Subject description: Latex packages
 

Hello,

I've made texplay-2009-beta-sfs4.sfs for one who may need Tex/Latex document production system on his/her puppy Linux (it may be you Smile ). It consists the following packages:

1) document typesetter using texlive-20091107-source and texlive-20091107-texmf (without any document and only include selective fonts)

2) lyx-2.6.4.2 wysiwym as tex GUI

3) spell checker using aspell-0.60.0 and also english and indonesian (bahasa) dictionary

4) image converter using ImageMagick-6.5.8.0, ghostscript-8.70 and ghostscript-fonts-std-8.11

5) prerequisites packages: qt4-4.4.2 and Python-2.6.4

This sfs file size is 173MB and will occupy your storage about 471MB when installed fully in your HD. I'm little ashamed with this huge size, but for functionality i think it can be sacrificed. Sorry.

I've test it under Puppy Linux 4.31, and ps, pdf, html and dvi output can be generated from Help menu file.

However, this texplay sfs is considerably as beta release. So, any reports including bugs found, successful deployments and missing features, and also suggestions are all highly appreciated Very Happy

NOTE
1) Installation (if you new to puppy): quoted from puppy package management
Quote:
Download any SFS file to /mnt/home (the same place as your "pupsave" personal storage file), run the BootManager (in the System menu) to select or deselect what SFS files you want to use, reboot Puppy and its ready to go.


2) dvi file is truly generated. But there is no dvi viewer installed, instead of conversion wrapper script that acts as xdvi viewer as the following:
Code:
#!/bin/sh
# xdvi: dvi viewer
FILENAME=`echo $* | tr ' ' '\n' | grep -ie ".dvi"`
[ "$FILENAME" ] || exit
DIRNAME=`dirname $FILENAME`
if [ -d $DIRNAME ]; then
        cd $DIRNAME
        dvipdf `basename $FILENAME` - | epdfview -
fi



3) Features supported:
* htlatex for generating html from lyx/tex/latex file
* standar lyx document class, package and layout

DOWNLOAD
* texplay-2009-beta-sfs4.sfs
* texplay-2009-beta-sfs4.sfs.md5sum

Thanks, didik!

Saw your notice in Dingo's "LaTeX puppy?" thread and observed the high number of first-time posters wanting this sort of functionality. I'm new to LaTeX and its derivatives, but have downloaded the various manuals from http://www.latex-project.org/. I'll give feedback in the New Year,
Cheers!

Hello,
i found that lyx icon didn't appear on menu because of wrong category (Document). Patch has been applied to updated texplay-2009-beta-sfs4.sfs (dated 122909).

If you have download older sfs, you can apply this attached patch, to fix the missing lyx menu icon.

Run this to patch from console :
# gunzip -c patch-122909.sh.gz | sh

Subject description: Python in package seems incomplete
 

Hello didik,

i used your texpla-2009-beta-sfs4. sfs and found it very usefull. also it is by far the smallest puppy latex package around with 170 MB including Lyx! So really thank you didik for great work!!!

However I think i had a problem yesterday, when i wanted to import some Latex files ("tex" format). I always got a cryptic error reading about incompatible versions of lyx.

I tracked it down then to the python program lyx2lyx. It seems the conversion uses 2 steps, first "tex2lyx" and then it again convertst o the latest lynx file-format version. The Problem is, that the python which is included in the texlive package is not complete, so the scripts throw an error and the gui gives that cryptiv message.

I checked that behavior in a fresh installation, the same error.

I am currently work on the german NOP from forum member deapsea. The dev package of this pupplet includes python 2.5 (and beside that also gfortran which is really usefull).

I tried a simple solution to remove the python 2.6 from your package and use the python from the devx instead. This solved the problem imediatly and I could import tex files to lyx.

I uploaded the package with python removed (its just around 3 MB in the sfs file) to
http://boxen.math.washington.edu/home/emil/Latex/
File is called Latex_Lyx_v09.sfs

Sorry, Download link is a bit slow.

This is didks Latex Lyx package WITHOUT Python, so you have Python (>=2.5 ?) as dependency.

Emil
