Does teTex require the obsolete unicode package?
|Reported by:||Arnold the Frog||Owned by:||Randy McMurchy|
The cm-super tarball is only partially copied to the texmf installation directories. I recently found I needed something else from it: namely file cm-super/type1ec.sty , which is used by the LaTeX back-end for asciidoc.
Unless someone has a better idea, I recommend putting it in /usr/share/texmf-local/cm-super/type1ec.sty
The same back-end also needs ucs.sty: I'm currently trying to track down the best source (the original author has dropped it for want of time) . A version can be found at www.botik.ru/~znamensk/CTAN/macros/latex/contrib/supported/unicode/ucs.sty : I suppose somewhere like /usr/share/texmf-local/tex/ucs/ucs.sty will do for it.
Just in case anyone missed it, after installing new files "by hand" you should call mktexlsr /usr/share/texmf-<whatever> to update the ls-R catalogue file. mktexlsr with no arguments updates all the catalogues it knows about, which is easy but can take a while, as there's a lot in 'texmf'.
