*** Passepartout Frequently Asked Questions ***



    What does "Passepartout" mean?

	An early draft name for Passepartout was
	"Framer" since it deals with frames. (We like
	FrameMaker a lot, not that it has much in common with
	Passepartout.) This was a very dull name, so we changed it. A
	passepartout is a kind of cardboard frame you put around
	watercolour paintings.

    How do I pronounce "Passepartout"?

	Like "pus par two". Use a rolled French R if you
	like. The important thing is not pronouncing it like

    Are you guys French?

    Non. I mean no.



    Is there a public CVS repository?

    Yes there is. Run the following command to check out a
      fresh copy: "CVS_RSH=ssh cvs -d checkout
    Note that you will have to build your own
      configure script using
      automake and
      autoconf; see
      DEVNOTES for details.

    I have a problem with libxml++

	Passepartout 0.4 and later uses the stable libxml++ 1.0
	API. Versions prior to 0.4 will only be guaranteed to build
	with exactly the version or versions of
	libxml++ that are specified in the
	INSTALL file.

    Configure says libxml++ is unknown to pkg-config

	Pkg-config can't find libxml++, because it doesn't know
	where to look. Try adding the path to the file
	libxml++-1.0.pc to the environment variable
	PKG_CONFIG_PATH. If libxml++ is installed in
	/usr/local/ then the path is



    How do I edit text in Passepartout?

	You don't. You write the text in XML
	format in your favourite text editor, then you import the text
	into Passepartout. Read the User's Guide for more detailed

    If I import text into Passepartout, does that mean I can't
      change it afterwards?

	Not at all. Text is only imported by reference. If you edit
	and save changes to the XML file,
	Passepartout will notice the change and update the display.

    Does Passepartout support colored text?

	Not yet. Is does support grayscale text though. The
	<font> and
	<para> elements accept the
	gray attribute which can be a number
	between 0.0 and 1.0.

    Can I print documents from the command line?

	Not now, but in the future, we hope to make it possible to run
	Passepartout from a script.

    Can I use xml2ps as a stand-alone typesetter?

	Yes. Regrettably, xml2ps is poorly documented. The command
	xml2ps -p 400x600 -p 200x500 < foo.xml > prints the content of
	foo.xml on two pages (400 x 600 and 200 x
	500 points respectively) and saves the result in The file
	foo.xml must be in the xml2ps
	DTD. If you want to use another
	DTD, you will have to filter it through
	a stylesheet with xsltproc.
	xml2ps does not support images.

    Is there no TrueType support?

	No. PostScript Type 1 only, but we will have at least partial
	TrueType support in release 0.6.
