It is very annoying to build a Japanese TeX system on UNIX, which needs many Japanese patches. `ptetex3' simplifies this difficult job. It provides the necessary patches and automatically applies them to teTeX.
You can build a latest Japanese TeX system with only the following three files.
tetex-src-3.0.tar.gz (13Mbyte) tetex-texmf-3.0po.tar.gz (88Mbyte) ptetex3-20YYMMDD.tar.gz (5Mbyte)
In addition, we make efforts to concentrate the settings for using Japanese fonts in a single location and simplify their use. In other words, we develop `ptetex3' as the Japanese TeX distribution rather than a mere collection of patches.
System requirements for 'ptetex3' correspond with that for the original teTeX. In addition, you may need GNU make and GNU patch. You may also need ghostscript and Japanese fonts. A free Japanese font 'sazanami-20040629.tar.bz2' is available from the efont project.
Working environment records
We develop on VineLinux 4.2 (similar to RedHat/Fedora). We verified that we can compile even with following environments.
- Fedora Core 4/5 (i386)
- Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES (v. 4 for AMD64/Intel EM64T)
- SUSE 10.1 (x86-64)
- Solaris 8/9 (sparc)
- FreeBSD 4.7-STABLE / 6.1-RELEASE (i386)
We received some reports that they succeeded in compilation with other environments:
- Mac OS X
- SuSE 9.3/10/10.1
- Debian 3.1
- Ubuntu-ja 5.10
- Solaris 10
- Repots by users (Japanese) (inside ptetex Wiki)
The following 3 files are necessary.
- the latest version of ptetex3-20YYMMDD.tar.gz from ptetex3
- tetex-src-3.0.tar.gz from CTAN mirror
- tetex-texmf-3.0po.tar.gz from CTAN mirror
Installation process is following. Put downloaded 3 files in the same directory anywhere you like.
(file extraction) $ gzip -cd ptetex3-20YYMMDD.tar.gz | tar xvf - $ cd ptetex3-20YYMMDD $ less my_option.sample (customize) (compile by user privilege) $ make (installation by root privilege) $ su # make install # exit (PATH setting) $ export PATH=/usr/local/teTeX/bin:$PATH (sh/bash) % setenv PATH /usr/local/teTeX/bin:$PATH (csh/tcsh)
