This is a short guide to installing PAPPI on Linux.
It has been tested on a number of Linux platforms (RedHat 9, SuSE 9.1 and 9.2, as well as Fedora Core 1,2,3).
PAPPI was built using Sicstus Prolog 3.12
To test PAPPI after installation, follow the instructions in the MacOS X page, after the Mac-specific instructions, starting at the 3. Test PAPPI section in Running and Testing PAPPI.
rpm -Uvh pappi-2.0-linux.i386.rpm
These are included in a separate file here, which you should install
if PAPPI complains about not finding the Lucida fonts. They are
usually in the directory
Gzip'ed tar file: lucida-75dpi-iso8859-1.tar.gz (328KB)
To install the fonts, run (as root):
cd /usr/lib/X11/fonts/75dpi/ tar xzvf /path_to_lucida_file/lucida-75dpi-iso8859-1.tar.gz mkfontdir . service xfs restart
/usr/local/libas a search path for libraries.
You may have to add a line
/etc/ld.so.conf in case PAPPI doesn't find the required
libraries. After adding the line, run
ldconfig (as root).
