Description Hin-Tak Leung 2011-08-03 23:41:05 UTC
Description of problem:
texlive support for inconsolata font is missing. Consider that inconsolata font is used in quite a few places by default (gnome 3?).

I noticed this problem because I was trying to build R from SVN, and affected by R's switch to inconsolata for the default font for generating manuals.

    use inconsolata for PDF package manuals
    git-svn-id: https://svn.r-project.org/R/trunk@56302 00db46b3-68df-0310-9c12-caf00c1e9a41

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try building R from svn
Actual results:

LaTeX errors when creating PDF version.
This typically indicates Rd problems.
LaTeX errors found:
! LaTeX Error: File `inconsolata.sty' not found.

Expected results:
Building of manuals to completion.

Additional info:

It may be appropriate to re-assign this under the levien-inconsolata-font package (and for that to ship texlive inconsolata.sty support files). Also recommended to CC on the package maintainer of R for fedora.

Comment 1 Hin-Tak Leung 2011-08-03 23:44:32 UTC
BTW, it appears that the older behavior (uses courier new for default monospace font for R documentation) may be selected either at build time or at run time
by setting R_RD4PDF="times,hyper" instead of the new default 'times,inconsolata,hyper'. Nonetheless, since inconsolata is used for gnome gui(?), texlive support for it probably should be included.

Comment 2 Hin-Tak Leung 2011-11-05 00:26:20 UTC
Okay, so here is my hand-brewed inconsolata installation (+ texhash + updmap-sys --enable Map=fi4.map). FYI. pdflatex seems to use the type1 version and xetex the opentype version, so probably orthogonal to the system-wide ttf version:
