I bupmed into your post and I would be gratfull if you could help me! I also have redhat 9 and I am trying to view pdf and ps files in greek and it seems that I cannot do it! Can you plz help me out here because I have to write a papaer in greek and I am running out of time
I guess you haven't installed Greek at all.
Have you checked the /etc/XF86Config file for the section "InputDevice" to contain the lines:
Option "XkbLayout" "us,el"
Option "XkbOptions" "grp:alt_shift_toggle"
I have installed greek and when it comes to the input device of the file XF86Config the stuff you mentioned are there! So probably there something else I'm doing wrong. I downloaded a pdf file writen in greek from a friend of mine and I was able to read it using acroread. But when it comes to the greek pdf files I generate from lyx the result is ununderstandable symbols! I am convinced that ther is something going on with fonts....
Any more suggestions? I really appreciate your help
I have downloaded a pdf file (written by a friend of mine in greek). I opend it in ghostscript and in acroread and I was able to see it! The problem is when I am writing something in greek in lix and I export in pdf or ps formats. I don't know if this helps...
The easiest way is to make a search for *.ttf files in your linux box. You should probably have a folder named /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/TTF (or sth like that). You could try to copy all the ttf files from windows to that folder. Afterwards, type 'fc-cache' from a console which will make a reindexing of the system's font folders and find the new fonts.
I did what you said (copied from windows all ttf files to the dir and run fc-cache but still I get the same stuff. No progresshas been made. ghostscript and acroread still show the same.
Any more suggestions?
PS I really think that it has something to do with ghostscript fonts and not system fonts
I d/l lyx too and saw the problem myself....When i switch to greek, it types nothing. The cursor just stays there..
My guess is it's probably something related to the specific application, so i guess you should look it the lyx's website in case there's any more info...
I'll check it out a bit later and if i find anything i'll let you know..
