building XeTeX and xdvipdfmx
(This might need to be moved to some better place, for example under XeTeX, but I needed to leave a note on building process before we all forget it.)
SVN sources are available at:
Prerequisits: You need to have the runtime libraries for fontconfig and zlib installed, as well as the devel package for fontconfig
Taco's notes (for linux)
XeTeX's build process needs the tex binaries directory in the path to deduce an installation directory from.
On the contextgarden, that should be
because it assumes the path is TDS compliant (i.e., it ends with '
$ export PATH=/opt/texlive2007/bin/i386-linux:$PATH
Arthur's notes (for xdvipdfmx)
$ export $XETEX=location-of-xetex-TRUNK $ CFLAGS="-I$XETEX/texk -I$XETEX/Work/texk -I$XETEX/libs/freetype2/include -I$XETEX/libs/freetype2" \ LDFLAGS="-L$XETEX/Work/texk/kpathsea/.libs -L$XETEX/Work/libs/freetype2" ./configure
Cross-compiling for PPC on Intel Mac
I see that Mojca has left homework for me to do over the week-end
;-) so here goes:
In order to cross-compile for PPC on a Intel Mac, you need to give the compiler and the linker the following additional switches:
Pretty damn simple, isn't?
So all you have to do is set
LDFLAGS before you run
configure (as well as
CXXFLAGS, if applicable). Of course it may be that some Makefiles don't honor these variables and override them with something of their own, and this is the major inconvience you will have to deal with (this is actually what the Makefile for lua does; here you would have to set something like
XCFLAGS in addition).
Obviously, you can also use a similar instruction to cross-compile the other way round (build for Intel on a PPC host); it's called
-arch i386; and if you give both at the same time, it results with a so-called universal binary (the size of which being approximately the sum of the size of both individual binaries). Arthur 17:20, 30 September 2007 (CEST)
List of fonts in the old minimals
- context/contnav (is it needed? it's in ConTeXt already)
These fonts will be removed once there will be TeX Gyre math available.
superseeded by TeX Gyre
- avantgar (Adobe AvantGarde) -> Adventor
- bookman -> Bonum
- courier -> Cursor
- helvetic -> Heros
- ncntrsbk (Adobe New Century Schoolbook) -> Schola
- palatino -> Pagella
- times -> Termes
- zapfchan -> Chorus
may be removed
sort them first
- ams - check
- latex-fonts -?
- antp -?
Math support needed
- Times: tx (see type-enc) or belleek or symbol math or omega math
- Palatino: px (or Pazo) or euler
- Bookman: kerkis (check)
- Schoolbook: millenial/fourerenc
- Concrete and Euler or Concrete Math
forget-me-not (how to generate map files for XeTeX):
ctxtools --dpx --force --maproot=/usr/local/gwTeX/texmf.pkgs/fonts/map/dvips/tex-gyre
TODO: add support for Chinese, see Hans's manual
- wcm for syrillic
- la/lb/lc rb1000 etc.
- computer concrete (AMS) - see type-enc
- euler (AMS)
- AMS symbols
