 chrisb 1998-12-23 20:52:27 UTC ```I was running RedHat 4.x, and just upgraded to 5.2. I can't run Latex against any of my documents. I get the error.. ! LaTeX Error: File `article.cls' not found. Type X to quit or to proceed, or enter new name. (Default extension: cls) If I make a letter document instead I get a similar error except it says 'letter.cls' not found. As far as I can tell, Latex doesn't work at all in this release. I have tried re-installing all the tex packages as well. My document starts off with.... \documentclass[a4paper]{article} \usepackage{i-invoice} ``` Jeff Johnson 1999-01-14 20:49:59 UTC ```This sounds like a configuration problem. Conventions for storing some fonts and TeX support files have changed between the earlier 0.4 and the cureent 0.9 release of teTeX. Please reopen this bug with more complete information if the guess above is incorrect. ``` chrisb 1999-01-15 11:27:59 UTC ```I found I could fix the problem with a BIG environment variable... However, I wouldn't think I should need to put the bog standard tex and latex files in this environment variable. I thought TEX should be able to find the standard stuff automatically. Could it be that after you moving the standard locations of TEX files, tex can no longer find the default locations? Make a small latex file and see if it works.
