Description of problem:
cslatex csplain pdfcslatex pdfcsplain are missing in tetex package, in
fc3test1 they were present. I did did full installation - all packages.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. do full installation of FC3test2
As far as I know pdfcslatex and pdfcsplain have never been a part of
tetex distribution. Package cslatex is located in tetex-latex-2.0.2-19
and csplain is in tetex-2.0.2-19 in FC3t2. Could you please try to
install them manually? I'm sure that cslatex and csplain will occur in
They are just symlinks to pdftex
[root@maxina bin]# ls -l pdfcslatex
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 6 Sep 14 17:01 pdfcslatex -> pdftex
manually installed packages seems to be ok, I pointed out that full
install of FC3 is buggy. Will there be some UTF-8 support for TeX in
I'm not completely decided yet because upstream developers are working
hard on the UTF-8 support but I don't know their exact timing for the
teTeX release with UTF-8 support. Maybe you could try the Dominique
Unruh's package, see bug 71498. For now I prefer to wait for the
upstream release with UTF-8 support.
So what's up with this report? The "missing" files seem to be
available, and UTF-8 is a different issue (see bug 71498).
Is this NOTABUG?
Yes, it's NOTABUG. Just forgot to close it.
thanks for the report
Hello, I am confused by this. It seems the bug is _still_ present in FC3. When I
install (even manually) tetex-latex, /usr/share/texmf/tex/cslatex appears, but
there is still no cslatex executable!
an ordinary latex can be used. You shouldn't need cslatex executable as CSLaTeX
is a set of configuration files for LaTeX. For more details please see:
P.S. Thanks for elinks.
