fig2dev for DEBIAN
------------------

Metafont support
================

If you want to use the mf (metafont) output language, you need the
grafbase.mf (not graphbase.mf!), which is available from
CTAN: graphics/mfpic/source/grafbase.mf


CGM support
===========

To use the -b (binary) option for CGM export, the ralcgm program is
required.  This is currently not available as a Debian package, but
you may download the sources from
ftp://ftp.cc.rl.ac.uk/pub/graphics/ralcgm/


pstex
=====

There are many people heaving problems with the pstex driver.  The
problem is, that newer versions of fig2dev need \usepackage{color} to
work with pstex.  So simply add \usepackage{graphicx} and
\usepackage{color} to your LaTeX file before using pstex and
everything should work correct.


Big LaTeX fonts
===============

If you want to use LaTeX fonts bigger than 42pt, you have to add
\usepackage{type1cm} to your LaTeX file, which switches over to the
Type1 vector fonts, that are available in all sizes.
