You either need to create account (top right corner of the page) or
just edit page and solve a tiny math puzzle to prove you are not a
spammer (and not drunk); creating account is not a prerequisite to
edit the page.

If you happen to have problems with math challenges, write me off-list :) :) :)

 Hi Bryant,
 
 Thanks a lot! I got it working with your suggestion.
 The exact sequence was:
  1. install ConTeXt in DOS cmd
  2. run setuptex.bat in DOS cmd
  3. enter cygwin by running cygwin.bat
  4. in cygwin prompt, run   context.cmd test.tex
 
 Our docbook-pdf/html flow was developed in unix. But I need to port
it 
 to Windows now for my colleagues.

so best add that info to the wiki

Hans

[NTG-context] possible to run minimal in cygwin?

2009-11-02 Thread Chen Shen
Hi all,

I wonder if it possible to run the MSWin version of context-minimal under
Cygwin.
I want to use Makefile and other unix tools to automate my build process.

I tried modifying the context/tex/setuptex script, and manually set the
platform variable to mswin,
but when I ran context.cmd, I saw the following error message. The
texmf-cache path actually exists.
Any hint? Thanks a lot!

==begin cut===
[administra...@cygwin test]$ context.cmd test1

Should I create the cache path /cygdrive/c/usr/docs/context/tex/texmf-cache?
[ye
s|no] [no]

Should I create the cache path /cygdrive/c/usr/docs/context/tex/texmf-cache?

Whether you are a windows person or a unix person: if you want to add
enormous confusion to your life, start using cygwin!

If you have to stay with windows, why not use a more 'normal' make
port like the one in mingw32?

Best wishes,
Taco

Re: [NTG-context] possible to run minimal in cygwin?

2009-11-02 Thread Bryant Eastham
I am doing exactly the same thing as you want. I believe your problem is in 
keeping your worlds (Windows/Cygwin) straight. It appears that you have 
installed minimals “inside” cygwin (depending on whether your /usr directory is 
your cygwin /usr directory).

 

I installed minimals “normally”, as it is a Windows application. I ran the 
context setups from Windows. Then I can build with no problems from within 
cygwin by running the minimals cmd files (although you must specify the 
extension from within cygwin). I did not have to modify any files at all.

 

So far, no problems. Just remember to keep your path information in “Windows” 
format, not cygwin.
