    texlive/dvi problem in edgy

    i recently upgraded to edgy and migrated from tetex to texlive in the process. i am now having trouble rendering certain math fonts when i try to view dvi output (with xdvi). this only happens in latex files using the revtex class. below are errors generated by xdvi. any ideas on how to fix the problem? thanks in advance.

    ------ xdvi output below -------
    mode ljfour --bdpi 600 --mag 0+420/600 --dpi 420 txsyc
    mktexpk: don't know how to create bitmap font for txsyc.
    kpathsea: Appending font creation commands to missfont.log.
    xdvi: Error: Can't find font txsyc; using cmr10 instead. Expect ugly output.
    kpathsea: Running mktexpk --mfmode ljfour --bdpi 600 --mag 1+0/600 --dpi 600 txsyc

    i am not sure if this will help but if you use
    Code:
    pdflatex foo.tex
    it builds it straight to a pdf file, without having to use dvi.

    Download the missing fonts from here:

    http://www.tug.org/tex-archive/fonts/txfonts/afm/

    and install using the kcontrol font section.

    I have a similar problem. When I convert I tex or ps file to a pdf, the result has a Font Type 3 code. I want it to use Font type 1, which is the best font. But how?

    OK If you don't have kde try this in gnome:

    System---->Preferences----->Font

    Click on the details button

    In the new dialog click on the "Go to Font Folder" Button
    This opens a nautilus session with all your installed fonts listed.
    Now open a new nautilus window and navigate to where the downloaded fonts are located. Drag them into the font folder nautilus session you opened first.

    Make a new subdirectory go into it and then issue:

    wget ftp://www.tug.org/tex-archive/fonts/txfonts/afm/*.afm

    Edit: Sorry afm files don't work try the pfb versions instead:

    wget ftp://www.tug.org/tex-archive/fonts/txfonts/pfb/*.pfb

    i am feeling very inept. i followed the instructions above, but when i try to drag/drop from the files from my directory to the "Fonts" folder, nothing happens. i've tried copy-paste as well. the number of items in the "Fonts" folder stays the same. all of those files have orange locks on them. any suggestions? do you know where the "Fonts" file resides in the directory structure? thanks.

    use 'sudo' to copy..... via command line....

    eg:

    Code:
    sudo /downloaded/folder/thefont /target/folder/Fonts
    or if you want gui then from command line

    Code:
    gksudo nautilus
    and drag-drop from there...
    hope this helps...
