Re: [NTG-context] showcase on mac?

2008-10-07 Thread Charles P. Schaum
On my Mac I use the PDF Browser Plugin by Manfred Schubert
www.schubert-it.com
That makes everything work right on the web for Mac. And the browser has
personal as well as commercial licenses.

On Ubuntu Linux things work fine on the web. I still run (and shall
continue to run) Windows 98 for me and Windows XP for the family
computer. Thus, I don't do much TeXing on Windows.

OTOH, the Debian-ish nature of Ubuntu allows one to DL the
contect-nonfree pkg, but everything is gzipped. So either use evince or
gunzip everything. Evince doesn't allow links at all, giving an unknown
mime type. If you gunzip and use Adobe Reader, some links create file
not found errors but there is slightly more functionality.

I always thought it was a file hierarchy thing.

BTW, Free/PC-BSD is an environment where you can easily patch ports to
let you install kile and the like without depending directly on a
packaged TeX distro, allowing easy use of the tl-installer and the
minimals as well. If KDE 4 is more stable in the next release cycle or
if I remain a glutton for Gnome punishment, I may go that direction
again, lack of Flash (except under Wine) or not.

Re: [NTG-context] showcase on mac?

2008-10-03 Thread Willi Egger
Hi,

This is strange. I use also the 8.1.2 version of Acrobat Reader on a  
MAC with OS 10.4. I have precisely the same problems als Frans  
mentioned. - I now realize that I encountered this already a longer  
time ago, but due to the fact that I download manuals directly from  
the tree, I forgot this.

Kind regards

Willi
