Description Jonathan Kamens 2002-11-07 09:16:03 UTC
I had /usr/share/texmf/dvips/config/config.dj5550 installed.  When I run "dvips
-Pdj5550 filename.dvi", it says "dvips: warning: no config file for `dj5550'". 
Strace on the dvips process shows that it is trying to open config.dj5550 in the
current directory but never tries to open it in /usr/share/texmf/dvips/config. 
I do not have the TEXCONFIG environment variable set, but I do have TEXINPUTS
set to ".:~/tex:/usr/lib/texmf/tex/language/hebrew:".  This used to work.  I
have version 1.0.7-58 of the tetex packages installed.

Does this still happen in Phoebe?

Comment 2 Jonathan Kamens 2003-01-14 07:16:13 UTC
Current Raw Hide packages do not exhibit this bug.  I don't know when exactly it
was fixed, but it's gone in Raw Hide.
