Description Takanori MATSUURA 2008-10-02 23:18:08 EDT
This bug has two problem.

1. pxdvi reads not /usr/share/texmf/pxdvi/xdvi.cfg but /usr/share/texmf/xdvi/xdvi.cfg.

If I set the following value in /usr/share/texmf/web2c/texmf.cfg, pxdvi doesn't read cfg file from /usr/share/texmf/pxdvi.

XDVIINPUTS = .;$TEXMF/{xdvi,dvips,pdvips}//
XDVIINPUTS.pxdvi = .;$TEXMF/{pxdvi,xdvi,pdvips,dvips}//

But if I set the following value in /usr/share/texmf/web2c/texmf.cfg, pxdvi reads cfg file from /usr/share/texmf/pxdvi.
XDVIINPUTS = .;$TEXMF/{pxdvi,xdvi,pdvips,dvips}//

The second one solves this bug. But I don't like it because it also affects to original xdvips and may cause error in xdvi.

How to reproduce:
pxdvi -debug open test.dvi
and you can see
kdebug:fopen(/usr/share/texmf/xdvi/xdvi.cfg, r) => 0x2650030

2. xdvi-ptex.map is placed in wrong directory.
This should be placed like
or we should fill the full path of this file like
ptexmap /usr/share/texmf/pxdvi/xdvi-ptex.map
in /usr/share/texmf/pxdvi/xdvi.cfg.

OK, thanks for the report, I can see the problems, and will work on a fix.

Longer term though, maintaining the japanese patch and building a separate binary for japanese support is too much of a departure from upstream, so if you could petition the upstream japanese patch people to work on merging japanese support into upstream xdvik, that would be very much appreciated.

Thank you.

Unfortunately, I'm not a maintainer of the Japanese patch. The developers have a plan to merge the Japanese patch to the upstream but it's not clear when it is.
Comment 3 Jonathan Underwood 2008-10-11 20:44:01 EDT
Ok, have pushed a new build which I hope will fix these issues - please test:

Comment 4 Jonathan Underwood 2008-10-11 21:01:56 EDT
Oops, that build failed. Should be corrected here:
