Re: cjk-latex font problem


Do you have installed:
dvips-fontdata-n2bk, which includes:
/usr/share/texmf/fonts/vf/n2bk/dmjhira12.vf ?


I also have installed:
cjk-latex, dvipsk-ja, xdvik-ja, jtex-bin, dvips-fontdata-n2bk,
dvi2ps-fontdata-ja, gs-cjk-resource

I am not sure how many of them you actually need.

Note however that the SJIS example file still doesn't work for me, as
I don't have the haldwidth kana fonts <sokana> and don't know where
they can be found.  As I never create deliberately create SJIS files I
haven't investigated further.

If the above file works, could you please add the information to the
bug page?  I like the idea of CJK-latex suggesting the package.
