Description Lindsay Todd 2000-10-17 17:36:17 UTC
The thumbpdf file, used to insert thumbnails into pdflatex documents, has
two problems.

First, a perl problem at line 23.  I'm not a perl expert, so there is
probably a better fix than this patch,
but it works for me:

*** /usr/bin/thumbpdf.OLD	Mon Oct  2 15:11:08 2000
--- /usr/bin/thumbpdf	Mon Oct  2 15:11:29 2000
***************
*** 20,26 ****
  # for installation purposes.
  #
  my $file        = "thumbpdf.pl";
! my $program     = uc($file =~ /^(\w+)/, $1);
  my $version     = "1.11";
  my $date        = "2000/01/19";
  my $author      = "Heiko Oberdiek";
--- 20,26 ----
  # for installation purposes.
  #
  my $file        = "thumbpdf.pl";
! my $program     = uc($file);
  my $version     = "1.11";
  my $date        = "2000/01/19";
  my $author      = "Heiko Oberdiek";


Second, pdftex was linked to the wrong version of PNG.  I see that others
have previously reported this problem.

Fixed in tetex-1.0.7-9.
