@Chilloutman we shouldn't run any updmap here because it is a texlive-htmlxml job. if this works it's better to submit a bug on the corresponding texlive package

I also had this problem: "dvips: ! invalid char 147 from font bchr8r"

Here's what I did to make it work:
- Install the "texlive-htmlxml" package, which has a file named "bchr8r.htf"
- Run "sudo updmap-sys" to update the file ""

Maybe adding "texlive-htmlxml" as a dependency and possibly running "sudo updmap-sys" or just "updmap" could fix it for everyone, but I'm unsure.

sed -i 's/python/python2/g' ${pkgdir}/usr/bin/dtrace

from the package function in the PKGBUILD. This is not needed anymore. dtrace will be fine then.

dtrace's shebang line is


Is that a typo? Should it be python2?

If not, I cannot find a package that installs python22. 'pacman -Qo python22' says no package owns it.

@kiz does it helps?

still got `dvips: Font bchb8r not found; using cmr10` even when `texlive-fontsextra` installed..

Thanks @julbrygd, was banging my head against the wall trying to figure that out. @dront78 please updated dependencies.

Can you add texlive-fontsextra to the dependencies, it is needed to abaoid the error message "dvips: Font bchb8r not found; using cmr10".

I can install this package on my laptop, but on my (headless) server I get this error while compiling:

dvips: Font bchb8r not found; using cmr10
dvips: ! invalid char 147 from font bchr8r
make[3]: *** [Makefile:613:] Error 1
rm tutorial.dvi

Shouldn't latex2html and texlive-latexextra only be a make dependency? If I'm getting it right, that only builds the docs at compile-time.
