Aug 2008 The files in this directory help to build Tom Rockiki's dvips for TeX-GPC. Since KPSE does not blend with TeX-GPC, and CTAN only offers KPSE based versions of DVIPS, I downloaded the latest release from Stanford: ftp ftp://ftp.cs.stanford.edu/pub/dvips/dvips576.tar.gz It unpacks in a directory dvips576. Edit Makefile from this directory to reflect the default resolution of your printer, the location of your binary and "man" directory. Replace Makefile and MakeTeXPK in dvips576/dvips by the files from this directory. See xdvi/README for hints on the man directory. Create a master directory DVIPSconf if you haven't done so already, goto dvips576/dvips, run mk_TeX_dir, mk_MF_dir, and make install. Edit DVIPSconf/config.ps to reflect paper size and resolution of your printer. To make dvips generate missing .pk fonts automatically, the resolutions in config.ps and in the mf mode "localfont" must agree. Tip: With an A4 papersize you might want to adjust the origin to 1in-3mm,1in+8.8m. This line in config.ps does that: O -3mm,8.8mm This will give you equal left and right margins with Plain TeX's predefined \hsize of 6.5in, and therefore the pagenumbers will line up nicely on two sided output. Enjoy, Wolfgang Bug: dvips does not compile on Mac OS X 10.7 because the getline() is defined in stdio.h. Workaround: change the spelling of getline to ngetline in each occurence in file afm2tfm.c.
