put your .bash_profile file?

Alan


.bash_profile should be saved as a text file at the top level of your  
user account. That is, it should go right alongside the directories  
that are standardly installed, like Documents, Library, Movies, Music,  
Pictures, Public, and Sites.


Note 1: the dot in front means it won't be visible in the Finder,  
absent further fiddling and trickery.


Note 2: if you're using TeXShop, I think that these sorts of  
instructions go in engine files. If you look at the mac newbie  
installation instructions, you'll see that the bit about source ...  
is put into an engine file. I suspect, though I don't know, that the  
TEXMFHOME and TEXMF lines would be incorporated in a similar way.


This may be an easier route to trying this sort of thing out than  
using .bash_profile. It may be *much* easier if you're supporting  
other people. Again, I don't know.


By the way, Oliver B's problem appears to be resolved. Changes in the  
personal texmf tree are picked up now, without further intervention by  
the user.


Good luck!

[NTG-context] Installing ConTeXt Minimals on a Mac

2008-08-30 Thread Alan Bowen
What follows are some queries that I will be happy to write up for the  
wiki. The aim (hope?) is to develop a set of instructions for  
installing the minimals on a Mac that a Mac user without any real  
knowledge of unix (such as myself) can follow easily. (There are a  
number of people scattered around the world who help me in producing  
various publications; and since they too are not unix savvy, I need  
such instructions if we are to keep our installations functioning and  
up to date.)


Once the ConTeXt minimals are installed in the Applications folder and  
the user can run

\starttext
Hello world!
\stoptext
which is where the wiki (Installationsection 1.2) currently leaves  
off, there still remain a few tasks.


Specifically,

(a) getting this ConTeXt installation to recognize a personal texmf  
directory


(b) running the various binaries (e.g., texmfstart, ctxtools) in / 
Applications/ConTeXtMinimals from Terminal


(c) establishing synchronization between  PDF output and its ConTeXt  
source. Currently, it does not seem to work (with TeXShop at least)

Note, in the latest TeXShop there is
Added support for SyncTeX. SyncTeX is new synchronization technology  
by Jerome Laurens which is included in TeX Live 2008 (but not earlier  
TeX distributions). The technology is built directly into pdfTeX and  
XeTeX. In modern TeX distributions, most typesetting actually calls  
pdfetex (even if using latex to output a dvi file), and thus the  
technology is available for such typesetting. To use the technology,  
add the flag --synctex=1


Any advice on how to do (a), (b), and (c) will be much appreciated.

Alan

cont-en and cont-nl are causing problems.
Miktex cannot generate an (e)fmt file of cont-en, con-nl.

Last time I upgraded, something was wrong with the English hyphenation

This time something else must be the matter; even though hyphenation in

texexec --make nl
generates the same problem. Interestingly, messages are in Dutch.

I would be grateful for any help!

sure what is authoritative. Some make it look like texsync is a good
idea, now it looks like it isn't being updated. Grabbing linuxtex.zip
seems easy, but it also looks like it isn't kept up-to-date. I've been

When the option=test is set, the grid of the chart is drawn.

sh: line 1: pdfetex: command not found

google tells me pdfetex is something like pdftex (what i have installed)
can i use that ?

Try
  kpsewhich -progname=context -format='other text files' texexec.pl
there is this PERL file.

(Besides: If you have a newer teTeX you should already have a
/usr/bin/texexec (which is a shell script that basically calls
  perl `kpsewhich -progname=context -format='other text files' texexec.pl` \
   ${1+$@}
)

 There is no 'texexec':(

Hello Walter,
tetex is perhaps not enough. Did you install te_cont, te_etex and te_pdf?
Especially te_cont!
Cheers, Peter
