thank you for main­tain­ing a very help­ful web pres­ence. it is checked reg­u­larly to see if there are any in­ter­est­ing up­dates and if there are, print­outs of the source are made for per­sonal study.

"GSview is no longer avail­able from CTAN: it should be re­trieved from its home page."

Won­der­ful !

Why not telling me this URL ? Life could be so sim­ple

I'm happy us­ing LyX :D but there are some things that make me feel frus­tated. How can I in­stall a new style of bib­li­og­ra­phy? How can be that ct­ang.org doesn't have a sim­ple gen­eral man­ual that ex­plains how to's?

T-Cof­fee Shad­ing does not work

At least not for me. I keep get­ting the er­ror mes­sage

" ! Im­proper al­pha­betic con­stant. <to be read again> \T@cof­fee0 l.225 \end{texshade} " The code I wrote is: \be­gin{texshade}{9se­qali.aln} \shad­ing­mode[9se­qali.asc]{T-Cof­fee} \fin­ger­print{380} \end{texshade}

Us­ing other shad­ings does seem to work just fine.

Works, but only with a lit­tle trick...

Thanks for this, I just started doc­u­ment­ing my Lua code code with his. How­ever, it did not work from the start. Itried the ex­am­ples, and also they did not work 100%. Then I no­ticed a cer­tain pat­tern, and in fact my doc­u­men­ta­tion works if I in­sert the fol­low­ing at the be­gin­ning of the file:

func­tion class() -- dummy func­tion to get this to work re­turn "noth­ing" end X = class()

Bug of fea­ture?

I wanted to try out your ex­am­ple to see if I could com­pile it (I work with tex­maker for mac). How­ever, it shows er­rors

How to con­tact the au­thor of tx­fonts

How to con­tact the au­thor of tx­fonts

I no­ticed that the pack­age tx­font gen­er­ates a \Lambda if I call $\open­box$. En­closed you find a min­i­mal ex­am­ple:

\doc­u­ment­class[a4­pa­per,10pt]{ar­ti­cle} \usep­a­ck­age[utf8]{in­pu­tenc} \usep­a­ck­age{am­sthm} \usep­a­ck­age{tx­fonts} \be­gin{doc­u­ment} The fol­low­ing com­mands yield
\be­gin{cen­ter} \verb \open­box = \open­box
\verb $\open­box$ = $\open­box$, \end{cen­ter} \end{doc­u­ment}

Un­for­tu­nately I could not find the Email ad­dress of the main­tainer Young Ryu in the doc­u­men­ta­tion. How can I con­tact him to send him this "bu­gre­port"?

How to in­stall supp-pdf.mkii?

Good morn­ing. I am new­bie work­ing with La­tex, but I´ve got a prob­lem. When I try to com­pile my .tex file, Tex­maker ask me about in­stall supp-pdf.mkii. I tried many re­spos­i­to­ries with­out suc­cess. What can I do? Thanks for your help!

How to In­stall to LyX?

In­stal­la­tion pro­ce­dures should be listed un­der http://www.lyx.org/Down­load I've done this on Win­dows 7 by just down­load­ing the in­staller and run­ning it. Of course, I al­ready had a TeX dis­tri­bu­tion in­stalled (TeX Live, avail­able from http://www.tug.org/texlive/).

Al­ter­na­tively, I would sug­gest us­ing a LyX mail­ing list for spe­cific prob­lems. See: http://www.lyx.org/Mail­ingLists

Dawn­load MacTeX

I need a name and a pass­word to down­load the MacTeX for 10.4.11. Where in this maze of site(s) does one en­counter any reg­is­tra­tion, etc. sys­tem?
