NTeX, dvips font prob

NTeX, dvips font prob

Post by Robin Faichn » Tue, 12 Mar 1996 04:00:00



I recently installed Slackware 3.0 with NTeX, and failed to find
the TeX (as opp. LaTeX) installation doc.  I now find that*
seems to work OK, but dvips can't find any fonts, and can't create
them either.  I tried setting TEXFONTS to /usr/lib/texmf/fonts//
(from memory, but I'm quite sure of it) without any benefit.

This is the script (abbrev.):

Any ideas?

1. NTeX under Linux---dvips segfaults, & ghostview not using right fonts

Hi:

I just installed NTeX, from the Slackware Aug. 96 CDROM distribution
of Linux.

Latex seems to work fine.
dvips segfaults immediately. Without any options or input
it is supposed to print the list of command line options,
it segfaults in this case too.

Also, xdvi does not seem to handle overlays properly, and
ghostview does not seem to display the right fonts--the fonts
displayed are much smaller than should actually be.

Any help/insights would be very much appreciated.

Thanks,
Sriram
