I've installed latex2html in our Sun SPARCstation 20 running Solaris
without problem. Now, I'm trying to install it in my home pc running
Slackware Linux 96.1. Since Linux has Ghostscript and perl, I've
only NETPBM and latex2html sources.
install-test says all is ok.
But ... When I try to run latex2html over a*document with formulas
I get a lot of errors. It seems dvips cannot find fonts and tfm files.
Here is the log:
Generating postscript images using dvips ...
dvips -M -S 1 -i -o 1630_image images.dvi
This is dvipsk 5.58f Copyright 1986, 1994 Radical Eye Software
' Tex output 1997.02.28:0847' -> 1630_image
kpathsea: Appending font creation commands to missfont.log.
dvips: Font cmbx10 not found, characters will be left blank.
dvips: Can't open font metric file cmbx10.tfm
dvips: I will use cmr10.tfm instead, so expect bad output.
dvips: ! I can't find cmr10.tfm; please, reinstall me with proper paths
Error: No such file or directory
/usr/local/latex2html/pstogif -depth 1 -scale 1.6 -out img4.gif
Cannot find file 1630_image004.ps
But these fonts are generated and they are in the
/var/texmf/texfonts/pk/localfont directory. The stranger thing is
I may compile images.tex (generated by latex2html) using the command
I've tried for two hours to make dvips to locate the fonts but no
Could someone help me????
I've heard NTeX implemetation that comes with Linux is not a good one.
Is this a problem of NteX? dvips?
Thank you very much, Humberto.
