I finally decided to put my scripts to use MyriadPro with LaTeX online. While preparing this, fixed some more issues with Myriad and found some with Minion. Also I wanted to use the swash letters of CronosPro with Myriad. So I modified the script to include the support for all three fonts in one repository:

FontPro at GitHub

I think for a lot of purposes this gives reasonable results. My modifications so far:

• support of MyriadPro: math and text; tuned accent positions of italic roman letters and of italic and upright greek letters; use swash letters of CronosPro as mathcal; loadable with eg MinionPro
• text only support of CronosPro
• fixed typo in MinionPro.dtx connected with microtype; take kerning
information of accents and swash letters into account
(maybe a change in the LCDF typetools made the last point necessary)

Obviously, there is still work to do. One of the major points is the ability to use the scripts with lcdf typetools > 2.69. Unfortunately, I was not able to identify the cause why the adjust-oml gives an error for the accent positions for the letters eg rho1, beta1, etc for me. It is strange that on some systems there is no problem at all; I was not able to find the difference between these systems…

The major points connected with MyriadPro is the adaptation of MnSymbol for MyriadPro. So far, I did not have the time to look at it. In addition, I did not succeed to tune the accent position of upright roman letters in math mode. The UP* information in adjust-oml.mtx seems to be connected to mathnormal… On the other hand, kerning pairs including the german double ss which is meant as the skew character in the setup (and which works with the swash letters of MinionPro) did not have any effect, either…

Furthermore, the swash letters of CronosPro are slightly to small for MyriadPro, so an option to scale the CronosPro (or all fonts that are based on these scripts) would be an nice feature. So far, I was not able to fully understand the font definition part in the MinionPro.dtx.

Everyone is invited to try the scripts. Anyone with an idea to solve the mentioned problems is also.

This is my workflow to develop RAW pictures from my Canon 40D. My aim is to keep all RAW files, which allows to repeat the process. To minimize repeated work, I want to tag pictures as early as possible; in the RAW converter in my case.

1. Download the pictures from the camera. This is done by the following script. It put the pictures under $FOLDER/yyyymm/yyyymmdd/yyyymmdd-hhmmss-XX where XX is a counter for pictures with the exact same time including seconds. Furthermore, it creates a hard link of the files also in$FOLDER/backup/yyyymm/yyyymmdd/ so files can be deleted and still a backup is available, which does not take any additional space. These backup files can be deleted from time to time. Update: The renaming options in digikam have increased since I wrote that script, so you can also use digikam for that (except the simple backup mechanism).
#!/bin/bash

extension=CR2
FOLDER=/home/sebschub/Dokumente/Bilder/RAW

extensionLC=echo $extension | tr "[:upper:]" "[:lower:]" echo Getting RAW files from camera mkdir$FOLDER/temp
cd $FOLDER/temp echo Temporary saving to$FOLDER/temp

gphoto2 --get-all-raw-data

for i in *.$extensionLC; do # Datum fuer Dateinamen date_stamp=exiftool -DateTimeOriginal -d "%Y%m%d-%H%M%S"$i
yyyymmdd_hhmmss=$(expr substr "echo$date_stamp" 22 36)

# Datum fuer Verzeichnisse mit Bindestrichen
date_stamp=exiftool -DateTimeOriginal -d "%Y-%m-%d" $i yyyymmdd=$(expr substr "echo $date_stamp" 22 32) yyyymm=$(expr substr "echo $yyyymmdd$" 1 7)

mkdir -p ../$yyyymm/$yyyymmdd
mkdir -p ../backup/$yyyymm/$yyyymmdd

unique_num=1
i_renamed="../$yyyymm/$yyyymmdd/$yyyymmdd_hhmmss-printf "%02i"$unique_num.$extensionLC" # falls Datei mit gleichem Datum und Zeit vorhanden sind, # unique_num hochzaehlen (zwei Ziffern, aber ne cam mit mehr als # 99 fps waer schon geil ;) while [ -e$i_renamed ]; do

2. Geotag pictures. I use geotag for that. Be sure to set it to use xmp files to save that. Just to be sure. Update: Tagging can also be done in digikam, but saving to XMP sidecar files for exchanging information with bibble is not supported yet. There is a wish in the bugtracker, though. Once it is implemented, tagging should be also possible in digikam which, at the moment, would be a lot more convenient that it is in bibble 5.
3. Use bibble 5 to develop raws. It should have read the geotags automatically. I enter all information of the pictures here, delete not wanted, rate them … At the moment, tagging is not really comfortable but as mentioned I want tags etc as deep as possible in the workflow. I include a tag in all pictures which describe the event of the picture. This tag will be used to sort the jpgs in digikam and on the disk (e.g. Event; Birthday Peter 36th). Finally, the generated jpgs are put in a temporary folder.
4. Sort pictures using the Event tag. This is done by the following script (the new jpgs are arguments of that script). Update: I fixed a bug of a not removed ‘,’ at the end of the folder and decided to sort pictures like $YEAR/$DATE event.:
#!/bin/bash

SORTTAG="Ereignis"
SEP="|"

TARGET="/home/sebschub/Dokumente/Bilder/Sammlung"

MVARG="-v"
INTERACTIVE="true"
SUCCESS="true"
while :; do case "$1" in --help) echo "Usage: basename$0 [-f] file1.jpg [file2.jpg...]" >&2
exit 0
;;
-f)
INTERACTIVE="false"
shift 1
;;
"")      # No more args - done
break
;;
*)
i="$1" shift 1 if [[$INTERACTIVE == "true" ]]; then
MVARG="$MVARG -i" INTERACTIVE="false" fi case$i in
*.jpg|*.JPG|*.jpeg|*.JPEG)
# get date and year only
date_stamp=exiftool -DateTimeOriginal -d "%Y-%m-%d" $i yyyymmdd=$(expr substr "echo $date_stamp" 22 33) yyyy=$(expr substr "echo $yyyymmdd" 1 4) # get HierarchicalSubject with (at least)$SORTTAG beginning with either ": " or ", "
temp=exiftool -HierarchicalSubject $i | \ grep --only-matching --color=never -e "$$, \|:$$$SORTTAG.*"
end=$(expr length "echo$temp")
# remove the two beginning characters and Ereignis|
temp=$(expr substr "echo$temp" 12 $end) # if "," still in string remove rest end=$(expr index "echo $temp" ,) if [$end -ne 0 ]; then
end=$[$end-1]
temp=$(expr substr "echo$temp" 1 $end) fi echo "Ereignis:$temp"
folder=echo $temp | sed -e 's?/?_?g' -e 's?|?/?g' folder="$TARGET/$yyyy/$yyyymmdd $folder" mkdir -p "$folder"
mv $MVARG$i "$folder/$i"
;;
*)
echo "$i is (probably) no jpeg, canceling" SUCCESS="false" break ;; esac if [[$SUCCESS == "false" ]]; then
break
fi
;;
esac done

echo FINISHED
5. Use digikam to view the pictures. digikam should import all the pictures. There is some minor information that is not read correctly (or saved correctly by bibble?) but most of the things just work.

If I ever have to change a tag or information, I go back to step 3. The script of 4 does the sorting automatically. In digikam, I do a Reread Metadata from Image(s).

LOL Emacs rocks!

Zapfino by Herman Zapf is nice font. This is what I think and I hope I will think some years in the future. The problem is that everyone starts to use it for every purpose. In the last time, I’ve seen it on too many advertisements and product descriptions. Maybe we could blame Apple. They ship Zapfino with OS X… Anyway, I hope Zapfino will not be hated like Times (it’s ok on obituaries, not for every document. Yes, it’s you, M\$ Word user!).

While writing my thesis I found a problem of the nomencl package in conjunction with the KOMA-Script classes: the header is not changed from the one which is used in the section before the nomenclature section. A simple change of \thenomenclature works. Just add the following into the preamble:

\makeatletter
\def\thenomenclature{%
{
\@ifundefined{chapter}%
{
\section*{\nomname}
}%
{
\chapter*{\nomname}
}%
}%
