09:00 lucs moritz_: What pronik produced: http://img267.imageshack.us/img267/2687/booka4.pdf
09:01 moritz_ that's some seriously cool stuff
09:02 moritz_ it just doesn't seem to do the bold inside listings
09:02 lucs Indeed!
09:02 lucs Oh, details ;)
09:03 moritz_ speaking of details
09:03 moritz_ page 22 has quite a few empty lines in the code block
09:03 lucs Yeah, I saw that. Not sure what gives.
09:04 lucs I'm pretty sure it can all be smoothed out.
09:04 * moritz_ too
09:04 moritz_ I'm very impressed
09:04 lucs Yeah, it looks pretty damned nice already.
10:21 moritz_ good news
10:22 moritz_ I have co-main over the Pod::PseudoPod::LaTeX
10:22 moritz_ co-maintainership, I meant
10:23 lucs Interesting.
10:24 lucs The fancy quote fix should probably go in there, not in the Perl6 book code.
10:24 moritz_ +1
10:25 lucs On the other hand, the quote problem doesn't occur anymore with pronik's latest setup :)
10:26 moritz_ I shoul still merge it into upstream, other might find it useful
10:26 moritz_ (unless it collides with pronik's fixes, of course)
10:26 lucs Hmm... I don't about the collision.
10:28 lucs I'm still setting up to build the latest version -- font problems this time.
10:28 lucs I'll try to add rules to the Makefile to help the authors install them if they need to.
10:28 lucs moritz_: Do you happen to know which LaTeX environments most authors use?
10:29 lucs (Perl6 book authors, taht is.)
11:18 moritz_ lucs: many are on Debian, Ubuntu or MacOS
11:18 moritz_ so probably texlive
11:20 lucs Ok, thanks.
11:48 * Util uses TeXLive
17:59 pronik` joined #perl6book
18:05 pronik` moritz_: about missing code parts -- probably an error in perl parser of pygments
18:06 pronik` it might be a good thing to implement a perl6 lexer, since we've got a grammar anyway
18:06 pronik` re: Pod::PseudoPod::LaTeX -- it needs to get way more flexible than it is now. Also we need to get rid of as much hard coded stuff as possible
18:07 lucs pronik`: Hiya.
18:07 pronik lucs: hi
18:07 pronik coming along with compiling? ;)
18:07 lucs Um, did you need to install Inconsolata?
18:07 lucs Problem with that font :(
18:08 pronik yes, but that ones comes from a package
18:08 pronik however, I'm not really satisfied with current fonts, other proposals are very welcome
18:08 pronik I've got a ttf-inconsolata in my ubuntu
18:09 lucs Do you know how I can tell if 9.04 has it?
18:09 pronik http://packages.ubuntu.com/ttf-inconsolata
18:09 pronik it does
18:10 pronik it's a slightly older version, but it's there and should be usable
18:10 lucs Ok, I just need to figure out how to make it visible to LaTeX.
18:11 pronik xelatex should see it instantly, iirc
18:12 lucs Looks like it doesn't :/
18:12 pronik can you pastebin the error you are getting?
18:12 lucs Yep, hang on.
18:14 lucs http://scsys.co.uk:8002/44926
18:15 lucs Oh, I need to at least get it. Please wait.
18:17 lucs Ok, that's better (I think).
18:17 pronik makes me wonder why it tries to compile the font
18:17 pronik oh, nice
18:17 lucs Next problem: ! LaTeX Error: File `ifplatform.sty' not found.
18:17 lucs Do you happen to know where that one comes from?
18:18 pronik I'll do in a couple of seconds ;)
18:18 lucs :)
18:18 pronik texlive-latex-extra
18:18 lucs Ok, hang on...
18:19 lucs Oh darn, it's not in 9.04 ("texlive-latex-extra is already the newest version.")
18:20 lucs By the way, how did you pinpoint it to be in the texlive-latex-extra package?
18:20 pronik first "locate ifplatform.sty"
18:21 pronik and then "dpkg -S /usr/share/texmf-texlive/tex/latex/ifplatform/ifplatform.sty"
18:21 lucs Ah, thanks.
18:21 * lucs takes a note
18:23 pronik maybe you could upgrade your texlive to 2009 with manual automatic installer ;)
18:23 pronik http://www.tug.org/texlive/quickinstall.html
18:24 pronik or upgrade to lucid while you are at it ;)
18:24 lucs The latter makes me a bit nervous, but I'll look at upgrading texlive.
18:26 pronik so, I've gotta go now, see you later, have fun :)
18:26 lucs Ok, have a nice evening!
