Description Michal Jaegermann 2005-07-04 19:37:34 UTC
Description of problem:

In /usr/share/texmf/texdoctk/texdocrc.defaults one can find programs
like 'ghostview', 'acroread' and 'netscape' - which is not really what
should be expected by default.  Also a default print command should
be rather 'lpr' and not 'lpr -Plp'.

Another problem is that "Settings" dialog in texdoctk is not resizeable,
does not fit on 1024x768 screen and metacity does not allow then reaching
buttons at the bottom and this is the only way to save modified settings
(outside of a possibility of using an editor to edit if you know what).

There is also 'texdoctk' in tetex-2.0.2-21.3 as distrituted with FC3 but
"v.0.5.2 beta 4" seems to have a number of assorted problems on its own.
In particular it does not recognize its own document selections.  Replacing
that file with "v.0.6.0" taken from tetex-3.0 improves the situation

Comment 3 Michal Jaegermann 2005-07-21 14:32:20 UTC
Defaults for texdoctk look now ok with this catch that in FC4, unfortunately,
there is no gv.  A default PS viewer is evince.  I also wonder if htmlview
would not be safer instead of an explicit firefox.

Comment 4 Jindrich Novy 2005-07-21 14:53:59 UTC
Good catch with evince, I'll change the default viewer of PS/PDF to evince then.
The htmlview is planned to be obsoleted soon so the only textual alternative
might be links here or firefox with the GUI.

Comment 5 Michal Jaegermann 2005-07-21 17:37:44 UTC
IIRC htmlview is "obsolete" for the last five years or so. :-)  Something
of that sort is clearly needed anyway.  But if you want to hardwire firefox
then I do not think that this is a big deal.  These are supposed to be
some sane defaults which can be individually adjusted in any case.
