latex - 1/1

Replace pdflatex by xelatex


pdflatex does not natively support utf-8 (no fixed size characters) but xelatex does (see Swapping from pdfLaTeX to XeLaTex). I tried a couple of past in the past with no success and I finally remove all accents from pdf coming from notebooks. It seems to work now.


A few tips with Sphinx


Sphinx generates many warning when it builds the documentation despite the fact the result looks good. Some cases.


Conversion to latex is taking for ever


The unit tests are now scheduled using Jenkins. When the documentation is generated for the first time after a fresh installation of the machine (latex, sphinx…), the compilation can take for ever. This is due to extra packages needed by latex. When the process is run from a command line, a windows shows up asking for approval before going on installing the missing latex packages. As this command line is showing up in the output, it is just needed to executed from a command line window to import the missing package. After this short break, the latex compilation runs fine on Jenkins.
