I don't know if FFII has managed to restore the FTP yet, but I have the
latest snapshot (4.5.1, from 17-Jun-2002) on my webhost:
http://users.skynet.be/so000618/cjk-current.tar.gz (it's the original
tarball; I didn't touch it :D).
Also, thumbs up for A. Fok for his latest CJK Debian package. The
Arphic test and the py_test work excellent (using ming and mingr)!
But most of my problems still are occurring since my last e-mail to the
CJK mailing list (back then I was running a Mandrake 8.1). I am
currently running a Debian Woody, with only a few programs that are
"pinned", using packages from Debian Sid.
rubytest.tex compiles fine, and xdvi gives no errors. But I only see
one row of ruby text; no hanzi, and nothing from the \Large part.
rubytest.log contained a lot of "Missing character: There is no
^^98/^^ac/^^bd/... in font cmr12/7/17!"
"latex CEF_test.tex" returns
! Misplaced alignment tab character &.
l.19 \quad \verb|&C1-|\verb|5A5A;| &
And xdvi can't find c1so1222, c2so1222,... up to c7so1222, although I
have installed all the CNS planes.
The Chinese (GB2312 and Big5) example .tex files use gbsnlp and bsmi;
these seem the real Arphic files because they are located in
/usr/share/texmf/fonts/tfm/arphic/*. But I get the error "kpathsea:
Running mktexmf gbsnlp06\n ! I can't find file `gbsnlp06'." Why can't
mktexmf find the Arphic fonts? Do I have to manually convert them?
JIS.tex has problems: it can't find the jsso1210 font, although I have
the hbf48 fonts installed somewhere. :-/
I know it's one of the ugliest fonts out there, but I don't know how to
use the ttf-kochi-gothic/mincho-naga10 fonts.
I found the jsso12 fonts in /usr/share/texmf/fonts/tfm/jisx0208/jsso12/
directory, and "latex test.ltx" compiled without problems. But when I
ran "xdvi test[.dvi]" mktexpk couldn't find any metafont information
regarding jsso1202 to make jsso1202.600pk. How do I create one, and
where do I place it?
Also, how do I use the kochi fonts on Debian? Under which cryptic name
is it known, so I can change JIS/c40song.fd?
SJIS.tex can't find the dmjhira12 font either. I can't find it on
Linux, but MikTeX on Windows has all the dmj fonts in the wadalab
directory (/win-c/texmf/fonts/type1/wadalab/dmj/). What to do? How
come the Debian package of the wadalab fonts didn't put it in the texmf
folder? Or should I add it manually?
UTF8.tex can't find cyberb00. Are these the cyberbit fonts? Where can
I get these fonts (can't find them with "dselect" or "apt-cache
Last but not least, is there a nice big book about CJK and the different
problems with fonts? A bit like the LaTeX [Graphics] Companion? Or
should I go for Ken Lunde's CJKV? Having a printed book makes looking
things up so much easier. ^_^
Wow, I didn't expect my mail to be so long... Sorry for all the trouble
I may cause you, but this is really puzzling me. I know how to do
mathematics, chemistry, music scores, go games and pstricks in (La)TeX,
but CJK fonts is certainly the most difficult topic I have ever
encountered. :D "Chapeau" for all of you who can deal with this. ;)
Still a newbie at CJK fonts o_O;;
