Well, I started to use the package and I one problem:
I could not use it with pdflatex to generate a PDF file. To generate a
PDF file, I had to use a three-step recipe, which was:
$ latex text; dvips -Pcm-super text; ps2pdf text.ps
Unfortunately, this means that I can not generate a PDF file that uses
hyperlinks (well, at least I don't know how it would be possible). I
also tried using dvipdfm, but if I remember correctly, it didn't work
BTW, I haven't followed closely the discussions on d-tetex-maint (I'm
not subscribed), but can I suggest that when you break down the
package you create a cm-super package which depends on, say,
cm-super-debfiles, containing configuration files for Debian and
cm-super-fonts (possibly with other subdivisions) for the fonts
This way, if one changes just how the fonts plug into tetex, a small
download would be sufficient (I suppose that the fonts themselves
would be somewhat stable).
Well, that's it. Please let me know if you need more details.
Thank you for your work, Roger...
