I tried this but was not getting any clickable links. I am using xdvi as my dvi viewer.

$xdvi --version
xdvik version 22.40v

This is the latest version available on Debian unstable. Which dvi viewer are you using? Which Debian distribution are you running? Any special options to be used while compiling etc.,?

for you.


Thanks for the sample files. I tried the test.dvi file you attached. I was not getting clickable links. When I click on one of the entries in the toc, all I get is a magnified box with corresponding text (This is the usual behaviour of xdvi when one clicks on a piece of text).
