Denmark is placed in the Central European Time zone (CET or MET,) which (in the winter) is equivalent to Greenwich Mean Time plus 1 (GMT+1.) You set the time zone on a Linux system by making a symbolic link between
/usr/lib/zoneinfo/localtime and the file in
/usr/lib/zoneinfo/ with a name corresponding to your zone or country. Danes will want to execute one of the commands
ln -sf /usr/lib/zoneinfo/MET /etc/localtimeor
ln -sf /usr/lib/zoneinfo/Europe/Copenhagen /etc/localtime
This automatically sets Daylight Saving Time (GMT+2) in the summer.
You synchronize the system time with the CMOS clock by issuing the command
clock as root. If your CMOS clock is set to GMT (a.k.a. UTC --- the standard on proper Unix systems) use
clock -u -sor if your CMOS clock is set to local time use
ghostscript: Add the command line option
ghostview: Define the following Xresource:
xdvi: See the entry for TeX/LaTeX in section International character sets in specific applications.
You can translate files between an ISO-8859-1 formatted text file and e.g. a DOS text file using codepage 850 with the
recode package. A DOS file called
foo.txt would be translated into a proper Unix file with the command
recode cp850:latin1 foo.txt
recode is available as
recode-3.4.tar.gz from all mirrors of the GNU archive.
