Description of problem:
The command "dvipdfmx" does not work since it is a symbolic link to "xdvipdfmx" which does not exist in my file system.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Simply install the texlive-dvipdfmx package
Steps to Reproduce:
1. sudo dnf install texlive-dvipdfmx
3. ls dvipdfmx
The third step produces the following output:
lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root root 9 Nov 26 19:22 dvipdfmx -> xdvipdfmx
where the symbolic link is broken.
As a consequence, the "dvipdfmx" command as well as the "dvipdfm", "ebb", "extracbb" commands) do not work.
"xdvipdfmx" must exist in the file system
I have tried to remove the above broken links and to reinstall the package:
1. cd /usr/bin
2. sudo rm dvipdfm dvipdfmx ebb extractbb
3. sudo dnf reinstall texlive-dvipdfmx
without any success: the third step recreates the above broken links.
To solve this issue, you need to install:
Thanks to Jon Ingason (see discussion:
I am leaving this bug open since, in my opinion, package texlive-dvipdfmx should have as dependency the package texlive-xetex.
