A great new look

All those in­volved in main­tain­ing CTAN over the years de­serve the heart­felt grat­i­tude of the TeX com­mu­nity. The in­ter­face keeps evolv­ing to­ward greater user friend­li­ness and good looks. Well done!

How to in­stall supp-pdf.mkii?

Every­thing worked well and sud­denly:

... ("C:\Pro­gram Files\MiKTeX 2.9\tex\con­text\base\supp-pdf.mkii" [Load­ing MPS to PDF con­verter (ver­sion 2006.09.02).] \scratch­counter=\coun­t227 \scratchdi­men=\di­men233 \scratch­box=\box89 \nofMPseg­ments=\coun­t228 \nofMPar­gu­ments=\coun­t229 \ev­eryMPshow­font=\tok­s52 \MPscratchCnt=\coun­t230 ! No room for a new \di­men . \ch@ck ...\else \er­rmes­sage {No room for a new #3} \fi l.1253 \newdi­men\MPscratchDim % will be as­signed global ? ---------------------------------------- What to do?

Thank you! S.Gurov

Why is the above men­tioned pack­age not avail via tlmgr in­stall pgf-umlcd and only in MiKTeX?

There seems to be a new ruby ver­sion around which pro­duces the er­ror: csv2la­tex:52:in `gsub': in­valid byte se­quence in US-ASCII (Ar­gu­men­tEr­ror) Any idea how to fix that?

thank you for main­tain­ing a very help­ful web pres­ence. it is checked reg­u­larly to see if there are any in­ter­est­ing up­dates and if there are, print­outs of the source are made for per­sonal study.

"GSview is no longer avail­able from CTAN: it should be re­trieved from its home page."

Won­der­ful !

Why not telling me this URL ? Life could be so sim­ple

I'm happy us­ing LyX :D but there are some things that make me feel frus­tated. How can I in­stall a new style of bib­li­og­ra­phy? How can be that ct­ang.org doesn't have a sim­ple gen­eral man­ual that ex­plains how to's?

T-Cof­fee Shad­ing does not work

At least not for me. I keep get­ting the er­ror mes­sage

" ! Im­proper al­pha­betic con­stant. <to be read again> \T@cof­fee0 l.225 \end{texshade} " The code I wrote is: \be­gin{texshade}{9se­qali.aln} \shad­ing­mode[9se­qali.asc]{T-Cof­fee} \fin­ger­print{380} \end{texshade}

Us­ing other shad­ings does seem to work just fine.

Works, but only with a lit­tle trick...

Thanks for this, I just started doc­u­ment­ing my Lua code code with his. How­ever, it did not work from the start. Itried the ex­am­ples, and also they did not work 100%. Then I no­ticed a cer­tain pat­tern, and in fact my doc­u­men­ta­tion works if I in­sert the fol­low­ing at the be­gin­ning of the file:

func­tion class() -- dummy func­tion to get this to work re­turn "noth­ing" end X = class()

Bug of fea­ture?
