I'm using TeXmacs as my primary text editor but I have some "heredated
content" from other editors, most of it is from LyX, so I'm now using
LaTeX as a transport markup between LyX and TeXmacs and trying to modify
manually the not well transported code and in that way I can have the
same original document in LyX (in the visual sense) but with all the new

RedHat 8

I recently started using RedHat 8 (before that I used Madrake 8.2).
TeXmacs crashes when I try to save files. This never happened
while I was using Mandrake. It happens with versions 1.0.0.15 and
1.0.0.22. Is this a problem with RedHat or did I install something
wrong?

Thanks,
Andrej

I suppose you compiled TeXmacs from source and that the default
compiler on your system is g++-3.2. If that is right, you must disable
optimisations or use g++-compat (version 2.95) because the optimiser
of g++-3.2 is buggy.

Otherwise, please give us more information: did you install from
source or from RPM, and where did you get the RPM from? What are the
versions of g++ and guile installed on your system?

Also note that the next (1.0.0.23) release of TeXmacs should include a
number of fixes for compatibility with guile-1.6.

TeXmacs is NOT a LaTeX front-end and is unrelated to emacs.

Ghostscript Output on Cygwin

Unfortunately I don't see images within TeXmacs (running on
cygwin) because the ghostscript tool obviously does not find the
output device: in the status window (xterm) appears:

Running ghostscript [Path/file.ps]
Unknown device: x11

In TeXmacs only a black rectangle or a black rectangle with some
colored dots.

Can anybode help?

I recompiled with --diasble-optimize and it solved the problem.

Thanks a lot

I want to help with localization of TeXmacs, and a little help

Hi all

I just Installed the .21 version of TeXmacs and I see a lot of
improvements on the documentation and its organization. TeXmacs is my
primary text editor and I use it for almost all, and I want to say
thanks helping with localization but I dont know where to start.  I know
that Alvaro, Juan Pablo and Diego are working on spanish translation,
but how can I join with them?

I started the translation of the description of TeXmacs in the
documentation. I will send it to you as soon as I can.

I made my thesis on TeXmacs and now is time to made the presentation.
Its posible to use TeXmacs for the presentation? or may be at this
moment presentation mode is not good for that? In case that TeXmacs can
be used for presentation how can I insert a new Slide? How can I pass
from one slide to another?

Thanks in advance,

Offray

We are very pleased to hear so :^)

Alvaro, Pablo, Diego: can you please answer?

In principle, they translated the old documentation of TeXmacs
into Spanish, but they did not yet upgrade it to the new help system.
I don't know if they have made any progress on that.

By the way, please let us continue this discussion on
the developers mailing list texmacs-dev <at> gnu.org.

> I started the translation of the description of TeXmacs in the

Great. Notice that you can get an account on savannah 
(http://savannah.gnu.org/) and upload translations using CVS.

Thanks Joris for your quick answer. Ok, before moving the discussion
to dev-list and start to using CVS I send the translation as attached
files, because my dial up conection is really bad, so I'm afraid I cant
connect later today, and with this conection all things always take a
lot of time like suscribing my email to dev-list. (I need also some time
to learn how to use CVS).

urgent help with page numbering

Is there any to tell texmacs (with article style) where to start page
numbering?  Or alternately, how can make the table of contents subtract
one from the page number entries?  This is on a deadline, so I'd really
appreciate any help before 1AM CST on Monday Dec. 2.

details:
I'm writing a proposal with a slightly modified article style
(modifications are just to the headers, and indentation for a
subsubsection).  I need to have a title page, executive summary, table of
contents, list of figures, content.  I want the content section to start
with page 1.  Ideally, I'd like the executive summary, toc, and lof to be
numbered i,ii,iii,etc.  But for simplicity, all I need to do is have the
toc (which is its own page) pretend it is page 0 or subtract one from each
entry so that the content is listed as starting on page one.

Thanks for any help

Well, you ask quite a lot at the same time here.
It is possible to modify the way pages are numbered,
but this has not been as easy as it should be yet :^(
I can do this for the next version, but that will probably
be too late for you.

What you can do now is hack the way headers are generated. Take a look
at the "header-article.ts" package (C-x C-f header-article.ts return) and
modify the macros "start-page", "odd-page-text" and "even-page-text"
as you want them to have (see also "Insert -> Header and footer").
You may want to replace <apply|thepage> by <plus|<apply|page number>|xxx>,
where xxx is an offset for the page number.

As to the title page, there is no predefined macro for that yet; just type
