# [cjk] CJK version 4.5.1 is out!

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
______
(/usr/share/texmf/tex/latex/CJK/CNS/c31song.fd)
! Misplaced alignment tab character &.
l.19 \quad \verb|&C1-|\verb|5A5A;| &
______                              C1-5A5A;

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/dvips/arphic/gbsnlp,bsmi[01-55].enc and
/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
search")?

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. ;)
