Description Rex Dieter 2001-06-25 15:14:57 EDT
Description of Problem:
Using texconfig to configure tetex fails when tetex-xdvi is not installed.

I use texconfig to set default paper size for example:
> texconfig dvips paper letter

How Reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce: (Start with tetex-xdvi installed)
1. texconfig dvips paper letter (works)
2. rpm -e tetex-xdvi
3. texconfig dvips paper letter (Failure/error)

Actual Results:
texconfig error: "Could not find app-default file for xdvi"

Expected Results:
It should work.
Comment 1 Rex Dieter 2001-06-25 15:37:41 EDT
The easiest fix, IMO, would be to include the XDvi app-defaults file in the
tetex-fonts rpm (tetex-xdvi depends upon tetex-fonts already anyway).

Otherwise, patch texconfig to not require the presence of XDvi (at least when
configuring non-XDvi tetex options).  I spent about 15 minutes trying to do
this, but didn't find an easy/clean way to do it.

For the record, I didn't want to bother installing tetex-xdvi because we're
using KDE's kdvi exclusively anyway.
