Yes, that was the stance in many cases. I had discussions on that matter,
and people said that if one cannot recreate the pdf with free tools
we cannot include them.

I ran this test file through latex as it is installed on Debian, and
also through latex of upstream TL.

I tested both with both xdvi.

After selecting Mode "Magnifier" (instead of "Text Selection" or
"Ruler") at the right side it works too for me. In Debain stable it
works when selecting Mode "Magnifier" Mnd mode "Text Selection".

Martin, what are your experiences?

Not that I know it, but I assume that is intended that way? Text 
selection mode should not jump around.

I remember how I hated WinWord or Firefox jumping to the email program
when I just wanted to copy something!

Best wishes

Bug#566158: texlive-binaries: hyperlinks do not work in xdvi

Dear all

Yes, in Magnifier Mode the hyperlinks work fine, thanks!
In Text Selection they do not work, even if I choose 
the point carefully.

Regards,

Martin

Bug#566158: texlive-binaries: hyperlinks do not work in xdvi

Yes, the bug could be closed. 
(But perhaps one should mention in the manpage that
hyperlinks work only in Maginfier mode?)

Many Thanks

Re: texlive-latex-base configuration error

Hello,

It seems like the files exist but the script looks for them in the wrong place.

It wants
/usr/share/texmf/tex/latex/latexconfig/dvilualatex.ini


but they are actually in
/usr/share/texmf-texlive/tex/latex/latexconfig/dvilualatex.ini


dvilualatex.ini and lualatex.ini are owned by the package texlive-latex-base


cabuz:/home/cabuz# dpkg -L texlive-latex-base | grep lualatex
/usr/share/texmf-texlive/tex/latex/latexconfig/lualatex.ini
/usr/share/texmf-texlive/tex/latex/latexconfig/lualatexiniconfig.tex
/usr/share/texmf-texlive/tex/latex/latexconfig/dvilualatex.ini
/usr/bin/lualatex
/usr/bin/dvilualatex


So the problem is the path. It's interesting that for the other files, latex.ini for example, the path is correct, only for the lualatex and dvilualatex the path is wrong...

How can I fix this?

Thank you.
