Sorry about the Top Posting.
I normally only bottom post my reply if there is a specific item that I
am replying to; in that case I would format my reply as you have
requested. In this case I had only included the historical postings,
merely as a reference.
Ok. So what's the problem? Isn't the email button showing up? Don't
you get PDFs when you email the invoices to yourself?
I have no idea of how to implement it or how it would manifest itself.
There is certainly no Email button anywhere.
Your one-line posts aren't helping me help you.
Did you ensure that your ledgersmb.conf reads as I showed above?
Yes. However, at this point I should come clean. I am still using
SQL-Ledger on this particular machine. I have been participating in the
LedgerSMB list since it's inception and I am pretty sure I would not
have received any help from the SQL-Ledger List. Moreover, I am running
Ledger-SMB on my Laptop (with Colinux on top of Windows XP), but that
installation definitely doesn't have Latex installed.
But, Yes, I get the following result from running the 'grep' you
suggested (suitably modified).
bayserver:~# grep -i latex /opt/sql-ledger/sql-ledger.conf
use vars qw($userspath $spool $memberfile $templates $sendmail $language
$sid $latex %printer $gzip);
# if you have latex installed set to 1
$latex = 1;
# if the server can't find gzip, latex, dvips or pdflatex, add the path
You can test to see if LaTeX is installed & working properly by
grabbing a random .tex file off the next (Google has lots of
and running `latex filename.tex && dvipdf filename.dvi`.
Running the commandline as you suggested gives me the following output:
bayserver:# latex /opt/sql-ledger/mn2esample.tex && dvipdf
