since I installed R-0.90.0 (Linux 2.0.25) I have problems with generating
printable output with 'help()'.
Default output to the terminal ('echo $PAGER' gives 'less') works o.k..
When invoking 'help(topic,offline=T)' all the usual procedures seem to
start: 'top' reports invocation of latex as well as of dvips. But after
finishing there is no file; neither *.ps nor *.dvi files exist.
I checked for suspicous environment settings but couldn't find anything.
Also my dvips without problems produces files and doesn't send its output
to the printer when being invoked from the shell level. I thought of
problems there because my machine has no local printing device.
I set 'options(printcmd="")' which didn't help either.
Lots of thanks in advance ...
