tetex/texdoc

Oliver Vecernik
Hi,

I've installed:

tetex-base           3.0.0-3
tetex-bin            3.0.0-3
tetex-doc            3.0.0-3
tetex-extra          3.0.0-3
tetex-x11            3.0.0-3

Trying to read the docs fails:

$ texdoc web2c
Unable to start 'C:\cygwin\usr\share\texmf\doc\programs\web2c.dvi':
There is no application associated with the given file name extension.

but:

$ xdvi /usr/share/texmf/doc/programs/web2c.dvi &

works just fine.

$ uname -a
CYGWIN_NT-5.1 t636 1.5.18(0.132/4/2) 2005-07-02 20:30 i686 unknown
unknown Cygwin

How can I correct that?

Unset TEXDOCVIEW_dvi in your environment (and TEXDOCVIEW_txt, while you're
at it).  The default in texdoc is to start xdvi for .dvi files.
