Hi friends!

I'm getting mad trying to find out why my document viewer is not able to open dvi files.

The thing is pretty weird because evince didn't show any problem opening dvi files until few days ago... and suddenly evince doesn't render dvi documents any more. I tried to open a dvi file, it failed and since then I cannot open any.

The problem is not due to the dvi files because I can open the files easily with xgdvi for instance, and evince is able to open pdf, ps and eps files...

I have installed tetex, texlive and ghostscript in my Ubuntu 10.04.1 with gnome.

Any help is more than welcome because the problem is pretty annoying. I'm used to create my documents with latex and evince was the perfect tool to visualize the intermediate dvi files.

If I run evince in a terminal I get this:

sudo evince test.dvi

** (evince:5708): WARNING **: Failed to connect to the session bus: /bin/dbus-launch terminated abnormally without any error message

** (evince:5708): WARNING **: Error connection to DBus: /bin/dbus-launch terminated abnormally without any error message


** (evince:5708): WARNING **: Error connecting to D-Bus: /bin/dbus-launch terminated abnormally without any error message

page: Error: could not load font `cmbxti10'

** (evince:5708): WARNING **: Setting attribute metadata::evince::sidebar_visibility not supported

otherwise I get a windows error like this:

Unable to open the document
DVI document has incorrect format

Thanks a lot in advance for any help you can provide me!

Cheers.
