Your program is definitely great.
I saw that a number of people have printing problems under LINUX, and I just
joined the club ... I installed Thot yesterday under slakware linux 2.0.0,
on a Pentium PC.
I'm completely new to Thot and have printing problems more or less similar
to those already reported by other people.
One of the printing errors occurs directly using the
Let's assume we are in directory /Thot/LINUX/bin.
I then call the Thot-print statement by typing ./print to avoid calling
Furthermore suppose two documents were made and saved:
testlett.PIV (of type letter)
testmath.PIV (of type math)
I mention these types because on my machine "letter" gives problems, and "math"
does not. Now here's a print statement which DOES work:
It produces a ps-file called testout.ps:
./print testmath.PIV -v Main_view -ps testout.ps
Now the statement
./print testmath.PIV -v Main_View -ps testout.ps
(capital letter View) produces the following shell-error-statement:
/bin/mv: testmath.ps: No such file or directory
In other words, you have to get the viewname right, or strange things happen.
That's for the math-scheme. Now the letter-scheme:
It just always gives that error:From the dialog-window in the graphical version
we guess that we have to use 'Vue Unique' instead of 'Main_view', but it's
./print testlett.PIV -v 'Vue Unique' -ps testout.ps
./print testlett.PIV -v 'Vue_Unique' -ps testout.ps
both lead to:
/bin/mv: testlett.ps: No such file or directory
There is something with the Thot/MathP.P file, namely that it has an entry
which the other standard structures don't have.
The use of the 'Vue Unique' name for other structures seems to be mixed
with 'Vue_Unique', so I thought of replacing all occurences in the schema-
directory of 'Vue Unique' by 'Vue_Unique' but that didn't work.
It's difficult for me to see if these remarks have any relevance to the
problem, but I thought maybe they could be useful to somebody who understands.
Apart from this, I get an additional error if the print routine is called
from the windows interface: In that case a window pops up telling me that it
Cannot create testlett.ps
and the thot-calling shell reports that
/bin/mv: /.ps: No such file or directory
sh: -removedir: command not found
Hope to have been useful in some way .. In particular for myself: I just want
to print a letter really...
