### [MiKTeX] 2.4 Source code

I would like to get the source code for MiKTeX 2.4 that has been
released in November 2003. What is currently available via CVS is
already changed (as one would expected by now). Is there a way to do that?

Thanks,
Greg

### [MiKTeX] [Bug] dvips -Ppdf and MetaPost

Hello,

below you´ll find a copy of my post already sent to comp.text.tex. As
pointed out by Walter Schmidt there, there seems to be a bug in dvips.
Unfortunately, I couldn´t find a pointer to where to send bug reports
related to dvips. Does anyone of the MiKTeX team know?

From <news:c4ed86$2i0bin$1 <at> ID-79520.news.uni-berlin.de>:

In the attached MetaPost output the minus sign gets lost when included
in a LaTeX document and processed via 'dvips -Ppdf math' (using dvips(k)
5.90a from a recent MiKTeX). Using pdfLaTeX works. As discussed on
de.comp.text.tex (<news:c46q6j$2ek1hl$1 <at> ID-79520.news.uni-berlin.de>)
using 'dvips -Ppdf -G0 math' works correctly, too.

But reading the UK-TeX-FAQ two questions arose to me. In the answer to
question 87 it is said:
"... The -G1 switch discussed in that question is appropriate for
Knuth’s text fonts, but doesn’t work with text fonts that don’t follow
Knuth’s patterns (such as fonts supplied by Adobe). ..."

Does "Knuth´s text fonts"  mean  "all fonts designed by Knuth (cm,
concrete, ...)"? Or does it mean "text fonts, but not maths fonts"?

Second, the last sentence to the above mentioned question reads:
"The problem has been corrected in dvips v 5.90 (the version
distributed with the TEX-Live 7 CD-ROM and in other TEX distributions
from that date onwards)."

I used dvips(k) 5.90a. The minus sign disappeared. Did I miss something?

The point of doing CVS is that you can get older versions, so just choose
them. Why do you want old binaries?

### Re: [MiKTeX] 2.4 Source code

I managed to get what I wanted. The point was that at least for
yesterday what was current would not compile.

Thanks,
Greg

If you dont have pstricks, you can use the MiKTeX packet manager to install it.

Two ways:
1) Go to Package Manager. In the name field enter pstricks. Select pstricks from the field. If you can select
the minus sign above in the toolbar, you have it. If you can select the plus sign, you need to install it.
2) create any document and add the follwoing code in the preamble (i.e. before \begin{document})

\usepackage{pstricks}

If it compiles fine, you have it. If not, it will ask you if you want to install it.

I suggest that you read through the MiKTeX Manual Manaul to understand how the process works.

### Re: [MiKTeX] portuguese spelling

Are portuguese hyphenation rules switched on? Check the Language tab on
the Miktex Options. If you change something, don't forget to refresh the
File name database on the General tab

Best regards,
Luiz.
