06:03 szabgab book building failed

09:05 pronik szabgab: seems my last message didn't go through -- you need to install xelatex, which is part of texlive
09:47 szabgab pronik: no such package in Ubuntu , hmm
09:47 szabgab wait
09:47 szabgab copy paste was broken in my mouse :)
09:51 szabgab pronik: hmm, so I installed texlive but it did not install xelatex
10:33 lucs szabgab: Did you install all the packages mentioned in the README?
10:49 szabgab lucs: once I did but maybe it changes, I'll check it
10:49 lucs Ok,
10:50 pronik szabgab: if everything else fails, texlive-full is your friend
10:50 lucs Your big big friend :)
10:50 moritz_ (and big)
10:50 pronik yeah :)
10:51 pronik however I must point out that tetex has been mostly a pain because it mostly lacked the packages I needed. texlive has them all.
10:54 szabgab one day I'll implement the whole toolchain in an advanced programming language, if I only had a book about it...
10:56 pronik szabgab: like what for example?
10:56 * lucs thinks szabgab is joking...
10:56 pronik http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/perltex/
10:56 pronik lucs: I'm not ;)
10:56 pronik luaTeX and now perlTeX -- the future looks good ;)
10:57 lucs perltex, wow.
11:08 * szabgab thinks szabgab is not the only lunatic
