I have to include in my texts Cyrillic/Russian text. So I started to install
the ucs files in my texmf tree since two weeks now, to have unicode support,
but without any success.
I try to retrace the install process, perhaps you see my mistake somewhere :
I search for all folders named "texmf"
-- and this is quite annoying, because already here it is difficult to
say which one to use. I found :
I choose b)
I create a directory ucs/ in /usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf/
I copy the files ucs.sty, utf8x.def, ucsencs.def into the folder
I create a new folder /usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf/ucs/data/, where I
put all files from the data/ of my original ucs installer folder.
I run mktexlsr on /usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf/
Test in BBEdit and TeXShop : I save my tex file with Cyrillic letters in
utf-8 no BOM, in my "Headers" I inserted :
I use the apple script "send to TeXShop".
I push the button "Typeset". But TeXShop is struggling with the letters
and is sending plenty of errors like :
! Missing number, treated as zero.
<to be read again>
I save the .tex file in utf-8, with BOM
I move all files in /usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf/ucs/data/ one level up.
So all files of data/ are now directly in ucs/
Could somebody be so kind and give me a hint ?
