To Akhi Daniel...

Nov-27-2000 at 11:27 AM (UTC+3 Nineveh, Assyria)

Shlama Akhi Daniel,

I just installed Adobe Acrobat (v4.0) for Red Hat Linux....it works great! There are no problems with viewing the embedded Estrangelo font on either the Interlinear or the Grammar.

I highly recommend the Adobe product, as I also had trouble with the ghostscript viewer (the one supplied as standard with KDE). It's definitely worth the download time. It even comes with a script which allows you to launch Netscape with Acrobat plug-in support (just like Windows ).


Shlama w'Burkate,
Paul

Akhi Paul,

So, you made the switch huh? How are you liking Red Hat? I used it for years as I was learning Linux... but have kind of recently switched to Debian. And you are using KDE? How are you liking that? I've only tried it once(the other day actually), then went back to Gnome very quickly. I've been using it for a long time, and I'm kind of hooked.

Actually, I tried the Acrobat reader for Linux a couple of weeks ago. It does work very well. I am partial to Free/Open Source software(yep, I'm one of those), and almost have my system free of the old Netscape(next release of Mozilla, M18 is too slow). The ggv(Gnome Ghostview) viewer handles the Interlinear great, but not the Grammar. The Grammar I can view online, so I've decided to stick to doing it that way.

Thanks for remembering about me...

God Bless,

Daniel

Shlama Akhi Daniel,

Yes, I now have my own Linux machine
Still use Windows to create the Interlinear files, as I'm unsure of the availability of various tools on the Linux platform.....but they will be available soon, I'm sure.

Red Hat seems very good. I like the KDE X-Windows environment, at least for now, because it resembles pretty closely the Windows95 I am so accustomed to.

I'm glad everything is working out with the ghostview viewer. I'm sure you'll figure out how to display the Grammar sections also

One question, how did the installation of the Estrangelo font work for you? I have yet to do that on the Linux machine.

Akhi Paul,

Getting the Estrangelo font to work was pretty easy under XFree86 4.0.X... I did get it working with the xfstt font server before I upgraded though, which wasn't that hard either. Are you using Red Hat 6.2 or 7.0? Either way, if you any help getting it working, let me know. Feel free to email me at discipledaniel@yahoo.com as we should probably keep this board for discussing the Peshitta, not Linux.

What do you use to create the Interlinear files? Framemaker? They had a beta out, but they just announced they won't do Linux Framemaker anymore(at least for now)...

I have heard that KDE is very good for those transitioning from Windows. It's funny, I have been at least dual-boot Linux/Windows for over 4 years now, but have worked as the Systems/Network Administrator of a couple of all MS companies during that time. The biggest advantage of Gnome was it's ability to totally customize the interface(you can make it look like MS Windows, Mac OS, NeXT, etc). I could get rid off all those little MS things that bugged me over the years. Ha ha ha...

As for getting the grammar to work with the ghostscript viewers or xpdf, it looks like it might just be a bug or two in the programs. I'll report them, and we'll see if it is doable...

God Bless,

Daniel

Assyrian \ã-'sir-é-an\ adj or n (1998)   1:  descendants of the ancient empire of Ashur   2:  the Assyrians, although representing but one single nation as the direct heirs of the ancient Assyrian Empire, are now doctrinally divided, inter sese, into five principle ecclesiastically designated religious sects with their corresponding hierarchies and distinct church governments, namely, Church of the East, Chaldean, Maronite, Syriac Orthodox and Syriac Catholic.  These formal divisions had their origin in the 5th century of the Christian Era.  No one can coherently understand the Assyrians as a whole until he can distinguish that which is religion or church from that which is nation -- a matter which is particularly difficult for the people from the western world to understand; for in the East, by force of circumstances beyond their control, religion has been made, from time immemorial, virtually into a criterion of nationality.   3:  the Assyrians have been referred to as Aramaean, Aramaye, Ashuraya, Ashureen, Ashuri, Ashuroyo, Assyrio-Chaldean, Aturaya, Chaldean, Chaldo, ChaldoAssyrian, ChaldoAssyrio, Jacobite, Kaldany, Kaldu, Kasdu, Malabar, Maronite, Maronaya, Nestorian, Nestornaye, Oromoye, Suraya, Syriac, Syrian, Syriani, Suryoye, Suryoyo and Telkeffee. — Assyrianism verb
