Cool beans! Thanks for having a go of it. When one can source files,
this could be keen.
I'm afraid I haven't been able to get it to work, though. First, I've
recently upgraded to Panther, and consequently am trying Apple's X11
after using OroborOSX happily for quite some time. I normally use tcsh.
When I start an xterm, my .cshrc is read, but /etc/csh.login is not,
unlike when I start a shell in Terminal. (I suppose this is because
xterm does not start a login shell?) This has the consequence that
/usr/local/teTeX/bin/powerpc-apple-darwin-current is not in the path.
(I seem to recall that fink also adds it to your path when you install
system-tetex, but I hadn't gotten 'round to that yet.)
I don't know whether or how this affects flash mode. At any rate, even
added to my path, when I open a TeX document and hit F2, I simply get
"Error: failed to build custom format." Haven't a clue where to begin
to track down the problem.
The sample documents I tried (la)tex fine from the command line either
from Terminal or xterm, and don't source any other files. (I get the
same error with
This is a test. This is only a test.
I normally use OzTeX as my TeX application. Might having OTEX as my TeX
sig be the problem? (I don't especially care to change right now for
