Re: The "Unix Philosophy 2020" document

For those readers that meet the following critieria:

   - Are unfortunate enough to only speak a single language, English;
   - And simply want to read an English version of the document;
   - Are (un)fortunately running a current Debian installation with missing
   Latex dependencies;

Do the following:

mkdir -p ~/Projects/ ; cd ~/Projects

git clone

cd ./up2020 ; sudo aptitude install latexmk

Edit the first line of the latexmkrc file in the up2020 directory so it
looks like:

_at_default_files = ('up2020-en');

Then in the up2020 directory, execute this command:


The resulting document, while incomplete, will be created as a
English-language PDF named up2020-en.pdf.

Sorry if this added noise to the mailing list. It was just frustrating to
not have the document build because of missing software dependencies on my
system; doing this tweak allowed me to at least read it.
