it is: "file type": "LaTeX PGF macros (*.tex)"
but maybe it is not yet compiled into your version. However the pgf
output plug-in is in the CVS-tree or in the last snapshots at
and you can recompile it yourself.
I've downloaded a recent CVS snapshot, and am trying to compile it on
Debian. I'm running into a variety of problems depending on exactly how I
progress. I'm probably doing a few things wrong. I may be missing some
libraries, but I'm not always sure of the appropriate name to apt-get vs.
what's listed on the web site.
Could someone who complies snapshots on Debian give me a few clues? Does
anyone offer a compiled Debian package of the snapshots?
I have MetaPost working well except for font sizes. It seems to me the font
scaling calculation for MetaPost is messed up. In order for fonts to appear
in LaTeX in a reasonable size, they have to be very very small in Dia.
I'm pursuing the CVS snapshot because I think I've seen some comments about
LaTeX/MetaPost font handling being improved in the shapshot version.
Also (though this may belong in another thread), I've downloaded the Python
plug-in for working with object group properties. How do I get Dia to
recognize & use this plug-in?
Thanks in advance,
