Ticket #30820 (closed defect: invalid)
texlive-basic @23152_1+doc Missing cork.enc encoding file?
|Reported by:||nigel.stanger@…||Owned by:||dports@…|
Upgraded to TL 2011, attempted to build a PDF from a long-standing LaTeX document and got the following:
% latex Conference1 [ ...etc... ] % dvipdf Conference1 dvips: ! Couldn't find header file: cork.enc
(I’m using the latex/dvipdf route for this document because it uses PSTricks, but that has nothing to do with the problem. I can reproduce the problem with any LaTeX document simply by using latex/dvipdf.)
cork.enc doesn’t appear to exist in any texmf tree. Weirdly, however, as far as I can tell cork.enc wasn’t in TL 2010 either, yet the document builds fine under TL 2010 (and incidentally also did so under TL 2007 and 2009), so something has clearly changed somewhere. If cork.enc was to appear anywhere, it should presumably be in texmf-texlive-dist/fonts/enc/dvips/base.
The only thing I could find that explicitly mentions cork.enc is the xdvi config in texmf-texlive/xdvi, but this doesn’t appear to be significantly different from TL 2010, and is for xdvi, not dvips, so I think that’s probably not the cause.
I grabbed a copy of cork.enc from the catdvi distribution (the most recent version of it I could find, from http://www.ctan.org/pkg/catdvi) and dropped it into my personal texmf tree. This appears to have universally fixed the problem.
Let me know if there’s any other information you need.
