fourier.sty installation on MiKTeX

Here are the revised step for installing fourier on MiKTeX:

1. Unzip the archive and put everything into its appropriate subdirectory of
C:\localtexmf
2. If it doesn't already exist, create the file
C:\localtexmf\web2c\updmap.cfg and insert the lines

# fourier
Map fourier.map                      #localtexmf\dvips\fourier\fourier.map
Map fourier-utopia-expert.map
#localtexmf\dvips\fourier\fourier-utopia-expert.map

3. Update the fndb.
4. Execute the command 'updmap --mkmaps'

Still can't view dvi files, though. What's the reason?

Any improvements?

TeX Live or MikTeX for computer lab installation?
We have a computer lab for students to use which is administered by our university computer people. They're very happy to put software on the lab servers when we request it. Recently there has been more interest among the students about using LaTeX, but the three of us in the department who use it all use Macs. I have no problems advising the computer folk on how to get MacTeX up and running in the lab, but I'm not so clear on the PC side of things. So the question I have is, for a PC based distribution, which would be a better choice for a server based lab situation, MikTeX or TeX Live? Criteria would be, ease of installation, ease of updating, suitability to a server situation etc. I know that MikTeX automatically loads uninstalled packages. How would this work on a server situation? Are there things that I would need to know to tell the installers how to configure either distribution so that it would work seamlessly under a lab situation? Thanks a lot.

fourier.sty and bm.sty
Hi, I just found out that bm.sty doesn't work with fourier.sty. If I call bm before fourier, I ended up with bold italic symbols in CM font. If I call bm after fourier, I ended up with poorman's bold math symbols. However, I'm able to declare a new math fonts \mathbfit, as suggested by the author, by \DeclareMathAlphabet{\mathbfit}{T1}{fut\mathfamilyextension}{bx}{it} and get the real bold italic math symbols in Utopia font, as I want. Did I do anything wrong or fourier and bm are not compatible. Thanks, Xiaotian Xiaotian Sun schrieb: > > If I > call bm after fourier, I ended up with poorman's bold math symbols. So far, the Forier font family has not bold math fonts, so "poor man's bold" is the best you can obtain. > However, I'm able to declare a new math fonts \mathbfit, as suggested by > the author, by > \DeclareMathAlphabet{\mathbfit}{T1}{fut\mathfamilyextension}{bx}{it} This is a text font, whose spacing is not appropriate for use in math, Furthermore, it has a different character set than the italic font which is normally used for the mathematical letters; in particular, it has no Greek alphabet. Thus, bm cannot mak use of it. (Besides, you would have to declare it in a different way to make bm.sty recognize itm, but that's pointless, anyway.)

incalc.sty, kvsetkeys.sty and packages for use with (e)TeX
Hello Mr Oberdiek, 1) I noticed that you leave the command ...@AtEnd defined after the end of the input. Your packages generally starts with: \TMP@EnsureCode... \edef\...@AtEnd{\...@AtEnd \noexpand \endinput } May be you could add \let\noexpand\...@AtEnd =\relax (or \noexpand\@undefined). 2) I don't know it this is wanted or even possible to know if a package is loaded by \RequirePackage or via \input or \InputIfFileExits (may be the file stack contain some information) but if you: \input intcalc.sty\relax in a LaTeX document you get either: LaTeX Warning: You have requested package ', but the package provides intcalc'. Or: ! LaTeX Error: Can be used only in preamble. The fact that each line conciensciously end with % makes me think that that file could be loaded anywhere... But i admit this 2) point is also a question of design. Best regards.

Problem: Latex cannot find a TTF font installed by the Miktex TTF font installer
Short version: I have the Sabon font as TTF and would like to use it from Miktex. I have tried using various methods, including the Miktex font installer, but failed. I think the Sabon font is installed (the self-test seems to indicate that) but still pdftex complains that the font shape is undefined. How should I proceed, please? Long version: I'll redo all the steps (2006-04-11) and log them here. This is on Windows XP Professional, Version 2002, Service pack 2. First let's ensure that the system is up to date. I run the Miktex update wizard 2.4.1704. Update from Internet. Select a mirror, www.tex.cam.ac.uk. No updates available (no surprise, I had already done that a couple of days ago). Cancel. I run mtfi-0.6.0-setup.exe. Select components to install: Miktex TTF font installer (required) and Start menu shortcuts. Where? Default place. Install completed. Close. From the start button I run MTFI/MTFI. I select the four font files c:\temp\sabon\sabor___.ttf c:\temp\sabon\sabob___.ttf c:\temp\sabon\saboi___.ttf c:\temp\sabon\sabobi__.ttf into their appropriate entry boxes. Next it asks for the Miktex base and local directories: it guesses them correctly as c:\apps\texmf and c:\data\localtexmf. I proceed. Name of the font: it suggests "sabor___" but has a red cross next to it. So I say "sab". Select a writable output directory. c:\temp\sabon-test\, which I just created. Next: conclusion of your selections. I cut and paste here: Conclusion ...

setting TeX text variable depending on keyval-generated param? (low-level TeX question)
I am using keyval to set a "scaled" parameter and am having trouble getting the right behavior, which is: If I \usepackage{package} with no [scaled] option, I want to set a variable to a compile-time-specified default, say "s*[a.b]". If I \usepackage[scaled]{package}, same thing. And if I \usepackage[scaled=x.y], I want to set the variable to "s*[x.y]". (This is for font scaling, and I've used as my model the Helvetica scaled parameter.) The variable name (for the purposes of this conversation) is pnm@scaled. What I have that's not working correctly is: \expandafter\ifx\csname pmn@scaled\endcsname\relax \let\pmn@scaled\@empty \else \edef\pmn@scaled{s*[1.2]}% \fi I think what this says is "if pnm@scaled is not defined (case 1), leave it empty, otherwise set it to "s[1.2]". But the else clause is not working correctly, and I don't know how to differentiate between "defined by keyval but with no value" and "defined by keyval but with a value". Also I'm pretty sure I don't really know the difference between \let and \edef. Any help gratefully appreciated. Thanks.

Font installation on MiKTeX
I have problems installing Type1 fonts on a MiKTeX system. I recently changed my TeX system from an old EMTeX implementation to MiKTeX. There everything ran smoothly, now the fonts won't work, although I followed installation guidelines. So I thought the error might be that the file format might have changed during the years and I tried to make TeX font files from scratch (.afm, .pfb) and followed the process described in the Font Installation Guide. What I did in both cases: rename .afm, .pfb \latinfamily{...} pltotf, vptovf put files in correct directories make .map file The error message remains the same as with my old font file, it is: LaTeX Font Warning: Font shape OT1/ppa/m/n' undefined (Font) using OT1/cmr/m/n' instead on input line 21.

Problem with installing MikTeX

How to install a package (for MiKTex)?
I think this ought to be simple, but I've been searching the documentation and the Web for over an hour, and I can't find the answer. Tomorrow my end user's client will send her a style file, which I gather is one type of package. What do we do with it? I have found many examples of using the usepackage command to refer to particular packages in particular environments. I cannot find a reference that explains what the usepackage parameters mean, which might let me deduce where to put a package so that the command can find them. (In fact I cannot find a comprehensive TEX or LaTeX command reference at all, which seems bizarre. Any pointers?) I have studied the MiKTeX Package Manager, but it appears to be a closed system: it displays a list of packages which it can get from some unspecified place on the Web and install in some unspecified place on my disk. That's no help if the package I need is not in its list. I have some of the pieces of this puzzle, but others are missing, and the pieces I have to do not suggest a solution. Where can I find the information I need?

When I try to generate the format files at the command line with "initexmf --dump" I get "inimf" --ini --interaction=nonstopmode --halt-on-error "plain"; input modes; dump This is METAFONT, Version 2.71828 (MiKTeX 2.4) (INIMF) (C:\texmf\metafont\base\plain.mf Preloading the plain base, version 2.71: preliminaries, basic constants and mathematical macros, macros for converting from device-independent units to pixels, macros and tables for various modes of operation, macros for drawing and filling, macros for proof labels and rules, macros for character and font administration, and a few last-minute items.)

Installing MiKTeX in network
Hello I just formatted the server and thought this is a good opportunity to put TeX in a network so I don't have to run the long installation on every client PC. I don't have the MiKTeX CD-R, but I'm sure it's possible to do this without the CD. The problem is, all the pages I found on the Internet assume the existence of the config\config.bat and config\config.pl files, which I don't have. I took the following steps: 1) I downloaded the small-miktex-2.4.1705.exe installer from www.miktex.org and installed it in D:\texmf on the server machine, did not create a local tree. 2) On the client, I mapped \\Server\D\texmf to drive T: 3) I added T: to the environment path But when I try to pdfTex a document (I run T:\...\pdflatex.exe test.tex from the dir with the source file), it first asks for the name of the input document (which it shouldn't) and when I enter the complete filename it want to know where to find article.cls. Can anyone help me? Before, I installed the MikTeX distribution over the network and it ran fine from the computer I installed it from without extra configuration. Both computer run Windows XP.

Hi, I posted this query in Miktex forum two weeks ago but there's no reply. Hope someone can help solving my problem. Original message: ============================================================= I am using Miktex 2.3 basic installation package on winxp. My goal is to install metapost. Downloaded metapost through miktex->option->packages->format->context->metapost. 2 *.cab are installed. When I tried running "mpost"/"mp" from command prompt, I got the following error message: Miktex-core-2.dll was not found' In my system there's only miktex-core-1.dll. Could sby teach me how I could fix the problem? ============================================================= 1000 thanks.

installing txfonts in miktex
I have installed the appropriate files according to the instructions given in the txfontsdoc.tex. However, when I try to run the test code I always get the same error: Making PK font: C:\Program_Files\miktex\miktex\bin\makepk.exe --verbose rtxr 600 600 magstep(0.0) ljfour name: rtxr, dpi=600, bdpi=600, mag=magstep(0.0), mode=ljfour makemf --verbose rtxr cannot find rtxr source file. ttf2pk -q -n rtxr 600 hbf2gf -q -p rtxr 600 makepk: don't know how to make rtxr.pk! Loading 'cmr10' instead. i created a version of updmap.cfg in \localtexmf\dvips\config # txr Map txr.map #localtexmf\dvips\config\txr.map then I updated the filelist using Miktek Options refresh, but still the txfonts does not work. This is driving me nuts. Can anyone suggest what I can do to solve this problem. I need to have times new roman font for my dissertation. What is the rtxr source file?

[cut] Always check the MiKTeX package manager first - txfonts is already a MiKTeX package. (Using the auto-installer you could actually just run a latex file containing "\usepackage{txfonts}" to install the package.) > i created a version of updmap.cfg in \localtexmf\dvips\config > > # txr > Map txr.map #localtexmf\dvips\config\txr.map > > then I updated the filelist...

framed.sty + chngpage.sty + float.sty
dear latex wizards---I am getting some interactions between packages framed, cngpage, and float. I would like to have floats that are style "float", which have a colored background, and which extend into the marginparwidth. alas, I can get floats with colored background, or floats which extend into the marginparwidth, but not both. this is easy to show with the latex segment below. (if there is a more advanced package out there that has more features than float.sty that cover this, please let me know and ignore this post.) any help would be appreciated. sincerely, /ivo welch \documentclass[12pt]{book} \setlength{\textwidth}{4in} % make it more obvious \usepackage{color} \usepackage{float} \usepackage{chngpage} \usepackage{framed}\definecolor{shadecolor}{gray}{0.75} \makeatletter % we need to redefine float@end to extend the table-rules. thanks to morten hogholm. \renewcommand\float@end{\@endfloatbox \ifdim\linewidth<\columnwidth \global\setbox\@currbox\float@makebox\columnwidth \else \global\setbox\@currbox\float@makebox\linewidth \fi \let\@endfloatbox\relax\end@float} \makeatother \floatstyle{ruled} \restylefloat{table} \newif\ifuseshaded \useshadedtrue % set this to false to show that it works w/o framed \begin{document} \marginpar{\footnotesize this is a marginal note to text.} some text. some text. some text. some text. some text. some text. some text. \begin{table}[H] \begin{adjustwidth}{}{-\marginparwidth} \ifusesha...

problem installing tex on debian
Hi, all, I'm having problems installing tex on debian 5.0 (lenny). I do this: apt-get install texlive-base and I get this: /usr/bin/fmtutil: line 336: /usr/local/share/texmf/texconfig/tcfmgr: No such file or directory fmtutil: config file fmtutil.cnf' not found. The file /usr/local/share/texmf contains no subdirectory texconfig. Googling shows that other people are encountering something like this, e.g., http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=503267 , but I haven't been able to find a fix. Thanks in advance for any help that anyone can provide! -Ben Ben Crowell schrieb: > I'm having problems installing tex on debian 5.0 (lenny). > > I do this: > > apt-get install texlive-base > > and I get this: > > /usr/bin/fmtutil: line 336: /usr/local/share/texmf/texconfig/tcfmgr: No > such file or directory > fmtutil: config file `fmtutil.cnf' not found. > > The file /usr/local/share/texmf contains no subdirectory texconfig. Seems like a problem with some non-Debian packages or local install of TeX software. Debian doesn't install anything in /usr/local/...
